1st, 3rd, 5th and 6th for the KRCC boys

There was cause for celebration in the ranks of the Kuota-road.cc team ahead of Tuesday's opening Tour Series round as Dan Davies sprinted away from the bunch to take a fine win at Mallory Park circuit on Thursday.

After some nice teamwork at Mallory Park, Dan attacked in the closing stages and rode the last 2 miles on his own to take the win ahead of the chasing group which also featured a big Kuota-road.cc contingent.

After a slow start to the season, Jeroen Janssen showed his form is returning to take 3rd place and Jon Mozley rode the last 2 laps on a softening tyre to take 5th. 18-year-old Mat Bailey, after a very good race for the team, took 6th while Jefte de Bruin, who had worked hard throughout the race for the team, ended up finishing in the bunch.

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

Oh Lordy. Before we get too excited, we should inject an air of reality and not to mention impartiality by mentioning what the Canary Wharf 'home boys' from Rapha-Condor-Sharp are up to. The good news is their Dan Craven and others are safely out of the way in Ireland doing the RAS race in which he won the first stage yesterday. The bad news is that National Champion Kristian House has been with the rest of the team doing the Tour of Japan where he won the penultimate stage. Don't know yet how it finished up but I believe they are flying straight back for the Tour Series at Canary Wharf. With a bit of luck, they'll be so jet-lagged they'll doze off in the changing room. Before the race, that is. There's a good blog here about the fun of riding the Tour of Japan http://blog.condorcycles.com/

Well, then I can report that, according to my wife, Jeroen 'JJ' Janssen (Kuota-road.cc) is just ever so slightly better looking than Kristian House (Rapha-Condor-Sharp) and she does have exceptionally high standards, obviously. So, there you have it. Kuota-road.cc wins.

It seems I spoke too soon about Dan Craven being 'safely' out of the way in Ireland.

Luckily, doesn't sound too bad. Shame about Luis Mas Bonet's finger.
