On Saturday the Inspire VCUK Racing Team had Cory Edmondson and Nathan Hawthorn racing in Cartmel and it proved to be one of the wettest days of the season so far!
A great start to the race with Cory, Nathan and Isaac Peatfield (Bolton Hotwheels) making up an early leading group on a particularly short course for the youths that included long wet grassy sections that travelled downhill to some hurdles and then back up the hill through the woods.
Cory and Isaac broke away quite early leaving all the other riders in their wake and then took turns to lead the race.
Coming out of the woods on the second lap Cory failed to appear and Isaac was way out in front on his own. When Nathan passed the pits we then learned that Cory had suffered a mechanical and was being held up trying to free his jammed chain!
Eventually Cory came into sight but was out of contention for the win as Isaac had now built a considerable lead ahead of Nathan and Tyler Koch.
Lap by lap and bunny hopping the hurdles Cory was putting In a fantastic fight back whilst Nathan putting down an excellent performance to maintain his 2nd position.
In the end, it was Isaac Peatfield that deservedly took the win, followed by a fantastic 2nd place for our own Nathan Hawthorn, with Tyler Koch rounding out the podium in 3rd place.
A disappointed Cory rolled home in 4th but lived to fight another day!
