Jimmy Parvin wins at Flamingo Land

Prologue’s Jimmy Parvin took a very well earned win on a wet and wild evening at Kirby Misperton at NYERRL #4.

Jimmy was active from the start, soloing off the front early to spend one lap on his own a couple of hundred meters up the road. With very wet conditions, the field whittled down fast and by the time it came back together only circa 30 were left. With one lap to go, Jimmy again attacked off the front with Matthew Burt (Leeds Uni Cycling) and Joe Wilkinson (FTR Milltag) and they built a healthy gap. Joe eventually dropped back to the pack with a couple of miles to go and his team mate Daniel McDermott went immediately on the offence bridging solo to the front two. These three stayed away from a fast chasing pack to claim the podium. The sprint behind was won by Chris Wilson (VSCC), ahead of Chris Hoole (FTR Milltag) and Scott Wilson (Manilla RT). The results see Jimmy take the lead in the individual competition (27 points), 7 ahead of his closest competition. Prologue RT Team Mate, seasoned veteran Matthew Mannakee, was unable to add to their points tally as one of a few riders who were forced to an early ‘bath’ from an unfortunate puncture.
