The B-side: National B road race round-up, 7 March

Results from the Primavera Road Race, the first national road race rankings and National B calendar forward look

After the early season Perfs Pedal road race last month, March will see ten National B road races take place, seven for men, three for women.

The first of these, the Primavera Road Race, took place at the weekend. Samuel Beckett of the Wales Racing Academy took the win, ahead of Angus Hawkins (Spirit Bontrager BSS Rotor) and Joseph Rees (Embark-Bikestrong).

Farley Barber (Spirit Bontrager BSS Rotor) is the early leader of our inaugural national road race rankings, having finished 7th at the Primavera and 4th at Perfs.

Next weekend will see two more men’s National B road races take place: the Evesham Vale Road Race and the 38th Jock Wadley Memorial Road Race. The first women’s National B road race of the year – The Peaks 2 Day, which also hosts a men’s race – takes place the following weekend. See our calendar here for more details of what’s coming up.
