Velocite Geos takes first UK win


Fantastic photo from Paul Douglas.

Matrix Fitness – Prendas rider Annie Simpson put in a magnificent ride yesterday at round one of the Johnson Health Tech GP series in Oxford. During the race Annie was part of two breakaways in which she also took 2nd place in both Sprint laps of the race, securing her the Sprint jersey. On the final lap, Annie took the lead ahead of the only technical section, putting a gap between her, Hanna Barnes (Team Ibis Cycles) and Jo Tindley (VC St Raphael).

“I kicked out of the last of the 3 corners and got a small gap” said Simpson after the race. “I’m not an out and out sprinter, so even splitting the group seemed like a good idea. I pushed on all the way down the back straight and knew if I could carry a gap into the last corner, I could take the win. That’s the way it worked out and I couldn’t be happier.”

Annie took both the individual win and the sprint jersey, while the Matrix Fitness – Prendas team took the overall team win by just 2 points from Node4.
