SCC completed an impressive 1-2-3 at Round 11 of the South Staffs Road Race League on Thursday with Neil Ruston, Kevin Payton, Simon Smewin, supported by a big team on the road, finishing in the top 3 spots.
Kevin attacked on the last lap going up Six Ashes and managed to stay away from the group until 1/2 mile from the end, and then had the determination to get on Sie and Neil’s wheel as they came past and stay with them as they rode off the front. The team work displayed by SCC was fantastic with riders sitting in and leaving the others to chase Kevin down.

Here’s how they got on.
With all that she’s achieved it’s easy to over look the fact that Hannah Payton finished 23rd, after being held up by a crash in the final sprint, in the 2018 National Road Race on Sunday.
Well done Hannah
