Owen got 4th place in the race which took place over a 90 mile course near Chelmsford. The race was over a very tough course which decimated the 80 strong field which contained the best riders in the region many of whom will compete in the Premier Calendar and Tour Series this year.
Owen proved himself as one of the strongest riders in the field as he got into a breakaway group that eventually dictated the race result. 4 riders managed to slip away over the last 2 laps gaining a 30 second lead. But, Owen set off in pursuit and hauled them back overtaking one of the breakaway and getting to within 5 seconds of 3rd place.
This season, Owen has been riding for Twenty3c-Focus in Premier Calendar events throughout the country and will represent them in 2 of the Tour Series races over the next few weeks.
Toby Parnell, Ed Farnell and Felix Barker also competed in the race, riding strongly to finish the gruelling course.
