Durrin grabs a podium spot in the UCI C2 Gloucester GP
Written by Velo Staff on 17th October 2016
On Saturday Jeremy raced the Gloucester Grand Prix UCI C2 in Massachusetts.
It was a fast, dry and dusty course which meant that much of the race was group racing. So it meant that Durrin needed to race smart and stay out of trouble.
With 2 laps to go Curtis White of Cannondale Cyclocross World attacked. The rest of the group were too busy looking at each other to counter the attack and so Curtis powered away to take a commanding win. Coming into the final few corners it was still a group of 5 together fighting for the remaining podium spots. Durrin lead onto the pavement and got pipped to the line by Danny Summerhill of Maxxis Shimano.
Durrin had this to say:
”I am very happy to come away with a podium at Gloucester- a home race in front of my family and friends. I felt really good all race and felt in control. The one regret I have is not acting quick enough when Curtis attacked. We were all too busy looking at each other to see who would counter. But overall a solid ride for me. I needed to podium here because Gabby has pretty much always been on the podium in this race, so I needed to continue the tradition!!”
