Ross Lamb – Piling up the top three finishes in Belgium

-

The last few weeks we’ve been catching up with the young men who are out there in the Heartlands across Europe ‘doing it’ – Brittany, Lombardy and of course, Flanders.

Englishman Ross Lamb – another man supported by the stalwart David Rayner Fund – has been notching up the results in the Flatlands:

  • 4th in Heusden-Zolder
  • 2nd at Pulderbos
  • 2nd at Booischot
  • 3rd in the Memorial Vanconinsloo
  • 3rd at Huldenberg
  • 2nd at Geetbeets and
  • 2nd in Linden Lubbeek.

If you’re unaware of the David Rayner Fund; he was a successful young English professional who competed in Europe, the UK and USA. He lost his life in an appalling nightclub incident where a bouncer overstepped the mark.

The Fund’s website explains;

After his tragic death, the cycling community wanted to support his memory by giving other young riders the chance to follow in Dave’s footsteps and since then over £600,000 in grants have been given to riders to enable them to race abroad.

Among the riders supported have been Dave Millar (one of the very first recipients of a grant), through to more recent champions like Adam Yates.’

High times we heard what the 21 year-old Mr. Lamb had to say for himself.

Some nice results so far this season, Ross.
