Despite one or two useful looking rider combinations, it didn't come off, perhaps not helped by a higher number of quality riders in the field than usual, and the fact that it turned out to be quite a still day.
Ian meanwhile, was sitting pretty in the main bunch, not getting too excited and saving it for the almost inevitable gallop. As with Round 4 there was a crash with 1.5 to go and some run -offs on to the grass but he positioned himself nicely and took 4th place behind winner Adam Thompson of Reading CC who was 2nd to Neil last week.
Baynesy finds his way through the closing metres. Thanks Dave Hayward @digidave
