TEAM Sportscover’s Duncan Moralee was pipped at the post in the first BBM Bikes Road Race of 2011, held in Pickburn.
Moralee had to settle for third behind race winner Jack Cutsworth (Wheelbase) and runner up Dieter Droger (CF Race Team) in a thrilling climax to the 50km event.
Team Sportscover are captained by Doncaster based cycling legends John Tanner and Kevin Dawson.
The Yorkshire-based elite cycling team are set to compete in the 3050 mile Race Across America later this month to raise funds for Help for Heroes, along with team sponsors STG of Castleford and The Orthodontic Clinic at Doncaster.
Event two will take place next Wednesday at Pickburn, with entry places still available.
