Hat Trick of wins as Caton Hits Top Gear

He may not be the loudest of the Anders TMG Horizon team, but his legs do plenty of talking and, having hit a rich seam of form in recent weeks, Paul Caton is the quiet man everyone has to watch.

On August 19th, in hot conditions, Caton watched as a number of early attacks went up the road and bided his time. With just over a  lap to go, he teamed up with John Alderman of Ciclisti Vecchi and established a break. After just over half a lap though, he noticed his fellow escapee suffering and attacked: "I thought it was now or never really," he recalls. "There was definitely a danger of getting caught after all that effort."

The attack paid off and Caton crossed the line with the opposition clearly out of sight.

He's had a bit of practice doing this
Back in action on Sept 2nd, he took another win in round 10 of the MStina Jersey Series at the Dulwich Paragon Race in Kent

And at the final round of the Percy Stallard Series in Cambridgeshire 2 weeks later, he sprinted to his 3rd win in 4 weeks.

"I'm trying not to get too carried away with all this," he says. "I'm still building for the track World Championships in the 1st week of October so it's important to stay focussed."
