ROTHERHAM’S Russell Downing is hoping to end the first half of his season in style after a series of recent frustrations.

Downing will take part in Sunday’s Amstel Gold Race in the Netherlands before taking a short break from competitive action. He told The Star: “I’m looking forward to the race but it’s been a bit frustrating with a few falls. My legs have been feeling good so I’ll see how I am after last weekend’s Paris-Roubaix.”
