Good to see those that attended the Clubs Christmas party on Saturday, hopefully everyone had a good time, a big well done to Henry Howe and Neil Ellison on winning the annual awards of club person and club racer of the year respectively. Also a big thanks to Gosia and Hannah for the input into making the event happen,
On the racing front last weekend the weather hit a number of events but Neil Ellison continued his run of good placings in the National Trophy Series taking 4th at a snowy Bradford .
A new club clothing kit order is to be opened today, if you need any new kit then follow the instructions on the club website.
Due to the current weather the riding plans for this week are going to have to be a bit fluid, the regular Tuesday night road training is going to be put on hold for a month or so to get Christmas out the way and hopefully the worst of the weather, Saturday we are planning on a social MTB ride meeting at the Malt Shovel at 9.30 a.m. then Sunday for the MTB racers there is a round of the Brass Monkeys series, there is also likely to be a club ride either road or MTB so keep checking the clubs website/Fb page for details. Then Monday night is it the final club night of the year meeting at The Crown PH at 8.30, whilst the winter is upon us a few of us are doing some weights at Brunel University at 6.30 on Mondays if anyone else fancies coming along get in touch
For those coming on the clubs road trip to France, hopefully you have now booked your flights.
Don’t forget that as we are approaching the middle of December that clubs subs are due, so please make sure you renew promptly.
A number of people expressed an interest in a day at Calshot indoor track this has now been booked for the 18th Feb, if you are coming please make sure you pay the deposit ASAP to confirm it will be viable to run the session. For those that have never ridden an indoor track before, it is a real buzz and comes highly recommended and you never know you could be the next Chris Hoy!
