What a superb weekend on the results side; at the Central Cross at Hillingdon it was a 1st and 3rd for Neil Ellison and Sean Downey with Jorge in 10th in the senior event and as a bonus Graeme Taylor took 2nd in the Novice event
At the Brass Monkeys series there was a win for Jackie Roberts in the 2hr Vets Ladies,,2nd place for Reg pay in the 2hr Juniors, 12th for Nick Evans, 2hrs Seniors,3rd for Jon Pierce in the 2hrs vets with Paolo 56th, Rob Jackson was 2nd in the Grd Vets 3 hr with Julian Paphitis 46th, ,Matt Craner was 3rd in the 4hr vets with Agata 5th in the 4 hrs Ladies so well done to all that took part especially those that made the podiums.
On the social side a big thanks to Dave T and Dave W who lead social rides Sat and Sunday, as I was working missed out on both as well as the racing so not sure how many were out but hopefully those that were enjoyed the rides.
Most of you will know that it is time to renew your club membership, prices go up at the end of December so time to get your money into save a fiver .As usual there are packages where you can take different levels of membership which will entitle you to free entries in the club races .
This week we have road training on Tuesday at Hillingdon 6 p.m. and then an MTB socail ride Sat, meet at the Malt Shovel 9:30 or Go Ape at 10 a.m. I will be doing the Park Run so wil see everyone at Go Ape. On Sunday there will be two rides Dave W is organising a social rid whilst I am looking at a 3hr road ride
I am also hoping to go to the ski slope on Friday afternoon and do a bit of work at the venue if anyone else is around and wants to help out

Cheers Chris
