    A busy week on the club front starting off with the racing news, Sam Phillips last Wednesday won the grand vet class at the Beastway series so a big well done to him,
    Commiserations and a speedy recovery to our young star George Fowkes who broke his hand at a recent MTB race. At the Southern series at Crow Hill it was nice to see a few from the club showing the club colours off,Rick Featherston was the clubs best finisher coming 3rd in the grand vets,with Sam Phillips in 9th, Charlotte was 4th in the Expert, Gosia 4th in the vets,Neil was 9th in the vets with Paul White in 13th and Nick Try was 12th in the sports. On the roa front Jonny Sargeant took an excellent 2nd place on Tuesday night at Hillingdon with Jason unfortunately a crash victim, it was nice to to see Sam Thompson making hs debut and although he struggled with the speed I am sure within a couple pf weeks he will get used to it., socially over the week there was the usual Wednesday evening MTB ride and a few social rides over the weekend
    Ok hopefully everyone is aware it is the clubs race at our local circuit at Black Park this Sunday the 4th June, pre entries are fairly low so we really need to push this event, remember if we do not run races at Black Park we can not do any work on the trails that we regularly ride in the park, so lets make sure this event is a success by either entering or helping out.
    A big thanks to all those that have volunteered to help out, we could still do with a couple more marshals and a few people t help with signing on so please get in touch if you or someone you know can assist.. The course will be being prepped Thursday, Friday and then Saturday afternoon. For those who want a preview of the circuit there is training Thursday evening and then there will be a gentle ride from the Malt Shovel meeting at 9.30 Saturday to do a couple of easy laps.
    Monday night it is club night at The Crown PH from 8.30, it is hoped we will have some samples of the new club clothing for people to try for size, so if you are in the market for new kit then make sure you pop along.
    For the Ladies next Tuesday night there is a ladies night at the Specialized Concept store, so try and get down there as there likely to be a few freebies being given out.
    As it is the end of the month it is time for people to think about who deserves both the rider and club person of the month, so make sure you have your say on the forum on the club site. Also on the site are details of what looks an interesting race the DePanne beach race, http://beach-endurance.be/home/EN/index.html there area few of us interested, so check the link out and post up if keen
