    First of all don’t forget to get your entries in for our next MTB promotion the Night of the Knobbly Tread on the 9th September at Black Park and spread the word about the event some good prizes will be on offer thanks to the Specialized Concept Store in Ruislip.
    This weekend there were some great results for the club in the last round of the Southern Series , Rick Featherston was the winner in the grand vets class, Neil Ellison also had his best result of the series with 3rd in the vets with Roger Fowkes 5th, Chris Try took 3rd in the Junior class whilst Kasia and Gosia took 3rd and 4th in the vet ladies, George Fowkes returning to racing after injury was 5th in the juvenile with Nick Try 9th in the sports class whilst elsewhere Sam Phillips took 4th in the Eastern series in the grand vets and the club was well represented at Hillingdon by Jonny Sargeant, Zubhair along with Nick and Chris T all finishing in the big bunch sprint.
    Over last week we also had the MTB training on Thursday, then Sat a social MTB ride which had a tea stop at the Dogs Trust in Harefield where we presented a cheque from the profits of this years Bucks Off Road Sportive, Sunday a few of went to the Chiltern Cycling festival which was very well attended and worth a visit.
    This week as usual there is the social MTB ride on Wednesday, meet at the Malt Shovel PH 7 p.m., a few of us are also thinking of doing the Bath RC 10 mile TT around the Black Park on our road bikes to see how much faster we can go from last week when we did it on MTBs, Thursday there is the MTB training at the old Ski Slope in Uxbridge, this is both skills and fitness and is suitable for all standards so try and make it if you want to improve your MT Biking, Saturday the plan is a social MTB ride probably heading out to Black Park
    as we need to start finalizing a cct for the forthcoming Night race, this will be meeting at 9.30 at the Malt Shovel. Sunday for the very keen it is the National Cross Country Champs race and for those not racing a road ride is planned, meet 9.30 Malt Shovel.
    There is a post up on the club website for race/club person of the month so make sure you vote.
