    This week just gone was the Nationals for the keen members of the club, results wise all impressive considering this is the race of the season, in the Elite Men, Sam Edwards finished 25th in some very impressive company, in the vets race Roger Fowkes was 11th, in the grand vets Rick Featherstion was 6th with Sam Phillips in 17th, in the juvenile George returning to racing after his recent injury finished 28th whilst Nick Try rode one of the support events on Saturday but unfortunately suffered another crash which dropped him down to 19th . On the TT front Marc Wilmott 1st and Clive Evans 2nd with Gosia 1st Lady was the great result from the Bath RC 10
    Over the week we had social MTB rides both Wednesday and Saturday and also MTB training Thursday and a road ride Sunday so lots of variety and as usual this week has much the same

Wednesday social MTB ride from the Malt Shovel meet 7 p.m. , Thursday MTB training meet 6.30 at the Uxbridge Athletics track car park then Saturday there is a Look Out rode planned meet either at the main car park at 9.30 or if wanting a club lift at my place at 8.45 a.m. Also this weekend it is the 24/12 so good luck to those taking part in this classic event Hopefully someone will post up a local ride for Sunday.Check out FB later !
