This week there has not been much happening on the race front for club members but it was good to see both Jonny Sargeant and Nick Try down at the Hillingdon Road circuit taking part in the West Thames series, both finishing in the bunch , hopefully next week there will be a few more from the club down at the venue and we can get a top result.
Socially last week, the training on Thursday was well attended and there was a good turn out for the Swinley MTB ride also a few out on the Sunday social road ride with a coffee stop thrown in on the way back in Gerrards Cross. Hopefully everyone who wanted kit put their order in as this latest kit order has now closed, I have ordered a few extra S/S jerseys in most sizes so if you did miss out you may be lucky when the order arrives at the end of July.
Rides this week are as usual, tonight (Wed) there is the social MTB ride, meet 7 p.m. at the Malt Shovel, Thursday it is the MTB training at the Old Ski slope in Uxbridge, all welcome meet at the Athletics track car park off Gatting way. For a number of us at the weekend there is the Scott Marathon at Minehead, the plan is the club van will be going down Friday, currently there are 2 spaces available whilst others will be going down either Friday evening or Saturday morning, check out the forum on the club website for full full details.Sunday for those not going to the Scott event John Jones is planning a 100 mile road ride which will be a steady pace so why not join him, details are on the club facebook page.
We are looking for nominations for the club racer/person of the month anyone got any suggestions, my suggestion for both would be Neil for sorting out the routes for the French trip and his sub 20 minute 10 mile TT ride, anyone got any other suggestions?
No one has come forward to volunteer with the marketing of the night race the Night of the Knobbly Tread race at Black Park which is to be held on the 9th September any volunteers? Hopefully club members will start getting their entries in soon.
Next Wednesday we run our annual Knobbly Tyres 10 for a week, for those who have not done the event before it is a 10 mile Time trial which is a race where people set of at minute intervals and try and ride solo as fast as they can, there are prizes for the three fastest riders , our current champion being Roger Fowkes and also prizes for the first three on handicap times, so everyone has a chance of a win, so let me know if you can make it, it is a fun event.
On the club website there is details of a beach race in November and which looks like it could be a good club trip, so check it out at http://www.westdraytonmbc.co.uk/forums/topic/race-tailor-made-for-clive-de-panne-beach-race/ and post up if keen.
See you on a ride soon.
