Club News 23rd Nov.

A bit belated club news this week due to work! At the weekend we had a number of riders taking part in cross and MTB events and with some success, starting with the cross, once again Neil Ellison took the win in the vets, whilst in the over 50’s I took 35th, Mark Eidem despite being handicapped by taking the top of his finger off the night before was 53rd, and Ant Snyman was 78th In the seniors it was great to see Sean Downey back with a race number on and did well on his return to finish 66th. Sunday saw George Fowkes and Gosia McPherson win their respective race at the Gorrick MTB race, with Agne Kudirkaite finishing 2nd in the sport event with an improving Alex Earl a little further behind in 5th, in the vets race Paul White just missed the podium with 4th place whilst Simon Slater took 7th in the grand vets.

This Sunday coming there is an MTB ride at 10 am meeting at Stony Lane get in touch with Wayne for more details or check out the FB post. For 5 of us it a trip to the seaside as we race in the De Panne beach race. Monday we have club night at The Crown from 8.30 p.m. then Wednesday we have a social MTB ride planned meet at the Malt Shovel at 7 p.m. If people are keen then there may be a road session either Tuesday or Thursday evening so post up if interested.

As hopefully everyone knows by now it is our first session at Calshot a week Saturday the 1st December, still got room for a few more to attend. It is great fun, much better than London velodrome and a real buzz, no experience is necessary other than the ability to ride a bike! The club van will be leaving at 9 if anyone need a lift then let me know ASAP. Then later in the evening it is the cub annual Xmas do, with Matt and Henry taking in the reins of the organising committee I am sure it will be a good affair so don’t miss out and get in touch to get a ticket

We also have a couple more space spaces for next year French road trip if you want to come let me know pronto and get those deposits in ASAP, full details are on the club website at https://www.westdraytonmbc.co.uk/forums/topic/french-road-trip-2019/
