A very busy week with the running of the Black Park race, as always nice to see a few from the club racing, even better to see wins from Rick Fetherston, Agne and George Fowkes, with podiums for Alex and Gosia, numbers wise it was a reasonable turnout and a good start for the new Central region MTB series.
A big thanks to all those that helped out on any way with the event certainly with MSG taking over the admin/lap scoring there was less work for me but there were things that I feel we do better than them so what happens next year if we can still promote at Black Park will have to be discussed once we have recovered from this year’s efforts.
Elsewhere there were good results at Hillingdon with Jack Shuttleworth taking 3rd in the 3rds with Agne also top 10 in the same In the Beastway series once again Sam Phillips just missed out on the win taking 2nd in the grd vets.
Training-wise both the MTB training and road training were well attended and there were also people out on an MTB social ride Saturday.
This week Tuesday there was an MTB ride from the Concept store in Ruislip meeting at the back of the shop at 6.30 P.M. a number of others will be racing at Hillingdon be great to see a good turnout, so why not come along and test your legs, Wednesday there is MTB training at Black Park-meet at the Green space where the race started at 6 for the skills training and 6.30 for the fitness training, there is a small donation for this training of £2 so don’t forget your money, there is also likely to be an MTB social ride on Wed meet at 7 p.m. at the Malt Shovel then Thursday there is road training at Hillingdon from 5.45 to 7 p.m. For a number of us this weekend we head off to France but hopefully someone not going will post some rides up.
Looking ahead a few people are thinking of the following events July 8th, Bridport Dagger-Road Sportive or the Beeston Road sportive then on the 15th July is the Scott Marathon in Minehead if interested why not post up on the club website.
