Well another week rolls by and what brilliant weather it has been for cycling, hope no one is complaining as I know I would prefer the heat to the cold and rain.
So what can we report on this week, Tuesday once again it was nice to see a team from the club taking part at the West Thames races at Hillingdon, once again Jack Shuttleworth being the best placed rider in 11th place. Wednesday we had the club KT10 an event we have run since the inception of the club, I have been looking through my old records to see if I could find out what the event record is but have been unsuccessful but the belief is that Roger Fowkes the winner has smashed it now and his winning ride of 22.32 will take some beating. A big thanks to all those that supported this fun event. Thursday we had the road training, Saturday some of the keener ones took a look at the Hadleigh Farm Olympic course in preparation for the Nationals in 2 weeks time. Sunday we had a good road ride as well as others doing a social MTB ride so as always lots going on.
Looking ahead to this week, once again racing at Hillingdon Tuesday, Wed it should be the MTB training but as most of you know this will clash with the football, so those keen it is a 6 pm start at Black Park, however I will be shooting away early to catch the football. Thursday road training from 6 p.m. onwards at the Hillingdon cct.
Saturday there will be a gentle social MTB ride from the Malt Shovel meeting at 9.30 a.m. Sunday a road ride from the same place meeting at 9 a.m.
Don’t forget if you want any new club kit an order is open on the following link https://eucustom.champ-sys.com/teamstore/?WestDraytonMBCJuly18
For those who have been racing regularly and by regularly I mean at least once a fortnight, the club will subsidise your purchase by £20, feel free to ask if this includes you!
