Hopefully everyone had a good weekend of riding making use of the extra day off for most, for some from the club it was the Scott Mountain Marathon at Landovery, unfortunately the weather Gods were not kind for event day on Sunday with rain for the morning making conditions a bit on the grim side but it was nice to see a good turnout form the club.
The next round is at Minehead which has some great riding so why not put the date, the 30th June in your diary and come along for the weekend.
Over last week there was a club road ride on Sundayas well as the normal MTB/CX training and an evening social ride so lots going on.
Racing wise Jack Shuttleworth has been lacking a few team mates down at the Hillingdon circuit recently but this has not hampered him too much with another top 10 result this week, hopefully after this weeks cub road trip he will be joined by a few from the club. On the TT front Clive Evans confirmed his current good form with a second win of the season in the Bath RC Wednesday night TT at Black Park, this combined with his recent win at the Battle of the Bowl making it 3wins in May earns him the club racer of the month award and a prize from the clubs emporium.
Hopefully everyone who wanted club clothing got their order in, we have managed to keep the order open until Friday of this week for the late comers

Riding wise this week, due to other commitments I will not be running the MTB training however there is a social MTB ride from club sponsors shop the Concept Store in Ruislip, meet at the back of the shop at 6.30. Don’t forget your beer tokens for the post ride drink. Then for 21 of the club it is the eagerly anticipated French Road trip at the weekend which will see us away for a week taking on the biggest climbs the French Alps can throw at us. Hopefully someone who is staying at home will post up a local ride for the weekend and for those who are racing at the Southern XC race at Basingstoke good luck, one club rider is looking for a lift from West Drayton way if anyone can assist get in touch.
There has been talk of doing a club ride in July along the South Downs Way completing it in a day this will be fairly tough as it is 100 miles, if dry the route is suitable for either cx/gravel/MTB bikes there is a forum thread on the club website so if keen post up.
