Kicking on from 2012, this season looks to be one of the best in recent times for the club. We’ve had a great winter with regular weekly training rides, a trip to Mallorca and many new members.
It’s really encouraging to see so many riders keen to race and within the first month of the season we’ve gained our first win of the season! Noel Waldron won the 4th category race at the Ludgershall circuit in atrocious conditions on the 23rd March. Moving him straight up to 3rd category status. He was abley supported by Greg Lancaster (in 4th) to back up his previous weeks result of 2nd! With Kieran Murphy and Helen Gardiner also racing. Both Kieran and Kieran Blair have raced down on the Portsmouth ‘D’ circuit with top 10 results.
Good Friday saw a number of riders at Castle Combe – many their first race and all riding really well.
Ian Dunn flew the flag on the time trial front with an excellent 7th at the season opener – Severn RC 25m TT.
