The 2013 season continues to gather pace, with Velo Club memebers riding in local Crits, Road, time Trials, Summer Cross, Track and many other disciplines!
We’re still waiting for that elusive first win of the season, but new member Billy Osmond is going well on the road with recent 3rd and 4th places at Castle Combe evening series. We’ve had a consistant showing of riders at this weekly event along with the Ilton series as well – so well done all, improving all the time! Dave Rutty grabbed a 3rd spot at the Kalas supporting crit on the 26th May also. Another good ride worth mentioning was that of Matt Dunsbier, who travelled up to Carlisle earlier in the month for a 3/4 2-day stage race. Consistent placings of 2nd in the TT and third in the last road stage gave Matt a fine 6th overall in the final classification!
Ian Dunn and Lee Francis are turning out to be a force in the local evening TT series, regularly among the top placings. This looks very promising for our own series which starts on the 4th June.
There’s also the Summer Cross series which has just started with Gavin Thomas and Jon Hirons regular competitors. Gavin recently finishing a great 3rd at one of the Cheltenham rounds!
