Malta Stage 3

Another great day! A win for Clare Leaver!!

Headwinds on the dual carriageway meant no one was keen to work.  The bunch slowed to alot, but mine and Clare's attempts to split the field were no good.

Midway through race, the pro-riders caught our bunch and it was hang on for dear life! Myself, Clare, Elena and the red leader's jersey hung onto their wheels along with another Wyndymilla rider. Clare managed to stay with the men for the remainder of the race.  Iona and the Wyndymilla rider were the last two to lose contact with the men and had a lead of about one minute over the red leader's jersey at one point. With 1 lap to go, the race leader got dragged back up to us, leaving it a sprint for the line.

 Iona moved up to 2nd on GC and Clare, after her win today, leaps up the GC after a rocky start.  Steph is now 8 minutes ahead of next best Maltese rider, and all of us within the top 10 on GC.

Clare, Steph, Steve, Klaus and Elena (BikeAid) and Iona
So all set for tomorrow's last TT!

Iona, Steph and guest-rider Clare are out in Malta, competing in the Tour ta Malta.

The race has gone well so far with Iona in 3rd place yesterday in the Stage 1 coast-road time trial.

All three riders were in the lead group in today's hilly road-race (Stage 2). Clare got away on the last lap to claim 2nd place.  Iona is now in 3rd place overall with Steph in 7th. Steph leads the way in the Maltese competition and has 4 minutes on the next placed Maltese rider.

All go for tomorrow's 3rd stage on a dual carriageway, with nasty little drags of hills at each end of the course.

Team Launch Part 2

Steph and Adele, who were unable to make the team launch last weekend, dropped into the shop to pick up their kit yesterday.

Steph has been away in Cyprus, racing off-road in the UCI Sunshine Cup. Adele has been racing down in Devon and has already put in some excellent results this season, having finished 4th in all three races.

Team Launch

Great to meet the guys at GB Cycles on Saturday. Big mugs of tea, kit trying-on, team-bonding, photo-shooting and rather a lot of browsing around the shop :-)

We love our new Santini kit from GB Cycles and helmets from Specialized. Very smart. Thank you.

We're looking forward to racing together as a team. Our first race will be the Tour ta Malta at the end of March.
