Naseby - Team Race SeriesA super day, a good turnout from the team and supporters from the Bowline Club and made even better by the sunshine and being able to ride on dry roads, after what has seemed like weeks of rain.
Well done to Iona and Steph and thanks to Steve.
Mallory Park - 26th JulyI am loving the sunshine and more importantly dry tarmac!! Summer has arrived and after the last two races at Mallory being in the rain, it was just great that we had dry conditions for the Thursday night race.
There was a breakaway after 3 laps of the 20 lap race. Two riding buddies, Jon West and Leon Wright were also racing and there they were off the front! They stayed away for 2 laps and it was a good effort. Leon went on the win the race, with a strong sprint. I think I should take a lead out of his training book...or just stay on his wheel!!
With half a lap to go the bunch was getting twitchy, everyone looking for the break and to get a good position. I followed a group on the outside, only to end up on the edge of the track on the edgings. Another rider came back to the group after some ‘off road’ on the grass. Still it was an exciting and adventurous finish, just a shame it's the last Thursday night circuit race of the season...We are all raring to go!
