Welland Valley Cycling Club
Rockingham Circuit was the latest venue for round 8 of the Club Championship.
The Club Championship requires club members to be able to master a variety of distance's, hilly circuits or the lung bursting hill climb.
Round 8 was the fastest rider to cover 10 miles on a traffic free circuit, after a few days of rain it was a bonus the race was held in dry but blustery conditions.
Once again James Garratt proved to be the fastest individual on the night recording 21:08, going 27 seconds faster than the previous week. James Moore won the battle for second (22:13) ahead of the ever improving junior rider Myles Foskett (22:27).
Fastest female was Amy Garner.
James Garratt is in a different league in club events, the youngster though is not afraid to test himself against the best in the Country as this coming Sunday he will take to the start line in the National Junior 25 in Buckinghamshire.
Matt Garner was the fastest rider to cover 5 miles stopping the clock in 12 minutes 29 seconds ahead of Kian Traynor 13:27 and Rudy Killworth 13:55.
All of the 5 milers produced impressive times and delivered measured efforts.
Well done all.
Holly Clark flew round the one mile course. With her big smile the young lady wasted no time pedalling her cycle round the course to record the fastest time of 6 minutes 46 seconds. Big 'high fives' to Daniel, Andrew and Billy for showing great determination and fantastic leg speed as they all recorded times.
The club championship hot's up with Round 8 - 10 mile TT.
Non championship events include - 'Come and try it', 5 mile TT
& 1 mile TT.
Tuesday 28th July, Rockingham Raceway @ 18:45pm.
Remember to count your laps down!
