I am pleased to inform you that our latest kit order has finally arrived.
It has been sorted and I will arrange for it to be ready for collection from Neil at George Hall's Cycles.
Another Rocko/KCC/WVCC Track session next Saturday. 7th May, from 19:00 to 21:00 at Derby Arena.
This time we have a group of young riders from the KCC Cyclones being added to the mix, so there's a great chance for those of you who haven't ridden track before to join a group with plenty of newbies. We will also have our normal experienced group session in parallel.

Time Trial racing catch up....
The weather played a massive part in this weekends 'race against the clock'.
Adrian Killworth contested the VC Long Eaton Hilly 25 mile TT on a rolling course in North West Leicestershire. Adrian recorded 1hr 6 minutes 1sec in his first 25 tt of the season.
Torrential rain and hail caused chaos in the prestigious Dianne Cook Memorial 10 Mile TT at Wolvey.
The event attracts an excellent entry with the women's event taking centre stage after a support event for males.
With over 170 competitors the 'bush' course proves very popular. Chris Parr & Steve Boat battled strong winds & driving hail to record times of 25.05 & 25.27. By the time it was Dave Birch's time to start ice from the hail had formed at the side of the road, and thick mist descended, Dave took a rare but sensible decision not to start.
The women's event due to start after the men's event was delayed by 30mins due to the conditions, then cancelled as the roads were flooded denying both Linda Hubbard & Claire Waterfield the chance to race.
