Welland Valley Cycling Club
20 days till the general election apparently, more important than that it is the next round of the Club Championship on Sunday!
After a couple of early season hilly 'blow away the cobwebs' Round 3 of the season long series will be a testers dream. 10 miles of speed and only having to negociate two flow turns. First rider off at 9am from Kibworth.
Away from club events there is the normal diet of open TT's, NCRA bunch race, Youth Circuit racing at Curborough, National MTB action in Plymouth and if you fancy something that will test your thinking and cycling skills, local MTB club Cats are promoting a Trail Quest on Sunday from Foxton.
Which ever bike choice you make relax, have fun and be careful.
Andy Mackay managed to dodge a crash in the last 500m to finish 19th in a superbly supported event with 95 riders on the start line at tonight's Mallory Park.
As the race took shape the finish was contested in an 80-man bunch sprint.
Fortunately a crash in the last corner which saw 6 riders go down resulted in nothing more than a few grazes, although a fair bit of Carbon Fibre was left on the track.
Well done Andy (sharp elbows) Mackay.
