Scorchio racing at Rockingham

The racing action at this evenings club road races matched the scorching weather. 
With a nagging headwind on sections of the Rockingham Speedway circuit it still didn't deter some aggressive racing with riders jumping away in a bid to score maximum points in the chase to be crowned King or Queen of Rockingham. 

In the 9 lap race Fraser Ayears got away in a group of 4 with Stuart Dawkins, Mark Chapman and Jon Durnin.

They worked well together until the final lap, after which Fraser and Jon eased open a small gap. Going into the final hairpin Jon kicked hard out of the corner to take the B group race, as Fraser lunged for the line he slipped to fourth after a fantastic brave effort.
In the A race Jonny Unwin made the most of knowing Rockingham inside out to take the victory after 12 laps from Rob Moore.

Millie van Nierop won the six lap race from Claire Moore.

After two rounds Unwin is top of the leader board with Millie leading the Under 18's.

Welland Valley 'on tour'

Ed and Simon cycled up Mont Ventoux. The ascent was the hardest thing Ed's done but he did say the descent was the most fun he's ever had on a bike!

Time to plan for darker nights

As the nights start to draw in and we enter the final few weeks of the tt & road season it would be timely to let you know the MID-WEEK activities Welland Valley CC will be delivering.

This Wednesday sees the start of 17 weeks of mid-week off-road coaching - up until Christmas. 
Come and train with current champions and champions of the future developing cornering skills, gear selection, starts, balance and agility. You don't have to be a cross/mtb racer to benefit from 60 minutes of fun on off- road bikes.
