RATAE RC 10
The first of the popular Gilmorton 10’s run by Ratae RC was held on Saturday, with 3 Welland Valley CC riders taking part.
A superb ride from juvenile Kian Traynor, backing up a strong cyclocross season, resulted in a strong 26:35 on a rolling course.
Matt Plews was the fastest WVCC rider, with 24:27, enough for 8th, and Charlie Simpson with 30:34.
Mark Bell Memorial 20 Mile TT, Islip
Mark Bell was a member of the Kettering C.C. and an up and coming racing man. He died tragically whilst competing in a time-trial in 1994.
Held in cold and very wet conditions on the rolling NC1A course, WVCC riders put in some strong performances, with Linda Hubbard being fastest lady with 55:27.
Jon Durnin stopped the clock with 51:33, and Adrian Reed 52:49.
Thanks to our friends Ratae RC and Kettering CC for organising two cracking events.
