FNSS Catch-Up

Round 5 hosted by WVCC

WVCC hosted round 5 of the Friday Night Summer Series at Kilworth Springs Golf Course last Friday.

We did our best to make the course interesting, running it in the opposite direction to normal giving a draggy climb from the bottom of the golf course and using the driving range banks to give some sweeping off-camber climbs and descents and we had some good feedback from the riders.

The event was a great success thanks to all the help in organising, course setting, signing on, marshalling, course dismantling and just general support by club members and friends. It was also good to see a fair smattering of yellow amongst the 114 riders that raced.

Many thanks to Kilworth Springs Golf Course for allowing us to use the venue.
