Weekly update 30th June

Five Velos headed to the Thanet Way A299 for the VTTA 10.

The wind was problematic on the return leg making it a real fight to the finish.

A impressive ride from Lee Kingston saw him cross the chequered flag in 22min 15 secs. Rob Kennison was next home for the team in 24mins 16 secs.

The battle for third club mate back was between David Mackey and Sally Smith with David pipping Sally riding 26.12 to her 26.44.

Michael Stanley rode a PB completing the course in 27.14.

On Tuesday Rich Stokoe raced the North Weald Crits. It was warm but windy and tonight Rich started in the intermediate group.

After a steady opening lap Rich found himself in a few breaks but nothing was sticking. He took refuge in the bunch to recover.

On the penultimate lap Rich made a break for it and managed to get daylight on the group before being reeled in. He rolled in with the main group.

On Thursday he headed to the LVRC at Dunton another windy night which kept the bunch together. There were a few attempts to get away early on with the eventual winner making a successful break on his own at about 30 mins to ride in for the win.

On the final lap Rich rode aggressively to move up the bunch and was rewarded with a top 20 finish.

Matt Nunn was in action today; swimming, biking and running the Olympic distance triathlon at Leeds Castle.

He swam like a fish, rode like the devil and ran like the wind to complete in 2hrs 39mins 5 secs. A very impressive result.

In other news Nathan Delaney was smashing it round cyclopark on Thursday at the summer series crit race. He took 6th place picking up more BC points. His 2nd cat may be a possibility this season if these fantastic results continue!
