Good Friday was a great day for the club as we had riders competing in a few events locally
it all kicked off with the Bournemouth Arrow Good Friday 10,on the course down in sopley won by 1 Gary Chambers in a time of 20:34 Craig wallington decided to ride his road bike furnished with disk wheel and came and in his own words didn’t think he put in a good performance on the day and Came 25th with a time of 22:58 25 and has decided to have a bit of a rest and get back racing later in june (unless he can be convinced other wise ) also riding was 29 Richard Hamilton with a great time of 23:03 29 which to be honest is some good times for that course so well done guys great effort
now the the road Racing We had three riders racing Callum, Jason and Rhys are raced in the castle Combe Easter classic below is report from callum
The race started very fast, we all started at the back and had to sprint to hold on to the group. After 2 laps it had calmed down and i was fighting for position at the front and Rhys and Jason we comfortable in the group. After about 20mins Jason pulled out as he was struggling to catch up with the group after the chicane’s, but he put in a great effort for his first race.
With 2 laps to go i was leading peloton and Rhys was in the pack.
On the last lap i found myself in a good position and in the home straight fighting the strong head wind i managed to hold onto and sprint to finish 3rd, and Rhys finished comfortably in the group putting in a great effort.
from all the photos on Facebook looks like it was a large bunch
