As you’ll have probably noticed David Millar has been selected for the Olympic squad. David rode for the Wycombe when he first started racing seriously in the UK, and is a life member of High Wycombe CC.

High Wycombe Cycling Club has always had a broad reach covering a myriad of different cycling activities ranging from casual cycling at all times of the week, weekend club runs with the occasional café stop, competitive time trials, road racing, mountain biking, track cycling, the crazy Audax riders covering 1200km in one-go, not to mention professional cyclists like David Millar!

Michelle was doing really well at 50 miles but unfortunately didn’t finish. The cause of her DNF is unknown at the time of going to press.

Adam was seeded one behind Nik Bowdler, twice BBAR champion in recent years and somewhat of a 100 specialist. Despite it being only Adam’s 3rd 100, and despite the fact he had no support and was carrying an extra 3KGs on board in bottles and cages versus his rival, with the added hindrance of additional drag, he went into the race entertaining thoughts of beating Mr Bowdler Continue reading Weekly Race Roundup Week Ending 29 May 2011
