|As a supporting race to the main 2 Days of Bedford – come and make a full day out at the Milbrook circuit.
There’s two stages of the 2 days of Bedford with the Mens road race sandwiched in the middle.
Come and see the top HWCC racers in action.
With this week being the last week of the current series, and our riders chasing points, the pressure was on to consolidate results and press on towards the “Holy Grail” of Cat 3 racing. A plan was made to break with two laps to go as a group and take turns before releasing Creighton for a sprint. Following last week’s 8th place he needed 4 points therefore 6th or higher. In the men’s race Andy, Chris, Gary, Stuart, Cipo and Creighton and despite there being no women’s only race Charlotte and Jane returned to the fray.
This was the second race of the West Drayton Mountain Bike Club promoted three race series. Paul “Cipo” Morrissey, Andy Wright, Chris Hacking and Creighton Varney were entered in the Cat 4 men’s race with Charlotte Cockle, Becky Stanley and circuit racing debutants Juliet Milward and Jane Hunt entered in the E/1/2/3/4 women’s race. All the riders arrived at Hillingdon in good spirits, with both Juliet and Jane feeling some entirely understandable pre-race nerves.
Over the last weekend a few of the more hardy High Wycombe Cycling Club riders were out and about. On Sunday,however, most stayed indoors and practiced on their turbos. The weather was truly awful. Hopefully this is the end of winter, even though spring doesn’t officially start for another two weeks!
