Long Distance Champion Victor Chetta

The 24hour Fellowship have just collated their 2016 Best All Rounder results and it comes as no surprise to us that our own Victor Chetta comes out top of the pile for this long distance award. The average speed is taken over a 100 mile Time Trial and 12 and 24 hour Time Trials and Victor achieved an incredible 23.7mph, that's 2.5mph faster than second place!

Other results were Alex Hart, 3rd in the under 10s with Seb Ball in 11th.

Let's Ride

  Let's Ride is the new name for British Cycling's Ride Social. Sarah Barton kicked off the New Year and the launch of Let's Ride with a ride aimed at new riders and families. There was a great turnout and the group split into two, a family ride and a normal pace ride with both groups meeting up for coffee at Battlefield 1403 Café. Let's Ride leaves the Shrewsbury Sports Village at 9:30 on Sunday mornings. All welcome with the youngest rider this week aged 4 years on a tag-a-long and the youngest solo rider aged 6. The aim is to have two groups each week and all are welcome.

National Cyclo Cross Day 2

Going into the Championships with a target of a top 5, Ewan Grivell - Mellor exceeded his expectations with a fine 4th place just 25 seconds from the podium. A customary slow start put Ewan just out of the top 10 on the first lap but a strong ride took him through the pack to 4th place with 2 laps to go. Disaster was averted when a dropped chain lost him 30 seconds and put him back to 8th place. The course seemed to suit his style though and he remained calm and rode strongly back to 4th where an extra lap could have provided that elusive podium.

National Cyclo Cross Day 1

Following on from the Mids successful promotion in January 2016, the Championships return to Peel Park in Bradford. On day 1 we saw under 14s Ryan and Daphne joined by under 16s Lucy in the youth races. Conditions were very slippery and there were lots of spills to talk about but an amazing experience to build on for next season.
