James Taylor competed in the Nick Clark and Ginger Smallwood Road Race on the 11th June. Part of the Central Road Race series that will see BCC host our own round on Sunday 6th August.
Some words from James…
“Was going well, stayed with the bunch the whole race, even attacked a couple of times on the last lap but came to nothing. Was well placed in the bunch for the sprint, then punctured with 100 metres to go and had to do a Chris Froome up the hill”
Graham Earl completed a sterling penny farthing race in the Rapha London Nocturne finishing in 7th place despite being hampered with seized steering on the last lap.
BCC had two men’s teams competing in the Bicester Millennium Cycle Club Silverstone Grand Prix circuit 9-up Team Time Trial.
The two Men’s teams (BCC1 and BCC2) were ranked 16th and 23rd overall with times of 24:55 and 26:16 respectively. This is impressive considering the average age of our riders.
The BCC women’s team are preparing for the forthcoming 4-up TT event.
