Another active week or so for the Performance Academy with racers competing in TT’s, crits and road races.
Firstly if you want to get involved with racing click here for details of our Berkhamsted Castle Revolutions Festival on Sunday 24th June 2018. It’s going to be a fantastic day of racing from youth, novice through to full-on category races for men and women. There will be lots for the family to do including closed road riding for everyone and entertainment in the castle grounds.
Now for the Academy news…
David, James and Julian were in action at the Antelope 3-up 50km team time trial in Chalgrove, Oxfordshire. They finished in 1hr 27min 42secs averaging over 21 mph.
Matt competed in the Thames Velo road race and finished 11th averaging over 26mph for the 50 mile race. He felt that he could have placed higher but was slightly out of position for the sprint.
Matt was also at Hillingdon crit finishing 8th in the cat 3 race, unfortunately again boxed in for the sprint.
He competed in the Hemel Hempstead CC weekly 10 mile Time Trial on the 3rd and 10th of May. He won the former on a road bike and finished 3rd in the latter!
Matt is going very well and has started a TT bike build. The Academy cant wait 🙂
Paul and Trevor also raced in the HHCC 10 TT on 10th May and both thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Setting a bench mark to improve on over the summer.
Richard raced at Hillingdon in the cat 4 race finishing in provisional 15th place. Learning all the time and improving race-on-race.
James raced the London Phoenix 9 mile TT finishing in 11th place with a time of 22min 42secs averaging over 24mph. James was 1st on a road bike beating lots of full-on TT rigs!
