2019 Racing Season Kicks Off!

Lakes RC Members Brian Pearson, Kevin Chadwick, Andy Whalley and Joe Richards recently rode in the Carlisle Cycling Association 3 Stage Race on the 30th March 2019.

Brian writes:

“Stage 1 was a TTT over 1 Lap of the Castle Carrock course which we finished 8th team out of 15 so not to bad for a bunch of oldies.

Stage 2 was a 50 mile RR over the same course where Andy finished 7th Kev and Joe finishing in the bunch and I got bailed out half way but got a finish at 1 lap down. The winner was an ex pro called Peter Hawkins who got away with 2 others one of them being young George Ball from Ulverston who got second place.

Stage 3 was a 1hr + 5 lap crit on the new Harroby track at Carlisle. It was the usual flat out sufferfest with Andy and Joe finishing well up in the bunch with  me towards the back and poor old Kev blowing his doors finishing at 1 lap down.

All in all a great but very tiring day.”

Well done lads, great rides all round!  Overall results on GC were, Andy in 7th, Joe in 23rd, Kev 41st and Brian 42nd.
