National Champs Podium for Kev Chadwick!

Sunday 19th May saw the running of the TLI Cycling National Closed Circuit Championships, held once again at the fantastic Oulton Park motor racing circuit in Cheshire.

As some of you know, the TLI operates on an age related basis and there was a separate race for each age category.

A number of Lakes Road Club riders took part, with Kev Chadwick continuing his great form and getting a bloody brilliant 3rd place and podium spot in the ‘C’ category race.  Kev and two other riders made a break for it and held off the chasing bunch for a 3 up sprint for the national title.  the final result was as follows:

1st  John Fiddies  Team Lusso

2nd  Andy Bennett  Omnipex Bioracer Racing Team

3rd  Kevin Chadwick  Lakes Road Club

4th  Paul Thursfield  Graham Weigh Racing

Well done Kev, great result.

Jon Brown also jumped straight in at the deep end, entering his first race – the National Championships!  Great effort JB!  He wasn’t up for the win in the end but got round and finished the race – hats off, Jon great effort.

We also believe that Andy Whalley and John McMinn represented the Lakes RC in this event although we’ve no details – more will be posted as we get it.

Well done lads!
