Westmorland Tankard Road Race

It has come to our attention that Lakes Road Club rider Joe Richards came an excellent 7th place in the Westmorland Tankard RR on the 27th May 2018.

Joe was backed up by Andy Whalley and Kev Chadwick who came in 17th and 19th respectively.

This 45 mile event, promoted by the Kent Valley Road Club is a tough one, being run on the hilly Old Hutton course.

Well done lads – let us know some more details and we’ll get them published!

Allendale Road Race

Kev Chadwick was in action again the following week, along with Brian Pearson, in the Derwentside CC promoted Allendale RR, run over what the race organiser calls a ‘challenging’ course – not sure that’s exactly what Brian called it when he told me about it!

Kev did well coming in 13th place, with Brian finishing in the bunch in what was a really hard race.

Great effort lads.
