Castle Carrock Road Race- 20th March
Andy, Kieron, Daz and me got broken in for the season at the 2,3,4 cat at Brampton. Hard work to make anything happen on a flat course. A break of 3 somehow managed to keep away even though they were brought back to within 30m with 8 miles to go. We were left to fight for scraps in the bunch sprint. The boys did some great work on the last lap to keep me out of the wind and I managed second in the bunch sprint for 5th. Top effort fellas.
Lancaster Crit Series- March
Lancaster put on a series of 4 crit races early in the season to get the legs going. It has been a good start for LRC with points for Kev Chadwick in the 3/4’s finishing 7th in his first race and Graham Carrick in the 4’s with a 10th place in his first race. Hopefully more to come.
Week 3 saw three LRC riders compete. Andy and Chris Gunson came down alongside myself. We all managed to score points in the 4th cat race with Andy 4th, me 6th and Chris 7th.
In the following 3/4 cat race Andy managed 9th place we other local rider Tom Martin taking second. Chapeau!!
Week 4 sawÃ‚Â 4 LRC lads down at Salt ayre. Andy & Chris Gunson raced both the 4ths & the 3/4, Dave Huck raced in the 3/4s and Kev raced the 3/4s & E/1/2’s. Andy came 3rd in 4th cat. Kev came first in the 3/4s and 8th in the E/1/2’s.
