Kings Cliffe Flyers Go-Ride Racing Series – Round 1
A great turnout for the first bitterly cold & wet round of the 2013 series. Multiple scratch races, an Elimination race, time trials & a handicap race ensured they were kept warm & busy. The Flyers Fledglings (under 8s) showed everyone exactly what great racing is about & demanded ‘proper length’ races & lots of them too.
In the older categories Jerry Norman won the overall competition, 2nd-Ben Lewis, 3rd Harry Tilley. Arthur Brown, Oliver Tilley & Oliver Stegeman were the younger winners.
Open Races George Baker has been performing consistently on the road so far this season competing a couple of times at the new Elveden circuit in Suffolk & in the Lee Valley YCC Youth Series. For info on the next Elveden races including seniors & women see http://elvedencycleraces.com/
Alconbury Airfield – Tuesday night was race night for the riders who had taken part in the closed road & time trial coaching sessions during the last previous few weeks. In an omnium format the riders completed a 15 mins circuit race, time trial & handicap circuit race. Jerry Norman was the only Flyer represented & his efforts were rewarded with a medal & SKY Pro cycling goodies.
Fenland Grass Track A contingent of more experienced riders from Spalding CC were at this Go-Ride Racing event in Bretton, Peterborough last Friday & once again Jerry was the only representative from the Flyers. Despite the freezing cold & drizzle everyone stayed upright as they whizzed around the oval grass track.
