Odd Down Summer Series  – Round 11

We hosted our final round of the summer series for 2014 yesterday evening at Odd Down. Despite the murky weather there were some competitive races in all categories and it was especially pleasing to get 11 entries for the Women’s race. This was the main race for the evening and it lived up to its billing. 

The group slowly ramped up the pace throughout the 40mins + 3 laps which discouraged any attacks but finally with 2 laps to go 4 riders broke clear and built enough of a lead to settle the podium spots amongst them and avoid being caught by the chasers. 

Provisional result:

1st Megan Chard

2nd Diana Hunter-Johnson

3rd Chanel Mason

4th Harriet Guest

Full results to be posted to British Cycling asap!

It remains for us to thank all the BC Commissaires who have attended the circuit this year, especially Diane and Andy, Wolverest for First Aid cover and Jon Arnold and Mike Young for acting as event organisers for the club, Rich Wood for finish line duties plus all the other marshals.

We hope to bring news of the Winter Series in the next couple of weeks. Time to sit around the table with the other local clubs and set some dates.
