Tracy Husband and Kerry Brown took on the very challenging Tour of Yorkshire sportive and passed with flying colours, both completing the course that measured out at 64miles with 7500ft of climbing!! Very impressive effort ladies, in what has become an annual pilgrimage for both of them!!
Rob Speers, who is one of our very best cyclists, successfully completed the brutal Mallorca 312km in very impressive fashion. Rob completed the 193.7 mile course with 16,700ft of climbing in a jaw dropping 17.8mph average speed. Many congratulations Rob, but can you share the power around please!!
Congratulations to members Paul Dennison and Jordan Black who both put in fine efforts in the Velo UK Ixworth Cycle races over the bank holiday weekend. This was Jordan’s first road race and he performed with great credit and enjoyed the experience. Jordan has been putting together some excellent TT times this year and we’ll all be following his progress throughout . This is Paul’s first full year of racing and he has put together a good calendar of events he will be competing in over the coming months. The trouble for the rest of us who follow Paul on the club rides is he keeps getting faster!!!
Our first block of Junior Cycling with British Cycling coach Nick High has just been completed and had been a big success. Over the last ten weeks the juniors have displayed an impressive cycling skill set and all have improved greatly over this time. We are now in the process of putting together the next block of coaching and will keep the website updated with full details when they become available.
Message from our British Cycling Coach Nick High “I just wanted to say a big “Thank you” to NC&TC for having me over the last 10 weeks. It really was an honour and pleasure to work with the juniors and without the club (and particularly Ken, Robin and Richard) this wouldn’t have happened. 🚴=😃”
