Ride & Event Updates

SRAM Notts & Derby Cyclo-Cross League (NDCXL)

Round 6 of the SRAM NDCXL took place at Alfreton Park last Saturday; and was hosted by Belper Bicycle Club.

In the Youth category; Jonah Drake put in another strong performance around the demanding circuit to claim 14th in his category.

In the Vets category, the usual suspects Rob Carr and Ian Drake continued their streak of good performances with 32nd and 30th overall respectively.

Finally; Lewis Tarnai-Wilson put in a strong ride in the Senior category and looked set to take 7th overall; however a bad tumble on the last lap in a wooded section of the course saw him drop down the leader board to 18th overall.

Club Rides

An A/B/C mixed group set off from the Badger Box to Lowdham on Sunday morning where they further split into two groups. Phil and Sam completed a very grueling; yet enjoyable circuit around the Vale of Belvoir; featuring two café stops at Bottesford and Harby. The others completed the usual Southall loop to be home in time for lunch.

AGM Notes

The club’s AGM took place this Monday; and there are a number of exciting announcements coming out of what was a very productive meeting. Expect an special update in the coming weeks about the AGM and what you need to know.

This week’s single ride honours go to Phil “Two Cafes” Heath after the 80 mile circuit of Belviour. In second place is Roger Gore with 57.1 miles.
