    Another good day for the WVCC junior pairing of Jacob Booth & James Risk racing in the senior 3/4 Cat CDNW league on a very undulating course across near Kendal.

    A tough course again saw James & Jacob mixing it at the front of the bunch for the whole race. seven times up the 300ft climb to the finish line was going to be difficult, but this didn’t stop James having a go at a break on lap 3, followed by Jacob staying away for a whole lap with 1 to go. By the last lap the bunch had been whittled down to about 20 riders (out of 60) and after 57 miles and over 5000ft climbing in total, and most of the bunch screaming due to major leg cramps, James came over the line in 3rd overall with Jacob close behind in 5th! 😮

    Well done to both riders for a really gutsy race, and congratulations to Jacob for making it to 2nd Cat with todays points. 😀 I’m sure it will not be long before James makes it also based on the last 2 weeks performances.

    It was really nice to see 2 WVCC riders side by side in the bunch today and getting really positive comments about their ability & form from the rest of the bunch. Keep up the good work! 🙂
