    Great to see so many Weaver Valley representing tonight at Withington. 8 riders competing including Jules, Kris, Kev, Jon C, Kempy, Andy Newby, El and Carol in her first race!!!

    That was such good fun – but such hard work! Will post a blog tomorrow when I get time, it’s too late now and I need my beauty sleep. But Alan was amazing in our race, he just kept trying to get away (at which point we all had to accelerate like crazy to stay with the chasing bunch) and he finally made it, with a really well deserved win.
    Well done Kev for your second place, missing first place by half a wheel apparently…and well done Carol, for your first race, you looked like you’d been riding in those wheels all your life!! I’m very proud of us Weaver Valley girls, the only two girls in there amongst all that testosterone, and we held our own!!

    Well done Carol. We knew you’d do well. Can we expect a little more aggression next time out?

    Fantastic blog Eleanor as always! I can assure you I did work very hard, my legs this morning felt very heavy! Not quite sure what I was smiling at! Dan says next time he’ll paint the road at yellow broom corner yellow and blue and will be camping out from sunday night if anyone wants to come down for a few beers!!! A big well done to you too!!

    Great blog El as always.

    Well done to all that raced on Tuesday. It was a shock to my system. And getting dropped on the first lap didn’t help!! All those miles over the winter helped me get back on! Roll on next week 😀
