It has been a busy season of racing for our men, women and youth racers.
Like most teams we have had a real mixture of highs and challenges during the season, but on reviewing our results we certainly can be proud of our racers and their regional and national perfomances so far.

For every result and placing there have been other races where our riders have just come outside the top 10 with real gutsy performances plus many of our racers have given their all to support their team mates get their great results.
We would like to thank our sponsors for their continued support.

A few members of our team have also raced in the Veterans LVRC league that has a starting age catergory of 40 years plus. This is a very competitive league with experienced ex professionals and elite amatuers competing for regional and national honours. The notable highlights being 3 victories for Phil Giles across the region. His voctories were at Mallory Park, Lime Kiln and Flintham. Phil Giles and Phil Grey Blest have also recorded many top 10 places throughout the season.
2019 sees our teams already racing and the others hard into their training.
