The two day JUNIOR TOUR OF THE MENDIPS this weekend saw Kieran Savage climbing from 32nd on Stage 1 to 9th on Stage 2 and finishing in 9th overall! Stage 1 consisted of a 64 mile race starting at Churchill in North Somerset to include a long climb at Burrington Combe. Stage 2 the following day, Sunday 12 April, was a 50m race and saw riders take in 3 large climbs in particularly breezy conditions over the top of the hills. Fantastic result Kieran!
A little further north into Leicestershire for the NO FRILLS DUATHLON which took place at Market Bosworth. Matt Hallam popped a podium with a silver over the 5k-21k-5k course, running more than impressively with a 14:10 on the first run and 14:28 on the second as well as having the second fastest bike time of the day (35:58). #speedy
In other news, riders from Jackpot took a battering in high winds at the Skylark Sportive in some of the hilliest parts of Yorkshire resulting in two mechanicals for Claire Pickersgill with a snapped chain a few miles in and a broken derailleur half way around the long course and a lift back to the start for pie and peas. PWs for all up Cragg Vale yesterday.
