Sarah leads the Sportive Trophy

Sarah Davies took over the lead this weekend in our Sportive Trophy Competition when she completed 65miles in the Evans Chiltern Sportive on a wet, windy and cold day.  She now has a total of 240 miles leading Robin Smith on 210 miles. Well done Sarah. It's excellent to see our ladies to the fore in 2 of our season long competitions.

Our second open time trial of the season, the Fifield 15, takes place on 23 May, which is just over two weeks from today. Since this is an open time trial entries must be on a CTT entry form accompanied by a cheque for £7.50 made out to Maidenhead & District CC.

Sunday WLCA '25' Gurpal snatches 9th in an open event!

This mornings WLCA '25'  due to adverse weather, in the interest of rider safety, was run as a '10' using course HCC180.

On a terrible morning Simon Greenland and Gurpal Panesar  both rode  in the  revamped WLCA '10' near Great Missenden. They both prospered from the  60% of the riders  who didn't start  with Simon finishing 4th in 25:14 and Gurpal snatching 9th in 32:36. 

Both of our riders deserve special commendation for riding this event when so many others were DNS.
