Rutland Riders at it again.

30 Mar
March 30, 2010

Last weekend things turned to the road racing scene with the first in the series of Saturday afternoon road races around Carburton Lakes. The day was fine but very windy when the riders set off for the 35 mile race with the scatch group having a 10 min handicapp to make up, things were quick with Marc Mallender, Simon Keeton, James Baillie(Sheffield Sports) and Sean Smith( Halifax Whrs) being the main riders driving the scatch group along. On the last of 5 laps James Baillie attacked up the climb out of Cuckney and was joined by Simon Keeton. Marc Mallender jumped across to the pair alone and pushed hard over the top of the climb to force the split. The last rider to make the split was Sean Smith. The four pushed on, caught and ripped through the first group leaving only them four to contest the final sprint. Sean Smith got the jump from Marc who lead out but faded a little in the sprint to finish 4th Simon grabbed second with James a creditable 3rd for a 16 year old.

The Slow Cake Begins

January 27, 2010

Do you know riders who would like to come out on the teacake but are a bit put off by the pace? We’re thinking new to the sport riders, ladies and younger riders. Anyone really who would like to come out cycling but has been put off by the pace of the teacake. If you know any riders that would fit the bill then invite them along on the all new Slowcake. A ride just like the teacake and going to the same cafe but at a steadier pace…No one will be left behind and the emphasis will be on encouraging new members to the sport and club. Myself and Danny have agreed to lead the ride once a month but if other members would be willing to lead the ride let us know via the website. Let’s do our bit for Dave Brailsfords quest to get one million new riders out on the bike. Who knows the next Mark Cavendish could well be out there…and we want them in the Rutland!

 First one is Sat 6th Feb 9.15am depart Bents Road and Eccelsall Road Junction meet. None club members welcome.
