Hi all,

We were impressed with the braveheart's that turned up for this Sunday's winter round, only to be disappointed that Saturday night's downpour left the track submerged in a few places and racing couldn't take place. Next Sunday (1st feb) will hold round 4 of the Alloms sponsored race series with round 5 the following week as scheduled.
We aim to have the troubled areas sorted by late spring with a (higher track and some extra drainage) so that another summer of rain won't stop the action to stop fun like this going down, if you are going to lose a glove on the track - I could think of better places to lose it. Top effort from this rider and I am sure his mum gave him a reward once he was back on dry land.

Some great efforts from the spectacle race provided from new cruiser rider Paul Crook, Juan & Steve Kelly - wasn't sure whether they were pedalling or paddling in some parts - Paul got the win by an 'armband'. A lot of kids were unfazed by the water with Matty mayhem - getting into hot water with his Dad, Wozza going for one last ride - water up to his knees, Charlie - playing water polo/football with Tyler & Liam Crook, Holly on a debut spill into a trough of water, and the rest of the brave riders having a great splash - hope you all have WD40 to hand on those cranks etc

For those who travelled to the Brits - the grant application should be getting signed off by the Cycling association and once we get the grant I should be able to distribute. The dates for the summer series have been provisionally agreed and should be up on here within the next couple of weeks so keep checking back.
Top Marks to the Kissack crew this week with their brand spanking new 'Felt' racers - top gear and it was a pity that they didn't get to race on them - a lot lighter that their previous bikes so expect improved rides from these kids. If you are after a new race bike locally, Outdoors in Ramsey stocks DK and can get hold of any of the their full range and Bikestyle are the official Haro and Felt stockists.
Keep checking back
