Race Team Get First Win

Last weekend Adam managed to do a fantastic job of winning the E123 race at the Velopark. It was a strong solo effort as Mitchy was off to Manchester to (sadly not) ride in the National Track Championships. Adam got himself into an early three-man break and launched a solo attack with thirty minutes still [...]

The Importance of Having an Aim

One of my main targets for 2016 was to gain selection and compete at the European police championships – much to my disappointment the event has been cancelled.

The hard [...]
