Training - Tuesday 17 April

posted 19 Apr 2012, 13:48 by Mike Smith
The first Training session of the year took place on a blustery & showery Ilton Circuit

Shortly before the start of the training session, a massive rain shower gave the circuit a good soaking, however with Anna & Gary at the helm all riders were signed in by 7pm.  After the warm up lap the 50 + seniors were duly split into 2 groups,  the pace in the 1st group gradually increased - pushed on by Ash Martin & Jack Plummer such that they were clear of the chasing group by about the 3rd lap.  By this time  the heavens had opened again and gave the riders a good soaking as they headed down the back straight on the far side of the airfield.  By the time the session finished shortly after 8pm the riders were wet, cold and miserable.  Lets hope for better weather next week.
