uciwclondon14 (1)In a year of many firsts we made our first visit to the Lee Valley veldrome for the first major meeting since the London 2012 Olympic Games. The 6,000 strong crowd got what they wanted as Laura Trott rode a superb 25km race in the final discipline of the women’s omnium to net her 2nd gold of the meeting. The other two Brits involved in the proceedings on Sunday night did not medal. Jess Varnish only qualified for the kierin final after a fellow competitor was excluded from her semi-final and Jon Dibben was down in 5th after 5 events of the omnium, so it was a big ask. Still it was a great night and experience. Read More »

rockingham14 (8)Another year almost chalked off as our end of season foray to Rockingham saw a capacity field for the first time in 5 years. There was quality too with the top 4 all recent winners on circuit based rallies. In the end it was David Tinn & Marc Fowler (Satria Neo) who won by over two and a half minutes. They set a total of 7 fastest or joint fastest stage times across the 12 stages and were never out of the top 5 stage times for the entire rally. Josh Payton & Marcus Mizen (Escort MkII) were best of the rest overnight but retired early on day 2, after dropping to a minute behind Tinn. Read More »

SONY DSCA hard fought battle, in challenging conditions, saw Matt Edwards & Paul Morris (Escort MkII) go head to head with Matthew Robinson & Sam Collis (Escort MkII) for an event long battle which captivated all who witnessed it. Both went well in the opening stages of Friday night and it was Edwards who held a 58 second lead over Robinson. Catching slower crews had been an issue and probably hampered Robinson by half a minute more than Edwards, but both were set up for 2 further days of battle, including an off, mechanical issues, an epic comeback and a post event exclusion for one of the crews.
