While some of the team are enjoying a few late season miles in Mallorca there's still a few more races left in the 2018 calendar at home for others.
George Creasey is squeezing in a few more late season TTs on his road bike. It's a been a good two weeks for George where he raced the Primera 10 mile open on the ski slope (P415/10) course, clocking a PB of 22.06 in that race. So close to that 21 minute ride, George was out the following week at the Utag 10 mile open to ride to another PB of 21.56. Great times and improvement from George over the season and great to hit his 21 minute goal on his last race of the season. Looking forward to seeing how much stronger George gets next year!
Tony Revell continued his top form at the Hope Valley mountain bike marathon series in the Peak District. Tony was home in the first bunch of 3 in the night race and was up early the next morning to tackle the full marathon - 43 miles and over 6000 feet of climbing! Having left too much out there in the night race it was a tough one for Tony but still came home in a strong time and a big improvement on his attempt last year.

Julia Hamlyn was out representing team Weber Creative - Bournemouth Cycleworks team at the Pedal Hounds Enduro race. It was a tough, twisty and technical course but Julia left the others for dust to finish on the top spot of the podium in the female 40+ category. Another great performance from one of our female mountain bike riders.

Finally some of our other team members have been mixing it up including Jon Clemas who is preparing for the Bournemouth half marathon and has no problem going sub 20 (19.43) at the Upton Park Run while pushing his son around. Ross Smith, who is preparing for the European cross duathlon championships, has also been clocking the running miles with a 7th place at the Upton Park 3.5 mile run a few weeks back and more recently 5th in the 12.5mile off road race around Corfe, the Beast. Naomi Shinkins left the bike at home as she went to Sweden for the swim run world championships, finishing 17th female team and taking 57mins off the time she did back in 2016.
