The “July Series” – a great success

25 07 2012

It doesn’t seem like five minutes ago that we were appealing for marshals and helpers as we prepared for the July Series of four TLI road races.  Well, those four Tuesdays have come and gone and it is with  pride and pleasure that we can report on the huge success that the evenyts have been.  Good fields of riders have taken to the 2 lap, 30 mile races with fast times, clear winners in some and  bunch sprints in others.  The series has also been a great opportunity for some of our members to try out racing for the first time and it seems the bug has definitely bitten!  As with all events of this type they cannot go ahead without suitable planning and a great deal of willing helpers.  Thanks must go to race organser Mike Wilson, all those who have done their turn at marshaling (especially those who turned out and were not actually racing), the lead car drivers, the medical support teams, the judges on the finish line, the photographer, the Audlem Guides (teas and refreshments) and of course  the riders for entering.   We have become accustomed to receiving many positive comments about our organisation of road races and these events proved to be no different.   Well done and again a huge thank you to everyone who helped out in any way shape or form.   For more information about racing and the TLI click here to visit their website
