Results

Tour Series
Round 2, Galashiels
Round 2 of the Tour Series in Galashiels last night. A short, fast and tricky circuit produced some furious racing. Strong rides all around again last night, but a couple of mechanicals put paid to the challenges of Sophie L (when will she get a break!?) and Kate. Sophie E lead the charge making a select front group, but just not quite having the legs in the final sprint and finishing 13th. Great to race in front of a very enthusiastic Galashiels crowd. On to Sunderland next week after the Rapha Lincoln Grand prix on Sunday.

Tour Series
Round 1 Guisborough
A fast and furious start to the Tour Series in Guisborough last night. Strong riding all around, but luck was certainly not on our side as both Sophie L and Beth were involved in incidents which took them out of the lead group in which we had four riders at the time. Kate finished a very creditable 11th in what was her first crit at this level, followed by Sophie E in 17th. A very promising start, on to home turf in Galashiels next.
