Spinning In The Rain

Spinning In The Rain

Congratulations to the brave VCNers who turned out for the first of the Elveden Race Series in the bucketing rain on Saturday morning.

Sadly a big crash in the bunch sprint accounted for some of the club’s best hopes, leaving Simon Lomax sporting a shiner and Owen Marsden recovering in the ambulance.

Mark Smart obviously treated the day as a warm-up for the Norwich Cycling Academy races the next day and among the 3rd Cat riders VCN’s Dale Johnston came in sixth with the winner being our former racer Dieter Rowe riding for Strada Sport.

In the women’s race the VCN trio of of Lou Marsden, Jen Smart and Erica Howe were well up at the finish.
