If you’ve wondered about road racing but not yet taken the plunge, the upcoming @tli_cycling Warwickshire and Worcestershire grassroots series might be the one for you. Starting on 19 June it’s a series of five Wednesday evening races each hosted by a local club. Racing is on an age handicapped basis and, if you’re unsure, you can race a category down and see how you go.

To race, you need to be a member of TLI Cycling (£25 for 16+) and then you can enter the individual races online via the TLI website.

A good outing for the Holdstock brothers at the 3rd round of the West Midlands Youth Closed Circuit Race League at Stourport, hosted fantastically by Wyre Forest CRC. Austin and Quinn had better runs than last time out and they both finished 7th in the U10 and U8 boys races. Austin particularly had to dig deep and caught 7th place coming out of the final turn and turned on a good sprint up the hill for a strong finish 🚴‍♂️🚴‍♂️ Well done boys! 👏👏

Thanks for a great afternoon. Somehow these shots make it look like a gloriously sunny day which isn't quite how I remember that ride 🤣

Thank you to everyone involved. Having not remembered I'd done a TT before, I really enjoyed the organisation, slick professionalism from all of the volunteers, course comradery, route, weather (biblical), Debbie's help with directions & Andrea's amazing Flap Jacks! I'll be at the next one if the Flap Jacks make an appearance. It was so much fun.

Great photos David Pullen

Huge turnout for our Fort Royal Park Kids Hill Climb on Friday. Well done to all the young riders that took part. This was the last in the series of six Friday evening coaching sessions, and we had lots of boys and girls competing for the Queen and King of the Mountains podiums.

Thank you to the parents that cheered the riders on, to the WSJCC members that helped out during the sessions and to the Friends of Fort Royal Park for the refreshments.

RACE REPORT from Richard Maltby: Luke Allen and I are well and truly into race season. We both lined up for the 1st round of the Solihull Cycling Club No Thrills race series at Tudor Grange on a Sunny Wednesday night, it was a cat 2/3/4 so we knew the racing would be hard and fast. Luke was very active from the get go, creating some good attacks with strong riders. I ended up in a chasing bunch, which worked together to bring it all back. Three riders broke away from the main bunch which decided the podium. Both Luke and I tried a few times to create a gap from the bunch but nothing stuck, we rolled in with Luke just outside the points in 11th and myself in the bunch. It was a great race with an average speed of 27mph 😅.

I raced again Saturday at Tudor Grange and unfortunately had a big crash and will need a few weeks to recover from suspected bruised or cracked ribs. I managed to finish the race and I thought I snuck a top 10 only to find out two laps had gone by while I was on the ground. My helmet once again saved me from any serious damage!
……..

Great racing, guys, and the club wishes you a speedy recovery, Rich!
