It was another busy week of racing with riders involved in two criterium events this week- Stourport and Birmingham Business Park.
On Tuesday the 8th May three Wyre Forest riders took part in round 1 of the Stourport summer circuit series hosted by Gannett CC.
In the mens 3/4 race both Samuel Jones and Jono Goulding were in action with both riders putting in a strong performance. Jono finished just outside the top 10 and Sam finished in 8th place picking up 2 BC points. In the ladies race Sue O’Shaughnessy finished in 9th place. Wyre Forest will host the next round in the series on the 15th May 2018.
On Saturday 3 riders travelled to the Birmingham Business Park for the second round of the Behind Bars Criteria series.
In the mens 3rd Cat race both Samuel Jones and Matthew Boazman were in action on a fast and flat circuit in what ended up being a fairly tactical race with none of the breaks being allowed to get away by the bunch.
This resulted in a bunch finish with both riders finishing just outside the points in 11th and 14th place.
Erin Boddice was in action in the ladies E/1/2/3/4 race and put in another good performance in a strong ladies field to finish in 12th place.
