Samuel Jones continued to be one of the most active members of the club this year and was involved in two criterium races this week. On Tuesday 12th he was involved in the latest round of the Stourport Summer Series. By his own recent form Sam was disappointed to miss out on more BC points but still ended up with a good 12 position overall. However, he bounced back on Thursday at the Mid Shropshire Wheelers midweek series with an excellent 3rd place finish picking up more BC points.
On Friday 15th June two of the youth riders, Posie and Felix Forrester, continued their development on the track riding at the Friday Night Track League at Halesowen A&CC. They continue to gain new experience at track racing with Posie riding her first Derny race and holding her own in a string field competing predominantly against older age boys. Felix competed in a range of events and picked up track points in the hotly competed elimination race with a well timed sprint for the line.
In the time trial world a number of riders were involved in the Beacon 10 mile open TT on the K33/10D course on the 17 June 2018.
