3 races in one weekend

Report by Shu Pillinger

The cycle season got off to a good start with a win at the non-cycling (!) St Albans parkrun 5k on Saturday morning, warming up the legs for a lunchtime 2-up TT around Wrestlingworth on the edge of Cambridgeshire. Stephanie Wheatley and I partnered up for the 25 mile course and were joined by pairings of Steve Maxted and Richard Marriott, and Victoria Gunn and Christine Pout. Steph and I had a steady first attempt at a 2-up, finishing as second female team in 01:14. [ask Steve for a review of his race and the puncture saga!]. My third race of the weekend was the Wiggle No Excuses 80 Mile Cyclosportive where I finished 5th woman in the Gold standard on Sunday (see report). Other Verulam riders there were Jim Phillips and Pete Tarry.
