Lostock 6 - Captain's BLOG
Well then ! the first new race in the A&T road championships since 2012 and what a good race it turned out to be. Personally gutted not to race but i felt it was very important to attend and shout and cheer from the car around the course. A fantastic turnout with 23 blue vest. The course was very hilly in parts but in saying that quite a few members would of smashed, and i mean smashed PB's if it was a 10k race. There were some fantastic performances in my opinion and standing out was Mark Collins, Joan Cooke and Catherine Brides. It was great to welcome Stuart Livesey to the fold in the road season along with Joan Cooke, Kerry Lomas, Mark Collins & Gary Stevens making their first appearances this season.
This time i'm starting with the ladies who only went and Won their team event with Josie coming home first followed by Louise and then Vanessa - Well done you 3 you did the club proud.
For the men Simon Ford led from the front and had a great rum followed by the improving Mark Collins and then Gary Stevens after a few days on the Benidorm Booze wagon. There was also a great sprint finish with Roberst / Bushrod & Hamilton- Super effort you 3 and it was all taken in great competitive spirit.
Thank you to Catherine Brides who stayed behind for the presentation and collected the prizes for the ladies and i'm led to believe we have a super baker amongst us and made the team some lovely lemon drizzle cake - Thanks Kay Campbell , sorry we couldn't stay to sample it for but we had kids to pick up, maybe you could try and bring some more next week !!! pse pse
