It was great to have the opportunity to launch the newly designed Thames Velo kit at a few races over the weekend (big thanks to Phil Mosley for all his hard work in getting the new kit sorted).
First up was an afternoon at Hillingdon at the Moose.eu End of Summer Criterium, organised by our very own Steve Green. Mike Cutter and Neil Lawrie were first onto the circuit in the 4th Cat race. A two man break got away, but Neil kept himself in the chase and managed to grab some points with 5th place, while Mike unfortunately got squeezed onto the grass and had to settle with finishing in the bunch.
Next up it was the 3rd Cat race with Phil Mosley and Max O'Connor racing. As he has all season, once again Phil sacrificed himself as lead out man and launched Max at the right time to grab another fantastic 2nd place to add to his already impressive palmares of wins and podium visits this season.
In the final race of the day, Dylan Hubble raced in the E12 race and managed to keep the points tally going with 9th spot. A good days work all round!
Sunday it was the turn of Jim Bainbridge to parade the new kit at the Hitchin Nomads road race in Great Barford. A freak neck strain just before the race wasn't the best preparation to race, but Jim persevered to be there in the bunch at the finish but just outside the points.
Sunday was also the first race of the new Cyclocross season, and Kurt Edmonds and Arnold Merkin were at Newbury for the first race of the Wessex League on a dry fast course that reminded the lungs and legs of the rigours of CX.
A successful launch for the new kit and great to now have the logo of our sponsor, 'For Goodness Shakes' to show off on our jerseys at the races. ... See MoreSee Less

More success this week with third for Jim Bainbridge at Hillingdon on Saturday, in round 1 of the BC West Thames series. A late withdrawal through injury from Mike Cutter left Jim to race alone, but he was joined on the start line once again by our second claim member, Gabriella Nordin.
An early break of two was left to get away by the peloton and eventually went on to take first and second. Jim sprinted from the bunch to easily take 3rd place, and in doing so regained his 2nd Cat license. Currently we have three Cat 2's racing for the club with Jim, Dylan Hubble and Jim Shillingford (although Jon has not raced much this season due to injury).
Unfortunately for Gabs, a crash ended her race early, but not before she put in some strong efforts off the front of the bunch.
With our new kit due for delivery any day now, we'll soon be proudly bearing our sponsor 'For Goodness Shakes' on our new look jerseys at the races.
