More Hillingdon success last night with two Thames Velo on the podium in Pete Chapman with second, and Dylan Hubble with third.

Once again a supporting team of Luke McCarthy, Mike Cutter, Rob Mosley and Phil Mosley raced and maintained the team spirit to race for each other.

A nasty crash marred the race with many riders receiving medical attention. Thankfully none of our boys were involved, but best wishes to those that we're.

As if to prove that last week's win at Hillingdon wasn't a fluke, Dylan Hubble repeated the achievement and took the win again last night!

Compared to last week's hot and dry conditions, this week was raced in torrential rain with Dylan, Phil Mosley, Rob Mosley, Luke McCarthy and Pete Chapman representing Thames Velo.

As ever, Dylan took the win with the help and teamwork put in by the guys and the nutritional support from our sponsors, 'For Goodness Shakes', but it's safe to say that Dylan has a 'racing brain' and knows how to win!

Recent races for Thames Velo have had the misfortune of Jim Bainbridge and Max O'Connor both sidelined and recovering from crashes, so a bit of good news from last night was very welcome!

Once again the Tuesday evening series at Hillingdon was the venue for a great display of teamwork that saw Dylan Hubble take the win in a fast bunch sprint.
The four man team of Rob Mosley, Pete Chapman, Phil Mosley, along with Dylan, all raced for each other as a team, and Pete putting in a text book lead out to let Dylan power his way to the line and win. Phil, who normally sacrifices himself in the lead out, also got in on the points this time with 10th.

Another win for the club and more great advertising for our nutrional sponsor, 'For Goodness Shakes'.

Another Tuesday night racing at Hillingdon and another consecutive week scoring points!

Last week, Jim Bainbridge kept the point scoring streak going by coming 10th, so the pressure was on this Tuesday to keep it going!

Lining up for Thames Velo were, Pete Chapman, Dylan Hubble and Jim Bainbridge, along with our second claim member, Gabriella Nordin racing for her team SunVelo and getting the legs ready for the Swedish Nationals on Sunday.

The race was all going to plan until the last lap when Jim unfortunately got caught in a crash, but thankfully both Pete and Dylan managed to come 6th and 10th and keep the points run going for another week, then all back to Eton fot the now customary celebration beer!

Gabriella showed good form amongst the men and finished strongly in the top 20. Best of luck in the Nationals Gabs!

The 'For Goodness Shakes' goodies have been doing the trick recently! Pete Chapman rode an impressive time trial on his modified road bike last Thursday evening at the MDCC 10, breaking his personal best by two minutes to come 6th overall and Paul Stonell also rode to finish 17th.

Saturday was the prestigious London Nocturne, a criterium race held in central London, with Max O'Connor showing the jersey again after Jon Shillingford raced it a few years ago.
The race was full gas from the start with Max laying down some serious power figures sprinting out of every corner, as is the nature of crit racing. An amazing atmosphere and racing experience for our junior racer, and Max even got to sit opposite Ed Clancy in the rider village whilst trying not to chuck up after the effort of the race!

Sunday was the Keysoe Road Race in Bedfordshire with Jim Bainbridge taking the line in the 85km race. A break of three got away to mop up the podium places, but in the sprint from the chasing bunch, Jim was the strongest to take 4th place. Jim has consistently been scoring points in all his races and really adding to Thames Velo's excellent run of results.

Unfortunately not everything has been going to plan in the club, as Paul Buckley suffered another bout of bad luck with a crash on the first day of The Transatlantic Way endurance race in Ireland. Being the true hard man he is, Paul got back on to continue riding not realising he'd broken a wrist and badly bruised his pelvis. Eventually after about 160 miles, the pain became too intense and Paul had to abandon. Heal up fast Paul.
