Review of the season-
We ran 70 saturday sessions over 35 weeks, with only 3 cancelled.
There have been weekly road rides enjoyed by members and parents.

We visited Cyclopark in Kent on 3 occasions including our Club Circuit Championships. These sessions were greatly enjoyed, we hope the opportunity will be offered to our club next year.

Our members took part in the South and London region omniums at all ages – U10/U12/U14/U16. Lukas Nerurkar was an U12 national qualifier and placed 6th nationally

In circuit racing-U10/U12/U14/U16-U12 saw us gain a regional champion Freddie Newman* and many members were riding at races locally, regionally and nationally.
