2 top 10's in the same weekend

Conditions on Sunday morning were absolutely perfect for racing, and riders from Team took full advantage of them.

Sam Hayes bagged third place in the Beds Road 11.3 mile spoco with 27:20, just 14 seconds behind the winner. This was 42 seconds quicker than he clocked on the same course in October, so any concerns he had about missed rides through the winter seem unfounded. It was a fantastic start to his season.

Meanwhile 4 of the team were over at the E1/25 near Saffron Walden. The mild conditions and light wind, plus solid winter training for both, all came together to see Steve Robinson and Paul King finish 7th with 1:02:10 which is a course PB improvement for them by 3 minutes 18 seconds!

Chris Hartley and David Ledgerton came home in 1:07:03, which is great first ride together as a pair and hints at more to the come from the duo.
