Wednesday (June 11th) evening saw the return to the calendar for the Warrington Road Club Derek Devonport Memorial under 50’s and over 50’s road races on the Budworth course in Cheshire run under the rules and regulations of TLI Cycling. We were blessed with a balmy evening and some great racing.
After months of planning to a level of detail that would rival the actual Grand Départ, the time finally arrived for the WRC elite to assemble in Kettlewell, Yorkshire for 3 days of riding on the roads that would greet Bradley Wiggins Chris Froome in July.
The first of several Warrington Road Club weekends planned for 2014 took place last weekend on the 8th and 9th of March. The trip, excellently organized by Carl Johnston, began with 21 riders leaving Horton Towers on Saturday morning. Peter Howl graciously drove all of our bags to the hostel.
