Some missing bits from last weeks News;

Derek Blackall and Simon Weston had a long day out on their bikes at the Velothon Wales which included dodging the tacks thrown on the road by some local who didn't like the closed roads!

At IM70.3 Staffordshire, several EGTC members gave chase to World Champion Javier Gomez with Tim Lucas coming closest – or at least he was on the same discipline when Javier finished! Congrats also to Rich Traynor, Andrew Drake, Darren Holman and Mark Lofting. Mark reports that the race organisation wasn't up to much – indeed only his pre-race training regime was as badly organised!

Seb Donjon asked me to mention the St Catherine's Big Ride taking place on 19th July with distances including a 10 mile family ride as well as 40 and 60 mile versions for those who want to go further?

And so for this week;

Kim is on holiday so there will be no Core session for the next three weeks – 27 June, 4 July and 11 July

Simon Powell wanted to thank you all for your messages of interest and to let you all know that his bike is in relatively good condition following his accident and even his Garmin, which had stopped at the point of impact with a speed of 47kph showing on it still works! He has decided to retire his TT helmet which did its job perfectly but is somewhat scratched! His injuries won't apparently prevent him from some serious Wiggle-therapy as he recovers at home and Mr Chairman and I will continue to monitor that recovery on your behalf with our usual level of compassion!

News that Bognor Regis Tri on 9th August has received its Tri England Race Permit so if you fancy a very fast, flat race then go to for details

That's it for this week – see you at the Xmas Party on 5th December?

Train safe
