The first ever Women's Podium at the Wheal Jane Circuit

History made at new Wheal Jane circuit on April 2nd!

posted in: Latest News | 0

 

History was made in Cornwall at the new Wheal Jane circuit, by Jenny Corser (Mid Devon CC), Alex Platt (Bikechain-Ricci) and Ashley Fletcher (Southfork Racing) who became the first ever adult winners on the new Wheal Jane Cycle Circuit. Under blue skies and warm sunshine, the three races were all competitive and exciting.

 

The women’s E/1/2/3/4 race split quickly in to two groups, which battled throughout the race, with the two Mid Devon riders Jenny Corser and Juliet Elliott finishing 1st and 2nd. Lucy Monk (Exeter Wheelers) rounded out the podium, which was remarkable, as she only entered the event at 11.38pm on the night before the race.

 

Alex Platt (Bikechain-Ricci) proved too strong for the large cat 4 field, and the points gained shifted him to third cat, so he also entered the cat 2/3 race, where he gained a further 3 points, a total of 13 points for the day, so a great day’s racing for him.

Alex was followed over the line by Simon Szender in his first complete race. He is unattached, so someone should snap him up. Micheal Hoare (UPC Rockets and Rascals) filled the last step on the podium.

 

This  great day’s  racing followed the youth racing on Saturday 1st. The Wheal Jane circuit is the result of the cycling community supporting a Crowdfunding scheme to the tune of £17000. There is still work to do, but we are under way, and with the support of South West riders, we will be able to put on a more ambitious programme in 2018.

Further dates for 2017 are 7th May and 16th July
