After first of all being placed third on a wet and windy day at Hog Hill, Scott Cousins was then moved up a place to second after it turned out that there was a lapped rider who finished in front of Scott last Saturday in the Shaftesbury CC 2/3 race. Also riding was Neil Chapman and Matt Carter who finished in the top 20. The race split on the first lap after a super fast start and was spread all over the circuit. Many riders called it a day when it started to rain hard again but all Maldon riders finished. 

Keeping it to himself and almost letting it past uner the radar, Steve Bass took a tentative step into road racing and came away with a second place at last week's race on the Ford test track at Dunton. CLICK HERE 

 

For the many club members who went to the Smithfield Nocturne criteriums on Saturday night

He kept the gap to the finish to take another win for Maldon. This win also gave him enough points to gain his 2nd category licence.

Diss RR 07/08/2011: Scott Cousins jumped away on the second lap and with the help of a couple of other riders caught the 3 leaders. He was away most of the race in this break and managed 5th and myself (Neil Chapman) didnt do much during the race but jumped away with appox 8 miles to go and managed 11th.

Finsbury Park 50 12/6/2011: Darren Frostick rode this event on the F1/50 course. This was his first serious one of the year as it is a qualifier for the ECCA BAR. On a cold and increasing windy morning he managed a time of 1.52.13 which was only 36 seconds off his PB and club record of 1.51.37.

National 50 19/6/2011:It was a tough day with a really strong headwind, not helped by being held up at a turn (total stop, and unclip) finished on a 2:00:16 - not a great time but finished 54th overall up from 70th the year before so an improvement. That was easily my hardest ride this year. Hopefully it will stand me in good stead for next weeks ECCA 100. Darren Frostick.
