Some cracking results for Stourbridge riders at Round 8 of the WMCCL at a very muddy Baggeridge.
Wins for Kevin Payton, Hannah Payton, Amanda Whitehouse, Phil Glaze and Tom Payton; Podium places for Stephen Whitehouse, Naomi Buckley-Melling and Anthony Neave; and commendable performances from Derek Hill, Andy Merrick, Jake Slack and Neil Ruston.
Despite that, everyone agreed that the best performances were those that were delivered by the fantastic pit crew, admirably led by Ian Cadwallader.
Well done all!
We have finally internetified, “Stourbridge Cycling Club 1964-1999” a book of observations written by John Cooper in 1999. In his own words, “it is not a history but just a snapshot of the ambitions, activities and concerns of the club during that period”
We hope you enjoy.
Too many good SCC results to post in full but ladies ruled the day with Isla, Amanda and Carol each winning their respective events.
A string of second places: Steve W, Jackie, Tom, Ant and Phil G.
Huge support as well from orange-clad well-wishers.
Special mention to Jake Slack who finished 20th in his first ever Cross race in the Under 14 Category. Well Done Jake!
