A fantastic first event for Dudley MBC and Stourbridge CC. SCC’s leaders for this event were Lee Wood, Tom Payton and Kim Babb. Also, good job by Generation Pro Cycling Events for event management and Dudley MBC for their invaluable support. A great shame the weather let us down, nonetheless, some superb racing during the evening was seen by a decent number of spectators.
After 12 years leading the club, Kevin Payton stepped down as chairman on 28th March 2023 at our AGM. He has done some incredible support during these years, has controlled the committee meetings, responded to queries in a diplomatic fashion, has coached and ridden in SCC colours at several high profile events – PBP, world masters cx championships, local leagues. He was always well prepared for meetings, having thought about upcoming issues and was able to steer us to making good decisions. It’s sad to see him go but he will continue supporting our club and riding with us.
The 2023 AGM resulted in Kevin Payton stepping down as chairman after 12 years in this role. Kevin has steered the club exceptionally well, has supported all aspects of club activities and has been a fine figurehead. The new chairman is Roger Allen. We also elected 3 new committee members, Nikki Stojkowski, Neil Ruston and Steve Wooton. Paul Margetts stepped down to make way for new committee members. A very worthy winner of the cyclo-cross trophy was Jo Acha.
