October Newsletter

As explained on the forum and on Facebook groups, we have new kit suppliers. All information about this can be found here https://www.teammk.com/shop.

These new arrangements mean that we are running order windows. The first windows are now open and will close soon with Epic Orange closing on Sat 31st October, and Raceskin on Wednesday 4th November. So if you are looking for kit for Christmas then get your orders in now.

If you have any queries regarding sizing, always measure yourself (or child up), compare against the size charts and then if still in doubt, contact the respective supplier at:

Epic Orange:  info@epic-orange.com

Raceskin:  info@raceskin.co.uk

Don't miss out, as the next order window won't be until February 2021.

After mammoth efforts from race organisers Bill Shirley, Tony Walton and John Muncaster to get to grips with Covid-19 guidance and the BC format of 15 mins crit racing for a max of 24 competitors, three Saturdays of racing went ahead at the Bowl. The feedback from the parents of participants was very positive too.

As well as the organisers, the club would also like to thank the following volunteers who gave up a Saturday afternoon or several just to make these events possible:

Adrian Thornley Steve Dicks
Oz Grady Mark Wilson
Matt Wilson Jonny Mildred
Alasdair Mildred Hannah Walton
Joe Walton Sue Muncaster
Shaw Gallen Nicole Cebak
Amelia Cebak Alex Tate
Alex Tate John Ritchie

After an immensely popular summer series organised by the man of many hats, Alun Duncan-Jones, he managed to get together another two autumn time trials that were well attended. The final table of results will be published on the website soon.

But as with the youth races, the club would like to once again thank the volunteers who gave up their time to make these events happen, be it for putting up/taking down signs, time-keeping, number spotting or publishing results:

Mick Atkinson Ritchie Dixon
Jon Hunt Graeme Church
Clive Faine Trevor Hook
Tim Goldsmith Barry Robertson
Adam Pearson John Muncaster
Jo Parker Linda Dewhurst
Lucie Gallen Alan Duncan-Jones

Thank you all!
