Saturday 18th May proved to be a warm if overcast day for the South East Regional Road Race on the Kirdfold circuit in Sussex. With a large field of 54 riders turning out for the race, it promised to be an interesting race.
The bunch stayed together for most of the race with surges here and there shaking off a few unlucky riders at the back. When the final push for the finish came Lydia Boylan (Team CTC), determined to keep her SE Champs jersey, was first over the line. Karla Boddy (MG Maxifuel) was second and Alexie Shaw (Les Filles RT) was third.
Unfortunately a crash further back as the bunch geared up for the last few hundred metres brought down a number of riders. Hopefully everyone's bruises are healing and they'll be back for more.

RankingsThe individual and club rankings have been updated and can be seen here. Alexie Shaw remains in place as league leader with Les Filles RT riders also in 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Unsurprisingly Les Filles RT also heads the club rankings but there are still several races to come. Plenty of other clubs are well represented lower down the rankings and its great to see riders turning out come snow, rain or sun to race.
Remember you need to compete in seven races to qualify for the top 20 ranking prizes at the end of the season.
Round 5 is the South East Regional Road Championships this Saturday in Kirdford. The race is now full but there is a waiting list so if you want a ride it might be worth putting your name down.
Marshalling at Crystal Palace - volunteers needed
The LWCR league needs to field six marshalls for the Crystal Palace Crits on Tues 11th June. League points will be awarded to anyone that marshalls as per this news item. PLEASE PLEASE let us know if you can volunteer as we need to co-ordinate with Dulwich Paragon and another club that will be providing marshalls on the same date. None of the races we do would happen without the goodwill and hard work of some people who work week in week out for nothing but the love of their sport so please give something back to them.
If you can't do it yourself, please feel free to nominate a friend or partner but any male friends or partners won't get any points! Please let Tabitha Rendall know via email@example.com ASAP.
