New signing Mountain Bike rider Kirby Bennett was in cracking form winning his first event 
for his new team just 2 days after joining. Kirby won the Friday Evening Mountain Bike 
Series event at Kilworth, Leicestershire, after a race long battle with team mate Peter 
Busby (who finished 2nd), with their other team mate Tim Stowe in 5th place.

Then just a day and half later, all 3 riders were racing in Round 4 of the Midland Mountain

2nd and Tim Stowe, having his best performance of the season, in 3rd place.

Jonathan Wears was also in brilliant form, winning the Yorkshire Cycling 15 mile Time Trial
in a time of 30:35.  This is Jonathans first ever Open Time Trial victory and follows on 
from a series of top class performances in recent weeks.
 
Ian Cooper travelled all the way up to Bashall Eaves in North West Lancashire to compete in 
Round 1 of the National Road Race Series for Veteran riders.  Cooper in his first season 
with Team Jewson, is better known as a Track and Short Circuit rider, but he performed 
excellently on this very tough and hilly event against the U.K.'s leading riders to take 
a well earned 3rd place.
 
One of the Teams Allrounders Pete Smith continued to shine at the Milton Keynes Bowl circuit
races with a second place during the week.  Smith has recorded 4 wins and 4 second places 
in the last 8 rides - nothing but consistant.
 
Derrick Woodings won the Darley Moor Circuit race for riders 70 and over.  Woodings could 
have competed in the 75 + race, but selected to ride with the younger group, and still 
showed them a clean back wheel. Woodings is a former Professional rider and Ex World 
Masters Track Champion.  Team mate Mick Allan finished 2nd in the 60 + race.  The event 
was held in very wet and windy conditions.
