Barrie Mitchell

Despite the absence of Team Boss Mick Ives who was taking a well earned continental holiday with wife following the Tour De France (I bet she was pleased), the remaining members of the squad produced excellent results in tricky weather conditions. On Saturday in the Coventry CC 10 mile time trial Barrie Mitchell confirmed his return to top form with an excellent 22 mins 40 secs closely followed by team-mate Martin Hackley in 23 mins 33 secs. Next day Martin scored an excellent win in his age group in the LVRC Mid-Shropshire  Wheelers Circuit Race at Shrewsbury; he was aggressive throughout the race and crashed on a tricky hairpin so his win was an outstanding achievement.

John Stephenson travelled south to Essex for the Percy Stallard National Series and finished an excellent 5th in a very strong field. This high placing means that John is now equal leader in the season-long National series.

Meanwhile, up North in the Clifton CC road race near Beverley, Jack Watson and Derrick Woodings raced 4 laps of a very tough circuit. Both missed the main break of four riders but were in a chasing group of seven which whittled down to five. Derrick led Jack out up the finishing hill for Jack to finish 5th in the race but 1st in his age group with Derrick a close second; a super result for the pair and a good weekend for Team Jewson MI Racing.
