Mildenhall Cycling Rally
25th August - 27th August
Under 16's and Ladies
Pippa and Lennox Saint raced on this day taking on a series of grass track events including 400m
TT, 3K (Ladies), Devils, and many more.
This was a new discipline to both riders whilst Lennox was riding Jack Mitchell's track bike which
was a bit big but he lead most races until the sprints where we decided his bike was overgeared for him but at least he didn't
crash with no brakes.
400m Handicap Final - 2nd
Juvenile Omnium (Overall), Category C (Under 12s) - 4th
Ladies and Men
Charlie Porter, Pippa and Pete Saint rode on Sunday. Charlie rode the National 800m Championship,
and also took part in the fun events of the day including the slow bike race with a difference (the difference being you could
only use one arm and one leg) and the Mens World Hoop Championship (a race very much like musical chairs but with the riders
having to get their back wheels in the hoop). Pete came 6th in the Unknown Distance and Pippa came 6th in the ladies World
The day was finished off by a Team Sprint and Team Pursuit. Charlie, Pete, Pippa and Lennox made
up the Boston Wheelers team for the team pursuit having to ride 3k making sure 3 riders crossed the finish line. Pippa was
to lead the first half lap but had a bad start when her foot came unclipped but soon recovered and joined the back of the
team. Lennox dropped off the back after 2 laps leaving pippa, charlie and pete to finish the race. Pippa soon tired and was
struggling to stay on charlie's wheel but with the help from her dad managed to finish the race.
Pete, Charlie and guest rider Tom Ibbit from suningdale cc rode the TEam pursuit with each rider
leading the sprint for one lap. Pete rode the first lap followed by Tom and Charlie as the anchorman finished the pursuit
beating local team Spalding CC.
