ORRL – Round 2 – Great Shefford

In what turned out to be a rather fine evening on a challenging Great Shefford road course, Club riders Dave Emms and Dan Atkins finished in the top half of the field in DPCCs round of the ORRL.

On behalf of the club I would like to thank all the race Marshals, and other volunteers that took time out of their day to make sure that this event ran smoothly.
A special thanks must also go to Nick Druce and Simon Evans who have put in long hours over the past couple of months, liaising with BC and ORRL to get this event and league up and running.

Official results to follow…

ORRL – round 1 – Result

ORRL round 1 winner
ORRL – Round 1 winner

Dave Emms wins at Weston on the Green – Dave timed his sprint to perfection to beat a large field of 70 plus riders on Friday 30th May. The other 6 DPPC riders had mixed fortunes being held up or put out of the race in two racing incidents. The most unfortunate was Seb Charlesworth who needed a trip to A&E, we all wish Seb a speedy recovery. Also of note was cracking ride by Tim Allen who was unconfirmed first junior home despite breaking a spoke.

The next round of ORRL is our round being organised by Nick Druce and Simon Evans on 4th June starting at Great Shefford at 7pm.

Also over the weekend:

All members are welcome, even if you don’t fancy racing!  It will be a great opportunity to meet the many new members who have joined our club this season!

Look forward to seeing you there,
