Report & Results – Mid Shropshire Wheelers Event
(thanks Dave Mellor)

The third in the summer series of Mid Shropshire Wheelers, Shrewsbury Sports Village Circuit Races took place on Sunday 11th May and incorporated the British Cycling West Midlands Youth Championships and a round of the Paracycling National Series.


Entries were very high which necessitated running separate under 8 and under 10 races to keep within the safe circuit limit which was a first and shows the popularity of cycling at present and the Shrewsbury Sports Village as a venue for top class racing.

Unseasonal May weather meant a day of strong cold winds and occasional rain showers which kept the venue café busy but proved tricky on the hairpin where several riders came to grief in the early races. Local favourite Esme Niblett took a particularly heavy tumble and unfortunately an ambulance had to be called which caused the under 14 race to be halted for a little while. Happily it is reported that Esme soon escaped and will be back on the bike soon.

Paracycling Podium

There were home West Midland Championship wins for Mid Shropshire Wheelers riders Hollie Owens and Ellie Rusell in the under 12 and under 14 girls races respectively, Silver for Rebecca Woodvine in the under 8 girls and in the 2/3/4 Men home club rider Kirk Vickers was narrowly outsprinted for the win from a 4 man breakaway that formed at two thirds distance. In the E/1/2/3/4 Womens race it was a win for Solihulls Sophie Faulkner in a bunch kick.

The Paracycling bike riders mixed it in the 2/3/4 race with Jaco van Gass just missing the top 10 in 12th overall to take the National Series win. In the Trike and Handbike race, Craig McCann took the trike win with Alan Cook and Caroline Wareing rounding out the handbike winners for a full day of racing.
