Thetford Winter Series Round 1

With the winter racing season now under way it was time to start the Thetford Winter Series, with the first race over Brandon – Fireroad 6.

This is always a fun place to ride, with flat fast flowing singletrack and the odd incline to test out the lungs and leg muscles.

With the mild weather of late, the race filled up fast and TROG were very well represented, with 17 members racing, including 2 race virgins – Debbie and Tony (Forest).

The rain had threatened but it stayed dry and not too cold !!  Some excellent results were achieved by all, with a 1st place from Lewis Parker in the Junior category – that boy is fast !!!

From the comments received after the race, it seemed everyone had fun.
