Tour of Cambridgeshire Grando Fondo Success!

45 club members took part in the inaugrual Tour of Cambridgeshire over the weekend of 6 & 7th June.  The event featured a Time Trial (TT) stage on the Saturday and a 128km closed road Grand Fondo on the Sunday.  The top 25% in each event automatically qualify for the 2015 Amateur World Championships in Denmark this September.

Four of our members competed in tough conditions to cover the 28km against the clock.  Unseasonably windy weather added to the difficulty of the challenging TT course and despite giving their all, no one achieved a top 25% qualifying time.
Results as follows:
 Adam Young
 Ed Chedzoy
 Russ Powell 48:16.49
 Martyn Higson 53:39.41

On Sunday, the 43 club members took part in the Grand Fondo event.  With amazing local support, and fantastic weather the ride was a hugely memorable experience.  It was also fast, with many club members posting sub 4hr times for the 128km.  In fact, 20 members achieved the magic 25% required to earn a place at the finals in Denmark.

Well done to all that took part, and special thanks to Russ Powell for organising everyone.
