Representing 3C Nick O'Hara managed to put together consecutive top 10 places in Elite/1/2 category races last week.
On 15th June at Goodwood motor racing circuit O'Hara unleashed a sprint that any younger rider would have been proud of! Timing was sadly just off on this outing as O'Hara just missed taking the bunch sprint. Settling for tenth in such esteemed company was definitely no mean feet for the 49 year old.
Nick rode again on the following evening at Mountbatten Center Portsmouth. A smaller field and challenging conditions made for ferocious racing with average speed around 28 mph and max speeds in excess of 35mph. O'Hara certainly found the hard racing he was looking for acquitting himself well with 8th place.
Racing in the preceding event Phil Glasgow made a welcome and resounding return to bunch racing at Mountbatten. Involving himself in most of the decisive moves and challenging consistently for position Phil moved with a stealth through the bunch that belied his lack of recent racing. A minor tactical error in the last lap prevented Phil from challenging for a top position but coming in 11th showed he is no slouch on the tarmac and certainly one to watch.
Chapeau to all and more of the same please! Who's going to join us?
