For those of you who haven't seen the news on the Facebook Group, the first consignment of the new club kit has arrived. Here's it all laid out in all it's glory:

ClubKitArrived

Some club members have already been out in the new kit:

A couple of results from races at the Milton Keynes bowl this week:

On Tuesday 19th June, Sean Dines took 6th place in his LVRC race (full results);

On Thursday 21st June, Aaron McCaffrey won the British Cycling Cat 3/4 race, after a strong sprint. Aaron commented: 

Race last night was the 3rd cat event at the bowl. Fast race on a sunny evening at an average of 26mph for the hour, with no significant moves going through the race due to the speed. Once we got on the big circuit the numbers started to whittle down and it came down to a bunch sprint, which I won. Was good to win again at the bowl especially in the new kit, which was super comfy and fast.

Last weekend's trip to Italy with Sean obviously helped, riding up all the mountains including the Stelvio, Mortirolo and Gavia.
