A few good runs

A nice video compilation of some of the best club rides..

Daisybank dig weekender 2012

Big thanks to all who turned up to repair Daisybank dirt jumps this weekend. It was an epic couple of days of dirt moving and packing in. I still cannot quite believe how much we achieved and how good the summer is going to be riding up there.

Buckholt Wood riding agreement

Last Friday (March 23rd) representatives from Cheltenham & County CC and Bigfoot MBC reached what we considered as a workable riding agreement with Natural England and the forestry manager

Cheltenham & County and Bigfoot MBC hit Ribbesford

With our two clubs having recently collaborated in trying to negotiate the return of mountain biking to Buckholt Woods we furthered this partnership with a superb gravity riding day at the downhill trails near to Ribbesford

2011 Forest of Dean Mini DH Round 1

Despite the sub zero conditions the club put forward a strong team for the first round of the 661 Mini DH. The classic FoD track 'Ski Run' was used with sections getting cut up and muddy during the practice session. Some of the wooded sections ended up very dark during racing, some riders optted to ride without their goggles!

Rachel just missed out on another podium and Charlie actually crashed at the final corner on his first run so lost several vital seconds. Rich deserves a special mention for consistant fast runs ending up as the fastest club member and 9th in Masters.

Cheltenham & County CC represented by:

Rachel Vicary (Ladies) Best time= 1:35.53 Position= 4th / 10
Stuart Bond (Seniors) Best time= 1:24.98 Position= 46th/ 68
Richard Dade (Masters) Best time= 1:19.88 Position= 9th / 52
Alex Marshall (Masters) Best time= 1:21.77 Position= 16th/ 52
Charlie Williams (Masters) Best time= 1:23.17 Position= 19th/ 52
