Radeon Coaching: Odd Down Circuits
It was another day to remember for James Coleman (pink socks!) and Becci Sutton (white/black, 2nd left) as they bagged 1st and 8th in their respective races. James making it 2 from 2 in this year’s Winter Series at Odd Down in the men’s 2/3 category. Both flying the flag superbly for the emerging VCWRace Team.
Unfortunately it was day to forget for the 4th Cats with nobody in the
Top 10. A crash, poor positioning in the brutal wind and an increased pace over the previous races meant that riders either dropped out or finished well off the pace.
Finally, a mention for club members Jon Arnold and Andy Stewart for supporting Radeon Coaching who were hosting their first event at the circuit. Jon and Andy have supported every round thus far providing organiser and commissaire knowledge to ensure everyone enjoys their day.
The sun shone and VC Walcot came out to play. With 3 rides departing Brown’s at 9:30am and plenty of racing at Odd Down Circuit we were spoilt for choice on Sunday.
Thanks to Nick, Paula, Arran, Mike and Tom who were in charge of leading rides.
Congrats to James Coleman for his solo win in the men’s 2/3s race plus Sam Blacker, Pete Giddings and Becci Sutton for their respective Top 10 finishes.
Was great to see Jon Arnold, Andy Stewart and Tavis Walker helping with race organisation.
We shouldn’t be having this much fun in January!

Saturday’s #Clubrider loop in its Veloviewer glory. #Easyrider+ pace out with a suitably nice stop at the farm shop in Bishop Sutton for caffeine fuelled refreshments. Then faster-paced #Clubrider ‘gruppo compacto’ back to Bath.
Bloomin’ marvellous despite the floods and some outbursts of rain!
The @VeloClubWalcot twitmeister-in-chief has been asking this morning for 2013 highlights. Here’s mine….
Of course, there are plenty of members in it for the racing but in my case it’s the camaraderie and the views, the exercise and the shiny kit. And basking in the reflected glory of the speedy riders is good, too.
Small selection of pics from our recent Velodrome session. Next one is on 22nd June 2014. Book your place from approx March onwards.
