Recent Events:

There was no racing last weekend however many of our members participated or marshalled at the Tour de Femme. A quick look at the results saw as many as a dozen Vets ladies in the top 50. And there were some very good results. Janine Ridsdale came 7th overall finishing fast in the lead bunch. Congratulations to all Vets ladies who participated. The list is a long one.
