Road Racing – Winter Warmers

After an initially mild winter, colder temperatures seem to have now arrived in January. While it might not seem like the season for it yet, the FCCC Road Race team has already been in action.

Several new racers have recently joined the successful team run by road race secretary Warren Vye, and some of those have already been racing in the Full Gas Winter Series at Hillingdon.

Adam Basson hit the ground running with a superb 10th place in his first ever road race in 4th Cat on 12 January. Jamie Parkinson also finished in the top twenty in that same race, which was also his first entry into road racing.

On the following weekend, 19 January, Warren Vye came 6th in his first race of the year, in the Vets event. Luke Stratford also got into the points with a 10th in the 3/4 Cat race.

Last weekend, 26 January, we had four of the new racers competing together (see the main photo accompanying this article). The official results are yet to be confirmed, but provisionally it looks like Adam further increased his points tally with a very fine 6th, Jamie got his total going with 10th, Matt Fawcett finished in the top 20 and Joe Naylor unfortunately dropped his chain and couldn’t finish (though no doubt getting some good racing experience on the way).

A superb start by the FCCC Road Race team to 2019, and it’s only January! Well done to all, and thanks also to those who went down to cheer them on and offer advice.
