Race Roundup - 21st/22nd March 2015

Video courtesy of Mountain Goat Performance Coaching

Another great weekend of racing and results for the team.  David Lewis-Smith took a fine 6th place in the Wansbeck Spring Road Race (see above video of his sprint finish where David is moving almost as fast as Austin Wilcock!), and Matty Wells was on the podium for the fourth race in a row on Saturday at York.  Plus there was a good showing of Vagabonds for the Cramlington 18 with the team headed up by Mark Reed.

Vagabonds Classic Movie Night

cyclocross video

You are invited to a Vagabonds classic movie night!

Join us for a double bill of 1960s Vags cycling magic.

A Vags Cyclocross Race followed by a Vags Reliability Trial, brought to life by Bill Baty's 1990s commentary of the events and the competitors' cycling pedigrees: 

"He used to be the head of the cheese counter at the Co-op in Wallsend"
"The lad in the red is the manager of Tescos at Kingston Park"
"He's a driver for the breweries; I think he needs a pint or two to get him out of there"


Bring some movie snacks and settle down for an evening with your fellow Vags. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided.

Venue: West Moor Community Centre.

Date: Monday 23rd March.

Films last around 45 minutes in total and the evening will commence at 7.30 pm.
