The Bank Holiday weekend period has been a massive success for the t1diabetes.info awareness road cycling team ! Three podiums in three days in three different events with three different racers taking to the podium !
First up was “Awareness Ambassador Racer” Jason White (pictured) he achieved a fantastic result for the Team by winning at Castle Combe in Wiltshire and taking the top step of the podium! Matt Franklin Jason’s team mate got in the break of 10 riders with Jason and later led Jason out, who then opened up his sprint early to clinch the victory! John Russell (pictured) took advantage to hop of early once he had given his all for the team to cheer Jason on as he crossed the line to win the event !
The following day it was “Type 1 Racer” Alfie Peters who stood on the podium when racing at a very impressive U16 Race at the West Midlands Circuits Series. Alf did amazing to take a good 3rd place in a strong field. He rode an intelligent race, working in the breaks and chasing down others….This tops off a great couple of weeks of racing. A second at East Devon series and a win in the Cornish series and that sprint of his is just getting better and better !
Next up it was “Awareness Ambassador Time Trial Racer” Richard Spink who in his 1st Open of the season, took 3rd !Richard said this after the event “With an Orbana energy drink, and the super fast Dymag 40mm front wheel, I was able to help myself to a 3hr 46min 100mile tt today”. “Bounce protein after the event will get me ready for training next week. I can’t wait to try out the Dymag 80mm front wheel rapido! rapido!” Well done Richard ! from all at t1diabetes.info and our supporters.
