Condor ladies take gold at Silverstone TTT Featured

Podium finish for our lovely ladies

We are delighted to announce that our Condor Ladies A team won the Bicester Millenium 9-up Team Time Trial at Silverstone last night. Zappi's ladies had previously taken the title every year but with their absence the title was wide open and competition was fierce. Battling against several other womens teams including Lovelo and the Crankettes, our ladies worked well together and dug deep to get results. Our Ladies B also did extremely well and came 4th, as did our Men's A team coming 7th with the Veterans in at 10th! Well done to all the teams racing at Silverstone.

For the first time we were allowed to enter 5 teams, which meant we are able to take 2 men's, 2 women's and a male veterans team. It was a very proud moment to see 45 Condors lined up at the start, representing the club in a sea of 'pink & black'. With strong winds and tough competition from other clubs, our riders all worked really hard and earned their drinks at the post-Silverstone knees up. Chapeau!

Battle of the Ages

The hotly contested battle between the Mens B team and the Veterans was decided by a mere 2 seconds, with the Mens B coming out on top. Depending on who you spoke to afterwards, 2 seconds is either a tiny or enormous margin.
