Wahoo! It’s a West London Wednesday week, time to get busy and go beyond…..
Fought fortnightly with fortitude, it can only be West London VR the long running fast and furious race series on Wahoo RGT ….. as usual. a 16km race, but almost dead flat so expect some great sprint finishes. Historically, these flat courses have produced huge sprint finishes but we are seeing a trend whereby the GC contenders are putting in attacks during the race which has the effect of thinning the leading group. What will happen on Wednesday 11th May 7.30pm UK time?
The great thing is, that with the peleton splitting into natural groups, there are some great battles in the following groups too, and Ladies League which is incorporated into the main race. It’s fun for everyone!
It’s the big blast, fast and furious and you’ll be furious if you miss it!
We have just had a cracking race 5.2 (be sure to watch the Stream on ZMS) and 13 out of 97 (13.4%) starters were female. Three Ladies teams were competing too, reigning champions Twickenham CC, Smile On and our own West London VR Ladies. We are hoping other teams will join in soon too. Wouter Claes is back on top of the rankings but a flat race is on the bill next, and anything can happen. It is worth reminding everyone that this series has been constructed in a way that the ladies can get the thrills and benefits of a big race peleton in amongst the male riders, whilst scoring points over their female rider peers if they can beat more men. Check out the Series Details for the concept and rules.
