Beeston RC- University of Nottingham GP 2015

Uni GP bike race Nottingham-17

I have to admit I was a little apprehensive to say the least when I drew the curtains back this morning- would anybody actually turn up to race in such biblical conditions?? The answer was an emphatic ‘YES!’ and the second edition of the Beeston RC– University GP proved to be as resounding a success as the first one! The origins of the race are documented here. The 2016 race will build upon a seemingly winning formula if the comments and platitudes from those who have raced the events are to be believed!

Proficiat! to the winners of each of the races, John Johnson of Matlock CC, Melissa Pritchard of Moda and Alessandro Williams of Tunstall Wheelers CC.

Full results are available at the British Cycling site here.

Enjoy a selection of photos from Shawn Ryan Photography- the full gallery is available at his website. There is also another superb gallery by Andrew Peat at AP Sports Photography here. Do check it out!
