You probably didn’t realise that we actually took part in the Eastern Counties Cycling Association (ECCA) Festival over the May Bank Holiday weekend; however the Circuit Races many of you participated in last Saturday at Hog Hill counted towards the ECCA Festival Shield and you gained enough points from these events to hold onto an overall 4th Place. Winners on the Saturday from the LVYCC included Phoebe Birch, Owen Prenelle, Maya Tarlton, Louis Bilyard and of course these victories earned most points but just as importantly all those who got placings and all those who finished earned points that contributed to our overall total. Unfortunately we didn’t have many riders in the events held on Sunday & Monday (I think it was just Owen Williams, Aidan & Sean Kerrigan ) and so by the end of the weekend we had been overtaken by 3 other clubs with the Southend Wheelers coming out on top .

The ECCA Festival is always held over the first May Bank Holiday weekend and has been running for over 30 years. In the past winning the Festival Trophy was always considered highly prestigious by member clubs … so it might be worth a bit of planning next year to get our club name on that Trophy !
