Ris­ing star Will Ker­shaw tack­led the Rain­bow Clas­sic Cri­terium which was held on an in­door cir­cuit at Event City in Manch­ester to co­in­cide with Bike Expo.

The cir­cuit had a slippy con­crete sur­face and al­though Ker­shaw was in a group of six riders that broke way from the start, he fell with two laps to go and had to chase to get back in con­tention and was only able to fin­ish fifth.

Four Wheel­ers com­peted in the Manch­ester and Dis­trict 10 mile time trial on the no­to­ri­ously slow course that runs from Twem­low Lane to Chelford Is­land and back. Chris Chad­dock was the fastest from the Club with 23.52 (a very good time on this course) fol­lowed by Mark Hal­loway (24.31), Roger Wrenn (25.56) and Paul Fen­ton (26.25).

Sev­eral Wheel­ers pre­fer to es­cape the rav­ages of win­ter by rid­ing at the Manch­ester Vel­drome. Amongst those are Peter Jack­son and Oliver Johnstone who race in the ACT Track League on a Mon­day evening. Johnstone has been hav­ing some suc­cess in re­cent weeks, in­clud­ing sec­ond place in the Scratch race and a win in the Course Des Primes, and is cur­rently ly­ing third in the over­all points clas­si­fi­ca­tion.
