International success

Whilst the toughest and largest free sporting event in the world takes place—“the Tour de France”—Team Jewson sent one of its top Junior riders as part of a composite team to compete in the 6 day International “ Junior Tour of Ireland” race 17 yr old Hugh Carthy, the youngest of the teams junior squad, produced the ride of his life, and was one of the stars of the 6 day race. In the Prologue Time Trial, Hugh finished a brilliant 9th fastest from the 60 riders, just 15 secs. behind the winner Stage 2 was a disaster for him, due to a very bad bout of stomach ache which resulted him in not eating and drinking throughout the stage , with the net result, that he lost almost 5 minutes to the leaders. Stage 3 was much better, and he had started to feel much better in him self, with the stage ending in a huge bunch finish, he ended outside the top 20.—but was satisfied in his riding. On stage 4 the much expected rain and wind, made it a very tough day for everyone, but this is where Hugh showed his class, after 30 km there was a group of 3 riders , 2 mins ahead of the main pack, , Hugh attacked and in the space of 10 mins he had joined the leaders, then on a 3rtd Cat Climb, he attacked again , getting rid of 2 of the riders, one of them, the...

Team Jewson MI Racing Results weekend 16th and 17th July

The poor weather over almost all of the weekend made racing tougher than usual but didn’t prevent Team Jewson MI Racing from producing some outstanding results. On Saturday Derrick Woodings overcame the wind and rain on the exposed Darley Moor Motor Racing Circuit in Derbyshire to win his age Group at LVRC Darley Moor Circuit Race . Then on Sunday Pete Smith won round 7 of the MSTINA Jersey Series on a tough course  in Hampshire in exactly the same conditions.  Pete outsprinted his rivals in what was left of the original bunch which was much depleted by dispirited riders who made an early return to the warmth of the HQ. Meanwhile near Alcester in Warwickshire, Michele King won the Midlands 10 mile Time Trial Championships on a wet and windy course  in 22.16 beating international athlete Ciara Horne (who’s heading out to the Under 23 European Champs next week) into second place. Michele said,  ‘I’m pleased with the result because I’m in a block of heavy endurance work at the moment so am lacking top end power.’ Crikey, what will she do when on top form? It was an action packed weekend for junior Josh Teasdale who finished 3rd in the Stockton Wheelers 25 mile time trial on Saturday evening with a time of 55:21 and winning the junior event by 16 minutes.Then on Sunday morning he travelled to Derby for the British Schools National 10 mile time trial and won that by just under a minute (and only 5 seconds off his own British Schools national record); this now secures him the ‘BSCA Best All-rounder National Jersey’ which is a superb achievement. Josh then...
