Cyclo-cross rides of the month went to Philip Glowinski for 4th in the regional championships as well as a few other London League podiums.

Starting on the road. Philip, Iain and Andy Snowball have been getting stuck into a few particularly mucky Surrey League races. VCL is hosting a round of the Thursday night handicaps on 8th May. Let Chris Cole know if you can help out.
