Greetings to you all!

Well our para-cycling mega pilot Laura Thompson and her stoker Emma Foy certainly put in some great form again over the weekend at the World Road Cycling Champs in Switzerland – two silvers in the time trial and road race is terrific form as they continue their build up to the Rio Olympic Games next year – particularly when their time trial was just 0.03 off gold! Great work ladies and congratulations on your mighty fine efforts.

Next we wish another of our young stars Emma Cumming all the best in her final build up to the 2015 Junior World Track Championships in Kazakhstan. Emma is currently in Cambridge doing the final training camp with her team mates – so enjoy the awesome experience, the travel and we wish you all the very best for some really fast times! We’ll all be cheering you on the deep south Emma!
