Great start to season for Mick Ives’ elite team

Elite cycling team Team Jewson-MI Racing-Polypipe produced another brilliant set of results across several events and

disciplines last weekend.

Lady triathlete Ali Moult was in fantastic form in the Battlefeld Durathlon, where she won the Ladies’ Race by a massive 10 minutes, and was only beaten in time by three of the male competitors. Team mate Greg Ashley finished in 10th place.

Both are also members of Rugby Tri Club, but race for the Coventry Team.

Greg from Braunston went much better in the A5 Rangers Hilly Time Trial near Towcewster, where he finished in second place with a time for the hilly 15 1/4 mile circuit in 41 mins 38 secs. Team mate Russell Green (Rugby) finished 7th fastest with 44-08 and they combined to form the winning team. They won the team competition last year as well.

Then on Sunday Greg rode the A5 Rangers 10 mile time trial, which was held on a slow/hilly course, near Towcester. Here he finished 7th fastest, and won the combined race championship over the weekend (15 1/4 mile hilly T T and 10 mile TT), his second victory of the weekend.

The team’s Road Race riders were in action at the Fletch Waltone event near Lutterworth, Leics.

Derrick Woodings won the 70km race for riders 75 and over, his second win in two races.

Martin Hackley (Dunchurch) followed up his win last week with second place in the 70km Race for riders 65+ and team mate John Stevenson from Warwick also finished 2nd in the 85km race for riders 50+.

With four victories and three seconds over the week, Team Director Mick Ives, was very happy: “The 2015 race season has only just begun and already we are into double figures with victories. Things look very promising, especially as many of our top riders are still to ride their first event of the season.”
