Last Wednesday was the annual Guildford Town Centre Criterium, an exciting race on the closed, partially cobbled, roads in the centre of Guildford. PPYCC was represented by Adam Churchill and Luca Stone in the U16’s, and Josh Ballinger and Rahul in the U14’s. It was a hot and close evening, making the effort by the riders all the more impressive. The U16 and U14 boys and girls raced together, allowing riders to match themselves against other age groups.

Luca and Adam, after staying at the head of the race for the entire time, made impressive sprints up the cobbled hill to the finish line, coming 4th and 5th respectively in the U16’s. Rahul finished in a small group of leading U14’s, coming 2nd, with Josh riding stongly throughout coming in close behind.
