Simon’s Update

Simon’s been busy racing at the Darley moor for the last few weekends and has made it to the bunch sprint on both occasions. Certainly look like he’s in the thick of the action in this picture he sent in. Narrowly avoiding the rider hitting the deck. We look forward to hearing more updates from Simon as his season picks up.

Rik’s Unlucky Start

Rik Waddon’s start to the 2013 race season hasn’t been what he’d been hoping for. With his first race of the year at Round 1 of the National Time Trial series cancelled due to the snow and wintery conditions, it was off to Round 2 in Wymeswold Leicestershire. Once again bad luck was to strike again, as Rik punctured with just 3miles to go, and was an innocent spectator as Colin Lynch went on to take the victory from Shaun McKeown and Nicholas Fairfield. The series moves to Swaffham on May 5th for Round 3. Hopefully Rik’s luck improves in Norfolk.

Website Under Construction

As you may of seen recently the website hasn’t been working as it should. Unfortunately when shifting servers the database file was inadvertently deleted, and stupidly there was no back up. So here we are back to square one. Fingers crossed over the next few weeks the site will begin to take shape, and we’ll keep you posted on Para-T’s progress.

 

Thanks for your patience

 

From all involved with Para-T
