Blackburn Cycling Club hosted a Women’s Criterium on Saturday afternoon at Casey Fields, the first of what we hope will be a regular feature.

A field of eleven women competed, three of them SKCC. Jodie Batchelor from the SKCC Giant Women’s Race team, Grace Phang from the SKCC Women’s Development squad and Amy Bradley.  Jodie took 3rd place with Grace and Amy (one of the peloton’s hardest workers), close behind.

Looks like the clash with SKCC’s Peloton Ball and the inevitable hair appointments affected the SKCC representation this time around – however there will be another chance to compete on Saturday, 17th September.
