The Team descended on the Wasing Estate, near Aldermaston, for the Southern Cross Country Championships. Not only is this a popular course with riders but as the National Championships are to be held here this year it was an opportunity to remind ourselves how the course flows. For once we had a nice sunny day and thoughts turned to sun cream rather that how many layers we needed to put on. We couldn’t help feeling sorry for Jon who relishes hot racing conditions, but has so far raced in wintry downpours and couldn’t race today due to a massive shoulder injury incurred on a track night. The team however was bolstered by Simon Willatts who is over from Australia at the moment. He has been training hard in Australia but mainly geared towards multi day Endurance events in Europe.
The course has no real climbs, just drags and a few short punchy efforts. But as it flows so well there is very little opportunity to take a breather and therefore it’s important to judge your riding. Go into the red too often and it will leave you suffering and losing lots of positions. A few of the very muddy/boggy sessions had been cut, leaving good tracks and fun twisty sections. There were bits to catch you out if you weren’t paying attention, such as thread routes on the corners but equally some fast fun downhill parts that made you smile.
The women in the team set the standard for the day with both Liz and Carol taking wins in their respective classes. Steve came 4th in the Grand Vets race, gaining time in the technical sections to lose out on the drags. Mark, Simon and Ro lined up with a large Vets field. Simon was handicapped by not being gridded and did a fantastic ride to get his way up to 6th. Mark had his normal battle up front and was pleased with his measured ride for 3rd place. Ro is still recovering from illness and maybe shouldn’t have ridden. In true Ro style he refused to give up and came in a creditable 17th. Stu King rode a very strong race against the top Masters in the country. He was up at the front battling hard (despite his pit crew letting him down bottling – apologies from Mark) and managed a great 7th place.

Very friendly and helpful staff who have explained everything regarding the course I am enrolling on. So far it has been a good experience that I have had with the training room.
Great customer service - the friendly and helpful advisor was able to answer my initial queries and talk me through the booking and payment processes. Access to course materials was provided soon after, with communication from the team throughout. I'm enjoying the course so far and would recommend the company to others looking for IT training courses.

Very easy to register and fast contact with an employee, provided career support too.
I thought the whole process was easy to go through and explained great...sammy was a excellent help
At first the price was intimidating but after I realized about all the effort and support that The Training Room is putting into teaching students , I say it is definitely worthed. I just started the first module of a software developer stage and I can tell how well organized and motivating it is and it really makes you to keep going.

TTR couldn't have been more helpful over the phone when I was bombarding them with questions prior to signing on - Sammy Ledden was particularly helpful. Since then my tutor (Hasit Jethwa) has been extremely prompt with marking and general replies, which has made the course very smooth to progress through fast.
Easy to use, book and access.
All the advisors I spoke with were extremely helpful and enthusiastic without being pushy, I didn't feel obligated or forced into registering on the course or anything. They were very informative also, making sure I had all the information I wanted before enrolling.
So quick and efficiant. The best help i could ask for.
