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.

Lewis was amazing and made everything really easy to understand made sure I was happy with everything we discussed before we moved onto payment terms and told me all about what I need to do next
They were informative and patient to answer any questions I had at any time.
Knowledgeable and friendly staff who can't do enough for you. Excellent easy to study course, would definitely recommend.
Really happy that I found the Training Room and now that I have signed up through the help and support from Laura, on the back of the first time we spoke about the course and the company. I knew that it was the right choice for me through instinct. Really looking forward to studying the course and working with my tutor Liz who also made my introduction onto the course so smooth so far. Results, results, results. Lets chase them step by step.
Great to be onboard, lets see how the journey goes.
Ria helped answer all my questions, and offered to put them in writing as there was a lot of info. Not pushy with the sale and allowed me to talk with my partner and didn't push for an answer there and then, so organised a call back the next day. Everything has run smoothly and I can't wait to begin to the course!
The experience was really easy, and everyone has been very helpful.

Adam was very informative of the whole course and answered by queries very comprehensively. Above all he was not pushy about the course.
Training room service is efficient and the people at the other end of the phone helpful and friendly. All the information is thoroughly explained with clarity giving complete confidence. They are easily contactable through email and will return calls when asked too.
From the serviced I've received so far I am inclined to continue my own development with them and sign onto my level 4 after I I pass my level 2 and 3
Exceptional customer service. After being behind both Amanda and Luke took time out of their days to make sure that I was on top of things and and knew what I was doing. I was super grateful of and they really went above and beyond to make sure everything was sorted.
The service so far as been super amazing. Luis and Shawn provided me with all the information I needed to start my course. I am really excited about it. My tutor Claire has already reached out to me and said she is there for me. The service is just wonderful.
