Sunday 26th Feb saw the traditional season opener for the team, The Gorrick spring series round 1 in Swinley Forest Bracknell in Surrey. Technically it was round 2 but the scheduled previous round had been cancelled due to snow and ice, a scenario not often seen in cycle racing! The day dawned sunny but cool this time .The event is a good opportunity to test the legs and see if all the hard work through the winter has paid off, or what else needs to be done to step it up ready for the bigger races to follow.
The team was somewhat depleted for this event with Mark Chadbourne away competing in a moto cross enduro event, and Ro and Carol Tilley away at a training camp in The Canary Islands. The racing was left to Jon, Stuart and Steve .Jon and Steve would compete in the super veteran catagory while Stu would line up in the super masters race as defined by age. The "super "tag means that racing is a lap longer and somewhat tougher than the standard masters and vets classes and is used by the keen racers to really push themselves early in the season.
The Gorrick team always put on a great race and the course this weekend was no exception, lots of tight twisty single track with the obligatory bomb holes and a couple of short sharp climbs to add to the pain being set within a heavily forested area means trees and therefore tree roots, a love them or hate them feature for the mountain bike racer as they can catch you napping and take your wheels from under you in a split second sending you to the ground in an undignified fashion. The majority of riders favourite section of the course was without a doubt the descent from the highest point on the course which was a series of twisting berms which encouraged you to stay off the brakes and use the walled corners of the turns to propel you towards the bottom ever faster with each lap.
The racing was fast and furious and as ever fiercely contested. All the usual suspects lined up for the start of our races, with national champions present this was going to be no easy start to the race calendar!
Both races got away cleanly and the usual jostling for a good position towards the front ensued, it’s vital to get a good start in Mountain bike racing as once the race enters the tight single track sections over taking opportunities are limited. Once into a rhythm the key is to settle in and for some limit your loses or for others play the strategic game of cat and mouse with your nearest rivals. The usual tussles ensued and old rivalries were revisited but in the end the races played out as follows:
Jon 8th super veterans
Steve 17th super veterans
Stu 11th super masters

Perfect helpful and attentive
I have been very impressed from the very beginning when I saw the advert online. I received information about my Teaching Assistant course very quickly. My tutor was quick to help when required and I’ve had regular contact with my career guide. Everybody is very helpful and professional and I’m really enjoying my course.

Steeve Devine is extremely helpful. Before doing the course I was little bit worried about my age, but Steeve Devine reassured me and encourage me a lots. The way he went through the course with me, it make it sound so easy and give you so much love to do it. I have to say without Steeve help me may be I will still hesitate to do the course. Who ever come across talking to him over the phone are very lucky and 100% they'll get the best advice.
Thank you Steeve Devine for helping me and give me the strength to persuade my dream.

Staff are absolutely brilliant couldn't ask for better customer service. They are straight up with you and extremely polite. Would reccomend to anybody
I had heard good things about TTR before starting my course (L3 Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools) but it could not prepare me for the true level of excellence in the support they have provided so far. It has been, for all intensive purposes, faultless, besides a few typos in the resource documents. But hey nobody's perfect. Regardless, everything you need to aquire the qualification is provided and the support you receive from a professional tutor who has spent time working in the education sector is of great comfort.
A Big shout out to Jo-Ann for her expert personal tuition and insights into life as a TA.
Laura for guiding me through the initial sign up process with true professionalism and finesse.
By the end I'm sure I'll also be thanking Megan in the careers department for helping secure my first placement and eventually full time employment.
Such a pleasure and I would recommend this avenue of learning to anyone wanting to switch careers or just to learn something new with a qualification and job prospect at the finish line.
To all at The Training Room, I salute you!
