Sian boosts Wheelers

BOURNE Wheelers’ racing season is due to begin this weekend when the club holds its annual 23 mile Hardriders Time Trial on the demanding Essendine circuit.

The club has been boosted on the eve of the new season with the announcement that Sian Botteley has been selected to represent the East Midlands in the Sainsburys UK School Games in May.

This three day festival of racing incorporates the Inter-Regional Road Championships for the first two days, followed by a day’s racing at the Olympic Velodrome at Stratford.

Last weekend the Wheelers held their prize presentation evening for the 2011 season. Guest speaker was Mike Shattock, who received a cheque for £650 from the club towards his Yellow Beetle Challenge.
