2016 Midlands XC – Round 1 – Sherwood Pines
A great start to the season for one of our riders, William Gascoyne.
Will took First Place in the Junior Mens Race. His race report is below:
I was second off the line and soon moved into 1st place with Cameron Orr on my wheel, we worked together and put a large gap into to the rest off the field with in the first lap.
I tried to make a move half way through the second lap but over cooked a corner and crashed, Cameron went down in the same place and we were back together again.
I got away from him when he slipped his chain and I capitalised on my lead to take the win by over 4 minutes.
I really enjoyed the event, and hope I can replicate my performance at Whinlatter this weekend in the lake district.

Cyclocross National Championships

William Gascoyne – Third Place on the podium – Junior Men.
Riding for Sherwood Pines Cycles – Felt – Enve
Despite being on the front row I got a poor start with a slip on the first run up and a collision causing mechanical problems just after that.
This left me about ten seconds behind last place! Knowing I had a lot of work to do I composed myself and set about making up some places.
Within a lap I was in third place and I was battling for second with the leader in my sights. However the effort to fight my way back had taken its toll and I made a couple of mistakes in the running which allowed 2nd place to slip away. After that I slowed a bit but managed to hang on to third.
Both David Fletcher and William Gascoyne (Sherwood Pines Cycles – Felt – Enve) have been selected to race for the GREAT BRITAIN CYCLING TEAM FOR 2016 UCI CYCLO-CROSS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS.

William Gascoyne – one of the rising stars of cycling.
The phrase rising star is often used too freely, we know that it is true when it comes to Will.
William competed at the British Cycling National Trophy Series Round Five at Peel Park, Bradford on Sunday 13th December 2015. He finished second in his age category, Junior Male.
Below is a race report written by Will:
I wasn’t expecting anything special at Bradford as it was off the back of a hard days training camp on the Saturday where I had been battling the elements at a trail centre in Sheffield.
When I got into the race however I found I was feeling pretty good.
I worked my way up to the second placed rider with in the first few laps. I felt we were pretty evenly matched, I was making small gaps on him on the descents but he kept coming back on the running.
In the final lap I managed to get away held it to finish second.
