9th April 2016 – Screenteck International Jnr Tour Of the Mendips. - Somerset


Overall GC - Tim Jones 7th, Grant Martin 10th John McLeod 52nd.


All boys rode strongly over the 2 days which incorporated a climb into Cheddar Gorge. Tim, who managed to bridge to the leading group in Stage 1 put himself well in contention for GC finishing 5th at the end of Stage1. Grant also wins the points jersey after winning two sprints again in Stage 1. Unfortunately,  John  got caught behind a crash which held up his race making it difficult to regain any time. Weather played havoc with the field with many failing to finish due to the extreme cold. All three boys held up well on Stage 2 but unfortunately for Tim, was unable to capitalize on the previous days racing. A great effort by all three boys.

I knew before the race started that I would need to be in the top twenty riders the whole race to survive and that is just what I did. The race was rapid from the start and everyone fighting for positions. Over the first few hills I was feeling strong and confident as the race was getting stretched out in the cross winds and over each hill. It was on the Ouude Kwaremont that the race blew to bits and sadly I just missed the front group. As the race continued we shelled more riders out the back and it was a small group sprint for 7th to 14th.I picked up 12th. Brilliant experience and one I will never forget. Thank you to the team sponsors. (Report by Grant Martin)

A win for Ross McMurtie in his first race for Spokes RT...well done Ross.

30th January 2016 - Velo 29 Series , Croft Racing Circuit - North Yorkshire.


Joe Reilly was the only Spokes Racing Team representative in what was his first race of the year.

It was a tough race due to high winds. Joe was involved in an early break that didn’t stay clear.

Another group of 4 riders managed to break the hold of the Peloton. Unfortunately for Joe he was feeding and recovering at the time this break made its move. A well timed sprint leaving his move to the last possible moment due to head wind gave Joe the bunch sprint and 5th overall. A great 1st outing as a junior for Joe in a E/1/2/3 event.

Joe Reilly - Sprinting towards the finish.
