A disappointing turnout tonight but a great safe race with the rain holding off after a showery day in MK, enabling us to use the bigger circuit. Both races won by lone riders off the front with brilliant strong rides by both Gavin Howell in the ABCD race and James Stewart who lapped the field in the EFG race.3 strong ladies riding tonight with Helen (Mim) taking the ladies overall win and 3rd E cat rider tonight.

The Ron Day Memorial MK Bowl races – Race 4 -24th May 2022 (Sponsored by Church Lane Creative)A beautiful sunny and dry evening enabled us to run the race out of the gates tonight for the bigger loop after 30 mins. Another fast race saw a fantastic ride by Gavin Howell and Mike Jackson leaving the ABCD race for a two man break. They stayed away with Gavin leaving Mike for the last two laps taking 1st with Mike 2nd and a fast bunch sprint for 3rd place won by Nigel Byrne.The EFG race stayed mainly together for a bunch sprint seeing Steve Dunton winning with Barry Bonnett taking 2nd and the G cat riders Don Parry and Malcolm Freeman taking a wonderful 3rd and 4th place. The only lady in the EFG event Mim (Helen Taylor-Carter) did a top ride to take 3rd E tonight.Well done to all our winners and a massive thank you to all our valued helpers.If you haven’t helped yet, please message me with a date you can do in the future weeks please.

The Ron Day Memorial MK Bowl races – Race 3 -17th May 2022 (Sponsored by Church Lane Creative)A ‘will it’ ‘won’t it’ rain night but thankfully the heavy rain held off until after the finish. We kept the race inside the bowl tonight, putting safety first. A crash in the ABCD race just over half way through saw 2 riders down and 1 on the grass, hope you both feel better soon and a massive thank you to the great care given from William Nolan our superb first aider.
The ABCD race broke up with 2 away, over 1 minute up for the majority of the race, staying away to take 1st and 2nd with another break going during the last couple of laps to take a staggered 3rd ,4th and 5th with the bunch sprinting for 6th place.The EFG race had a few break away attempts but all came together for a bunch sprint at the end.Great to see everyone and well done to all our winners. Many thanks to all our helpers tonight for setting up and helping out as always making it possible to run these events.
