Eileen Roe wins in Colchester for Team Ibis

Well done Eileen Roe who won the women’s crit at the Johnson Health Tech Grand Prix Series event in Colchester- the women’s circuit races organised by the Tour Series.

She has come back from injury, a broken arm if I remember right. I saw her at a handicap race in Falkirk, with a cast on. She had pedalled over from Fife in pretty rank weather with her Dad on a tandem, just to get some miles in, and support the Leslie Bikes team.

I said to her that I would give her team a mention on the blog and it has taken me a while to get round to it. She rides for Team Ibis, a Scottish-Dutch women’s outfit. The team is backed by Scottish Cycling and provides a proper racing environment for some of our best women riders, with many races in Belgium and Holland.

Jane Barr, 2010 and 2011 Scottish road race champion also rides for the team as does Anne Ewing.
