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.
