Winckworth Sherwood take part in the Allsop Festival of Cycling
Fri 18 Sep 2015
Winckworth Sherwood entered four teams into this year’s Allsop Festival of Cycling, only the second year in which Allsop has run the event, consisting of a series of timed lap races (both individual and team) of Brands Hatch Racing Circuit in Kent.
Our four teams were Gold, Red, Blue and Aero (a greyish light blue!) were comprised of clients and contacts of the firm, headed up by Andrew Bedford, Mark Vinall, Charlie Proddow and James Mackay respectively.
The day started with rain and a meaningful wind, but by the time the racing had truly started, the rain had receded and the sun had arrived, although the wind continued to keep up its efforts for most of the day.
Races included single and multiple laps of the short circuit, a lap of the grand prix circuit and a combination of both circuits, together with a Boris Bike/Brompton Bike relay race in which each member of the team participated.
Despite everyone’s very best efforts, no medals were won for the day, however everyone commented that they had had a fantastic day out and no doubt there were some tired legs amongst the team members that evening.
