South West Women's Race League
The South West Women’s Race League is an exciting addition to racing in the region in 2013. Elena Bremer, the driving force behind the league says……. “The League is intended to both provide a better racing environment for the more experienced women, as well as to ease the transition from club rider to racers for novices. The league is based on the tried and tested model used by the London Women's Cycle Racing league for the last few years, using a mix of road races, time trials, crits and circuit races to make up a league of varied and exciting events with something to suit everybody! The hope is that this mix of disciplines will encourage women out of their comfort zone and into events that they might otherwise not attend- this will increase field sizes improve racing for all.
The first event to put in the diary is the Newquay Velo road race on the 14th April. Further events will be added to the series, including time trials and at least one more road race. Check out the groups facebook page
