The Tornado Road Cycling Club was born in 2013, but open to members from 2014. One question we were asked, was why start another club when there are several around. The answer to that was fairly simple, we wanted a club that was a little more like a family, somewhere to feel like you belonged and the effort you put into your cycling was appreciated.
The Tornado wants to put the fun back into your cycling with club rides and social events and we want to know about member’s efforts, such as sportives and events and what you achieve. We also want to see your photos and share in your success.
As a club we hold weekly club rides, a club 10 Time Trial, hill climb competitions, social events and much more.
The Tornado RCC were at it again on Tuesday 30th May, racing another CAT4 Weymouth Crit. Richard Wyeth claiming a well earned 5th place, having pulled back several attempts by others to break away. One more round to go in Weymouth on 13th June.
The Tornado RCC got their first race win on Saturday 20th May, with Chris Wilson taking a well earned 1st place in the Weymouth Crit (CAT4) race. A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Chris! A second rider, Richard Wyeth came home in 8th place.
Please visit our charity page, where you will find details of what our club and its riders are doing for charity. Any donations are welcome and our club thanks you in advance for any support you offer.
The Tornado Road Cycling Club ran its first Open TT event on 30th April.
We would like to thank all those that entered and came along to support. You can view the results on our website, here.
Our entrants have given us some fantastic feedback, we put on a great event with fantastic marshalling, not to mention the free tea/coffee and cake at the end!
Congratulations to all those who entered. Our course record was broken, as we expected it would be, with a time of 23.13 by Craig Wallington of Sarum Velo.
A BIG THANK YOU to Estrella Bikes who came down to support us and show off their amazing bikes! A local company, it is worth having a look at their bikes and range Salice accessories. Contact Darren or Rob via their website, if you would like to know anymore.
We will be running another Open TT event in October, so mark your diaries!
