Last week saw the Bourne Bullets weekly coaching sessions come to an end for the year, although the monthly group ride sessions around Bourne Woods will continue throughout the year.
The youth section has 40 members, an increase on last years membership and have held 23 coaching sessions throughout the year, with an average of 23 riders taking part in each session.
Throughout the year the Bullets have fielded teams in local and National events with a high level of success. The team have dominated the Lincs Cyclo-Cross League again this year, not only in results but in the number of competitors, and having participated in road racing events for the first time this year, have also placed highly in the local events, with their top road rider of the year, Sian Botteley, gaining selection for the East Midlands Divivion in the Inter Regional Championships in Scotland.
Time trialling wise, the older riders have raced regularly in the club 10 series, beating the senior riders in the club on many occassions, with them all recording one personnel best after another. The team will be looking to continue their progress this coming year when they aim to field a team in the National School 10 mile event.
The prize winners for the year were Tim James (Points), Adam Botteley (Attendance Trophy), Dan Burton (Quickest rider over the National Skills Course) and Maddie Gammons (Brewster Cup, for the most improved rider)
