Fanfare for the KOMmon man

full of beans
Restless Rich. We don't actually call him that, but it wouldn't be entirely inappropriate. He's not only one of the quickest on the team, he's also someone who likes to light up a race. Never afraid to try and attack; sometimes his efforts succeed, sometimes they fail, but the question is, what would you class as a failure? Sitting in and waiting for the bunch sprint only to get blocked in and lose any training value? Or smash out some power work and give it a try?

Adding to the restless moniker, he was apparently awake at 5am yesterday, preoccupying himself [as you do] with the hubs on his deep section race wheels. Straying from the raceday manual, he elected to treat his insomnia with an impromptu rebuild. Done and dusted by 7. Well, every little helps.

So, Richard Wood did what he often does at the Wellingborough Cycles Road Race yesterday morning. An E123 race with the likes of CC Luton and Spirit Racing in attendance is never going to be a walk in the park, but Richard went with several early moves and in doing so, gathered up some points in the King of the Mountains competition. In fact, he took more than anyone else, which netted him a rather substantial box of High Energy Jelly Beans.

Nice work - with those in his back pocket, he's going to pretty handy for future training runs.
