Tollers Ladies Cyclist League Announce The Winners
Tollers employ a number of keen cyclists who cycle into work, manage club runs, participate in charity rides, sportives and one Associate, Brian Guest, has recently competed at international level in the UCI Amateur World Championships in Denmark
They also sponsor Kettering Cycling Club’s ladies league where participants compete in selected time trials over the course of the season. This year has seen an increase in the number of ladies joining the club and participating in the league competition.
Their enthusiasm for their cycling has also encouraged the “pink ladies” to start a ladies only club run every Monday evening as well as joining the mixed club run on Sunday mornings
This year’s winner of Tollers Ladies League is Gemma Royles who narrowly missed out on the top spot last year.
Gemma made a strong start in the early league races but suffered the setback of hip and back problems midway through the season. By conserving herself for her racing Gemma competed in the remaining races and held off challenges from Sue Rust and last year’s Tollers Ladies League winner Jen Moffat who both tied for second place
Gemma said “I was gutted I lost last year due to missing an event so I was determined to win it this year”.
Gemma looks forward to proudly wearing the coveted Tollers Ladies League winner’s jersey in competition next year and competing against increasingly stiff opposition
In addition to the winner’s jersey Gemma wins the handmade trophy and £50 of M&S vouchers
Also receiving vouchers are Sue Rust, Jen Moffat, Maria Gent and Sian Edwards
The final league standings are;
1. Gemma Royles
2. (Tied) Sue Rust & Jennifer Moffat
