Red Bull Time Laps - LFCC Women's Team
Well done to four of our riders who competed in the Red Bull Time Laps 25 hour race to take 10th place in the women’s team category. A really tough event riding through the night and taking turns as a relay to ride as many laps of Windsor Park as possible. The team of Lucy Crookston, Lucy Sturgess, Anna Bertram and Victoria Kozlowski battled awful weather conditions with heavy rain and 20mph winds but managed to hold onto their top 10 position through the race.
Lucy Sturgess who organised the team entry commented:
‘I’m so proud of the girls for pulling together like we did, it really was a test of weather, lack of sleep, fatigue, endurance and mental strength. There were some real low points, but many highs and It was well worth the effort too! We ride and train together quite frequently already, but nothing could have prepared us fully for this tough event. Never again came to mind during, but somehow were already discussing what we could do better next time! We were really lucky to have team support from Stefan Kozlowski who was there helping throughout every transition and keeping us organised with timings and making sure we had everything we needed. Overall an excellent team performance so were thrilled to come 10th out of 32 women’s teams in a competitive field. Podium next year!’
