Lydia won at the Kirdford circuit in Surrey, but credit also goes to Astrid Wingler who was caught up in a crash during the same race, but re-mounted to finish a creditable 23rd. 

Tracey was competing at the Ticknall circuit in Derbyshire.

The events allow regionally-based riders the chance to show their talent. Unfortunately, there are some regions which do not hold a women’s regional championship, showing the disparity in racing opportunity between men and women - something that Team CTC is determined to tackle."
