Welcome to you all, here's the first newsletter from the Innovation Trek Racing team. We'll be writing to you from time to time to keep you up to date with all things Innovation Racing.
Off we go, the pace has not slowed since the launch on Sunday 12th February, we've been organising races, extra kit for our new addition, planning for 2018, oh and racing too.
Although the team have been racing individually since January, Saturday was the first time we all raced at the same event, well 6 riders out of 7 to be exact.
Saturday was the first time trial of the season, the Nova CC 25 mile two man, time trial(TT), around the J8/13 course (Macclesfield-Congleton). In testing conditions we had great results, George and Alex posting a sub 1hr time, enough to secure 1st Junior team and a 4th place overall. This was an outstanding result to kick off with. Two of our riders had never done a TT before, so to throw them in a 25 mile event was an eye opener, that said they did brilliantly well. Louis Evans just looked so strong and with his team mate Joel Ackers placed 4th Junior. Brandon Fraser-Thomson only got on a TT bike a few days before and put in a huge effort to place 6th junior with his team mate Jack Smith.
Sunday saw our youngest rider Harry Paveley toeing the line at Mossley CRT early bird race, joining Harry was Jack Smith, as if one race in a weekend wasn't enough Jack joined in the fun in the rain. The weather gatecrashed the party, and decimated the field, Harry gave it all, finishing just outside the leading bunch, with that trademark smile, still beaming. Great performance for his first ever race.
The riders are now counting the days down to the next race, and don't have to wait too long. The Manchester 10 mile TT Championships start this Saturday.
We are now the magnificent seven, Jack Smith joins us from Sportscity Velo, and will be our sole representative in the Junior category. Jack brings with him bags of experience, strength and speed, he will be a welcomed addition to Innovation Racing, welcome aboard Jack.

Over the coming months we shall be racing all over the Northwest, from town centre circuit races, to Velodromes and a multitude of TT courses. You are more than welcome to come along and be part of the day, you'd be amazed just how quick they race, it'll be a day to remember.
