The BCC men’s teams did a fantastic job in the Bicester Millennium 9-up Team Time Trial at Silverstone Grand Prix circuit. BCC1 and BCC2 were ranked 16th and 23rd overall with times of 24:55 and 26:16 respectively over 3 laps of the 3.7 mile circuit. This is impressive considering the average age of our riders.
