Balham CC in Cat 3 Crit for first time

Balham CC member James Buchanan came a creditable 17th out of 51 yesterday (Saturday February 8th) marking his and Balham CC’s first venture into Category 3 racing.

Taking part in the Full Gas Winter Series Criterium at Lee Valley VeloPark it followed his first win at the same venue at Cat 4 on October 19th last year. This was also Balham CC’s first victory.

A Balham trio including James had raced in a Criterium in September 2019 marking the first time the club had entered a competitive event since its relaunch in 2017.

Two weeks on and we’re pleased to report James came 7th in his next ride and so claiming the first points for a BCC rider in a Cat 3 race.
