The cycle racing season has started in earnest in the South West with a number of CS Dynamo riders taking part in early season races and events.

Jamie Fabrizio and Nigel Orpin represented the club in the Blackawton road race on March 25, the day before, Andy Waite rode to third place in the Somerset Road Club 10-mile time trial near Burnham on Sea with a time of 21:38.

Last weekend saw Exeter Wheelers run their annual hilly time trial over Woodbury Common.

A course change due to road resurfacing made for an even tougher race, however CS Dynamo had entered eight riders for the event and secured seventh and eighth overall with Andy Waite and John Nolan respectively.

Elsewhere on the common Steve and Greg Medlock took second place in the team event at the Mud and Sweat MTB Orienteering event.

Further afield at Yeovil, Jamie Fabrizio took an impressive fourth place at the Pittards Road race from a breakaway that formed early in the race.

This coming weekend sees more Dynamos competing in a variety of events including the Mid Devon CC Teign Valley time trial which features four Dynamo riders.

Also in recent weeks Steve Medlock and Andy Stovell have taken part in early Audaxes including the Dunkery Dash and Barrys Bristol Ball Buster of over 200 kilometers.

CS Dynamo will be running a coaching session for riders aged 7-16 years at Darts Farm on April 21.
