In the British Cycling Category 3 and 4 race, Roland started the season with a bang with second-place finish.

Matt finished comfortably in the peloton in the British Cycling Category E,1,2 & 3 race.

Both riders are aiming to rise up the road racing ranks this year by obtaining their Category 2 British Cycling Race Licence.
