Congratulations to Anoushka Minale for her well deserved podium place in her category in the 53rd Junior Tour of Assen which concluded yesterday, after six stages, Anoushka was third overall. 

Alongside Anoushka, the CCH contingent was Frank Moore (Junior; 32nd Overall and 8th in the Green Jersey competition ), Sam Bardill (Cat 7; 61st Overall ) and Tom Bardill (Cat 6; 23rd Overall).

Special thanks to Gary from Hub Velo for all the support in getting bikes ready and keeping them race ready. (ex CCH rider Stan Boyd riding for Hub Velo was 77th in Cat 6). The group was also joined by Pedal Power Junior rider Dougal Toms who topped the podium for the Criterium on Tuesday, missing the yellow jersey by 0.07 seconds, eventually finishing 10th overall.

A great time was had by all. Roll on Assen 2018!
