Saturday was probably the warmest day of the year so far providing perfect conditions for the first round of the ASSOSLDN Women's League, an event which is now in it's 4th year and thriving.
If it ain't broke don't fix it. That's what they say. So we didn't fix it, we just got more of the good stuff and freshened it up for 2018. Here's the lowdown on what we'll be racing on this year.
Caz has been testing out our new Tifosi Optics frames with a pair of Marzen that have been specially fitted with her prescription which has proved a challenge for glazers in the past on sports frames.
The amateurs playing with the big boys (and girls) of cycling.
All the action and results from the gnarliest cross race of the season.
Jess' first race in a year
We've been trying out some of the new Altura winter accessories recently, and they're great!
Dimi and Henry were back in the mud this weekend at the Leeds Castle round of the London X League.
We've been using this innovative, low-profile helmet throughout 2017 and will continue our partnership with Bell into 2018.
The structured training I’ve been doing all seemed to click in to place for this final race of the season.
We had 4 Thundercats racing at Red Hook Barcelona 2017 with mixed results.

Jess took some great photos of this years Red Hook Crit London, aka Wet Foot Crit.
We love to support our local races and Minet Crit (in the Wild West of Hillingdon) is a great event and a great way to prepare the legs for Red Hook Crit.
This year for the first time there was a separate women's fixed crit at the Rapha Nocturne.
18 months ago I couldn’t even dream of creating an event on this scale, but it’s happened now and who knows what we can create for next year?
Since November I have been following a structured training plan with the guidance of a coach.
Red Hook Crit Milano kicked off somewhat stressfully when we arrived at Luton Airport 10 minutes after the check in desk had closed and missed our flight.
Barcelona has been my favourite Red Hook Crit so far. The weather, the beach, the city, the food, all bloody spectacular.
The main aim this year was to build on the success of the last ThunderTrack by taking lessons learned from that event and ThunderCrit earlier this year.
After the lessons I took away from last years qualifications at London RHC, I knew I had to approach this years qualification session differently.
The appeal of closed roads, a novel and challenging race format and the chance to spend some time in Berlin – a city even cooler than London – sounded like a dream.
Last weekend saw the 10th London Nocturne take place. Not at the regular site of Smithfields but an all new course around the City and St. Paul's.
I've got to admit that I'd been nervous about this day for a long time and after sleepless nights thinking "what have I forgotten?", "what if something goes horribly wrong?" I was happy to get to this day and have it pass.
