On a windy and cold Sunday morning, Charles Rees, Simon Barfoot and Vince Hounsome represented the Gillingham Wheelers in the Omega road race series on the closed circuit at Thruxton.  The 25 mile 4th Cat race saw a field of 60 riders hemmed in by the strong winds on the exposed circuit preventing the development of any successful breakaways and leading to an exciting bunch finish dominated by the sprinters in which Charles Rees gained a very respectable and personal best 12th place with Simon Barfoot coming in 26th  and Vince Hounsome in 39th.  Plans are being made (mainly by Charles) for the Wheelers to put together a Mark Cavendish style lead-out train to get Charles in to the top 10 and points next Sunday
