The damp Rascals at this morning’s George Abbot coaching session saw November's Rider of The Month, JoeH, pass on the mantel to BenF, December/Januarys recipient of the award.
BenF has been an every present assistant at coaching with the change to the session set up at the end of last year. This coupled with his dedication and determination at each round of the cyclocross season this winter makes BenF a much deserved winner of the Rider of The Month.
Well done Ben you are a very worthy recipient of the Rascal Rider of The Month
This is an initiative by the coaches to recognise a Rascal each month who exemplifies the spirit of the Charlotteville Rascals.
Each coach nominates a rider based on the following and then they agree on the worthy winner.
Attendance: Turn up come rain or shine to have fun.
Attitude: Enjoy coming to Rascals and actively take part. Listen, question, apply and understand what they want from their cycling.
Technique / Skills Progress: Steady progress of their skills in the techniques they have been coached.
Rascals Development: Take an active role in the Rascals and wanting to assist in the development of themselves and the club. For example with technique demonstrations, laying out courses, clearing up, youth volunteer, mentoring / helping fellow Rascals.
External Rascals Activity: Actively take part in activities outside of Rascals and encourage others to have a go. For example other club go-ride events, cycling with parents or school, cycling proficiency, racing etc
