Ladies RLC Road Cycling

The Ladies RLC Road Cycling team are ending 2018 on a high note.

On Weds 26 Sep the team took home the Williams Cup at Bovington Camp, a new two-stage inter-corps team time trial and road race.

Congratulations to The RLC team of Capt Sue Chittock, Capt Michelle Debono-Evans, Lt Hannah Kirkham, Lt Eve Newton and LCpl Steph Chou.

A disappointing turnout by the other corps meant that The RLC was the only corps to field a complete team, however, this afforded an opportunity for the novice riders to get some valuable training in.

The team then finished in second place behind the Army Medical Services team at the Inter Corps
Championships the following week.

The 2018 season highlights for the team include: Army Champion ‘
Pte Charmain Porter; winner, Women’s Vet Army Cycling Road ‘ Capt Michelle
Debono-Evans. The Williams Trophy 2nd place ‘ Army Cycling Road Race Series; 2nd Place ‘
Inter Corps Championships.

Going forward, the team needs more junior RLC ladies to become involved. If you are interested in joining the Ladies RLC Road Cycling Team contact Capt Debono-Evans at: michelle.debono-evans467@mod.gov.uk

Congratulations to RLC soldier LCpl Stu Elvin of the Mission Training and Mobilisation Centre (MTMC), Bassingbourn Barracks, who has received two bronze medals at the World Rowing Indoor Championships 2021. LCpl Elvin has represented the Army in rowing for a number of years. Having individually qualified at the British Championships for the Men's (age 30-39) 500m to race at the World Championships, he was also selected to represent the Armed Forces in the Men's Team race. The races took place on 23 Feb 21, where LCpl achieved third place in his individual race and an hour later, he received another bronze medal as he played an integral part of the Armed Forces Men's Team. His commitment and success in rowing is nothing short of impressive with his ability to balance work, training and family life along with the ongoing restrictions of COVID-19. Competing in any sport at this level requires a unique strength and determination – something which the LCpl displays in abundance, putting in hours of solitary training, where he has had to use his mental resilience to push himself further than most would. ...
