Norwood Paragon members helped to organise the first ever 1904RT training weekend - which offered an opportunity for Paragoni to get to know the new recruits and pass on racing knowledge.

In total, 35 riders took part across three different sessions, which were open to Paragoni, 1904RT and Maison du Velo's club members.

Sessions, devised by Marcus Bruton, included a tempo ride followed by skills session on Saturday and an endurance ride on Sunday.

The skills sessions benefited from input from external coach Ian Watson, who offered critique on sprinting form using video footage, and ran a Q+A in the evening.

On Sunday, Austyn Tusler led the women's team ride, instructing riders to attack and chase at key moments whilst Marcus led the men in a through-and-off to ensure they won the hare and hound.

Each session had three groups rolling out, one for the men's team, one for the women's, and a more moderately paced option led by Duncan Murdoch for those not looking for a leg-ripping experience.

Maison du Velo bike shop provided an HQ for the weekend, putting on a pasta buffet at lunch time to keep riders fuelled before the team meal on Saturday evening - which was, as per the entire weekend, open to all Paragon members to enjoy.
