MAS Design Consultants are always proud to support local cycling talent. As a keen cyclist himself, Mark Scatchard has sponsored a number of local teams and events over the years. As mentioned in a previous blog, MAS are now proud sponsors of the ‘Fensham Howes - MAS Design’ Junior Cycling Team; made up of four talented, local lads - Sam Watson, Bob Donaldson, Joe Pidcock and James Wordsworth. Mark has also been sponsor of the PH-MAS/Paul Milnes junior team for a number of years.
As cycling events go, Otley Cycle Races has to be one of the most popular and well organised events of the year. This year was no exception - what a fantastic evening. MAS Design and guests enjoyed the luxury of a VIP evening - amazing weather, delicious food, a well-stocked bar and some really impressive cycling talent speeding round the famous Otley town centre circuit.
MAS Design sponsored the boys Youth Race at the event - many of the PH-MAS/Paul Milnes riders performed well in the field of nearly 50 riders. The Chevin Cycles Classic race saw James Wordsworth of ‘Fensham Howes - MAS Design’ achieving 4th place and Joe Pidcock coming in at 15th place. The main event of the evening, the Men’s Elite Race, was a hard fought battle resulting in a photo finish with Tom Pidcock taking 2nd place on the podium. Robert Donaldson of ‘Fensham Howes - MAS Design’ finished in 25th place - well done Bob!
Mark’s guests at the races included Nathan & Claire Varley of ‘Metalcraft Europe’, Neil & Bec Creeney of ‘Almscliffe Properties Ltd.’, Aidy & Clare Fawell of ‘Fawell Building & Landscape Contractors’ and Andy & Angela Cooper of ‘Arena Construction’. A great time was had by all!
