Some of our favourite images from the many rides we’ve all done together. Some fantastic memories, and plenty more to come both on Zwift and in the real world once we’re all back together.
Donny Chain Gang
Donny is what locals call Doncaster, especially when talking among themselves. The Donny Chain Gang is a loose association of riders who meet, mainly on Tuesdays and Saturdays. With Covid-19, that’s now Tuesdays and Thursdays, on Zwift.
Nowadays it’s made up of local pros, like Russell and Dean Downing formerly of NFTO, Graham Briggs of Rapha-Condor-JLT and Madison-Genesis’s Tom Stewart, and a whole load of others who are on their way to their level, or dropping down from it. Anyone else who thinks they might be able to hang on long enough to get a good fast workout can join.
Same as it ever was
It’s been like that for, well, forever really. There have always been good racers in this area, like Wayne Randle, John Tanner and before them Tom ‘Ticker’ Mullins and more, and they’ve always done these fast-moving training sessions, right back, in fact, to the days of Tom Simpson.
