Rhys Howels's has picked up enough British Cycling racing points already this season to gain his second category license. He's done this by braving the weather and getting stuck into the winter series races over at Hog Hill. Notable scores were a 2nd and a 1st place win. Full results and more pictures can be found here.Big Rhys will be using his serious power output to target open individual time trial events this year.
