The two-time South of England Cyclo-cross champion chatted to me on the back of her 56th place finish in the Tour De La Feminin in the Czech Republic.

Tamina says that the assistance provided in their first year of racing by the cycling charity CTC is part of what convinced her to join the Green Team at the start of 2013.

For Oliver, the ethos behind the formation of the team was another part of her decision to race for CTC.

One of the reasons for Team CTC being set up was to help promote women’s cycling, which is something I wholeheartedly support. Racing with them is a way for me to help encourage participation in cycling through actions and not just words."

Team CTC put in best performance of JHTGP series campaign in Woking

In a race that saw staff from the CTC national office in Guildford cheering them on, Team CTC's trio of Lydia Boylan, Tamina Oliver and Astrid Wingler gave their all to send the crowd home happy as the Johnson Health Tech Series made its way to Woking for the fourth round on Tuesday afternoon.

On a tight circuit that had seen rainfall earlier in the day, the green team pushed the front-runners all the way from lap one with Oliver leading from the front for a number of laps in the race, stretching the distance between the leading pack and the rest of the field.
And as the riders came across the finish line, both Oliver and Boylan were amongst the lead pack, gaining their highest positions so far in the series, as well as earning Team CTC 19 points on the day, taking the team's total tally to 30 points.

Unfortunately, Hannah Payton, Team CTC's third rider had a puncture on the first lap, and on a course with two serious climbs was never going to be able to get back into contention.

All three finished looking strong but tested."

Steve Bailey, Team CTC Manager

The team notched up more valuable points for the overall team competition.
