Below is a summary and catch up of the results for the past 3 weeks including an updated Handicap Table.
There have been some notable rides during this period. Nic Pillinger went sub 25 minutes for the first time and then improved on that time. Hugh Walton is in excellent form with 3 consecutive PBs and Craig MacDonald is not far behind with two consecutive PBs.Read more...
Sunday saw the third event in the local interclub competition, a 25 mile event hosted by Ashwell CC and held over two lap and a bit laps of the testing Guilden Morden course.
With St Neots sitting third in the table and Beds Road CC in our sights we hoped to take advantage of any slip ups . Conditions suggested a helpful tailwind on the outward leg leading to the inevitable headwind on the return and it proved right, though the hedgerows offered some shelter.Read more...
9th July 2017, Woodstock-Tackley course
This is a rolling 11km course with 2 short, sharp climbs and a couple of fast descents. It got feisty early on, which kept the commissaire busy because race-cars had to be repeatedly re-positioned in the convoy, often on single track, twisting road.
I started pretty well, keeping comfortably in the front half through the neutralised section and into the race. Towards the end of lap 1 the mood in the bunch changed, which seemed early for a serious attack, but I moved up anyway, knowing there were some very strong 2nd cats onboard.Read more...
Correction to tables below: Thanks to Mark for spotting my mistakes from the TT results from last week, the following times were sent over incorrectly, although were correct on the night:
Dave Salmon should be: 31:55, moving him down below Geoff, Simon and Dave Wilson; and Dave Lindsay should be: 26:33.
It was a gorgeous night for the 23 riders that came out to put themselves through the fun/agony of the 11.2 mile TT course. It was nice to see Robin and Lynette who joined us for the first time this season, and it was good to see Ruth back after her knee op.Read more...
Only 18 riders this evening to take on the 11.2 mile SNCC TT course and some excellent performances led by Sam McDonald who took 43 seconds from his PB to go sub 26 minutes for the first time.
There were 4 riders under 26 minutes this evening with Ian Turner just edging the fastest time against the old warrior Richard Hancock with Nic Pillinger not far behind the first two.Read more...
