We are now approaching cycling’s transition part of the year, the bit between Road Racing/ TT and cyclo cross, so , on our next club session ( Tuesday 2nd Sept)we will be Cyclo Cross Training.
Bring the appropriate machine for the session .
Session Starts at 6;30and finishes at 7;30
Only Two 10′s left to ride, 28th Aug starting at 19;00 & 4th Sept starting at 18;30 on the Shelton Course.
The League winner this year must come from one of only four riders, with a span of only 11points (67 to 78 points) between the four. The outsider of the four must be Sarah Burke with 67pts, Sarah is the first lady to be in the mix for a generation.
The Club Hill Climb Championship will be run on the dreaded Terrace Hill course again. Immortalised by Simon Warren book as “Terrace Hill best satisfies the criteria for a great climb”. Only 2 minutes plus riding will give the winners status the trophy and sore legs as well as breathing difficulties for the rest of the day. Good Luck.
Up for grabs are:- Senior Champion, Junior Champion, Vets Champion and Ladies Champion
Hill Climb will take place on Sunday 7th Sept Start 10;00
2-up Ten Results
Five hardy teams took to the road on Thursday for the last 2-up Time Trial of the season. The conditions were far from perfect with the temperature showing a marked reduction giving riders little scope for fast times.
Two father & son teams competed, Ivan & Finlay Bass recorded 36;02 just 2 weeks after Finlay’s 9th Birthday, an outstanding performance for the team. The Team Stokes of Paul & Harry completed the course in 30;33. That time was a substantial improvement for both riders (as individuals). Well done to both teams on outstanding rides.
