Welland Valley Cycling Club

Smith quickest ahead of Foskett

Sting in the tail

Not even a fall could stop Tim Smith from featuring in the results in the latest round of the N&DCA time trial series.
The 19 mile challenge starting from Litchborough was made even more challenging as wet conditions made the corners extremely slippery. It was on one of the corners time found himself taking to the grass verge and falling into a bed of stinging nettles.

He wasted no time and with his adrenalining pumping he recorded a time of 45 minutes 25 seconds to finish 8th.

Matt Plews also commented he felt his wheels move sideways on one of the many corners, Matt set a time of 47:16.

The fastest rider was James Gelsthorpe - Peterborough CC - 42.47.

Burke in the mix

Michael Burke secured impressive results over the weekend in totally contrasting events.

On Saturday evening the Welland Valley rider dusted down his track bike and took to the boards in the Olympic Velodrome in London to contest the 'Full Gas' Track meet. In a series of events Michael managed to pick up 5th in the first scratch race and a top 10 in the elimination after getting boxed in on the inside. In the last race of the night Burke contested a 50 lap points race, during the laps he scored in the first 2 sprints, constantly in the mix he was just piped for points in the fourth sprint but managed to secure a top 10 placing.

After a long drive home and power nap Michael was back on the start line less than 12hrs after he stepped of the track to ride an 80 mile road race. 

In a good quality field the 80 mile challenge was based in the Welland Valley and featured numerous ascents of 'Devils Staircase', a local notoriuos climb near Great Easton.

With riders constantly attacking the bunch Michael sat safely in the bunch still recovering the from the previous nights racing. As the miles clicked by Michael started to feel OKish as his fitness and hard training was starting to pay off. In the last few laps a one rider escaped the bunch so the bunch contested the sprint for 2nd place.

The finishline was situated at the top of the climb and Burke used all his strength to sprint to a fantastic 7th place.
