Welland Valley Cycling Club

British Summer Time, you must be joking!

As you would expect the weekend British Summer time is upon us the weather is vile as strong winds and horrendous rain batter the region. 
Undeterred Welland Valley members rolled out and pinned on a number to race in bunches on and off road or as an individual in the race of truth against the stop watch. 
Rudy Killworth and Huw Wilson got the weekend off to flying start as the young Whizz Kids contested events at Curborough. Rudy stormed to victory, backed by Huw in the third as they dominated the Under 10’s Handicapped race, earlier they finished 11th and 15th in the scratch race. 
Matt Plews is clearly in form as he powered over 10 miles in 23:45 to win the Ratae RC Club time-trail at Gilmorton. 
North of Leicester, Steve Welch was the solo member riding the Coalville Whs 10. The race was won by multi distance champion Matt Botterill (www.drag2zero.com) in 20.22. Steve rode well recording 26:30. 
In the latest round of the NCRA 30 mile handicapped bunch races the early pacesetters stayed away from the scratch group. Welland Valley riders were still denied a victory as Ben Hardy (Rutland Roulers) sprinted to victory from a decimated bunch at Old. Best Welland rider was Rob Moore in third just ahead of teammate Hans van Nierop fifth. 
Louis Jakobson, Sarah Vigrow, Vic Barnett, Jade and Ria Mobbs contested round one of the British Cycling MTB Cross-Country Series at Sherwood Pines, Nottinghamshire. 
As the rain fell Louis faced 3 laps of the forestry commission course in the Juvenile Boys race. The course was a mud fest it would be the bike handlers who would dominate the proceedings. The young Northamptonshire Whizz Kid took everything in his stride to finish a pleasing 28th. 
Experienced campaigner Vic still battles hard as he is one of the eldest competitors in the Over 60’s category. As the conditions worsened Vic would face 2 laps as the mud was making numbers and jerseys indistinguishable. 
The competitors need to ultra-sensitive as the conditions began to dictate with numerous crashes and mechanical retirements. Vic put in a fine performance to finish a good 4th place. 
Jade and Ria Mobbs both unfortunately failed to finish in the Junior ladies event as both suffered a mechanical knocking out of the results. 
Sarah Vigrow raced 24hrs earlier as high winds battered the course in the Open Female event. Sarah once again showed great bike handling skills and determination to finish 7th. 
A quartet of time-trialist travelled to Lincolnshire to ride a stormy 25 miles. Nasty weather, heavy rain and windy, with little shelter and still there was good WVCC performances in testing conditions.
Phil Rayner,59:53, was good enough for 2nd Vet on Standard, Michael Burke ,01:00:32, also saw him in the prizes wining the Long Marker award. 
Jonathan Durnin 01:06:08 and Linda Hubbard 01:09:43 rounded off a great team performance. The winner was Adam Gascoigne (Pedal Power Loughborough) 53:46 recording a new course record.
