Welland Valley Cycling Club

N&DCA 18.7 mile TT Saturday 11th April.

Just a reminder that the Northampton & District Cycling Association time trial series kicks off in just over two weeks on Saturday 11th April. This is a great and locally accessible short/middle distance TT series, on varied and interesting sporting courses. Providing a challenge for local (affiliated) clubs for a season long championship, also open to visiting riders – often very good!  Great for all ages and experience, for a step up from club TT’s to open events and being part of a series and wider family of clubs.
 
 
Round one is on 1&3/4laps of our little sporting circuit at Middleton (Rockingham Forest Wheelers territory) starting just below Bringhurst hill, to complete one full lap through the start and finish on entering Middleton on the second lap and close to the Wheelers’ Clubhouse for excellent refreshments, cakes and post race analysis.
 
Official closing date 31st March - might hold open a few days over this.
 
Come on what have you been training for?

Wow ... lots to catch up on

Racing Round Up

NCRA – Louis Killworth rode strongly to finish 2nd in the Round 3 of the NCRA series at Keysoe. Starting in the last group on the road he worked well with more experienced riders as they reeled in the early starters. With less than 2 miles to go teammate Hans van Nierop made a great bid for victory but was caught with less than a mile to go setting up a gallop for the finish line. Louis was backed up by Rob Moore in 8th place.  In the pack was Hans van Nierop, Mike Smith, Nick Horder, Mark Traynor, Stuart Dawkins and Vic Barnett.

LVRC Pinvin RR - Phil Rayner contested the Bush Care Pinvin Road Race near Pershore, Worcestershire.
On a chilly windswept course Phil rode an aggressive 40 mile race constantly slipping into breaks or going it alone. It ended up in a mass bunch sprint with Phil proving his fitness is going in the right direction by grabbing an excellent third place.

Milton Keynes Bowl - Amy and Matt Garner raced at Milton Keynes. In the under 12’s race Matt sprinted to an excellent  second place while Amy tried on many occasions to escape in the youth girls race but had to settle for 5th.

EMRRL Rd1 – James Moore and Michael Burke contested the first race of the East Midlands Road Race League series. A rolling course with a tough climb at the end it was going to produce a tough battle. Michael made several attempts to get away but a break of six was finally allowed to stick just after halfway into the race. However the hill was the making of it and left only two survivors to take the top two placings. The main bunch was able to contest the final places having caught the back of the break, allowing Michael to finish 9th and James in the bunch after 50 miles racing.  

Two Counties RR – James Garratt had to stop twice as he raced in the west midlands classic based around Bridgenorth. A strong ride saw the Welland Valley junior finish in the bunch frustrated that a damaged rear wheel hampered his performance.  

Victoria Park Circuit racing – Fay Garner produced the best ride of the day as an excellent squad of Whizz Kids travelled to Victoria Park, Leamington.  On a great racing circuit in the heart of the towns park the frenetic youth racing saw lots of competitive action across the age groups. Fay had missed the previous days racing due to illness but was soon back to normal self as she sprinted to second in the Under 10’s girls race. Rudy Killworth was 8th in the Under 10’s boys race after attacking and going clear in the final stages as he tried to bridge across the front boys contesting the top placings. Back in the second pack was Huw Wilson, he to tried to escape from the pack but ended up relying on his sprint to finish 11th. Brooke Traynor is making great progress after suffering a broken leg during the winter. In the Under 8’s girls race the young lady rode a well measured race to finish 20th. Matt Garner and Kian Traynor rode the under 12’s race, the oval course produced some extremely fast lap times as the boys battled to stay in the wheels. Matt finished in the leading pack in 6th place, Kian was in the second pack, 26th. Both rode well and learned some valuable racing skills.  

Mud, Sweat & Gears MTB – The latest round of the Eastern MTB series was held at Carver Barracks.     Although the course lacked any hills the airfield was surrounded by woods within which there was a network of single-tracks, ditches and the odd Tank mound!  Furthermore, added were log drop-offs and rock features to keep the riders you their toes. Jade Mobbs loved the technical course winning the Junior girls class, Louis Jakobson showed great form by finishing 4th Youth, Sarah Vigrow 3rd Female veteran and Jake Jakobson was 33rd Veteran  proving a great day for the knobbly tyre team.

Nutcraker MTB – Ria Mobbs travelled to Cumbria, Whinlatter  to contest the Series opener  in the Lake District National Park in the UK’s only mountain forest – Whinlatter.

Being the UK’s only mountain forest, it’s hard as the course either went up or down. The descents made even trickier as the riders traversed slate beds. Ria rode a great race using her technical descending skills to finish a highly rewarding 4th Junior female.

Battle on the Beach – Whizz Kids Eloise and Luke Perry rode the Under 12’s race on Pembury beach. The Welsh air fueled the youngsters as they race well to finish a short child friendly sandy course.

 17th Betty Pharoah Memorial Legstretcher Race. – George Atkins One Pro Cycling finished 3rd after 67 rolling miles near Cardiff.
