BWA West Midlands Cyclo Cross League

‪#‎crossiscoming‬ 
The BWA West Midlands Cyclo Cross League is now open for registration.

https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/club/profile?club_id=3727

As a previously registered rider this is advance notice that registration is now open at the above link on the British Cycling BWA West Midlands Cyclo Cross Page.

Registration will close on the 21st August 2016 or as soon as the safe circuit limit of 160 + 20% contingency per combined category race is reached. We will ensure that individual categories are split fairly across genders and ages. We will keep you up to date with registration progress via the Facebook and Twitter Social Media channels and the BWA WMCCL League website. 
Details of Facebook, Twitter and Website are all available at the above link.

As 2015 - 2016 there will be no additions for whatever reason after the closing date of 21st August. This is to allow the committee and Blacksheep Sports two weeks to prepare and print sign on sheets and prepare the chip timing system.

We have more events and different venues in what looks to be a great season ahead and we look forward to seeing you all in 2016 - 2017.

Kind regards

Dave Mellor
Chair BWA WMCCL

 

Talbot stars in Austria

Welland Valley CC member Helen Talbot has been working hard not just topping up her endurance but also her cornering skills on a bike as she looked for marginal gains. 
If this wasn’t enough, Helen then backed this up with running and swimming before she went into last weekend’s Ironman Austria. 
In warm conditions Helen was contesting the age category 40 to 44 years old. After completing the 3.9km swim in 1hr 6mins 23 seconds she exited the water in 5th place. After a quick transition and onto the bike for 180.km rolling Austria roads Helen consolidated her position in 5th place. After 6 hours 44 mins Helen pulled on her trainers to start reeling in the opposition. With every stride Helen could sense a podium spot was on the cards in her age group. 
Into the final kilometres Helen could see second place in her sights but ran out of distance to finish a superb 3rd. 
A superb run in 3hrs 32 minutes 51 seconds produced a combined time of 10hrs 22 minutes 29 seconds. 
The top 3 were:
Steinscherer, Sabine 10:19:19
Power, Anne Marie 10:22:05
Talbot, Helen 10:22:29

Helen was 18th female overall in a field contested professional triathletes. Her 3rd place in the age group also secured a place in the World Championships in Hawaii at the start of October.

28/6 - Dank TT

Club 10 Mile TT Results - In dank miserable wet conditions 15 brave riders contested this evenings 10 mile challenge from Kibworth. Once again fastest Welland rider was Myles Foskett, who recently celebrated his 18th birthday, recorded 22:13. Matt Plews was second WV rider with 22:39. There was two new 'come and try' riders - Julian Twynham (24:40) and Harry Hughes (28:53). Both rode well on a tough night. Fastest rider was guest Darren Bigmore, Glendene CC, with 22:01.

Rayner is back

Phil Rayner narrowly missed a rewarding victory after returning from a shoulder injury. The former GB international had to settle for second in the NCRA event near Sawtry. Phil was joined by Hans van Nierop in the 60 mile road race on a rolling course.  

The long drag to the finish on Alconbury Hill requires the riders to time their effort to perfection. Both Phil and Hans rode intelligently with Phil just being piped to the finish line by James Woodfield – University of Nottingham with Hans also in the mix in 9th.    

Linda Hubbard and Matt Plews rode the latest round of the N&DCA time-trial series starting from Old, Northamptonshire. The 20 mile event was held in torrid wet conditions. Matt recorded 50:04 and Linda 56:02. The fastest was Felix Barker, Cambridge CC, 44 minutes 45 seconds.
