RACE REPORT 21ST MARCH 2016

Over the last two Saturdays Coalville Wheelers have held early season 10 mile time trials around the Breedon on the Hill circuit (A10/34) which were open to club and guest riders.   Wheelers own Mark Cooper was fastest rider in the first event recording 23.41 for first place with Wheelers James Flahey second in 23.57.  In third place was guest rider Adam Huells of V.C. Long Eaton in 24.21. Wheelers also filled the next three places with Mark Brighty fourth in 26.15, Ashley Long fifth in 26.33 and Tony Picance sixth in 27.27.  Other Wheelers times were John Shaw 27.58, Nev Bray 28.21 and  Mark Morgan 28.27.  Next came the fastest lady on the day, Ellie Cooper, in 29.01.  Greg Hodges finished in 30.01, Andy Leach in 31.00 and Bev Morgan in 37.34.

On the same day Wheelers second claim rider Gareth Pymm, racing for Team Bottrill, competed in the A5 Rangers Hilly 34  mile time trial at Towcester and came home in seventh place with a time of 1. 29.12.  His Team Bottrill colleague, James Perkins came third in 1.22.38 and with their combined times they took first team prize.

The second ten mile event on Saturday was dominated by guest riders who filled the first three places.  Sean Vincent (Team Bottrill) came home in a very quick time for the circuit, 22.47, a personal best for the course, to take first place.  Second was Will Cowen (Kings Cliff) in 23.24 and third Kurt Hatwell (RMCC) in 23.57.

    FAMILY FUN DAYS – 25TH JUNE & 23RD JULY 2017
    A brand new purpose built cycle circuit is nearing completion at New College, New Parks, near Leicester. It's one km round with changing rooms, toilets and weekend cafe within the adjacent college buildings. Plenty of parking as well.

    We've booked the circuit to give it a try on Sunday afternoons 25th June and 23rd July from 2pm until 4pm. So chance to race/ride in the morning, wash the car, cut the grass… and then bring your kids / grandkids to the circuit in the afternoon. (Any age, provided they are able to ride their bike safely). Or just bring yourself. Why not bring a picnic, drinks and sun cream, as good weather has also been ordered!

    The current plan is to initially let everyone ride round the circuit to get familiar with it, then to alternate between some mini races / skills tests for the kids and whilst they get their breath back, allow the adults the tear into each other with events like the devil take the hindmost (last rider eliminated each lap), points and scratch races. Maybe even a team pursuit. A good chance to try out bunch riding. All just for fun with no prizes and no race licenses needed.

    Names and £5 per family per day or £3 per individual to Alan Vallance or Tracy Symonds. Payment preferred by BACS, message me if you don't have the account details. Or just hand over the cash when you see us! Priority to club members - first or second claim.

    Should be a fun afternoon for everyone, so please support this new event and let's make it a success.

    I saw a post on another club page detailing a meeting at the new race circuit at New College, are we as a club aware of it? Could be a unique opportunity? But I think it may want a few of us to go if we are interested?

    The Post: "The New College Road Circuit ( New Parks ), is nearing completion. British Cycling are running a workshop at New College on Monday the 12th of June, 7.00pm -9.00pm, to discuss 'race events' and Clubs using the circuit. They are asking for those who attend to be Club volunteers, being interested in either volunteering for, or in the organisation of circuit racing.
    If any Club member is interested in attending, you will need to book a place."

    I think I'm free to go. Who else would like to attend?
