RACE REPORT 28th MARCH 2016

There was a dead heat in the latest Coalville Wheelers event, the Bridget and Bernard Bailey Memorial 10 mile time trial staged on the hilly Breedon on the Hill circuit.  After racing around in wet and windy conditions James Perkins (Team Bottrill) and Carl Dyson (Beeston C.C.) both recorded exactly the same time of 22.14 to take equal first place.  In third place was Jamie Haines of Melton Olympic C.C. who finished in 22.29. Fastest lady on the day was Sally Maitland of Beeston C.C. who finished with a time of 29.07. The prize for the fastest team went to local based club Team Bottrill, comprising of James Perkins in first place, Andrew Lyon in eleventh place (23.58)  and Andrew Knight in seventeenth place (24.49).   Rob Stephenson was the first Coalville Wheeler to finish, he was eighth overall with a time of 23.22.  Other Wheelers times were Lee Nowak 29.38, Andy Leach 29.47, Nev Bray 30.01, John Quimby 30.50 and Trish McPherson 37.39.

On Sunday Coalville Wheelers second claim rider Gareth Pymm, racing for Team Bottrill, competed in the Mid Shropshire Wheelers open 25 mile time trial at Whitchurch.  It was a tough day with brutal cross winds and he finished in eleventh place overall with a time of 57.34.  Team Bottrill also won the team event, their second win of the weekend, with riders in first (Josh Williams 51.20) fourth (George Evans 54.34) and 6th (Aaron Ward 55.44)

Coalville Wheelers next event is a  Wednesday evening 4 mile time trial, the first in the points series,  on 6th April starting  at 6.45 pm from their clubhouse in Griffydam.  All riders welcome, entries taken on the night.

    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?
