Road Racing Report

Road racing update: 24 June 2014 by Gray Turnock Fourteen club members have been mixing it in the bunches this year, mainly in London and the Home Counties but with Johns Pritchard and Wood also showing the club colours in the north. The former earning a well-deserved promotion to the thirds in the process. Several…

Odam after round 5.

Eight ‘Parkers’ graced the E64 for round 5 on a pleasant evening and everyone performed at or near their potential; with the exception of Albert who was well off his usual pace, without any excuses. I wonder what happened. Michael Briars surprised; not with his performance, but that he managed to start on time, get…

Club Odam – After 4 rounds

Odam Series after 4 rounds. Round 3 was an improvement on previous trips and we nearly doubled our attendance to date with eight members scoring points and plenty of time left for everyone to have a tilt at the Odam trophy. Matt Larkins confirmed his early season promise and secured 10 points in his second…

Club Odam Series

The club Odam Series is under way with two rounds completed. Tom Boulton leads the scratch and handicap for the time being, but I expect the new names to make their mark and the Odam title is more likely to go to Andy, Dan, Matt or Mike if they apply themselves to a season of…

North Road Hardriders 23rd Feb

A few (painful) thoughts from Dominic Bray The legendary North Road Hardriders. The traditional season’s opener. The ride of champions. My second attempt. Last year was cold, -2 degrees cold, icy. Today? Moderate wind, 11 degrees, no rain. The only thing standing between us and a promisingly pleasant Sunday morning was 24 miles through ‘Little…

Xmas Cross Action

Peter Douglas reports. Had some internet problems over Christmas until Vince put me on the right track to sort them out; now catching up. The pre Christmas CycloX was in Croydon; suffice to say in a wood on the side of a hill with mud, roots, leaves and 50% up and 50% down that left…

Regional Cyclo X Champs

Report from Peter Douglas The senior race at Ipswich was a blinder with Benny Louis out front fighting for the win with Matthew Webber, Ross Tricker and Jack Finch, dicing with each other for the full hour with no one able to get a decisive gap until the last lap when Ross Tricker crossed the line, for gold,…

Cyclo Cross – 1st Dec.

Another weekend another cross race, Eastern League at Graffham Water a few miles the other side of Tempsford, 60 odd miles from home, which could be one of the reasons for me missing the vets race sign on for the second time this year. So onto the reserve list for the senior race and a…

Club Hill Climb – 20th October

Fourteen enthusiastic riders signed on for the 2013 hill climb, cocking a snoot at very heavy overnight rain that persisted until 15mins before the scheduled start time of 10:00. Our starter, Colin Baker, was still recovering from his soaking during last week’s Road Race marshal duties obliging Club Captain, Chris to step into the breach…
