Mid Shropshire Wheelers 25 . 16/4/17

Well, last time I raced over these roads it was in the WCTTA 12hr event in August..Oh what a difference 6 months can make.. It was a early start for the WVCC boys [there were just 2 of us to face the timekeeper] as I was picking Andy Wooley up in Weaverham at 0700. Bikes […]

VTTA National Championship 10 mile TT

Manchester and NW hosted the VTTA [Veterans Time Trial Association] National Championship 10 mile TT , on the J2/1, Months Heath to Knutsford Road.  It was interesting that I could hear many woeful complaints after riders had finished, about the ‘sporting nature of the course’ and the’ very rough road surface’..  people came from all […]

My 24 hour TT – a box ticked.

I am sorry for this lengthy tome, I was intending to keep it short but…so if you read these ramblings, sit down with a coffee, you’ll need it to stay awake! How do I start to recount the ride of my 1st [and possibly only 24hr TT] especially when, a] Dave Fearon has given a […]

Well the weather gods smiled on us again tonight, and although it wasn’t a scorcher, at least it stayed dry…. Alan Forrester was a clear winner of the Dave Astles Memorial Trophy.. and a worthy winner he was too, he had two wins and a second over the series. I hope he enters next year […]

Many of you will know that Mark Adshead had a big off yesterday. He was taken to Aintree Hospital in Liverpool [the NW Chest injury centre] were he remains.
He has a multiple fractured collarbone, Multiple fractured ribs and yesterday had a punctured lung. I have spoken to his wife earlier and she reports that he is as well as can be expected but obviously has to deal with the pain and discomfort he has. But he is in the right place.. I will pass on any messages to his wife.
