Club 10 postponed this week

Club 10 postponed this week

Never usually one to be swayed by popular opinion I am breaking the habit of a life time and postponing the club 10 this week despite the fact that it was to be the club championship race.  It is clear from the many posts on Faceache that very few if anybody will turn up if […]

Club 10’s – Guardian Cu...

Club 10’s  –  Guardian Cup & Scratch Competition Standings after Round 6

I finally got around to putting together the cup competition tables now that we are just over half way through this Year’s series.  So far the 10’s have been pretty well supported and certainly up on last season so thanks to the riders who have taken part to date. At this point it starts to […]

Club 10’s – Round 6 – 27th June 2018

Phew what a scorcher!  Great evening for sitting outside a pub with a nice cold drink, but failing that maybe a breeze from a gentle bike ride would do the trick (I think not).  20 brave souls battled with the humid conditions but some PB’s were achieved so clearly we have some sun lovers in […]

Club 10’s – Round 5 – 13th June 2018

A blustery night for once with rain threatening but fortunately never came.  Cheshire East decided to dig up some more roads so we reverted to the old Lach Dennis/ Barkers Lane 2 lapper.  We had 6 visitors and the winner overall was Dave Jones (unattached) who was once a quick rider and hasn’t lost too […]

WVCC 10’s – 2-up – ...

Another great night for the “so called” 2-up.  “So called” because only 2 pairs rode and 15 solos which begs the question should we drop the event and just have a solo race in future.  Fastest pair were Ged lacey and his partner (only for racing I hasten to add!), Alex Chaffey Green with a […]

Club 10’s – Round 4 ̵...

An unusually still and warm evening following a rainy afternoon produced float conditions and as a result we had a number of PB’s tonight.  Paddy Lucas stole the show with his winning time of 25:08.  Carl Hitchenson wopped a massive 1min 40 secs off his PB to take maximum 25 points towards his Guardian Cup […]

Club 10’s – Round 3 – 23rd May 2018

Yet another cracking night with several PB’s.  Quickest man was Paul Connor with a his first of many 25mph rides recording 23:49.  Emily also stepped up another gear tonight on her meteoric rise to stardom with a stonking 24:40 for 2nd quickest overall out of 24 riders.  Emily will go well under the hour for […]

Club 10 – Second Round – ...

Club 10 – Second Round – 16th May 2018

A great turnout for the 10 this week on a sunny but cool evening.  Good to see a few new (and some old), faces setting benchmark times for the Guardian cup including: Rob Dacey, Darren Johnson, Luke Curbishley, Colin Latter, Carl Hitchenson and most notably 15 year old Sam Jones.  Your rides from next week […]

Club 10 – 1st Round – 9th May 2018

Members were clearly put off by the rain that started early evening on Wednesday as only 7 riders took part.  Shame as it stopped raining for the event so everybody who did ride got away with it.  Incidentally skin is waterproof (says he who also didn’t ride)! Roadworks on the A50 forced a change to […]

Club 10 – Practice 10 – 2nd May 2018

A very windy night produced some surprisingly good times on Wednesday.  Regulars will know that a strong wind directly behind on Penny’s Lane is a good sign as you get a 2 mile kick start followed by mostly cross winds, with very little head wind.  We had a few first time riders and all went […]

Club 10 – 2-up – 25th April 2018

  Wednesday saw the start of our popular club 10’s on the Lach Dennis course.  The weather was cool with showers scudding across the skies but fortunately skirting around the course on either side.  18 riders supported the event, some riding solo and others as pairs.  The winning pair was Steve Malkin & Paul Connor […]

Last Chance to get your Standard Claims in!

The deadline for putting in claims for your TT standards elapsed a while ago but this is one last chance to get them in.  If you rode a club 10 or any open TT in 2017 then if it was a PB and you have not previously claimed a club standard for the medal colour […]

Can someone just confirm. Is tomorrow's TT the Championship event only ie not a Guardian Cup round? Looking at the calendar it seems that the GC Round 8 is on 25 July. ... ’Expand’’Hide’
