WVCC Club 25 – 2016 Championshi...

Ch25

A bright and cool night greeted the riders competing for the glory of the Club 25. Spirits were high, and the Lee appeared(!) Everyone knew that they were racing for 2nd place. 🙂 A slight headwind along Penny’s Lane would mean that times would be gained on the fast run along the A530 – King […]

Jack10

Well, here we are, a week after major traffic jams and club championships settled, back to the long game of Guardian Cup points, fast times, and a more subtle battle than last year as we complete round 8. The night was a good one, with some great times and many a PB set. Fast seasoned […]

Jim24hr

First of all a big congratulations to Jimmy Williams for completing the Mersey RC & National 24 Hour championship this weekend.  The result and everything else are just part of the (lengthy sorry), story and we’ll get on to that, but the achievement for every rider is just getting to the finish.  Jim will create […]

WVCC Club 10s – 2016 Championsh...

Lee Suthard - he is not human.

Fortunately this evening, many managed to battle through the chaotic traffic to get to the 10, and some excellent times were posted. No doubt who the winners were from the evening, when Lee turned up, it was to be his night, with a superb 21:24 to take gold. Speedy and consistent Jim Duffy took silver […]

Nova CC  & M&DLCA 25 – 9th July 2016

Caroline & I were the only WVCC starters in this promotion which saw two races, the Nova for the men and the Manchester & District Ladies event for the women.  My old friends Ian and Mavis Ross from my former club the Nova were the organisers and we always make an effort to ride this […]

WVCCFinalFling20150819_023

Well, we are well into the last half of this year’s competition, and this week there were some good times steady times set. Lee romped home with the fastest time, as he does every time he turns up – unless Matt Nowell pays a visit of course, and after an on course incident, where Strava […]

Team Swift 10 , 6th July 2016

Jim secretly prepping a couple of weeks earlier, for an all time personal best!!

Carl Ruebotham said ” you need to get over and ride the V718 mate it’s really fast”  “not fast enough for an Open Event, and too fast for the slowest riders event” says I…. But,  I decided that if you want to win the lottery, you have start off with a ticket..so a couple of […]

IMG_02121.jpg

I write this lengthy (sorry), report with a mixture of emotions due to the bizarre set of circumstances that transpired on the day of the M&DTTA Open 100 mile champs.  At this point I should mention that I was also the organiser of the race as well as a participant. The conditions were excellent as […]

fearon1

After a rainy day, it looks like the few riders that took to the course picked a break in an otherwise wet and windy day. Some times meant big things this evening though, as Dave Fearon romped ahead to clinch the fastest time of the evening, followed by a pre-washed Jim from the Mersey Ferry […]

Emily tries out her new ttoy…

A TT report by Emily…. Due to a few other time trials going on at the weekend, there was a very low Weaver Valley contingent in the East Lancs 25 mile TT round the J2/9 on Saturday. The rain was predicted to finish at 2pm, which would have been perfect for the start time; however […]

Otley CC 50 – The No Gaffa Tape...

WVCCHeader3

Many of you will remember Dave Fearon’s epic ride a couple of years ago when he had to Gaffa tape his trainers to his pedals as he forgot his shoes, well this was the same event. As many of you know, I am no stranger to getting up early, but when the alarm went off […]

BDCA 50 – 25th July 2016

BDCA 50 – 25th July 2016

Today was my first ride this Year in a top class field as this event is traditionally the most difficult one to get into because of the fast course on the A50 at Etwall.  True to form all 80 entrants had faster last 3 season times than a 1:54 and nearly as many entries were […]

I would like to pay tribute to my 24 hour support team. who were constantly responding to my whims and foibles, never dropping a bottle or feed , they were very enthusiastic and that was catching and they are a credit to our wonderful club. I found it really comforting to know that I would see a friendly face and shouts of encouragement all around the route. So [in alphabetic order] Dave Fearon, Graham Gregory, Ged Lacey and Syd Rimmer. I really do owe you all. I would also like to thank Anne Gregory, Helen Gregory, Caroline Fearon, Nigel Woods and of course my darling and very understanding wife Kathy [there won't be anymore 24hr spending] and all those club members who turned up to shout encouragement on the finishing circuit and who met me at the HQ.. I didn't rush over, as well as not able to move very quickly and I was really moved and emotional.. Thank you all.. you've made all made me very happy and proud to be a member of the blue and yellows.. ... ’Expand’’Hide’
