Guardian Cup and Scratch points after Round 10

It couldn’t get more exciting with just 1 round to go in this year’s club time trial championships.

The Guardian Cup is now hotly contested, with Paul Connor now only 1 point ahead of Tony Booth after spending most of the season way ahead. But, as more riders get to riding the maximum of 7 qualifying rounds, points do tend to get closer as the competition draws to an end.

This means that the Guardian Cup can’t be decided until next week, and the last race will be an all out furious rush to gain more points than you’ve gained before, just to either keep a lead, or steal the championship!

The Scratch points are also pulling closer, with a change at the top as Dan Robson jumps 3 points ahead of Colin Carthy before the last round.

All the play for – so don’t miss next week!!

We are proud to announce that WVCC will be the organising club of the 2018 J-B @TLI_Cycling national RR Championship , to be held at Siddington on 12th August 2018

Tom Simpson " A bird on the wire " by Andy McGrath.

An excellent insight into pro racing in the 60s . Full of anecdotes not all complimentary, and great photos of Simpson in a bye gone era.

Whether you love him for his humour , sheer aggressive and impulsive racing style, his Britishness in marketing himself in order to gain publicity for his sponsors and money for himself or his class and incredible guts .


hate him for being a drugs cheat in the days when doping controls were in their infancy , bringing the sport into disrepute on a massive scale with his death on that fateful day , 13th stage , 13/07/67 when he collapsed and died on Mont Ventoux .

There is no denying he was a trail blazer along with a handful of others who ventured to the continent about 60 years ago in search of glory .To my generation they were our source of inspiration and our guiding lights.

It was thanks to those pioneers that have ultimately led to British riders in a British team , winning the Tour de France on 4 out of the last 5 years .

Something that Simpson died trying to achieve !
