M&DLCA Invitation 10 – 1st July 2017

As Caroline and I would be busy organising the M&DTTA 100 on Sunday we thought we’d better do some exercise this weekend so entered the Manchester Ladies invitation TT at Chelford.  Ladies (the old fashioned name for a Female), ride the event on their own but pair up with a gentleman (old fashioned name for a bloke), who also rides on his own … do you get that … read on?  When I say “pair up”, please don’t take this the wrong way as it merely means that the organiser adds the two times together at the end and the quickest combined time wins the event.  Maybe Ewart saw the Ladies Invitation in the handbook and saw it as a speed-dating opportunity….. I don’t know….. but whatever prompted him, this was his first open TT for quite a while.  He was er….paired up with Moly Horsley Frost who I hasten to add is a respectable married Lady from the Buxton CC.   Anyway enough of this nonsense, what happened in the race?

Ewart powered his way round the course in a very respectable 24:58 taking 12th fastest man.  He seemed to be happy with his performance although as he pointed out it is a little strange riding tri-bars when you’re not used to them.  I’m sure that he will and when he does he will fly with his great strength.  Molly clocked a very quick 25:06 for 6th place in the ladies.  Their combined time of 50:04 gave them 4th overall.

Caroline Fearon was happy with her time of 28:49 taking 22nd fastest lady so with yours truly stopping the clock in 9th place with a 23:54 our combined time of 52:43 gave us 15th overall.

Fastest man was Scott Leverington with a rapid 20:56 and fastest lady Claire Harrisson of Vision Racing with 24:12.  The combined prize went to Scott Leverington with his partner Zoe Whiteside of Team Bottrill also doing a quick 24:40 for a combined time of 45:36.

Glad I finished working that lot out, it was making my head hurt!

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

Advice required.
Just done a 1st proper run out in the converted TT bike. Most if the setup is OK but 2 things noticed.
1 - A real pull in the left shoulder making it very uncomfortable. Right shoulder fine. Do I widen the pad position on both pads or just the left one (making it less symmetrical)?
2 - Hamstrings are pulling when pedalling. Seat height comparable with Normal road position (No hamstring pain). Is this because it is a strange position I am not used to or saddle height?

Reminder, this weeks long ride is now to the Ponderosa. It’ll be around 85 miles with a big climb in the middle 😳. The club website still says Prees.

Short ride still to Red House Farm, Dunham.

NOW SOLD - Track bike for sale

I bought this bike 18 months ago off the Fearon’s when I first dipped my toe into track cycling. I didnt want to spend too much at the time in case I didnt get on with it, as you all know, I do get on with it, so its time to upgrade 👍🚴😃

8.5 kg total
Lightweight frame perfect for beginners and experienced riders. Very good condition. Mostly used indoors on velodrome.
Parts:
Similar to Dolan Precursor aluminium track frame (no transfers). Alpina carbon fiber forks with drill out for front break. Chrome token chainset, stem and bars. Ambrosio alloy wheels with veloflex tyres. Selle italia saddle(very small scuff). KMC hollow pin, hollow link chain. No pedals.

I am 179cm (5’10.5”) tall, so perfect for someone around the same height give or take a bit.

If you are a regular at the WVCC track night, you will be paying about £19 a time to hire a bike and shoes, so you will soon recover your money. You may also decide to get your accreditation and ride SQT’s, in which case its a no brainer.

£250
