Guardian Cup and Scratch 10s results ...

More controversial than Peter Sagan’s elbow, there have had to be some adjustments to the overall and cumulative points standings due to an error in recording the PBs from last year. Fortunately, I’m not going to be thrown off the tour, and the results have been corrected. Fewer riders were out last week, and therefore […]

Gordon Pickering

Gordon Pickering

I received the following e-mail from Carol Pardoe at the M&DTTA about the sad passing of Gordon Pickering.  I worked with Gordon a lot as he used to be the area Courses secretary, a job which I have now taken over plus I sit on the M&DTTA  committee and he was active in both organisations for […]

Guardian Cup Round 6 – 28th Jun...

I think the drizzle put a few people off last week as we only had a turnout of 9 riders and just 7 from the club.  However those lucky few who did ride gained some great points towards the Guardian Cup and the new 10 mile scratch series trophy.  Jim Williams also started but hit […]

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 […]

M&DTTA 100 (inc Club Champs) – 2nd July 2017

You will recall this time last year, Dave Fearon took the Gold in the club Championships by just 1 second, that wasnt going to happen this year as he opted not to ride, leaving Just Alistair and me to contest it. Dave Fearon does an excellent job of organising this event, it is a thankless […]

Seamons CC RR 27 June

Last night Tony Booth and myself rode the old man’s Seamons CC Road Race at Siddington, Matt Ellis was in the Junior event. 3 laps of the Congleton circuit in changeable weather. I started reasonably, had a couple of digs towards the end of the first lap, both of which were brought back. Tony went […]

M&DTTA 50 Championship – WVCC champs

Don’t we cyclists complain a lot about the cold & wet weather?  Saturday the Sun God took control and boy did we complain…..phew what a scorcher! WVCC had 5 entrants in the M&DTTA 50 champs but the main prize from our side was the Weaver Valley CC club 50 champs.  Would Jim Duffy finally take his […]

Five Father’s Day Freaks

Father’s Day yesterday and we were the Fathers, King’s of the road. Who’s the Daddy? Who’s the Daddy? We were. At least that’s how we set off. By the time we returned home though the road had chewed us up and spat us out and we were vanquished like Arnold Schwarzenegger after his first day at […]

In September last year, I managed to scrape an entry on the fastest 10 mile TT course in the country, the V718 in Hull. On the morning of the event, the weather was terrible and forecast to rain all day, I decided not to make the 5 hr round trip,  gambling on them cancelling the […]

2-up TTT – 7th June 2017

2-up TTT – 7th June 2017

Sorry for the late report, life has been getting in the way! Contrary to rumours starting from a wind-up last week, this TT did not count for the Guardian Cup, for those who rode it solo.  It did however produce some interesting results, particularly from the 3-up of Hunt / Hassall & Langridge who produced a […]
