M&DTTA 50 Championship – WV...

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 […]

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 […]

At long last below is the current standings for the new trophy (yet to be named) for the person with the highest number points across 7 best rider out of 10 in the club 10’s based on placings on actual time rather than handicap time This competition is aimed at rewarding the fastest riders but […]

Guardian Cup 10 – Round 4 – 31st May 2017

Another good night with a slight amount of rain but nothing to dampen the spirits.  Our humble club 10’s are attracting some quality riders these days with Olympic champions and pros last week and this week Simon Bridge, a regular winner in time trials and road races in the Manchester Area and recently moved to […]

Stone Wheelers 25 – 20th May 20...

Stone Wheelers 25 – 20th May 2017

This is the fastest course in the Manchester District on the A50 at Blythe Bridge.  It is also very likely that this will the last event on this road for a few seasons if not ever, as major road-works over the coming years will prevent racing.  So the event was massively over subscribed and the […]

Club 10’s – Guardian Cup Round 2 – 17th May 2017

Another good night after the light rain of the afternoon with little wind and some good times recorded. Not quite as fast as last week but no complaints apart from the usual excuses.  Jim Duffy showed his blistering form with a near PB for club 10’s of 22:42 but his PB was set on a much […]

M&DTTA 25 Championship – 13th May 2017

Today was the Manchester District 25 mile championship and as has been the trend this season to date, it was massively oversubscribed with getting on for 200 entries for 120 places.  Fortunately the event was a preference to Manchester DC riders so all of the returned entries were people from other areas. Weaver Valley had […]

Club 10’s – Guardian Cup Round 1 – 10th May 2017

Last night saw the start of the Season long club 10’s and this Year the format of the series has changed slightly.  Previously the series was a handicap competition with points gained in each riders’ 5 best rides counting towards their final score in the Guardian Cup.  However there are 10 rounds in total so […]

Dukinfield CC 50 – 6th May 2017

Dukinfield CC 50 – 6th May 2017

This first 50 of the Year in Cheshire has an amazing history.  It has been held every Year since 1928 and the Dukinfield Cyclists’ Club which is one of the oldest clubs in Britain was already 43 years old that year.  That first event was won by W.Ward of the Stretford Wheelers with a time […]

M&DLCA & East Lancs RC 10’s – 29th April 2017

Due to popular demand (from Jim Duffy as he hates writing reports), I am posting my first TT report of the Year.  Jim posted the others because this year I started racing much later than usual due to various holidays and annoying things like work getting in the way of my cycling. The afternoon started […]
