Claims for Time Trial Standards – 2016

Members – If you rode one or more time trials in 2016 and think you may have achieved a club standard award please go to “Club Info”, “Competition” and “Club Time Trial Standards” on our web-site.  If you check the standards time on this tab and you do qualify for one or more awards then […]

Stone Wheelers 25 – 10th September 2016

Time triallists talk about “Float days” which come along very rarely but when  they do it just feels fast in all directions.  Today was such a day and those who were lucky enough to ride made the most of it as the J5/8 course at Blythe Bridge is the quickest one in the area and […]

WVCC Club Championship 12 Hour –...

It’s funny how these things come about as all 3 riders who entered the 12 hour this Year didn’t have it on their radar until very recently.  Jim’s amazing 24 hour epic was definitely the catalyst, so thanks for that Jim (not)!  I asked Jim a while ago if he was going to make the most […]

Mersey RC 24 Hour National Championsh...

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 […]

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 […]

Club 100 Mile Championship (Closest E...

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 […]

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 […]

Club 50 mile Champs – 18th June...

Club 50 mile Champs – 18th June 2016

  Today was the M&DTTA 50 mile champs incorporating the WVCC club champs.  A large field of 105 riders was on the start list and WVCC had 5 entrants.  First off was yours truly feeling OK but a little worried after spending 25 hours on planes this week flying to San Francisco on Monday and […]

Anfield BC 100 – 30th May 2016

Anfield BC 100 – 30th May 2016

This is a classic in the World of Time trialling as this event has been held since 1889 and the list of winners is a who’s who in our sport.  The course is largely on quiet single carriageway roads and unfortunately the start time is 6:01am!😟 Only two brave (stupid) souls met the starter and […]

Warrington R.C. 50 – 28/05/2016

A quick report on today’s local open TT.  3 WVCC riders started but sadly only 2 finished as Caroline Fearon retired at 34 miles but will be back for more next week. Second quickest in our colours was Alan Shuttleworth riding fixed wheel and he was happy with his time of 2:31:24.  Alistair Stanway was […]

Leigh Premier RC 10 – 22nd May ...

Leigh Premier RC 10 – 22nd May 2016

Today Caroline and Dave Fearon rode their second time trial of the weekend following on from the 25 yesterday.  The event was supposed to be a 25 but road works forced the organiser to reduce it to a 10 using the D10/1 course at Rainford. The weather was much more settled today which was just […]

Stone Wheelers 25 – 21st May 20...

Stone Wheelers 25 – 21st May 2016

Today was the first outing on the rarely used but fast 25 mile course at Blythe Bridge, along the A50 dual carriageway.  The day didn’t look promising with heavy rain forecast all afternoon which usually means a cancellation of the event for safety reasons.  We had an impressive 11 WVCC entries plus Carl Ruebotham who […]

Helping set course today for @WeaverValleyCC for @nwcca race tomorrow. I hope the wind dies down! 🌪 pic.twitter.com/c06JEpWqY1
