John Boote Memorial Senior Road Race

John Boote Memorial Senior Road Race

Well done to Graham and Ann for the impeccable organisation – everything seemed to go very smoothly. It’s amazing to see how everyone does their bit – a real team effort – there must have been at least 30ish WVCC members involved, in various capacities. Steve Thomas’s role as motorbike outrider looks the most fun […]

TLI: WVCC success

TLI: WVCC success

In the over 50s and over 60s race, Alan Kemp led a great breakaway of three off the front: they built an impressive lead of about a minute, but somehow the pack managed to whittle this down and eventually Alan and pals were swallowed up by the bunch…however despite all his hard work earlier on […]

TLI Lower Withington Tuesday 12th May – with video!

Thanks to Jed for the video, at the bottom of this article! After rain on week 1 and a diesel spillage on week 2 (we found out this was the result of an accident involving Alex Ferguson’s grandchildren), the only hazard tonight was a low sun and a strong wind – but no complaints, it […]

TLI Tuesday 5th May

TLI Tuesday 5th May

Another wet night, this week’s numero uno hazard was a diesel spillage covered by lots of orange sand, not something you’d choose to ride over when trying to keep up with a bunch riding at >25 mph round a bend, but luckily this week no-one crashed. Another good turnout for WVCC, Craig and Dave riding […]

TLI Crash Update

Thanks to Richard Munro for this update on Tuesday night’s crash… As some of you are aware, Andy Poole and I were involved in a crash at the TLI race at Lower Withington last week. Andy and I took part in the under 50s race which, on a wet and dark evening, was cut down […]

TLI Lower Withington Tuesday 28th April

A horrible wet night: because of the conditions and poor light the organisers thankfully limited us to 4 laps. Craig, Andy Poole, Richard M and Dave rode in the youngsters’ race, with Graham, Kevan and me in the over 50s, whilst Nick and Chas marshalled, Ann and Helen Gregory, Jed and Dave Astles supported and […]

Racing to oblivion…

Racing to oblivion…

Eleanor writes:Much to my disappointment, when I pulled into Weaverham High School all the riders looked fit, whippet-like and young. I was hoping to see at least a couple of duffers with stabilisers, but no luck. Anyway I resolved to follow the only piece of advice Kevan gave me: get to the front at the […]

As a club, we’d like to wish Andrew Simpson @simmo_on_sport all the best for the future, with a heartfelt thanks for supporting WVCC all these years....
