WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Round 8 – 20th July 2016

Well, here we are, a week after major traffic jams and club championships settled, back to the long game of Guardian Cup points, fast times, and a more subtle battle than last year as we complete round 8.

The night was a good one, with some great times and many a PB set. Fast seasoned legs brought some great times in.

Not surprisingly, Lee Suthard brought in a quick time of 21:28. but then Craig Lee went well under 25 with a 24:41, pipping Nick Butterworth only by 4 seconds for his 3rd place on the night.

*Note that non-club members do not qualify for Guardian Cup points.

For this week, we also saw some big point scorers come back, and Patrick Lucas chopped 89 seconds of his previous PB to gain maximum points for the round, whilst other winners were Nick Butterworth and Geoff Lovelady with late competition points scored. unfortunately, Rich Munro punctured and thus was a DNF for the night, still looking for a 5th result for his points tally.

AJ 27/07/2016: Addendum: Following a review of the timekeeper’s results for the evening, it has been noted that Rich Munro crossed the line with his puncture to record a 29:19, and although he wasn’t happy about his time, this has been recorded and scores 9 points towards the Guardian Cup.

So, how is the competition shaping up? Well, Dave Wilkinson stays static with his best 5 rounds already recorded at 113 points, but now there are hounds breathing down his neck, as positions 2 through 6 are all well into the nineties with their points. Rich himself can score big as he has only 4 counting rides this year, so can jump up with a fast ride in the next couple of weeks.

AJ 27/07/2016: Addendum: With the above time and points recorded, Rich retains his 2nd place, and Rich now scores 105 points with 5 counting rides.

Round 9 isn’t till 3rd August, as 27th July is our club 25 championship, but there are still 50 points up for grabs for those who haven’t ridden the maximum number of rounds, and potential jumps up the ladder for those who have points, but have chance to improve their times. It’s not over till August the 10th…. 🙂
