Welwyn Track League – 26 June 2015

WELWYN TRACK LEAGUE – 26TH JUNE 2015

Sponsored by Peloton Hatfield

George Olive Cleans Up

26/06/15 at Welwyn Wheelers track league meeting Sponsored by Peloton Hatfield and supported by Herts County Council saw a much depleted field due to other races taking place this weekend. Due to this there were only 25 youth riders and 19 senior riders.

The senior A racing only comprised of 5 riders. This played into the hands of George Olive (Finchley RT) who is very much a sprinter, so the small field was to his advantage winning all the senior A races.

Olive also won the 10 miler, which saw a number of attacks try and fail leaving Olive to take the closing bunch sprint.

Tom Durkin (Welwyn Wheelers), had a good night in the senior B racing taking wins in the point’s race and the hare and hounds. Durkin took a little while to warm up as he did not place in the opening senior B race which saw a hotly contested sprint won by Ben Selfe (Lee Valley CC).

The youth AB racing was very competitive with 15 riders in the field. Nathan Blackmore (Welwyn Wheelers) earnt a good win in the scratch attack with 2 laps to go holding off the closing field. Alexi Edwards (Palmer Park) had a good night taking a well-earned win in the block pursuit.

Tom Sharples (Welwyn Wheelers) won all the youth CDE races apart from the handicap race, for the second week running.

Volunteers required asap!

Many thanks to all those who have volunteered so far BUT  we are still in great need of some volunteers to help with administration, so that our coaches can concentrate on coaching rather than admin.

In particular we need:
– one  or two people to help update attendance registers
– one person to update our volunteers register

– one person to update the coaching availability rota

All you need is a basic knowledge of excel & an ability to type, it should take no more than an hour a week

Please step forward,  the club is run entirely by volunteers & we need to spread this load

Many thanks

Welwyn Track League – 19 June 2015

WELWYN TRACK LEAGUE – 19TH JUNE 2015

Sponsored by Peloton Hatfield

Jason Burrill takes the initiative

19/06/15 at Welwyn Wheelers track league meeting Sponsored by Peloton Hatfield and supported by Herts County Council saw 38 senior riders and 25 youth riders take part in fiercely contested racing.

The senior A saw some very competitive racing with Tony Gibb (Full Gas racing) and Frank Longstaff (Team Terminator) taking most of the spoils. Gibb took the point’s race by the scruff of the neck ridding just under half the race off the front on his own.

The 10 miler saw a great win for Jason Burrill (Peterborough CC) attack off the front with a lap and a half to go. With no one in the group willing to take on the chase, the sprinters left it too late and Burrill picked up a well-earned win.

The senior B racing was very open with a different winner in every race.

Tom Sharples (Welwyn Wheelers) won all the youth CDE races apart from the handicap race.

The youth AB racing saw a great ride by Louis Bilyard (Lee Valley) in the point’s race. Bilyard rode very strongly to take 5 points overall in the race and the win.

It is hoped the number of riders continues to rise as more riders mean better and more competitive racing.

ECCA 100 mile TT Sunday 21st June

Martin Dossett rode in the ECCA 100 mile TT on Sunday 21st June on the E2.
This is his race report.
Having never ridden a 100 mile TT and only a few 50’s I set a pacing plan to try to stick to and would see how that panned out as the event went on. It all started well (albeit at 05:16) with a nice tail wind for the first 30 miles and then the realization hit home as we turned at Red Lodge for 20 miles back into the wind. Still, another nice 20 miles followed that. Then the final 30 mile push for home into the wind with a now tired body and pains in the neck, shoulders and one forearm for some reason! With 5 miles to go and my target time slipping away I limped home no longer being able to stay down on the tri bars to finish in 4:03:56. Tejvan Pettinger (Sri Chinmoy Cycling Team) won in 3:41:45.
