It may seem a bit early to be talking about cyclocross but, to quote the organiser of the first race “it is only 32 sleeps to the first race of the season!”
The New Forest Cycling Club is now affiliated to the Wessex Cyclocross League for the 2019/2020 season. This means that NFCC riders will automatically get points for each race finished, culminating in an overall league position at the end of the season in January. Just make sure when you enter a race, that you put your club down on the entry. You will find the race calendar here: http://www.wessexcyclocross.co.uk/events/ – plus all other information about the League.
You can ride a mountain bike/gravel bike if you don’t have a cyclocross bike.
The New Forest CC are organising the penultimate race of the season, on 19th January 2020, at Crow as we did in January this year, together with Bournemouth Arrow, Poole Wheelers and Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers. We will need lots of volunteers again over the whole weekend (and huge thanks again to those to gave their time this year to make it a successful event). You can ride and volunteer, because there will be plenty of jobs to do before and after your race! Reminders will be sent nearer the time.

Ray Claridge won last night’s TT with a 36:04, a very good time that would likely have had his 3 minute man and second placed rider Stuart Peckham just in sight on the last rise to the finish. The evening had an unhelpful wind direction, but was warm and at least rain free. A further 4 riders were all within a minute of each other, Richard Parker holding off Phil Harris, Robert Veal and second claim Mike Anderson, for third place.
Next week is the final 10 series event, remember if you haven’t marshalled a 10 series event (see the division results posted recently to check) you’ll need to to qualify for the series.
PLEASE NOTE – the Hill Climb on the 29th Set has had to be cancelled, you can always ride the Crabwood one on the same date at Bolderwood.
As I’ve been away, the only news submission I’ve had is from Bob Jolliffe, and some disappointing news regarding cancellation of events that NFCC riders were due to take part in. Bob’s report below:
Results from past week follow: 26-43 in very windy a3crg 10 on the Buriton course on Wednesday evening followed by 27-53 on Thursday afternoon in the London and Home Counties’ VTTA 10 on the Maidenhead Thicket course on the A4 road east of Reading. It was a bit of a rush to get to the Thursday event as I had to attend a funeral of a Transplant Games teammate and friend at Wokingham. Arrived at the headquarters with 40 minutes to spare, so no real warm up. Just the ride to the start. I am off to the World Transplant Games on Saturday (Aug 17). This time it’s a home games in Newcastle. 10km time trial beside the Tyne on the Monday and 30km road race, 17 laps of a park circuit, the following day.Oh, nearly forgot: I am riding a veterans’ 25 on the E2 course in Cambridgeshire on the way up to Newcastle on Saturday morning, if I can get up early enough!Backing off training this week.
This Sunday’s Charlotteville CC 25 was cancelled because of the threat of blustery winds forecast for the Petersfield area, as was the Bournemouth & District Women’s CA 15km on the Ringwood-Sopley road on Saturday afternoon. A shame about the 25 on what can be a very fast course. As well as myself, Ray Claridge and Nick O’Hara were down to ride.’

Bob Jolliffe has been busy collecting age group and personal bests, some info from Bob :- “
Bob Jolliffe followed up a somewhat lacklustre 25 of 1-08-09 in South Wales on Sunday with a personal best – ever – 15-mile ride of 38-54 in the …a3crg event on P884 on his birthday on Wednesday evening and claimed a new club record for a 67-year-old.Bob knocked a minute and three seconds off his previous best for the distance set way back on March 14, 1971.”
Bob also rode this weekend as follows – “Did 27-40 this afternoon (SUN 28TH) on the windy H10/1 course on the Bath Road (A4) near Aldermaston in the Reading CC 10. Hot north-westerly headwind out to the turn, but the wind was not very helpful on the return leg because of shelter from the trees on the north side of the road. Chris Bartley (AS Test Team) won with 19-03.”
In other news, Catherine Pascoe rode the first of the Marlborough summer cyclo-cross events – “Antony Green and I did the Marlborough summer cyclocross races today. There were no other NFCCs riding but Mike Anderson and his wife came out to support and cheer us on. Thanks Mike! I finished 7th out of 10 women (I told you the fields were small!) and 3rd Vet 40+. I worked hard to get away from two women I know I can usually beat, but there was no way I could catch the others ahead of me as they are so strong (and younger than me!!). Antony finished 21st of 32 after starting at the back and then having to stop to pump up a softening front tyre. He worked his way steadily through the field from virtually last after the tyre incident! The course was very fast indeed, with no dismounts.”
