Weekend Round-up 23rd Sept

Update from last week – Peter Weaver made another attempt on the 71 year old’s 25 mile record, his previous attempt thwarted by the event being cancelled! He rode the Southdown Velo event in 1.12.38 and claims the age related record.

Further to last week’s cyclo-cross opener, event registration is with Poole Wheelers (the event is a joint event) and hasn’t yet been completed. However the event will be at Crow Hill on 20th January so  add an entry to your calendar.

Basingstoke Cyclo-cross Wessex League round 2

Catherine Pascoe rode a wet and slightly muddy event to finish 36th out of 46 entrants, and 3rd V50 woman. Philip Sparkes also rode, in the V50 men, finishing 35th out of 41 entrants. Well done Philip, hopefully you enjoyed it!

Time Trials

Antony Green rode the E2/30c, and in spite of missing a sign and taking a diversion costing 2 min 02 seconds, recorded 1.03.01. The event was wet and windy, with more of a headwind on the way back, but oddly the event saw some fast times, possibly due to relatively slow moving traffic in the weather conditions.

P164 15 mile TT
