Many thanks to Ron Smith for organizing the event, plus everyone else who once again ensured the event was a tremendous success.
Victoria Lawson has smashed the long standing ladies Club 10 mile TT record on the Liphook P881/10 course with fast 24m 19s. The ride wasn’t smooth sailing, with Vicky suffering a mechanical early on in the ride meaning she had to ride in a single gear!
Congratulations Vicky from all in DPCC!
Richard Gildea continues his winning ways with a impressive 21m 35s time on rather pleasant evening on Brightwell course, James Barlow (LBRCC) was just 7s back in 2nd, with Harri James taking 3rd by the narrowest of margins from 4th placed Neil Ashcroft.
Next weeks TT is on the CC118 Stadhampton course (19:31 start), with volunteers still required to help run the event.
Congratulations to Richard Gildea and Vicky Lawson who rode a chilly Southmoor H10/17r course in a testing wind to become Mens and Ladies 10 mile TT champions 2016.
Club social – Thursday 2nd June
After the Club’s 10 mile TT champs next week on the H10/17r Southmoor course, there will be a Club social in the Lamb and flag at Southmoor from 20:00, see their website for a menu.
As a reminder the Club champs is open to 1st and 2nd claim members only, with 1st claim members given preference in the unlikely event of the TT being oversubscribed.
Fairmile TT results – Thursday 26th May
Steve Mead wins on a warm and fairly still Fairmile course, with Richard Gildea taking 2nd. Also there were notable rides from both under 16 riders: James Ashcroft equaled his course PB and Alex Bosley smashed his PB by 1m40s
Paul Lloyd (Fairly United) finished 1st on the second running of the West Hanney CC271 course, Neil Ashcroft was quickest clubman in 2nd spot with 23m53s
Next week we move back to Fairmile, and we still need volunteers to run the event, can you help? Volunteer here.
On behalf of DPCC, it is with great regret to announce that both DPCC’s road races wont be running on Saturday 14th May, hopefully both riders and volunteers will have been informed by email from either BC or the club’s race organisers.
Mark Jones (Drag2Zero) was quickest on a warm but windy H10/17 course, Steve Mead was 2nd with Richard Gildea 3rd.
On Saturday 14th May, DPCC will be hosting 2 road races:
First off is the Oxfordshire Road Race League (ORRL) round 1 starting at 09:30
Followed by the Ridgeway Spring Classic at 13:30
Both races will utilise the Great Shefford course (see here for a map of the race circuit), with many DPCC members volunteering their time to help host these prestigious events. Even if you are not helping on the day it would be great for club members, and friends of DPCC to come and show their support for what is planned to be a great day of racing.
