Gareth Davies made the top step of the popular Checkendon XC MTB rampage night race – round 4. He came 1st in the under 13 race, and also picked up 1st for the whole series after 3 consistent results in previous rounds. Results can be found here. Tim Davies also picked up 7th for the whole series in the Sport category.
George Towersey and Oliver Clark were competing in the Junior RTTC National 10 mile Championships on Saturday 30th August, both riders had really impressive rides with George finishing in 13th with a time of 21m38s, and Oliver in 41st with 23m 35s. Full junior results.
On Sunday it was the turn of the Mens RTTC National Championships, with Phil Brown making the long trip to the fast Hull V718 course. Phil Finished 59th, with 86 of the 143 riders posted times under 20 minutes. Full mens results.

Club Hill Climb Championships
Also on Sunday 31st August, the club hosted the annual hill climb championships on Crays pond followed by Streatley Hill.
Ron Smith had the fastest club time up Crays pond, with Tim Allen in second place just 3 seconds off his pace, with Martin Cairns from Reading CC in 3rd.
An hour later on the slopes of Streatley, David Ryan from Zappi’s CC was quickest with Tim Allen 2nd ahead of Ron Smith in 3rd.
After the times from both Climbs had been added it was apparent there would be a new champion in 2014
And so Tim Allen becomes Club Hill Climb Champion 2014.
Junior member Tim Allen competed in the BMX south champs http://www.bmxsouth.co.uk/ on Sunday at Burgess Park and secured three 5th places and backed that up with a 2nd place in the “B” final, narrowly missing out on the win by a couple of inches. No official results out yet but I’ll post a link when they are.
