Not a bad day at the Office for DPCC in the Antelope 50km 3-up team time trial. Firstly club lady Lucy Austin, Karla Boddy (Corley cycles), Suzy Robinson (VC10) formed a composite team to win the Ladies prize! And in the mens standings, Simon Kelly, Paul Demicoli and Simon Evans, rode solidly on a mix of TT and road bikes. And finally Richard Gildea, Harri James and Martin Stanley, were just 6 minutes off 1st place (to national level riders), but did find themselves on 2nd step of the podium.
Congratulations to Martin ‘Stan’ Stanley,
who has just won the gentlemen’s 4th cat race at Dalton Barracks. Yay! Social media suggests that he might be about to fritter his winnings away on a crafty half or two: and why not?
Lucy, who only started cycling ‘properly’ six months ago, stormed to second place in the OTRT women’s cat 234 crit race on 11 February. Credit also to her trusty domestiques, Karla (Corley Cycles) and Olivia (Twickenham CC) – particularly to Olivia, who raced even though she’s been suffering from goo on the lungs.
Entries are still open for the remaining two events in the series (ladies, any takers?), and a quick skim of the entry lists reveals that Anthony, Grant, Harri, James, Neil, Simon K and Stan will be in action in the men’s races on the 25th.
Meanwhile, Annabel is putting in the miles in preparation for another long-haul adventure. She’ll be spending March 9th – 14th riding 1,452km from London to Cannes. Turns out you can also get there in 2 hours on easyjet, but this way, Annabel saves herself the massive faff of airport security AND confirms her status as a legend.
A great night was had by the club members that attended the awards evening at The Steventon House Hotel on Saturday evening. Many thanks to our Chairman Tim for presenting the many awards and to Simon Evans for organising such a great venue, meal and quiz. Full set of photos here.

Good news! Becoming the fastest Didcot Phoenix rider called Richard has become fractionally easier, as Richard Harrison has been invited to ride amongst the great and the good at drag2zero. He remains the holder of the DPCC 10-mile TT record, with a storming 18:56 achieved on the V718 course last year.
We wish him all the best with his new team. Pop back and see us some Thursday night on the A420, won’t you Rich? We’ll be in the usual lay-by.
Simon McGowan retains the Christmas cup.
On a bright sunny but very chilly Boxing day, Tim Allen (RP racing) had the fastest time of the day but clubman Simon McGowan wins the much coveted Christmas cup for a 2nd year on handicap. Robert Briggs finished 2nd with Paul Demicoli and Martin Stanley tied for 3rd.
Earlier this year, Jared Jedynowicz of this parish applied to become a Pearl Izumi Champion. Last Friday, he was delighted to find out that he’s been selected from hundreds of applicants to join the scheme.
“Champions exist to support, educate, and inspire other cyclists through their committment to cycling, choice in apparel, community involvement, excellent beards and strong social media presence.”
(One of those may not have been on the Pearl Izumi website).
From February 2017, Jared will receive limited edition Pearl Izumi kit, online discounts, invitations to exclusive events, entrance to races, monthly fitness goals and expert tuition to really test himself. Cool, huh?
