Richard Gildea wins the club 25 mile TT championships held within the BMCC hosted Leiden plaque annual inter club competition.
Richard was fastest rider of the day with 51m48s on a far from fast day in windy conditions, but it was Bicester Millennium that took the club honours in the Leiden plaque competition. Harri James was 2nd DPCC rider with 54m57s, and Martin Stanley 3rd with 57m41s.
Thanks to our friends at Bicester Millennium for hosting the event this year.
Richard Gildea wins the club hill climb championships up the double header of Flint hill and Streatley hill on a relatively fresh Saturday morning, it wasn’t plain sailing though as Junior PPV rider Matthew Coulson finished 2nd just 6 seconds off the aggregate time of both climbs. Chris Sayer completed the podium taking 3rd spot.
Thanks to our Marshals and time keepers once again for giving up their time today and across the Club TT season and a special thanks to Simon McGowan for maintaining the results in the club TT database.
Emily Mcloughlin and Chris Boddy were the quickest riders in the 2018 Club 10 mile TT Championship event on the Southmoor H10/17r course. Emily’s ride of 23m37s was also a new women’s club record, knocking 11s off the previous best time. Congratulations to Chris and Emily, and to the rest of the field on some very fast times.
A massive thanks to the hardy TT helpers on what turned out to be a wet night on the Fairmile CC241 course.
The TT started dry but very quickly turned wet after the first mile out of Cholsey and onto the Wallngford by-pass.
Tom Burney (Thames Velo) recorded 23m09s for 1st with clubmen Martin Stanley 2nd just 4 seconds back and Sam Boulton 3rd.
Next week sees us return to Southmoor for the Club 10 mile Championships on the H10/17r course, first rider off at 19:31. We still need a start timekeeper, and pusher please email email@example.com to volunteer.
Congratulations to Paul Demicoli who becomes the new DPCC freewheeling champion.
Saturday 27 Jan. You’re coming to Awards Night. Why?
1) Watching Richard collect his own bodyweight in silverware* is always a blast.
2) We’ve got extra-special guest Rachael Elliott (fastest female 10 in 2017, fastest female 30 EVER, world Brompton champion, Zwift Academy finalist and inaugural world CVR winner) coming to hand out our trophies and do a Q&A with President Tim. Arrive early to avoid the media scrimmage.
