Fairmile – TT Results – 18th August

The last summer club TT of season and an almost perfect night on Fairmile CC241 produced a string of notable rides, with many riders recording PBs and course PBs.
Mark Cox (Fairly United CT) was quickest after taking full advantage of the conditions with a 20m56s ride. This ride being the fastest in our club database for Fairmile, congratulations Mark. Club members Steve Mead (21m57s) and Harri James(22m01s) were 2nd and 3rd, also securing course PBs in the process.
Thanks to the Timekeepers and volunteers for putting on the TT.

Next Thursday see the “fun” Hill climb of Wittenham Hill (if the planned roadworks in the area have completed), volunteers still required.

Weekend roundup and volunteers needed!

Hi All,

It was a busy weekend for Didcot Phoenix, with our Open Club 10 attracting a large field of riders and many thanks to all volunteers who helped run the event.  It was a successful afternoon on the Witney bypass with Paul Gamlin of Northover Vets Team winning the event in 20:08.  First DPCC rider was Steve Mead who had a time of 22:05.  Results can be seen via the link below.

DPCC H10/181 22/08/15

In other news, DPCC club member Phil Brown had a cracking ride in Wales beating the current club 25 record with a time of 50:04 and completing the top 10 of this hugely popular event.  Congratulations Phil for an amazing time!

Equally fast Richard Harrison was also in action this weekend on the super quick V718 course up in Hull…Richard finished the 10 miles in 19m 46s.

Finally, this coming Sunday is the club Hill Climb Championship.  There is a huge trophy up for grabs, but we are still looking for a time keeper to run the event.  Please contact timetrials@didcotphoenix.co.uk if you are able to help.

Bye for now,

Mike

 

Weekend Round up

Sunday 5th July:
8 a.m. : DPCC utilised our friends at Oxonian CC – Open 25 mile TT on the H25/17 course for our club champs. On what was a perfect float morning with not a breath of wind, Steve Mead and Clare Hofmann emerged victorious as Mens and Ladies champions – 2015. Congratulations to Both!

Thanks again to Oxonian for a super event.

9 a.m.: The ever popular Club run with ~20 members led by Ron and Simon had a great morning ride to Waterperry. For the usual great weekly write up of the club run see our internal forum section here.

11:30 a.m.: 3 plucky DPCC riders were among a strong 80 man peleton in Kirtlington for the latest round of the ORRL hosted by Cowley road Condors. A great event again in perfect conditions, although a non racing incident on the final lap did interfere with the ultimate results, but Sebastian Charlesworth rode his luck and finished in a unconfirmed top 10 place.
Congratulations to Seb and the team.
Cowley road condor road racers. 7th for seb

Finally Richard Harrison took a drive up to to Hull to Ride on the now famous V718 course in a City RC event. Unconfirmed results again, but I hear it may be a new club record for a 10 mile TT in a monster time of 19 minutes 6 seconds. Looking forward to validating that as a club record Richard!
Edit results now confirmed, new club record! Results here and photos of Richard here.

As usual, if you have any cycling related activity you want to share then drop me an email here.

Weekend round-up – New Club record

Phil Brown breaks the club vets record for a 50 mile TT that had stood for 20 years! Phil used the Liss P855 course in Hampshire on Sunday 28th June to set the record. Congratulations Phil!

Also on Sunday Mark Scanlan won the 10 mile Chris Hart memorial TT – handicap event on the H10/17r, using one of Chris’s bikes. Congratulations to Mark!

And finally, last week saw a criterium race at Dalton barracks, which forms part of the popular Oxfordshire Road Racing league. 8 of our members took part with Jez Hewitt securing 5th spot which should consolidate his 3rd place in the league overall. Congratulations Jez!

Weekend Roundup – new Club Record

RTTC National Championships

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.

Phil’s ride of 19m 38s is a new Senior and Vets Club 10 record.

Congratulations Phil from all in the club!

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.

Congratulations Tim!
