Club 25 mile TT Championship and Leiden Plaque

It was a great morning of TTing for the club as part of the inter club Leiden Plaque competition on the H25/17 course. DPCC was 2nd in the team comp, with Chris Virgo 3rd in Handicap comp, and Richard Gildea 2nd overall on Scratch.
Richard also becomes the Club 25 mile TT champion for 2016, recording 55m57s for his efforts.
Well done to all riders with many DPCC members having a go at their first 25 mile TT, on what was a far from quick day with a strong westerly. Lastly we would like to say a big thank you to Luke Souter and Banbury Star CC for a fantastic event!

Autumn Newsletter

Hi All,

The nights are drawing in, the days are getting colder and for the umpteenth time this year, my commuter clothes are drying after another downpour 🙂 Yes, autumn is well and truly here and you can even buy mince pies in the local supermarkets!

To all of us at Didcot Phoenix, this time of year means the following:

  • Winter Turbo Training – Every Thursday from 19:00 at the Brightwell Jubilee Pavilion
  • Sunday Club runs now start from 09:30
  • Cyclo-Cross – Continues most weekends over the winter
  • Members need a Club Fleece to keep warm
  • Trophy and standards claims submission date approaching

Winter Training
Once again we are holding indoor turbo training sessions at the Jubilee Pavilion and my thanks goes out to Robert and Simon for hosting these evenings. Details can be found on the club website and are a great opportunity to carry form into the new season, socialise with club members and enjoy some thumping old skool music! All members are welcome, with a cost of £3 per session and you don’t even need to own a turbo trainer. If you are interested, please email turbos@didcotphoenix.co.uk to confirm your place.

Club Runs 

09:30 start time from this Sunday 25th
Depressingly the clocks go back this weekend and with darker mornings, we start the club runs from 09:30 from Broadway. Full details of our club run agenda can be viewed on the website, with this week’s destination the New Herb Kitchen.

Cyclo-Cross
Following on from the recent club AGM, I’m pleased to welcome two new members to the Didcot Phoenix committee, as Dan Atkins and Mark Winks are sharing the CX Secretary role for the coming season. Both are active CX racers and you can see them racing throughout the Wessex and Central league series this autumn. If you are interested in taking part in a CX race, both will be keen to provide information about this type of off-road racing! It’s great fun, pretty muddy and a fantastic way of racing away from traffic.

Email cx@didcotphoenix.co.uk if you are interested in taking part.

Après cycle wearClub Fleece
As modelled by Simon Evans at the AGM, the club is now selling fleeces which can purchased via clothing@didcotphoenix.co.uk. If you would like to buy one of these items, please contact Simon.

Trophy and Standards Claims
As we approach the end of this cycling season, we start to look forward to our annual awards evening and the final events for the year. Details of the awards evening will be posted on the website soon, but beforehand all trophy and standards claims need to be submitted by the end of November. All first claim club members qualify for time trial standards and the various trophies available. See the Trophy website for details and if you have a claim, please let club secretary Martin Stanley know by Nov 31st.

Email secretary@didcotphoenix.co.uk for all claims

AGM
Many thanks to all of you who attended the recent club AGM. The minutes of the meeting can be found on the AGM section of the website. It was a great evening, not only with new members joining the club committee, but we also welcomed back old members, filled some key positions in the club and enjoyed socialising with teas and biscuits 🙂

That wraps up this newsletter and I hope to see you all on a bike soon.

Mike
DPCC Chairman
