New course record on the P415/10 at PW Open TT

David Janes on his way to a new P415/10 course record of 18:31 (photo: John Pick)

It was another fast day on the P415/10 “ski slope” course for the Poole Wheelers Open, and the riders did not disappoint! The winner was David Janes (Wheels of Dorset | Aero Testing | Bike Fitting) who even treated us to a new course record of 18:31, knocking 9 seconds off the previous best by Tim Cartwright of Newbury RC set at the Gary Dighton Memorial Open TT. On Strava he describes it as his “first 10 mile of the year” and “PB by 10 seconds (last year 18.41 on p881), So very happy”, and claims he did it on only 5 hours sleep. Chapeau, David, we hope to see you smash it up in future events too! Check out his ride on Strava.

Louisa Cooper (Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers) was the fastest Lady with 22:47. Andy Langdown (Blazing Saddles) took home the Veteran’s price with a time of 19:19, whilst the ever young Terry Icke (Poole Wheelers) won the vet on standard time competition clocking in at 21:36(!) a cool 10:28 ahead of standard time for his age.

The team prize was split between Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers and Poole Wheelers, who both totalled 1:00:43 for their combined first three riders. It seemed a fitting tribute to the popular inter-club TT mini-series we have been running this year!

Honorary mention too for Sam Wadsley who cracked a fantastic PB with 18:53! Check out his ride on Strava. David, Gary and Sam all pushed some top rides on the P415, split only by Tim’s previous record on Strava. Check out how their rides compare:

Well done to everyone who took part, and all the volunteers who made it happen.

Photograph from the event will be published on the Poole Wheelers Facebook group in due course. We’re just waiting for John Pick to get back from his bike ride first…

Cancelled: club time trial on 11th July

Please note the Poole Wheelers club time trial scheduled for Wednesday 11th July on the P412/10 has been CANCELLED due to the World Cup semi final between England and Croatia.

Yes, that’s right, we’re cancelling a cycling event because of a football event(!), but apparently this is a biggie…

Gareth Southgate says “one game at the time”, so no announcements about Sunday’s event on the P415/10 course until after the semi final.

Steven Pink retakes club 50 record, grabs team record, and Patryk Witkowski secures club 15 record

Steven Pink regained his Poole Wheelers club TT record over 50 miles at the Blazing Saddles event on the P885/50 course on 24th June 2018, with a stomping 1:43:49(!) Sam Wadsley had snatched the 50 miles club record in the same event last season on his way to bagging a hat trick of club records (10/25/50).

Sam’s previous record was 1:46:14, which in turn was an improvement on Steven’s 1:47:05 record before that. They are both getting faster though, and Sam (who now rides for Primera-Teamjobs) clocked a nice 1:39:13 at the Blazing Saddles event this year.

Steven also bagged the Poole Wheelers club team record on the 50 miles distance, together with Patryk and Luke:

Patryk Witkowski Poole Whs 24 Jun 18 Blazing Saddles P885/50 32 1:48:55
Luke Rendell Poole Whs 24 Jun 18 Blazing Saddles P885/50 43 1:50:23
Steven Pink Poole Whs 24 Jun 18 Blazing Saddles P885/50 13 1:43:49

Check out Steve’s club record effort on Strava, and view our club records on the Poole Wheelers results website.

Read the full race report and results on the CTT website.

Patryk Witkowski set his own solo club record on the 15 miles distance only three days later, on 27th June 2018 at the …A3crg (Wessex Vets Championship) with super-fast 30:51 on the P884/15 course.

Event details from BJW:

  • Sign on for the BJW & Poole Wheelers interclub time trial on the P472 on Tuesday evening will be at Queen Elizabeth’s School, Wimborne. Given the anticipated numbers the usual sign on venue will not be suitable.
  • Please park in the lower car park – to the right of the main school entrance – sign on will be in the foyer. toilets are available in the school.
  • Please also note that the start/finish has been moved to Pig Oak at the junction of Furzehill and Petersham Lane, about half a mile further from old start/finish line. Riders will need to give themselves enough time to ride from the school to the start line: about 2.5 miles in total and includes a set of traffic control lights at the new housing development on the Cranborne Road.
  • To get to the start riders need to turn right from the main entrance at QE school. After 300 Yards fork left down Stone Lane. At the T junction at the bottom of the hill, turn left and follow the Cranborne Rd for half a mile – through the traffic control lights – and then turn right onto Furzehill. The start is about a mile or so along the road.
