Fantastic results for club youngsters at the RTTC National Youth Championship finals

Isabel Sharp won the 10-mile National Youth Championship at the RTTC finals staged in Norfolk on Saturday 8th September! Not content with just being National Champion, Isabel also clocked a new the GHS Championship Record… This is an extraordinary achievement from a rider who is still only 13!

Cycling Weekly, 13th September 2018

Poole Wheelers also took home the team price with Tom, Jamie and Isabel, who all also won their respective age groups. Their combined winning time of 1:01:52  was also a new GHS Championship Record. That’s a lot of winning!

Isabel Sharp: 22:04 1st 13 year old, 1st overall girl and 39th overall in the combined results
Thomas Day: 19:32 1st 16 year, 2nd overall
Jamie Whitcher: 20:16 1st 14 year old, 9th overall

Tom was only one second off the winner…

“I felt strong through the whole race and was pushing for a PB however when I hit the monster head wind on they way back I knew I had to dig deep”, recalls Isabel. “When I saw my time at the end I was so pleased. I didn’t even realise I had won overall until my friend told me. Definitely my best achievement to date.”

Jamie said that “during the TT I had no idea how I was doing, I had no one to chase and I couldn’t see my Garmin but I felt really good and pushed hard all the way. When I sat up at the finish to see my time I was really pleased, very happy with my age cat win and overall result.”

This caps off an extraordinary summer for our youth riders, who have been competing in a range of races in the UK and abroad. Jamie even won the Kids-Tour Berlin 2018, a four stage race, as part of the international Cannibal Team. After a fantastic performance in individual and Team time trials, a road race and a criterium race, Jamie won the Yellow Jersey and Cannibal Team won the Team Classification!

Congratulations from everyone in Poole Wheelers to all our youth riders!

Bike Ball Demonstration – come and have a try !!

Fancy something a bit different? Well how about Bike Ball! The sport has been around for a while but is relatively unknown in the UK… until now! A crack German squad will be making a guest appearance as guests of Bournemouth BMX Club and Poole Wheelers Cycling Club on Friday 7 September at St Peter’s School, Bournemouth (BH6 4AD) from 6:30-8:30pm. Watch a demonstration, and have a go yourself. Bring along a bike (mountain or BMX best – FLAT pedals NO cleats), your cat-like balancing skills and a sense of humour! We will retire for refreshments to the Riverside Pub afterwards.

 

Here’s a taster… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfTM1mMce40
