After Chris Day, Graham Hurst, Jeremy Gill and Simon Pettifer attended a Derny course on Saturday at Reading – Poole Wheelers now has 4 qualified Derny riders with Race B licenses ( subject to approval by British Cycling next week)
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…
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:
