Sign up: Gallows Hill 2-up TTT and Rothwell Individual TT on Sunday 17.03.2019

This weekend we are running two separate events at the same time.

The 10 mile ONLY individual TT Rothwell League event. 

and…

The Poole Wheelers 2-up TTT, which have the option of entering the 10 mile or the 20 mile event.

The two-up time trial and is a nice event to enter to get the legs going after weeks/months training in the wet freezing cold weather through winter. Being a two-up is also nice because your not alone and you get some brilliant company on the way round 🙂

Both events are held on the P459 Gallows Hill course, starting at 09:00.

Please put your name down on this site in the comments section below which will help us to get a start sheet going, but as always entries on the line will be accepted. Please indicate if you intend to do 10 or 20 miles (one or two circuits), and partner if entering as a team – or do a shout out for someone to partner with!

The event is as inclusive as possible, open to Poole Wheelers members and non-members. Please note that if you are not a member of another CTT affiliated cycling club, you can still ride by signing on as a day-member of Poole Wheelers when you arrive at the event.

We are always looking for volunteers to help marshal our events. If you are able to help out with this or any other event, please let us know in the comments below or email Luke Rendell.

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!
