CTT Newsletter for January 2018

South DC District Secretary, Kathy Collard-Berry, has circulated the latest CTT Newsletter (PDF) with the following note:

“Three highlights are the Course Measuring Workshops, the Change of Date for the Thruxton Circuit Championships and the attempt by the Highway Agency to ban Cycling on the A63 or V718. This last is important as it could affect courses all over the country, so if you would like to join in the objections being put forward by other Clubs please feel free to do so.”

Youth Season Review 2017

Some of the youth training at Bournemouth Velodrome

It’s been a busy 2017 for the youth riders of the club on the track and road.

Icebeakers in Newport
It all started back in January with the National Icebreakers in Newport. We had many riders competing across the 3 weekends gaining some awesome results showing off the club colours. These riders were Oliver P, Digby, Jamie, Charlotte, Tom and Lucy.

National Youth Circuit Series
The National Youth Circuit Series got under way at Hog Hill. This series carried on throughout the summer months with some riders travelling across the country from London to the Isle of Man, Morecambe and Lancaster, Hillingdon, Stirling and finally Scarborough. Some really tough racing for our riders, gaining huge amounts of experience with Lucy finishing 4th overall against the country’s best U16 Girls.

We also had Tom and Jamie travel down to Devon for some regional youth racing both achieving highly each event and doing the club very proud!

Lucy at the North West Youth Tour

Here is Jamie racing hard at Castle Combe

Easter brought around a few big races for the youth riders with Lucy competing in the Youth Tour of Scotland for the South and then many racing at the Castle Combe Easter Classic. In fact, we had a rider in nearly every age category!

Youth Omniums
April also brought the first of the regional youth omniums in Portsmouth, followed by Brighton and of course Poole Wheelers very own event at Bournemouth Velodrome. Our event was incredibly well organised by Simon and Michelle Pettifer which made for the most enjoyable omnium yet! Thanks again to all the sponsors too!

Our riders competing in these included Jamie, Charlie P, Oliver P, Digby, Patrick, Thom-Eidar, Charlotte, Tom, Lucy, Dan, Oliver G, Oliver T, Evie, Ben and Charlie A. For some of our riders it was their first ever race and they sure did everyone proud!

Not only was the team spirit high, but the talent was clearly recognised with Jamie, Oliver G, Evie, Lucy, Oliver P and Charlie P all gaining podium spots across the three rounds.

Evie 1st U10 girl

Ollie G 2nd U10 boy

Ollie P 2nd U12 boy

Jamie 3rd U14 boy at Preston Park

Lucy was 1st U16 girl at every event

Jamie and Lucy earned enough points to qualify for the National Omnium Final at Herne Hill. Both showed the PW colours with strength and determination among the country’s best riders.

Local Circuit Leagues
Throughout the summer we had a number of leagues that our youth riders were attending such as Odd Down, Goodwood, Thruxton, Portsmouth circuits and the Winchester Park and Rides.

Tom 3rd in Portsmouth

Lucy riding up in the women’s race at Goodwood

Winchester Criterium included the Southern Regional Road Championships again this year with storming rides from the youngsters including a podium finish from Oliver G, and a top 5 from Charlie P and Jamie along with all our youths giving it 100%.

Lucy top left & Jamie bottom right

Prudential Youth Grand Prix

The summer was a big one for our riders. Lucy and Jamie both competed in the London Prudential Youth Grand Prix at the Olympic Park for the South Team. First time in a team for Jamie and both performing to their best as always.

Tour of Assen
Tour of Assen for Tom, Jamie, Oliver G, Ben, Oliver P and Charlie P gave some great experience in Holland and some of the toughest racing yet! There’s a great article written by Jamie on our website.

At the same time as Assen, Lucy was racing in the National Youth Track Championships in Newport, a long draining week but plenty of experience gained each day. As we came to the end of the long season we had the UK School Games finals for Lucy and the rest of Team South. She and the other girls raced brilliantly gaining 3rd overall after the short crit races and 3rd by a fraction of a second in a gruelling team time trial.  Lucy herself gained 2nd in the sprints day and 8th in her final youth road race.

Tom at the start of the 60 lap scratch race

Inter-Regional Track Championships
Our final track race for the youth was for Tom and Lucy in the Inter-Regional Track Championships up in Glasgow. Both doing their bit for the team in a tough weekend of racing.

Time Trials
Many of the youth riders have taken part in time trials too over the summer and there are details of those on our Time Trial page. Three riders – Tom, Jamie and Izzy – recently won their categories at the National Closed Circuit competition. So watch this space for further wins.

Dan, Jamie, Izzy, Ben & Tom after their fantastic rides

What a year it has been for all our youth riders with ups and downs for everyone. It’s all learning and amazing experience, and a big thank you to all the organisers and volunteers at all the events across the country.



And not forgetting Graham our coach and the parents for the constant support and encouragement throughout the season. Thank you!

Sam Wadsley improves his club 10 record and signs for Primera-TeamJobs

Strava stats from Sam’s record ride (not the official time)

Not content with holding all three club TT records over 10, 25 and 50 miles, Sam Wadsley decided to knock another 22 seconds off his 10 mile record to an astonishing 19:00 at the Paceline RT 10 on the P881r Griggs Green course. After the ride he thanked Greg Parker Cycle Coaching for all his help this season.

Sam’s efforts have not gone unnoticed and it was announced earlier today that he has joined Primera-TeamJobs Senior team for the 2018 season! Primera announced “it is pleasure to have such a talented young rider on the team”, and that he is “looking forward to being part of a close-knit team and would love to achieve a top 10 in a national TT event”. Sam will remain in contact with Poole Wheelers as a second claim member of course, and will be joined in the Primera ranks by another Poole Wheelers second claim, Martin Rowland, who in 2017 teamed up with Ryan Weston as UK-Biking – Bournemouth Cycleworks – Trek Cycling Team sponsored riders.

Sam has been on a tremendous journey in Poole Wheelers since his first TT on 17th April 2013. Legend has it the young chap turned up to one of our club TTs pleading to have a go. Craig Weston did a 2-up with him to clock in a 27:43 and fondly recalled: “I even said stay on my wheel for 9 miles and with a mile to go ride past me and give everything you have, you lasted about 20 yards before blowing up.” His talent was obvious though, as he finished the season with a PB of 22:47 and joint winner of our Third Division. He won our First Division in 2014, and has won the Premier Division for the past three seasons (2015, 2016, 2017 – last one unofficial / unconfirmed). In 2015 he also won the club’s Rothwell league, and he of course picked up most of the junior trophies on the way. He will be missed by everyone in the club, though fortunately it means someone else will get the chance to feel what its like to lift any number of the club trophies Sam has dominated in the last few years.

Best of luck from everyone in the club! You are a giant among men.
