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.
