PW 10 TT mile results ☀️☀️☀️=🚀

Firstly as always a huge thanks to our timekeepers and marshalls. They have been absolute rocks of our TTs this year. Ros Spencer & Tom Kelly timekeeping. Sam Upshall, Craig Weston & Andy Haas for marshalling on the corners 🙌

What we discovered tonight is super hot continuously dry weather, mixed with end-of-season fitness equals super quick times 🚀

Before I go into the top result, this week saw PBs for so many. Pep Neimeijer (25.00), Robbie Fall (25.13), Sian Mcpherson (26:43), and Colin Brumble (23:23)  all continued their great seasons with NEW PBS tonight 👊

There were also Personal Bests for Sarah Inwood (26:57), Oli Davies (24:56) and Ed Palmer (24:56). I’m sure I have missed a few but shout out in the comments if you hit a new quickest time.

The headline result tonight goes to Tom Day. Only a few weeks ago, Tom was the first person to smash through the sub-20 mark on the P459 course. Tonight, Tom became the first, and potentially the only person for a long time to go sub 19! He obliterated his previous best by over a minute in a time of 18:46, Chapeau 👏

At the top of the Premier division, PBs all round means the winner of the league will go down to the final the race, winner takes it all!😬

Tim Flynn took the quickest time on the night with 20:57. Close behind in second was Alex Rowling with 21:13. Taking third was Steve Pink in 21:27.

In the road bike league, fresh with his super slick new bike setup, Dan Newman had the quickest time with a 22:42 and a new PB. In second place and taking over 30 seconds of last week’s time was Daniel Paine. Rounding out the top 3 (you guessed it, with a new PB) was Ed Palmer with a 24:56.

Finally few shout-outs. Firstly the ever-present supporter, Keith Griffin, decided to give Time Trialling a go. Representing Swanage CC, on his first event rode a super strong 30:09. Hopefully we see you back racing next week! Also a shout out to Amy Yeoman. Her first TT on the P459 and she brought home a very quick 26:03 🤟

Next week is our last TT of the season. We’ll be starting this event at 6:45 pm. Make sure you get out of work early to join the season finale!

PW TT Results – 3rd August 🚀💨

Firstly a big thanks to all of our helpers tonight. Our crack timekeeping team Ros and Marcy. Our marshalls, the ever-present Andy Haas and club legend Craig Weston. Finally Sam Upshall and Stuart Ramsay helping organise riders on the line calling riders as they finish. We couldn’t have put the event on without you 🙌

 

Tonight it seemed like a lot of people had a rocket strapped to their bike 🧨🚀 With the wind blowing steadily from the South West, it created some great conditions for racing tonight!

 

To start, congratulations to Wessex RC rider Tom Clements. With a metronomic cadence, he tore around the P459 course in 20:31. A rapid time and the fourth quickest this year 🏆

 

In the battle for the TT leagues, Tim Flynn and Alex Rowling continued to trade places. Both taking the next quickest times on the night, 21:25 & 22:07. Only a couple of points separate the top 3, Tim Flynn, Alex Rowling and Steve Pink it’ll go to the last TT to decide the winner!

 

The road bike category win was taken by road racer Dan Newman, 23:07 was unmatched on the night. Shout out to first-time rider Daniel Paine. Only in the country for one week, brushing off the jet lag from his flight, puts down the second quickest road bike time of 24:04 🤟

Third and quickest female & Junior on the night was Holly Ramsey. Switching to the road bike Holly showed she is carrying some great form into the end of the season getting a 24:51 🥉 💪

 

To demonstrate that every second counts, fourth to seventh were separated by a mere 7 seconds. Ben Whitcher won the battle with a 25:02. Narrowly behind was the returning Kieran Graham in a 25:03, followed by Thom Rigden in 25:05 then Martin Cracknell in 25:09 #Squeezetotheline

 

There were also plenty of PBs tonight but to name two big improvements 💪 Ed Palmer took 1 minute 23 seconds off his PB and now has his sights firmly on a sub-25-minute TT before the end of the season. Hannah Mitchell also took 1 minute 11 seconds of her PB coming home in an impressive 32:24 on her second event 👊💥

 

Thanks to everyone who raced tonight and for making it a fun atmosphere. Only two more TTs left this season. Make sure you get signed up next week!

PW Climb Championship: Race 1 results 🚀

Who doesn’t love a Hill Climb? With an incredible bubbling atmosphere and cheering all the way to the top, it was a great evening of racing. All that was missing today were the cowbells (Next time!).

A brave 24 riders took to the start line to tackle the brutal but glorious Creech Hill Climb today. Thankfully a dry night and road for the 20% pitches that pepper the climb. The 2 to 4-minute effort was a serious lung buster to all of those involved.

A big thanks to all of the organisers and photographers tonight. Ros Spencer, Suzy Watkins and Jeremy Gill as our timekeepers.  A big thanks to Ben Ansell for making the event feel like day 1 of the Tour de France by holding riders up at the start.

The Juniors led the way today and showed everyone how to tackle the climb with 2 of the top 3 under 16. Oli Gill was the quickest on the night with an incredible 2 minutes, 36.2 seconds. Agonising 3.5 seconds back was Dan Newman with a 2.39.7. An effort that hard Dan could only collapse to the grass bank following the effort “Now the adrenaline has gone, I can feel all the nettle stings I got from collapsing on the roadside”.

George Mahon rounded off the podium with a super strong ride of 2.45.4. It was a close-fought battle for the final podium spot with only one-second splitting 3rd to 5th. Alex Rowling continued his fine form taking 4th with a 2.45.9 and Alasdair Hitchen, not feeling the effects of a recent wedding and honeymoon was 5th with 2.46.4

Other notable rides came from Rufus King and Robbie Fall showing they are mountain goats in road cycling with 2.50.0 and 3.26.4. Come the next hill climb in October the juniors could be packing out the top 10.

Chapeau to George Terry who loved Creech hill so much he took it on 3 times that evening!

Other close-fought battles on the night saw Michael O’Driscoll have one of the biggest smiles of the night when finding out he beat Ed Palmer by 0.1 second! 3.29.6 and 3.29.7. Mark Branford took home family bragging rights beating his son Daniel by a narrow 5.6 seconds, 3.50.4 & 3.56.1.

Thank you to everyone who helped and raced. Next Wednesday we’ll be back to time trialling on the usual P459 at 730pm.

 

PW TT Results 22nd June 🚀

Wednesday night 10 mile TT was the hottest of the year so far☀️🥵! It came with some absolutely rapid times from the riders who took to the start line.

Supported on the night by our crack TT support team, a huge thanks to Ros Spencer and Jeremy Gill for Timekeeping. The ever-present Andy Haas watching over Puddletown Road corner, Craig Weston for marshalling Wool Roundabout and Pete Watkins & Steve Fall keeping the start/finish line in check! We couldn’t get the TT on without you 🙌

In the Road bike Category, Alex Rowling,  strode to the quickest time and sneaked under 23-minutes and showed no signs of feeling the effects of a mid-season hiatus from studying.

Behind, Noah Miller and Michael O’Driscoll both set course PBs 👏

On the night Oli Gill was the quickest Junior with a hugely impressive 22:54! With back-to-back sub 23’s, Oli may soon be knocking the top two off the podium!
