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 👏

For the TT bikes. it went right to the line with Steve Pink pipping Tim Flynn to the best time by 2 seconds, 21:32 and 21:34 respectively. In doing so, Steve took the record time set by a Poole Wheeler! The previous record set by Max Baldock of 21:33 had stood for 16 years!

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!

Grace Upshall was the quickest Under 15 with a 26:07 and Robbie Fall continued his week-on-week improvement with a 27:29 🤜

Next week we take a brief break to fit in our Hill Climb series! Come and join for 5 minutes exhillation climbing one Dorsets iconic climbs.

PW TT Results – 15.06

Last night was an incredible turnout! Thanks to everyone who rode, it was great seeing so many out wanting to race.

A big thanks to the support team last night. Ros Spencer Bev Wadsley & Jeremy Gill for time keeping. Our marshalls Andy HaasAlex Rowlingand Kieran Graham, and also Steve Fall for refereeing the crowd at the start line!

Last night was nearly the best conditions of the year. With 30-second intervals between riders, it also gave everyone that extra impetus to chase down the person down the road.

I wanted to focus on a middle-of-the-field competition. Michael O’Driscoll special request to set off 30 seconds behind Thomas Rigden. Thom was level to the challenge but was pipped to the better time by 3 seconds from Michael!

PBs were flying last night. Our Juniors taking PB’s all-round 🙌Robbie Fall continued his week on week PB take 7 seconds off this week.
The biggest improvement was Oli Gill. With an absolutely rapid time of 22:51, he took nearly a minute off his best time 🚴💨

Shout out to Paul Furey who also took a new PB and continues hiS week on week improvement!
Also, SNoah Miller took a new 
Road Bike PB hot on the heels of his 50-mile TT on Sunday.

Entries close Tuesday for the Gary Dighton Memorial 10 mile TT ⏰

Entries for the Gary Dighton 10 Mile TT close on Tuesday 14th June!

The race is set to take place Sunday 26th June on the P415, AKA Ski Slope ⛷. This is the 2nd open TT Poole Wheelers are hosting this year.

The course is renowned in the local area for being one of the quickest 10-mile courses in the South Region and Nationally.

Starting at the Audi Garage in Parkstone, the first 2km are a quick down before hitting a plateau and heading to the Bakers arms roundabout. With there usually being a tailwind for the return to the finish it can lead for some mega quick times 🚴‍♂️💨🚴‍♀️💨

This year we’re running a Road Bike, Tandem and TT bike category, with prizes for each one!

You can enter through these links on the CTT website:

It’ll be incredible to see a huge field of Poole Wheelers representing the club!

Looking forward to seeing many of you on the start line 🙂

PW 10 Mile TT Results 08.06

Another great turnout for the PW TT on Wednesday night!  Thanks for everyone racing and making this a great event to run.

Most importantly, the race couldn’t have gone ahead without the support of our marshall and Timekeepers, Ros Spencer, Suzy Watkins, Pete Watkins, John Vinson and Kieran Graham. Thank you for the support 🙌

Despite the strong headwind on Puddletown Road 🌪 Some Poole Wheelers easily shrugged this off to produce some great PB’s!

Grace Upshall produced a new power PB on her way to set a time of 26.30 and the fastest lady TT rider on the night 🥇

Another Junior making light work of the conditions was Robbie Fall. On his first-ever ride of a time trial bike, Robbie put nearly a minute into his best time setting a new PB of a 27.47 💪!

Shout out to Ben Ansell who also took over a minute off his PB with a little inspiration from our course guide, setting the fourth-best road bike time on the night with a 27.07.

Same time next week for Wednesdays TT. Lets hope for lest of a head wind!
