VCB Hill Climb Champs 2017

Sunday 1st October 2017

A small entry than normal of six riders took on Belmont Hill last Sunday. This was due to some members still racing and other general commitment clashes. However the weather behaved and the group met up and rode out, plus stopping off for a well-earned coffee at the Bristol docks on the way home! Congratulations to Toby for retaining the title.

1st – Toby Smith – VCB – 3mins 30secs
2nd – Simon Jennings – VCB – 3mins 38secs
3rd – Rob Sutton – VCB – 3mins 57secs
4th – Kieran Murphy – VCB – 4mins 5secs
5th – Sorrel Williams – OutdoorTraders Race Team – 5mins 6secs
6th – Mark Bishton – VCB – 5mins 29secs

Thanks to Steve Ashlin and John Turner for timing and pushing off.

Deacon Cutterham did a great ride to finish 3rd (Bronze Medal) in the BC Master Scratch Race over at the Newport Velodrome. Noel Waldron, Mark Hughes and David Rutty have been racing on the local circuit with numerous top 10 results.

On the events front congratulations to Mark Bishton for completing Wales Veloton and just yesterday, both Michael Robinson and Kieran Murphy completed the iconic L’Etape de Tour.

Well done all, keep the jersey out there whether just riding your bike or competing!

VCB Evening TT Series Results

Tuesday 18th July
U103 12.1m TT

Yay!!! After having to cancel the last 7 TTs we were finally able to hold another event on the U103 12.1 mile TT.

The hero of the night was Dr Kerfoot – he made a school boy error by setting everyone one off one minute early, but he fully redeemed himself by doing time keeping, setting off and working out all of the results. He also let me borrow his pedals and shoes, and he phoned the marshals so they knew what was going on with riders. He was a super star, and to top it off he has surprisingly neat hand-writing for a doctor!!! Cheers Doc!
Big thank you to everyone that helped out – Andy Higginson, Si Davis-Savage and Mark Bishton for manning the roundabout. Alex for sorting signing on. Ken, Phil and Martyn for setting off and timekeeping. Now down to the results, total of 15 riders raced.

Road season underway for VCB

This weekend saw Toby Smith and Kieran Murphy represent the club in the Bristol South RR. It’s a tough one to start with – 8 times up Stowey hill..! Both did well but unfortunately Toby got caught up in a crash need the end and Kieran suffered with cramp on the 7th time up.

Further afield – Nick Tomkins rode the Echelon Vets RR finishing a credible 6th place in his first race of the year.

Earlier in the week Matt Dale and Deacon Cutterham rode the 2/3 crit over at Maindy Track, Cardiff on Wednesday evening. Matt found the pace a little too much for his first outing, but Deacon managed a top ten placing with 9th.

Well done to everyone and lots more to come no doubt in 2017!
