10th Dec REMINDER Xmas Club Run

UPDATE: 09:15 10/12/17:
It is with great regret, and for the first time in over 30yrs, we have to cancel the Christmas ride and lunch. The local roads are just too bad to even drive and this would definitely be a problem due to the location of the pub.
Watch this space for any further update on the meal.

45RC TT #18/25 - Whiston Hilly - 18 July 2017

.....and so another course record falls. In fact there were 2 riders who broke the previous record, but Andy Jackson now holds the record with a 24:16 just 4 seconds faster than George Fox! Both under the previous course record of 24:30 on not what I would have called a particulary fast evening for it. A progessivley increasing wind speed that would likely increase the riders work loads on the 4th quarter of the course, but they clearly overcame this. Fastest club rider on the night was Simon Fitzhugh, followed by junior rider Trystan Barnett who are progressively firming up on their 1 and 2 positions on the TT leaderboard. Well done to all, riders and helpers, thanks for supporting the club TT.

45RC TT #17/25 - 11th July 2017

TT cancelled due to seriously adverse weather.
Tuesday evenings have not been too successful for the A6 Bypass course this year! Yet again we have been hit with torrential cloudbursts and standing water making visibility dangerous for riders, very sorry for the late call, but we were there from 6pm until just before 7pm to see if it would show any signs of clearing up, but it just got worse I'm afraid!

45RC TT #15/25 - 27th June 2017 Results

Well we managed to run the TT tonight, despite the weather forecasts! 
Riders assembled on time and some good rides were had considering the general conditions.
All change in the TT Series table again, with Simon moving back to the top of the leaderboard and the junior rider Trystan making a big jump up to second place after his ride tonight.
Fastest time on the night was a superb ride by WCRT rider Jack Patmore who almost caught his minute man by the halfway point, and another great ride from 45RC junior rider Tristan Barnett.

UPDATE: 27/06/17 - 4:45pm
Well the current met forecast STILL says heavy rain here, but in Doddington it is STILL totally dry! The current forecast for the TT course is STILL showing torrential rain from 4:00pm so the TT is ON and I will be there at approx 6:00pm to open booking in.

UPDATE: 27/06/17 - 2:00pm
Well the current met forecast says heavy rain here, but in Doddington it is totally dry! The current forecast for the TT course is lightning and torrential rain from 4:00pm so I will wait until between 4:00 and 5:00 pm to see what is actually happening.

Please note that due to the ongoing carrriageway resurfacing that is due to continue on the A45 until 17th June, we are unable to use this circuit. We have made arrangements with the CTT and police to change these events to alternate courses and the club events calendar has beeen updated accordingly. 

So, tomorrows club TT is #15/25 27th Jun 2017, and will take place on the A6 Bypass circuit. First rider will depart at 7:17pm and the support team is TK: Mike Smith, PO: Fabos Young and Signs: Paul Bowman.

45RC TT #14/25 - 20th June 2017 Results

Results from the Salcey TT, round 14 of 25. We have a new number 1 on the club TT leaderboard

Fabos Young - Image by David BrownIt was a superb evening for a TT and a great many people probably chose not to ride based on the temperatures at 4pm, but on the course at 7pm is was a perfect evening for a 10TT! 

Some great rides took place, with Fabos Young again showed his class with a blistering 21:48s for his first competition ride on his TT bike and only 32s off the outright course record, beating young Jack Patmore who also did a very creditable 22:31s almost catching his father Martin, a superb effort. I'll bet they are both looking forward to riding on the A45 course in similar conditions, both could be joining the sub-20 10TT club! Another rider who also excelled was Junior rider Trystan Barnett with a cracking 26:13 taking over a minute off his PB.

Well done to all the riders that turned out, and especially to Hitesh Mehta, who took part in his very first TT and finished with a very creditable 31:09, and a 19+ mph average on his full weight  road bike.
