Great achievement today for the C&CCC Team taking on the tough 25 mile U72 course between Maisemore and Ledbury, hosted by Gloucester Cycle Club.  Congratulations go to Jordan Wintle with a cracking time of 58:39 secs, closely followed by Ben Price with 58:46 secs and Gary Rickards (the oldie!) on 1:02:20.  The team won the event with an overall time of 2:59:55, so well done everyone.

Well the new TT season is starting for the club this Thursday (11.04.19) and with road works now completed from last year, hopefully we will not be blighted by these this season and we can all enjoy some good competition.

We kick off with an 8 mile race on the K39/8 from Orchard Industrial Estate but with the HQ at Teddington Village Hall.  Sign On is from 18.00 hrs to approx 18.40 hrs, and after the race we all return to HQ for complementary tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits.  So come on, support the club and if you have not done TT racing before, have a go and you may get hooked!  Remember the Leagues are provided to put you in a group of riders who have similar ability as you, so competition can be fair.  If you get within the top 3 of your League after 10 races (based on your best placings), then you win prize money, as long as you have also helped at an event, as this is a group and team effort.

Full details on our TT event pages ( follow this quick link: www.cheltenhamandcounty.cc/road/time-trialling/ )  and please read the Rules as we ride under the Cycling Time Trial Rules.

Happy Racing!

Congratulations to both Chris Booth and Ed Wilkins, who’s names were pulled out of the hat for their March contribution to ride leading.
As always you need to be in it to win it, so please look to support the club by leading a ride. Your name will then be put into our monthly raffle, where you have TWO chance to win a £20 LeisureLakes voucher each month.

 

C&CCC are hosting an open time trial on the morning of Sunday 28th April, using the U75 course (Cirencester to Seven Springs and back on the A435, finish at the top of Perrots Brook).
We need a few marshals to help out. Are you able to help? You’d only be needed from about 0900 to about 1030, so plenty of time to get a ride in afterwards. Please let scott know ( hitkey@yahoo.com) if you can.
The club will pay each helper £10 for their assistance.  Simply contact Jonathan Nicholls on our Contact page with your account details, and he will credit your account.
Alternatively, you also still have time to enter the event – here is the link https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/race-details/18575
