Interclub Trophy

Wednesday 8th July 2015 saw the five local racing teams battle it out on the Levens 25TT course in blustery conditions. The trophy race was resurrected last year and this year all the organisation has again been done by Andy Barlow and the KVRC.
The fastest three riders times from each team are combined to give an overall result. LRC were represented by Derek Leggett, Craig Steele, Darren Brackwell, Dave Huck, Kieran Lacey, Peter Denness and Howie. Unfortunately ‘Captain’ Chris Anderson was unable to take the start line.
The fastest time was set by RYAN COULTON at 53:48 and the trophy was taken by CLEVELEYS with their top three making 166.31. Next in was LCC with their combined effort making 168:53.
A stunning 56:06 ride from 953 STEELE was good for 6th overall & helping to reduce our time to 174:37. We finished THIRD TEAM with Fastas, Howie and Kieran all cracking the hour. Daz went painfully close, and Pete not far behind. Derek put in a brave effort against some serious wind resistance.

KVRC were next team at 175:24, and BCW put in a good race with 177.
Notable local rider results were Adam McBirnie hitting 58:17, Peter Thomas at 56:59 and kudos to Glenn Rhodes riding fixed 1:04:42.

A big thankyou to Andy, KVRC, Mike Speight and everyone who put on a marshals bib, held a clipboard and did the maths, and all the work behind the scenes. It was another great night of racing.
Cheers, Howie.

Get your race face on because Andy Barlow at KVRC has spent winter co-coordinating a series of local club races for us all. There will be a mixture of local courses including the coastal 21TT, HCs & some other lumpy races you may never have tried.

The intention is to give riders a chance to test out new courses and a crack at club glory.

Not that we cyclists are competitive, but in a nutshell its a team event that pits all local racing clubs against each other in a simple points format. LRC, BCW, KVRC, Lancaster and Lune.  There has been a very kind donation of a trophy to be contended for.

The format is as follows.

Hilly Interclub

How it works.  Teams can bring as many riders to each race as they want. 50 points for 1st, 29points for second and so on  (Only interclub team riders gain points – LCC KVRC Lune Lakes BCW Cleveleys), the club with the biggest amount of points no matter how many riders they have, win the interclub hilly series. Mabel, Derek’s wife has offered a Trophy for the series.
