Duathlon Results 19th April

Wednesday 19th April was the date, Normanby Park industrial estate was the venue with near perfect conditions for the athletes (turning a little chilly for the time keepers).

67 athletes turn out to conquer the slightly more demanding course. With a 0.9mile down hill run to warm up before turning and hitting the 0.9 mile run back up the same hill. On to the bikes for the 12.8 mile ride having to use most of the gears and negotiate some tricky little bends brings you back to the  second 1 mile run, again this has a nice down hill feel but is an out and back.

With only 14 seconds separating the top four places for the men, 11 of the top 12 men running the last mile in sub 7 minutes and 1 minute 20 seconds separating 10th and 25th places this is looking like it could be a difficult year to predict.

12 ladies complete the course with Emma Watts taking the lead, a close fought battle for second and third with Sarah just edging out Vicky. Worth noting is the amazing run times put in by Kerry, with calls from her sister to have her drugs tested.

Just like to say a big thank you once again to our time keepers, Wayne and Tom, Vicky and Sandra.

3rd May back to Burringham for the first of the three handicap races.

Please note the attached are provisional results. If you have any problems or comments (relating to the duathlons) please send them  to jeff.chappill@hotmail.com and do not post on the forum/ facebook

Lincsquad Track cycling

To all Lincsquadders,

Please see the attached policy on Lincsquads track cycling sessions. Lincsquad has and will continue to support Saturday morning track cycling at Quibell and to further develop this we may occasionally add additional taster sessions as we have done previously. These are always very well received and a single session allowing others to have a go at track cycling will not adversely effect any other training we currently run. As with all Lincsquad coached sessions the Lead Coach (as indicated on the rota) will be in charge of the session.

Both myself and Nigel (Youth Chair) are happy to discuss ANY aspect of Lincsquad and if not at sessions are easily contactable via email Chairman@Lincsquad.co.uk or YouthChair@lincsquad.co.uk

Track cycling coached sessions v1.0

Yours in sport

TT Series 2017 Round 1

Steve G still has “it”

Rumours of Lincsquad time trial stalwart Steve Grocock coasting to retirement due to youngsters with better hair styles and Aussie accents gaining on him were reduced (albeit only slightly) with the Britcon/OTCF Kona athlete maintaining his number one position at the TT season opener by a mere 2 seconds (21:44) from Scunthorpe Polys rider Richard Walker (21:46) with Julian Hesp 3rd (22:21) on the 9.8 mile LQ10/3 course.

Ruth Wilson was fastest lady (25:47) on her Spencer Engineering Felt DA despite a recent illness followed by Suzanne Szenher (27:13) and Jane Taylor (27:44) third.

With a significant cold crosswind many riders opted to only shed their coats right on the start line with Emma Watts (28:25) drawing the biggest crowd much to the disappointment of Sheehan Quirke (23:12) who not only had to rely on second hand accounts but was (fortunately) largely ignored as he removed his clothing.

Despite the potentially poor conditions many rider set personal bests no doubt due to the cancelled rounds of last year hiding the improvements gained by the dark art of effective coaching and training. The roll of shame of riders setting PB’s and lining up top push older lazier club chairmen further down the order is

Craig Day 24:36, Kev Lovett 24:54 Dan Ellis 25:38, Luke Stonehewer 26:07, Steve Enright 26:12, Darren Scutt 26:53, Pete Wilson 27:25, Jamie Moss, 27:53, Josh Blackley, Sharon Wilson 30:16, Rita Mooney 32;32 and Belinda Allen 35:37

As always a big thank you to our Marshals John Chambers, Amanda Clements, Paul McEwan and Stephen Cannings plus our TT team of Kerry “Raffle Queen” Padley, timekeepers Anna Gibbs and Jess Porte and the signing on team Rob and Cathy Walsh.

Next round in two weeks when no doubt more home made mint choc chip ice cream from the King Billy will be consumed to dull the pain of poor results.

Duathlon Results 5th April


Wednesday the 5th April was the first training race in the Scunthorpe Triathlons clubs summer series.

78 riders signed on and competed on a near perfect night weather wise.

There was a great mix of new and old faces from Tori Smaller taking part in her first duathlon to a return to the series of Lincsquad chairman Dave Hinch.

Steve Clark making his first appearance in a few years showed he has lost none of his speed and Dave Scott a true legend returns for yet again his “last season”.

This has the promise to be another great year for the Duathletes and the club.

Jason and I would like to thank Lincsquad for, once again, allowing us to post the results on their website.

Please see the results below, Note these are provisional results and should you have any queries relating to them please contact me on the following email address


No correspondence will be entered into on the Lincsquad forum

Training Race 2 will  be the 19th April at Flixborough industrial estate start 6.30pm

Lincsquad Ahead of the Game

Long Term Performance Development

Just over a year since its conception, Jeff Chappill reflects on current thinking within the sports coaching fraternity and the changes made within our training sessions.

Lincsquad Ahead of the Game

In February 2016 a presentation was made to the LincsQuad Youth Committee with regards the implementation of LTPD. This presentation was based around some of the details outlined in this handout. After a great deal of consultation with Coaches, Governing bodies and parents the committee took the decision to get “ahead of the game”. It saw that over the coming months and years the majority of the governing bodies will start to adopt the LTPD principles surrounding not only the training of Youth athletes but the way in which we target athletes of all ages and abilities.

After much research a rethink into how to coach fundamental movement skills (FMS) to children has come about. The evolved model promotes coaching FMS throughout a lifetime of sport and challenges opinion that strength training should be held back until children reach adolescence.

Every parent wants to do what’s best for their child.

And every coach will echo that sentiment, and profess to want what’s best for their performers.
