TT Series round 10 Greetwell – Apparently there are lots of f’s in “Kirton Hill”

Round 10 is a another of the TT Series stand alone rounds in that it counts as a qualifying round of your 6 from 11 however the time isn’t included in your average time for the year due to the longer course.

SRC10/2 is a Scunthorpe road club 10 mile course that we’ve previously included as a handicap race at the end of the year and as a change from the usual course to see if the hills (up and down versions) throw up any surprises. 🙂 Spoiler alert – fast riders who train hard are still fast!  Read the rest of this entry »

Duathlon Results 9th August

Wednesday the 9th August was the 10th training race in the series, just one more to go and yet another season draws to a close.
38 competitors completing the 1, 14, 1. With 21 already qualifying for the series and a further 14 needing the last race to get the 7 in.
The series is still wide open with very few of the positions already decided.
The final training race is the 2, 11, 2 handicap.  
We hope to announce details of the presentation night at the race brief for the next training race, also a few changes that the committee are looking to make for next year. If you are unable to attend the next race then I will post any / all details on the next race report.
Once again I ask if you have any comments or issues with the attached results or with anything relating to the duathlons you send them direct to me at jeff.chappill@hotmail.com as I am unable (and unwilling) to pick these up off other forms of social media .

TT Series Round 9 – Its Pro time!

Round 9 had 23 riders show up for the LSQ10/2 course starting from the King William pub and condition were……good…ish! A slight chance of rain being the only spoiler with no one agreeing (as usual) which way the wind was blowing! Read the rest of this entry »

Duathlon Results 26th July

Wednesday 26th July 2017 was the night the Duathlon weather Gods pulled out all the stops with the rain stopping the minute the Gazebo went up to the minute it was put away.

44 athletes started (with one having to pull out with a mechanical issue).

Once again we must ask that all of those athletes who are able to run on the bank do so (some have been given permission not too due to injury) this is for health and safety and to make it fair. We do not want to start applying penalties to anyone, as that is not how we want to run the club but unfortunately if it continues we will have no alternative.

Once again many thanks to our time keepers and marshals, Wayne (potato man) Beedham, Sandra, Jeff and Tracy as well as Michael for the turn point. Oh and to Jason for er er er, well thank you anyway.

Please keep an eye on the forum as we will be announcing the date and venue of the Presentation night shortly. We will also be announcing some small changes to the cost of both a season ticket and the race on the day fee (hardcopies of all information will be made available prior to the last training race).

2 Training races left, both at Burringham, and please remember if you would like to make a donation to our chosen charity we will have the donations box with us.

Apologies for the previous error, please see attached revised results for training race 9.

TT Series Round 8 Legs of Steel

Ten warriors attended the annual legs of steel challenge on the Scunthorpe Road club hill climb course at Burton Stather.

The entry list shows a good selection of riders with Lincsquadders, Waifs and Strays (53/11), youth riders, first timers and old timers attempting the 0.3mile course. It still hurts….just not for as long 😉

Big thanks to Anna for taking over the role on the day as well as continued support from Cathy and Rob Walsh and our marshals.

Round 5
