George Harper Wins Severn Bridge, ONEPRO CYCLING Win Again! Report, Reaction.


George Harper celebrated his first win in over a year at the 60 mile Severn Bridge race, as ONEPRO CYCLING continues to dominate the early season. Harpers victory along with team wins at Perfs, Clayton Velo & the Devon Primavera have made it an all-conquering debut for Matt Prior’s team. Confidence is high, the excitment of the team launch, the new kit unveiled, a berth on the Pearl Izumi Tour Series announced, a piece of cake this cycling lark! No doubt sterner questions will be asked as spring starts to bloom, disappointments will have to be faced, the true test of morale but for now ONEPRO CYCLING have all the answers and as road captain Yanto Barker says “You can only beat who turns up”
Harpers win came after he and Will Bjergfelt (Sport Grub KUOTA) had bridged across to Barker and 18 year old Eddie Dunbar (NFTO) with three, six mile laps remaining on the Chew Valley circuit near Bristol. The climb of Stowey Hill, tackled ten times, would shape the race, forcing selections and dishing out suffering to early-season legs lacking race miles! Young Eddie Dunbar had energy to spare on the two mile climb, snapping up the King of the Mountain points and pulling away a strong group of ten that the bunch would never see again.The gap would eventually go out to more than three minutes. Dunbar and Harper had already enjoyed a few miles off the front before this decisive break
The youngster would certainly have benefited from the older head and stronger legs of teammate Rob Partridge who was amongst the ten but a mechanical problem forced Partridge to chase and left Dunbar outnumbered.
It was though, Dunbar again a couple of laps later, taking an unassailable lead in the King of the Mountain competition and opening a gap that only Barker could or would close. Harper and Bjergfelt worked hard to get across the gap, Harper was rewarded well for his effort, Bjergfelt would pay for his but thoroughly deserved fourth place.
Rider Reaction
George Harper “With the hilly course we knew Eddie Dunbar would be keen for the win but we basically focussed on getting a rider in every move, always moving forward, I was feeling really good going into the race, my training has been amazing, Steve Benton is a great coach, so my form has been better than it ever has been so I knew I was not going to struggle even though my legs felt a bit wobbly at the start. We were in a break of ten with teammates behind we knew the move was good, me Marcin and Yanto, there were three NFTO there but Rob (Partidge) had a bit of bad luck which was good for us. Yanto and Eddie chipped off up the road and got a minute, I had every faith in Yanto to finish the job but it was better for us to try and get numbers on Eddie, the safest option was to get across, I did not know if I could do it, it took us ten minutes to get over, Yanto saw me coming, I waved. We knew we needed to get rid of Will (Bjergfelt) to make things simple, Yanto did a massive effort, it almost cracked me but it got rid of Will.
I spoke to Yanto on the road and we agreed the sprint was good for me; it was pretty straight forward from there. It is my first win for eighteen months, I needed the win, I have had good form and I have been capable but just a lack of confidence”

*Harpers last win came at the Guildford Criterium 2013

Yanto Barker “You have got to be happy with that, a solid performance; we did not put a foot wrong. I knew George was coming across, I am expecting someone to come across, they are all talented boys. Eddie was taking the primes quite enthusiastically, I was a bit nervous but I am a turbo diesel these days, the longer the race goes on the better I feel. He gapped me at the top of the hill but I was not panicking. I was happy when George came across I was also keen to keep the variables to a minimum and that meant getting rid of Will (Bjergfelt) so it was just two against one, it’s part of having a strong team. I know what we are doing, we have the power meters and I know what other people will have to do to keep up. We are both fairly quick in the sprint but with a bit of a rise like that it probably suited George, he is a class bike rider and I think you will see him win a few more times this year”

Eddie Dunbar “ I am happy enough, its always nice to get a win but considering the riders that beat me have been racing for three weeks and this is our first race. Myself and Lloydy rode very well, Rob (Partridge) had a mechanical, if that had not happened the result may have been slightly different but in fairness to ONEPRO they took advantage of it and came out on top, hopefully in the next few weeks it will be us. I was hoping the two of us would stay away, I thought I would get the better of Yanto on the hill but I knew George Harper was coming which prevented Yanto from working, I was kind of left on the front. There are bigger fish to fry in the coming season so I am happy where I am”.

Will Bjergfelt “It was tough, I am a bit emotional actually, I moved house only forty eight hours ago, yesterday I was fitting carpets in the kids bedrooms. I have a lot of confidence in my ability at the moment, I have trained really hard over the winter, I have been on the track, lightened up and have not ridden any cross, really concentrated on the road and its made a big difference, I have a really strong team around me, fantastic equipment and I am full of confidence that I will have my best year this year. George and me got across, George was strong, as soon as Yanto saw us coming across he sat up, which is what you do as a teammate, that put Eddie on the back foot but Eddie is amazing for his age, so young, so talented, he has a great future in front of him”

Marcin Bialoblocki “ A very good race, we won again, It was not too hard, I am going really well”
Rory Townsend “ I was in the right place at the right time, we were working well for a few laps then things started to break down, every time up the climb Eddie Dunbar was clipping off and doing a good job, it’s the first time I have raced with him and he lives up to his reputation”
Dave Povall NFTO manager “The team have always committed to supporting good regional races and races close to home. We just wanted to blow the cobwebs away, the team have just come off of the back of a very, very hard five day block of work, we did not even give them an easy day Friday, we pushed them on, it’s nice to come and show our support, respect to the Severn Bridge race but we have other aims and objectives for the season, of course it would have been nice to win, Yanto did not pull a turn for Eddie for one full lap, Eddie is a first year senior, if I was managing Yanto I would have expected him to do exactly the same, we are racing you know. Maybe they have different aims; maybe they are targeting regional races for a couple of headlines. It’s a tough ask for a boy who is only just Eighteen, they are going to ride another 70 km home now.”

Moreton Road Race Series Returns in 2015,Popular Series to Includes 4 Women Only Races



UK-Biking is very pleased to announce the details of the 2015 Moreton Race Series.
New for 2015, the Moreton races will be part of the new Dorset Cycle Racing League, with all races providing Dorset League Points. This replaces the Series competition of previous years, which means there will be prizes awarded for each race on the night instead, which are being generously provided by RideBike Poole.
Also New for 2015 is 4 women-only races, which will take place before the main races in June. The women's series is sponsored by Copyrite. We are hoping these races will be well supported by the local lady racers and will help boost women's road racing in the area.
We will be continuing with our marshalling system, which requires each series rider to volunteer (or bring a volunteer) for marshalling one race and are able to pre-book their preferred date(s) via the marshalling system on the website. Without enough marshals the race can't go ahead!
Online entry will go live for the first round a few days beforehand. We will announce the exact date and time nearer the event.

Hate to do this but at this time I do not have sufficient entries to cover the cost of hiring Newport Velodrome never mind pay levies and so on. My understanding is that I have to pay up or cancel by 3rd March or I will be liable for the costs, which I cannot cover.
SO... if you know of someone who might like to enter, if you were thinking of entering, or definitely entering and just haven't got around to it yet, PLEASE do so before the 2nd March so that I can avoid having to take this dreadful action.
I decided to promote this even because so many riders said they wanted the Omnium to come back to Newport and Juniors wanted more events of their own and seniors more events they could enter without travelling 4hrs or more to compete. (The hope was to look at this being a permanent fixture in the future.) However, those verbal/written requests have not translated into sufficient entries as yet... but if I don't get at least 10 more entries by 2nd, I don't see I will have a choice.
Yours in Sport,

Kay

Bournemouth Arrow Open Trackfest 2015!


Bournemouth Arrow Announce Programme for Summer Track Fest

Bournemouth Arrow Open TrackFest
Saturday 11th July 2015
Bournemouth Track
From 11.00am
The 2015 Arrow TrackFest will be a game of two halves:

The first half sees a series of events suitable for both experienced track racers and Newbies who are just getting into track competition. It comprises 3 events that are each physically challenging but don’t require a lot of bunch racing experience. They are a flying 200m individual TT, a flying 1 Km Team Sprint (3 riders with no restriction on distance at the front) and a 4 Km Team Pursuit (4 riders). The “Team” events will be open to club and composite teams and can include a mix of categories within each team e.g. 1 youth rider, 1 woman, 1 senior in the flying Team Sprint. There will be a “no tri-bars” rule so all teams are on a level (less technical) playing field, a key feature being how each team balances any ability mismatch within the team. These events are aimed at encouraging regular track riders who may feel they are not ready for the challenges of bunched races but want to sample competition. The Entry Fee for these events is Seniors £10 postal (£15 on the day), Youth £5 postal (£10 on the day). Interest will of course be focused on which local Club or Team comes out top. Clubs and Teams can of course enter multiple teams.

The second half comprises a more traditional mix, Sprint Finals for the fastest riders in each category taken from their 200m qualifying times plus Scratch races for each Category with a hint of Elimination in some, plus of course a Finale 20Km. The TrackFest is open to Youth C/D/E, Youth A/B, Women and Seniors. The Seniors will be split into A and B races on merit. The Entry Fee for the full TrackFest is Seniors £20 postal (£25 on the day), Youth £10 postal (£15 on the day).

In summary the TrackFest offers the exciting prospect of 3 events for Track Competition Newbies, and at least 6 events for Track Competition regulars, all in a pretty packed 4 hours!

Advance Entries by Sun 28th June to
Alan McRae, 171 Coppice Ave, Ferndown, Dorset, BH22 9PW

Bournemouth Town Centre Criterium Axed!


Justin Hoy Wins Bournemouth Criterium, 2013

After just two years the Bournemouth Town Centre Criterium has been axed. Budgetary constraints is the reason given for axing the Criterium from the Wheels festival, monster trucks, supercars, motocross, F1 Cars and a classic vehicle pageant are all unaffected by the lack of funds. The festival though, will feature a nightglow cycle ride and BMX stunts. The 2013 race was run as a stand-alone event in July and included a corporate challenge, a supporting race and an elite race. In 2014 the Criterium featured as part of the towns Wheels festival in May, however the supporting race was dropped leaving just the corporate relay and elite race. “Local Riders, Local Races” understands that Bournemouth Council had held preliminary talks with organisers, Sweetspot with a view to bringing a round of the prestigious Tour Series to the seaside town but was unable to agree on a date. Ryde, on the Isle of Wight, announced two weeks ago that the town will host the televised Tour series on May 14th. While Bournemouth turns its back on bike racing other towns in the south are keen to be involved, Winchester will hold a day of Town Centre racing in June and Wilton will once again host the British Cycling, Cycle Wiltshire GP Elite road race.
