New Forest CC Club 10, 29/03/15, Results


Andrew Hanley writes......
The wet and particularly blustery conditions meant that only the brave and somewhat foolhardy ventured out to participate in the New Forest CC 2 up event on the popular P164 course, starting at Boltons Bench, heading to Beaulieu, before turning left to Ipley Crossroads and left again to Beaulieu Road Station. The committee decided that the conditions were not conducive for a safe 2 up event, so the reduced field of 13 riders went out individually. The windy conditions battered the riders with a gusting side wind on the first leg to Beaulieu, but it was the last leg from Ipley cross roads to Beaulieu Road Station that really tested the resolve and fitness, as a brutal headwind reduced speeds to barely over 10 mph. The pick of the field was again the duet of Steve Whitewick and Julian Jenkinson on the tandem in 23:17, whilst a titanic battle ensued between NFCC riders Andrew Hanley and Graham Lenton, with Andrew Hanley prevailing by a mere 7 seconds in 26:03 from Grahams’s 26:10. Richard Mason worked hard by break under the 30 minute barrier and made it in 29:42. Dave Eardley was fourth, followed by Paula Eardley and Catherine Pascoe made up the top NFCC six places.

James Atherton Memorial Road Race, Start List


'This Sunday see's the second running of the James Atherton Road Race, promoted by Southampton University. The 2/3/4 category race has attracted a strong field, with many riders unfortunately having to be turned away. For many, the race is the start of the road racing season and they will be keen to test their legs on the undulating course.
The race will consist of 8 laps of the Owslebury circuit, and although there is not one particular climb on the circuit that is particularly hard, riders will clock up over 5500ft of climbing over the 100km race. It is a rouleur's course, proved last year when a strong break broke clear in the closing laps, with Michael Cripps of the Army Cycling Union the eventual winner.
This year see’s strong entries from both local teams, including Portsmouth North End and VC St Raphael, as well as potential winners from the likes of Ride 24/7 and Danny Shane – Stork Racing. There are multiple riders on the start line that have already crossed the finish line in first place this season and this should make the racing even tougher.
All is set for Sunday, and despite the forecast seemingly predicting less fortunate weather than last year, we should be in for a great day of racing! The race will roll out from Owslebury at 11am, with the finish around 130pm. For the start list, see below.

New Forest CC CLUB 16, 22/03/15, Results



P334 16 Miles
New Forest CC held their ever popular 16 mile time trial starting from Balmer Lawn Hotel before heading towards Beaulieu and back via Lyndhurst to finish outside Hollands Wood camp site. 29 riders participated in the event and were blessed with clear blue skies after the earlier clouds had vanished. The competitors were subject to a stiff Easterly cool wind as they broke out of the tree line from Stockley Enclosure and headed towards Hatchet Pond. A cross tail wind eased the riders towards Lyndhurst, and Ben Boardman (38:54) once again took advantage of the conditions and fully eclipsed the field of NFCC riders by over two minutes from the in form Graham Lenton (41:14). Ben’s nearest challenger was Tony Green representing GA Cycles who pushed him all the way in a time of 39:08. Thomas Key from Southampton University made up the overall top three in 40:00. Ben attributed his fine early season form to his daily 35 mile commute to work and back. Nick O’Hara, Stewart Ward and Stuart Peckham finished within 20 seconds of each other to make it tight at the top, with Andrew Hanley finished off the top six. Clair Gronow was the first lady home from Paula Eardley and Catherine Pascoe in third. Thanks to Andrew Handley

Easter Track Meeting Cancelled as Palmer Park Venue Closes.


The Easter Track meeting incorporating the New KIngsbury Cup scheduled for Easter Sunday at Reading has had to be cancelled following the closure of the Palmer Park Venue. Organisers, Racing Club Omega, are not seeking to run the event on an alternative date but hope to promote the New Kingsbury cup in 2016.
British Cycling appointed an independent building surveyor to undertake a condition survey of the track and the infrastructure. In addition, in the past week a risk assessment has been carried out by the British Cycling Cycle Sport department. The findings of these separate exercises conclude that, in its present condition the track, surrounds and in particularly the fence, are unsafe for hosting formal British Cycling cycle sport events. The next stage will require British Cycling to discuss the upgrade recommendations with the council. For the avoidance of doubt, British Cycling will not sanction formal cycle sport events on this venue until further notice.'
The closure of Palmer Park is a double blow for the Southern region following the suspension of racing at Preston Park, Brighton, in January, due to safety fears. The Mountbatten Test Track, Portsmouth has also been closed for twelve months following the tragic death of Richard Phillips-Schofield in a racing incident last March.

New Forest News!


Boardman’s early season form continues writes Andrew Hanley……………
New Forest CC held the second Sunday morning events on the P337 course. The course starts at Goatspen near Burley and heads towards Brockenhurst, keeping left through Rhinefield, before taking another left towards the start on the A35. Sunday mornings conditions were not for the faint hearted as a stiff cold easterly, made the first leg of the course particularly testing for the competitors. A reduced field of 21 riders braved the temperatures, as New Forest CC member Ben Boardman again showed the form of two years ago by prevailing in fine time of 31:33. The first four riders finishing times were punctuated by minute intervals as Hugo Walters claimed second, Stuart Peckham third, and Graham Lenton a fine fourth after spending the winter on the turbo trainer. The men to beat however were once again Steve Whitewick and Julian Jenkinson on the rapid tandem roaring home in 29:39. For full results and time Trial programme visit the NFCC web site.
Martin Balk and Bob Jolliffe represented New Forest CC at the Farnborough and Camberley Open 10 TT on Saturday 14th March. The event was won by James Boyman in an impressive time of 20:37, with Martin and Bob recording times of 28:21 and 29:11 respectively.

New Forest CC Kick Off New Season!


New Forest Cycling Club kicked off their extensive Time Trialling programme for 2015 on Sunday on the challenging P334 course. The picturesque course starts at Goatspen car park, looping towards Lyndhurst down the A35 turning left towards Burley, before heading back to Goatspen. An impressive field of 30 riders participated in the event on a cold and dry morning taking the opportunity to shake off the cobwebs after the winter months. Ben Boardman from NFCC showed good early season form to win the solo category in a time of 24:16 ahead of last year’s NFCC club champion Stuart Peckham (25:21) and club runner up James Bannister (25.55). Adam Waggott, newcomer Nicholas Buck and Graham Lenton made up the top six, all within 30 seconds of the top three places. Paula Eardley was the first lady home in 37:38 followed by Catherine Pascoe (38:10). However, the NFCC riders did not have everything their own way as fastest home was the formidable duo of Steve Whitewick and Julian Jenkinson on a tandem ripping up the course in 23:22. For access to the Time Trial programme organised by NFCC in 2015, please visit the NFCC web site.

New Forest riders were present over the weekend for the two Time Trials organised by Antelope RT on Saturday and Sunday last weekend. The event on the Saturday was a 10 mile TT held on the Stockbridge Road course north of Romsey, the P140. The event was won in a blistering time of 21:23 by Robert Moore, representing Pedal Heaven Colborne RT. Nick O’Hara was the first NFCC rider home in 23:17, followed by Stuart Peckham (24:25), Martin Balk (28:32) and Bob Joliffe (30:03). The event on the Sunday was a two up on the same course won by Parker/Berogna VC St Raphael in 21:30, with Greeshields/Lorton and O’Hara and Balk finishing in 26:53 and 29:25 respectively.

In need of Inspiration?This Girl Can in Afghanistan!


In a country where women riding bikes are considered provocative and immoral, a national women’s team is gradually changing attitudes.
“Riding a bike is the most deep-seated taboo left in Afghanistan,” says Shannon Galpin founder of the nonprofit Mountain2Mountain dedicated to working with women and girls in conflict zones. “There are more women running for politics than riding bikes.”

Galpin is a Colorado-based American who travels to Afghanistan an average of three times a year to support and train with this handful of Kabul-based young women on the Afghan nation team. Despite bystanders hurling abuse and even throwing rocks, the girls have stood firm and continued to ride.

Using the bike to create change

Says Galpin: “They are not doing it to be revolutionary. They are riding a bike because they believe they have the right to. Why should a boy ride his bike to school in 15 minutes while the girls need one hour to walk there?

“These girls are not just racers, it’s not about competing, it’s about how do you use the bike to create change. Through the sport of cycling, these girls are going to normalise bikes for the rest of the country, enabling young girls to go to school on bikes and midwives to use bikes to access rural communities. Bikes literally can change lives.”

A single track mountain biker, Shannon Galpin was the first woman to mountain bike in Afghanistan in 2009. In 2010 she became the first person to cross the Panjshir Valley by bike. She had never seen another woman on a bike in the country until 2012 when she heard about the national team in Kabul.

These eight young athletes are fortunate to have the support of a (male) coach and their forward-thinking families. In some cases the fathers or brothers even ride with their family’s female athlete. “By doing this they are giving their stamp of approval,” marvels Galpin. “They are as much the heroes as the girls.”

She points out that much of the resistance comes not only from the men, but also the girls’ mothers, anxious to preserve their daughters’ honour. Some of those mothers have now admitted that they always dreamed of riding a bike when they were younger.

International competition

While high-level racing is not one of Shannon Galpin’s preoccupations, she says it can play a major role in encouraging acceptance of the sport for women.

“Things are evolving and people have seen the sport on Afghan TV. Two girls raced as the Asian Championships in Kazakhstan in 2014. The fact that they are riding can normalise bikes and the acceptance that it is not obscene.”

She would dearly like to enable at least some of the team to go to Rio next year to watch the Olympic cycling events, with a longer term goal of participation in 2020: “If we could even get one girl to Tokyo, flying the flag for Afghanistan….”

We are talking about a country where all women’s sport is fragile – the national women’s cricket team was recently disbanded – but Shannon Galpin is optimistic. As well as the team of six to eight women in Kabul, groups of women cyclists are starting up in other regions.

Their story on film

Liv, the cycling brand dedicated to women, has come on board with donations of bikes and equipment, and there is also strong support from Afghanistan’s National Olympic Committee.

“The work we are doing is insanely inspiring,” says Galpin, who has produced a feature length documentary “Afghan Cycles” due to be released in 2016. The documentary traces the story of these brave girls and their delight at having the chance to ride.

One of them tells the camera: “I am very proud of myself that I’m a cyclist.”

Her teammate adds: “They tell us that this is not our right to ride a bike in the streets and such. We tell them that this is our right and that they are taking our right away. Then we speed off.”

Gillingham & District Wheelers Invest in the Future!


March saw the launch of the ambitious new Gillingham and District Wheelers – Wheels of Dorset Race Team. Affectionately known as #Project1 by the management, they have set a clear goal of developing local cycling talent from grass roots through to senior ranks. In 2013 Mark Geddes began the Club Youth training in association with British Cycling as part of the London Olympic Legacy programme. This has now evolved to support the developing riders in a senior racing environment. The team is competing in local Road Races, Time Trials and Criterium events at regional level for 2015 with a view to stepping up to National Level events for the 2016 season and beyond. Team manager Mark Geddes said “Without doubt the club is growing and evolving and this felt like a natural progression to retain the quality riders we've helped to develope.”
Anyone wishing to get involved with coaching or racing should contact Mark Geddes or Charles Rees at Wheels of Dorset Bike shop in Gillingham. More info on WEBSITE

Fielding on Form at Ludgershall

I
Harrison Fielding (Unatt) won the final round of the Ludgershall Winter series on a wet and windy day on the Wiltshire test track. The former Poole Wheeler has spent much of the winter training in Spain, the eighteen year old has the miles in the legs, its all about finding speed now(and a team). Fielding says “ My condition is ok, at the moment I dont feel like I'm on brilliant form, I'm literally just coming of the back of hours and hours steady state work, so the ability to keep going all day long is there. The speed work is slowly starting to come into my training plan so should soon be getting some good form to hold onto for the year. I'm at castle coombe next weekend, and Wally Gimber on 22nd then James Atherton Road Race then after that little break for a couple of weeks, Three big races of the year that I'm targeting are the Rutland cicle, South region champs, and national under 23 champs.”

DHC Club Report

Race Report Ludgershall Winter Series Rd 9 Sat 28 Feb 15

A standard late February morning greeted our racers as they departed home for the Ludgershall circuit for the final instalment of the Winter Series. Grey, dreary skies with a constant drizzle and not a peep of sunshine, roll on summer racing!

As was the case for the last few races the 4ths were split in to odds and evens due to large numbers attending. The DHC boys all managed to secure places in the odds race meaning they could work together – this proved critical in the race.

Learning from his growing experience Matt stayed in the wheels for most of the race to preserve his strength for when needed – bike racing is not about going as fast as possible after all. Ed was up and down in the peloton and took a few turns on the front as did Lou.

Coming on to the last lap Matt was out in the wind toward the rear of the peloton; no body was letting him in, it seemed his race might be over. Step in Ed Rowe who had seen Matt was out on a limb, in an inspired and selfless move Ed sprinted hard past Matt to break the wind for him shouting at Matt to get on his wheel, Ed proceeded to drag Matt to the front of the Peloton exhausting himself and selflessly ending his own chances, chapeau indeed Ed!

After Ed exhausted himself Matt was able to jump on Lou’s wheel who again worked hard to pull the pair clear of the peloton, unfortunately the peloton caught the them, sensing his opportunity Matt mashed the pedals to jump on the wheel of another racer sprinting past, he stuck on the wheel and was only half a wheel from passing when the line came up. A massive result and second place achieved with great team play and supreme efforts from all three.

Matt 2nd.
Ed 12th
Lou 20th

In the 3rds DHC was represented by Andy and Gary, this was Andy’s second race in the 3rds, a definite but good step up from the 4ths – the racing being a bit faster and more aggressive, making it all the more enjoyable. The race panned out much as expected on the flat Ludgershall circuit, a few sporadic breaks were attempted but this week none stuck, all were sooner or later chased down by the baying pack. Due to his apparent lack of race savvy (intelligence?!) Andy took a few long turns on the front, dropping back in to the peloton to recover afterwards, maybe it will work one day… Gary had the sense to preserve his efforts staying in the wheels for the majority of the race.

At some point the heavens opened producing huge amounts of spray and muck to be kicked up from the track leaving the racers looking like Flanders hard men – it made for some great photos!

Coming on to the last lap Andy pushed his way forward in the peloton and was sat ideally at around 6th wheel coming down the back straight, a combination of allowing himself to be cut up by some aggressive riding and needing more work on his sprint saw Andy finish out of the points but happy with the race overall.

Andy 13th
Gary 18th
