JULY SERIES – Event 4 July 25th – Results, Report and Series Review

26 07 2017

Event 4 was completed yesterday evening with strong fields in all 3 races.    Roadworks again put us on the Lightwood Green

circuit – we’re so lucky to have 2 otherwise we would have had to cancel three quarters of the programme

Weather conditions we’re excellent – warm and dry with no sign of the strong winds encountered last week

Results from Event 4 can be seen here 2017 July Results Event 4

Our next event is the 2 Day, 3 Stage Race on the 2nd and 3rd September.  A short time trial and a 30 mile road race on Saturday followed by a 60 mile road  race on the Sunday.   Full details are on the TLI Cycling website

Thanks are extended to all involved in this successful series – riders, marshals, lead car drivers,  the excellent Bike Marshals team, signing on staff, finish line officials, Audlem Guides and Brownies who helped with the catering, members who brought cakes etc, etc., Cheshire and West Mercia Constabularies – all in all almost too many to mention !!

See you all in September





JULY SERIES – Event 3 July 18th – Report, results and marshals for Event 4

22 07 2017

More traffic lights on the big circuit meant that Event 3 was on the small circuit again.    This week the weather was so much better – drier, sunnier and warmer – the only downside was a strong wind that was in the riders faces from Burleydam through to Adderley.

The better weather meant that more riders signed on so we were able to run three races – an arrangement much favoured by the riders

All three races were keenly contested – sprint finishes in all – sadly resulting in a nasty crash in Race 1 that saw riders hit the tarmac.  Two needed hospital treatment for cuts, grazes and sprains – wish them a speedy and full recovery

Race results are here    2017 July Results Event 3    Sadly riders are continuing to ignore the “white line” warnings so some have been disqualified !!!

Marshal rota for Event 4, 25th July is here    Marshal Rota Event 4     Please could marshals arrive by 6-20 pm for a full briefing

The final event of the series is next Tuesday  25th July when we hope for great weather and fast safe racing -see you next week





JULY SERIES – Event 2 July 11th – Report and results

17 07 2017

Week 2 saw traffic lights on the ‘big’ circuit  so we moved onto the smaller, Lightwood Green loop.   Three laps this time on somewhat dirtier roads following the rain earlier in the day

We were down to two groups tonight – the weather had obviously put a few off racing

Unfortunately we have had to disqualify some riders due to blatant infringement of the the requests to stay on the correct side of the road – see results sheet below for details

Results can be seen here 2017 July Results Event 2

For next week (18th) we hope to be back on the Woore loop but obviously other factors may influence this     Marshal Rota for the 18th is here Marshal Rota Event 3

Could I ask that marshals be at the Scout and Guide Hall, CW3 0AH, at 6-15 pm for a full and thorough briefing by club officials and the Bike Marshals 
Please sign in as usual on the “Sign on” sheets
Many have requested to marshal this event and those requests have been met
All other chosen marshals expressed no preference of week or gave no indication of non- availability.   As a result Audlem CC expects to see a full compliment of marshals for all events.    
(I’m afraid no correspondence will be entered into regarding this and a failure to show will jeopardise your eligibility to race in subsequent weeks or future Audlem CC events)
Many thanks – See you on Tuesday




JULY SERIES – Event 2 Tuesday 11th July

10 07 2017

Week one went well so lets hope for more of the same in Event 2 on 11th July

July Series -Event 1 – race report

7 07 2017

Warm weather, sunny sky’s, dry roads, plenty of riders, a full turnout of marshals, 5 motorbike marshals, 3 lead cars and 1 broom wagon…

The ideal ingredients for an evenings great racing – 3 fast races with bunch sprints in all finishes to decide many of the placings.  In fact in Race 1, despite having film from 3 different angles it was impossible to split 3rd and 4th place in the overall result.  A dead heat between Dan Brough and Matthew Lunt – hard racing !!

We look forward to the same ingredients next Tuesday (11th)

In the meantime overall and age categorised results for all three races are here 2017 July Results Event 1

1st,2nd and 3rd place in each category/age group receives a prize of £20, £15 and £10
