BMCC Hardriders TT results

There was a low turnout for the first club time trial of the year – the 22.34-mile Hardriders (course GS/981) on 12 March. Perhaps riders were put off by the poor weather forecast. But some good times were recorded nevertheless.

  1. Steve Kane – 58:16
  2. Jack Smith – 1:03:16
  3. Morgan Lewis – 1:03:19
  4. Juha Aaltonen – 1:08:09

Ride London 100 Team Event 2017

So congratulations to those lucky enough to be picked out of the helmet – and commiserations to those unlucky – if they had given us one more team nearly everyone would have been in so it was a close run thing

We were allocated just two teams

thanks Tony


British Cycling has allocated a limited number of places to affiliated clubs in the club challenge. Clubs with more BC members get priority – so sign up 🙂

It is likely to be oversubscribed and this time the club will in a ballot to win places for teams.

If we are lucky enough to win places then the club will in turn have a ballot of interested members for places.

Members who have supported the club / of have committed to supporting the club through marshalling etc. will have priority.


Each rider within the team must pay their own entry fee (£69) and complete their own online entry form.

A team comprises four riders
Every rider in a team must be a current British Cycling member
Teams can comprise four men or four women or a mixed team of two men and two women
Riders who hold an Elite or Category 1 British Cycling Race Licence are not eligible to enter the Club Challenge
Riders who have already secured an individual place through the original entry ballot or a charity place are not eligible to enter the Club Challenge

The Puncheur this Sunday 5th March

A significant numbers of Mitre riders are helping and or riding the event.

There will be a steady social paced group leaving the Ditchling HQ at 8-8.15am.

Some are talking of sub 4 hours gold standard ( tough in wind, rain and 1700m of climbing) and some are talking about the infinity foods brownies.  This may lead to two groups 🙂

See you there

2017 time trial details

Full details of all BMCC time trial events for 2017 have now been published.

Time trialling is a (relatively) cheap and straightforward way to really find out how strong a rider you are – and you don’t need to complete any sort of skills training to take part.

Courses range from flat 10-milers to double hill climbs on Mill Hill and Steyning Bostal. If you haven’t done a time trial before, why not make 2017 the year when you give it a go?
