Moreton Race Series, Gault Gives Notice!


Jason Gault (Bournemouth Jubilee Wh) won round two of the Ride Moreton race series, finishing a bike length clear of the more established names. Gault, a winner from the blue group last year, has worked hard over the winter, stepped up to the scratch group and will be a threat for the overall.
Fifteen year old Ed Hatfield (UK BIKING) grabbed second in an exciting sprint finish that saw prolific winner Jay Eastwood boxed in with nowhere to go. Hatfield has been winning the U16 races at Goodwood for fun and he showed little respect the older heads and legs at Moreton, cheekily going off the front as the race came together with two laps to go. (It did not work this time but it will!) James Horton (Primera-sport.com) has been off the bike with a virus but just held off series organiser Steve Dring (UK BIKING) to take third place.
A full field of sixty enjoyed a perfect spring evening deep in the Dorset countryside followed by tea & cake in the newly opened village hall. On line entry is already open for next week’s race and also for the new, Women only mini-series. Starting at 18:40, twenty minutes before the men, the four race competition will run throughout June.

DHC Team Launch


DHC Racing - Team Launch This Weekend – 24th May 2015

Dave Harding Writes........
The DHC Race Team
This weekend sees the team launch of 'DHC Racing'. Dave Harding has been busy organising the re-launch of his team over the last six months. A big thank you goes out to the team sponsors. Several sponsors came on board early on to help financially. Dave is looking to repay their faith with an awesome looking kit and a bunch of enthusiastic road racers to fly their flag on the kit. I'm sure you agree the team kit looks awesome. Dave has assembled an enthusiastic and friendly team of racers; the emphasis being on team work rather than individual effort. The team is all inclusive and not elitist.
The DHC Cycle Club
The DHC cycle club is in its infancy at the moment but will play a larger part and more of a role within the ‘DHC family’ in the coming months. For those looking to race - a launch pad towards the team if you will. But the Club will also be a place for more relaxed club runs and training rides. The DHC cycle club will take on the other cycling disciplines such as Time Trials and Cyclo Cross etc. You can keep an eye on these plans at the DHC website as they progress.
Matthew Downie
A mention has to be made regarding team racer Matthew Downie’s recent racing achievement. Mathew took 3rd place and a bronze medal at British Cyclings regional men’s junior road race championships. Matt animated the race completely and was leading the race on a solo breakaway for three laps before being caught on lap 6. Unfortunately Well done Matt a great attacking race.
Team Launch
Team launch is this Sunday 24th May. Pics and press release next week. If you are interested in joining our ranks we would be pleased to hear from you. Contact details below.

New Forest CC Club 10,19/5/15,Report, Results


After the postponement of the last round in the 10 series due to adverse weather. Round three of the 10 series took place on Tuesday night on the unpredictable P311 course from Ringwood to Sopley and back. Although pan flat, the course rarely facilitates super-fast times. The conditions were cool and a stiff westerly wind gusted in, providing a test for the 33 riders. Division one aired an element of predictability as Ben Boardman again stamped his authority on the race for the division one championship with a competitive time of 22:37 ahead of Sasha Ring in 23:03. Third was tied between Stewart Ward and Stuart Peckham in 23:39. Ben was very pleased with the result as he and several other riders had ridden in the Wessex RC 50 mile TT over the weekend. First place in the division two competition ended in victory for Stephen Skinner with 25:23 ahead of the improving Peter Trunwit in 25:53 who edged out Phil Underwood into third. Darren Ridge (27:40) led home first in Division three from Peter Hawker and Chris Mills.

New Forest CC riders have been busy over the last two weekends participating in the ordeal that is a 50 mile time trial. Gary lock easily broke the two hour barrier at the Charlotteville CC event on 10th May riding the Bentley A31 course near Farnham in 1:56:28. Meanwhile 5 NFCC riders tackled the Wessex RC 50 on 17th May from Poole to Tolpuddle. As ever Ben Boardman led home the NFCC riders in a time of 2:01:20, from Stuart Peckham and Steve Skinner in 2:02:12 and 2:04:31 respectively. Graham Lenton recorded a great time of 2:07:30 ahead of Andrew Hanley and Martin Balk in 2:10:10 and 2:29:02 respectively

Regional Road Championships,Tough Love for Top Junior Billyard.


Despite a clinical victory for Jack Billyard (RP Racing Team) , father Peter will still be expecting some petrol money for the trip home to Devises, Tough Love at this age is always the best approach! Billyard had sensed the danger when Mattew Downie (DHC Racing) had gone up the road, his effort to reach Downie distanced the bunch with only Ashley Hutchinson having the legs to follow. Working well together the trio built a lead of over two minutes on a strangely disinterested peloton. A crash on lap two may have taken the steam out of the chase, five riders came down after hitting a pot hole.Lewis Martin (Fareham Wheelers) & Sam Wadsley (Poole Wheelers) both left skin on the road but both will fight another day. Billyard had raced the course the previous week at the Tour of the Milburys and timed his sprint to perfection allowing Hutchison to lead out before coming round as the clearly disappointed ST Raphael man faded. James Hywel-Davies escaped to take fourth place with Theo Webb (Velo Club Venta) winning the kick as the bunch finally came to life.
Rider Reaction
Jack Billyard "Matthew Downie was up the road going well so I knew I had to get up to him so I attacked and only theAshely came with me we worked for a lap until we got on. All three of us worked well and had about 2 minutes in the last lap. In the sprint I knew I'd timed it well from racing here last week so I was glad to get my hands in the air for the first time this year. Yea, the regionals has been a decent aim for me this year, today came at the end of a three week block of racing so it's nice to see the training playing off. I'd just like to say a massive thank you to my coach Martin Smith whom without I couldn't have won today"

Ashely Hutchinson “I am disappointed, I was on the front but I panicked a little and went too early and ran out of steam, I should have waited for to go, I have got a pretty decent kick on me so am pretty fed up. It split up quite early, it was quite a long way out but we worked well together, we knew we were going to stay away.”

Matthew Downie “I felt really good, no one seemed to want to work so I took it on attacking on the steepest hill, with the restricted gearing I knew I would have the benefit going downhill. I stayed away for a lap before the other two joined up. We worked well ,thru and off and by the bell we had a two minute lead. From there it was sort of playing around, I was fairly confident in the sprint but it was a fiar result”

Regional Championships,Ashton Takes Southern Title!


Kimberley Ashton (Casp Racing) deservedly won the southern region road race champs on the tough Owslebury circuit in Hampshire. The 27 year old channel islander was clearly the strongest, first breaking away from the field then dispatching her four breakaway companions in the 52 mile race. Corrinne Clark (Ride 24/7) made the move that decided things, Ashton & Gillian Taylor (Fusion RT/Gear Club Bike Science) followed Clark . Olympic development programme (ODP) rider Rebbecca Raybould (Poole Wheelers) was expecting a move and used her track speed to get across and it was game over bar four! Taylor was the first to go, dropping off the back, the hills and the pace set by Ashton proving too much. Ashton applied the pressure again to get rid of Clark before Raybould inevitably cracked leaving Ashton to enjoy a solitary final lap. Clark bravely fought her way back to Raybould, then dropped the 17 year old to take the silver medal. The luckless Hayley Preston unshipped her chain as the flag dropped and spent a lonely couple of laps chasing before throwing in the towel.

Rider Reaction
Kimberley Ashton “I felt pretty strong, the first few laps I thought there is gonna be some eager beavers around so I just let them crack on with setting the pace, halfway through I knew it get a bit sapping so then it would be time to make a move. Each time up the main hill people were dropping off. The course suits me its tough,draining. The four of us were working well, Gillian (Taylor) stopped working, she was tired, so we got rid of her on the hills, I thought right, its time to move. I was always looking behind, I am very pleased,I don’t win much on the road,back home we race with the guys and its costly getting to the UK”

Corrinne Clark “Very pleased, I will settle for second, very happy considering it is only my second road race. Kimberley was doing loads of work, she is a machine! I got dropped but fought my way back to Rebbeca(Raybould) Kim had gone, I attacked and just kept going”

Rebbecca Raybould “I just died at the end! We got away pretty early, three went off and I jumped across, I thought a group would go. I wanted to race to win really but the pace & distance caught me out I did not really have the legs, Kimberley was just so strong, she never looked tired, she was always talking, we were just rolling through struggling”

Southern Region Champs, Stockdale Wins in Hampshire


Ben Stockdale (Sport grub Kuota) won the Southern Region road race title, showboating to victory after seeing off the challenge of Tristan Robbins (Madison Genesis). Stockdale, who had a dig in the first few miles, had forged ahead with Robbins after 70 of 84 miles, taking the race to the Madison Genesis rider on the climb of Lane End Down. The pair was joined by James Phillips (Dream Cycling RT) & Will Bjergfelt (Sport grub Kuota) with two 7.5 mile laps remaining.
The numerical advantage was with the Sport Grub boys along with the pressure of expectation. However, if there was any pressure it did not show as they took turns to attack the tiring Robbins. “Go Stockers, Go” shouted Bjergfelt as Stockdale got the gap on Belmore Lane. Never looking back the 25 year old from Lower Swell, Gloucestershire powered away and was able to relax and enjoy the moment. Former two-time “Divs” winner Will Bjergfelt settled for third place behind winter training partner Robbins , the youngster holding off the in-form “Bjergy” in the sprint for the line.
Bjergfelt, Colin Parry (Ride 24/7) Malcolm Dixon, Craig Wallduck (Dream Cycling RT) & Mitch Webber (Pedal Heaven RT) had opened up a small gap on lap four and when former UK ironman triathlon champion, Daniel Halksworth (Velo Sport Jersey) fought his way up to the break, alarm bells were ringing in the bunch.
One lap later, again on Lane end, it was Stockdale who stretched the bunch out, making contact with the leaders over the top. Robbins had followed the move and the break swelled to ten with Andrew Syme (Primera-sport.com) the last to get on.. The rolling Hampshire course based around the village of Owslebury (pronounced Ozzleberry) continually asks questions which the dwindling bunch found increasingly difficult to answer. Up ahead Stockdale had the answer, testing the legs of Robbins before his teammate joined and changed the odds.

Ben Stockdale “Well, it was a hard day out, a very tough circuit, pretty much going up and down all day. We had a chat this morning, thought we would go early but it seemed to take quite a while, when it came down to the four of us, it was only a matter of time really before one of us got away, it was just which one. When I got to that final corner I knew if I had a gap that would be it”
Tristan Robbins “It was a long race, I decided to save energy for the first bit then try to jump across to the break, then jump out of the break. I was suffering quite a lot when Ben attacked on the climb, I was working hard. Having been broken I was trying to save what I could to try and get second and I was pleased to get the sprint”

Will Bjergfelt “I had the early break covered but I was also conscious Ben would come across at some point so I did not want to work with it or commit to it, I did not want to burn all my matches. You can’t mess it up really When there is two of you in the break you can’t mess it up, it comes back to the team, I have won it twice before, it is nice for Ben to win it”


James Phillips “Bloody hard, I was in the early break doing a lot of work, we got caught which was frustrating, I attacked again and only Will (Bjergfelt) came with me, he said he would not work with me, fair enough,Ben was up the road, so I put my head down Will did contribute when the bunch closed and we caught the two leaders. These boys are doing these mile week in, week out I did not really have the legs on the last lap I could not go with the attacks. It is a tough course, I like it nice and hard, it drops the people hanging on”

Colin Parry “All the organisation went out of the group when Ben & Tristan went away, it was a case of trying to salvage a top ten place”

Grant Bayton “ It’s a hard mans course, it deserves a worthy winner”

The championships were a joint promotion from Portsmouth North End CC & Fareham Wheelers, with the Women & Juniors starting at 09:30 and the seniors off at 13.00 it was a long hard day for commisaires and marshalls alike, something Ben Stockdale thanked everyone involved with in his acceptance speech.
