Guernsey VC Club 10's Results:Racing Returns to the British Isle's!


A successful weekend's racing!

Alex Margison writes………The field was split into two heats to satisfy maximum gathering size rules, with one on the Saturday morning and the other at the same time on Sunday. Weather conditions were pretty similar both days, warm and sunny with a gentle to moderate Easterly meaning a tailwind off the start line and block headwind on the way back round the final bay to the finish.

Fastest on Saturday was Seb Tremlett with a very creditable 20:02 given the foot down start, just outside his own course record of 19:55. Marc Cox posted Sunday's best time and the second fastest of the weekend with 20:23, whilst Trinity Racing's Sam Culverwell recorded the third fastest time with 21.39 on a road bike.

Karina Bowie was top female with 23:54, fractionally missing her own course record of 23:53. Among the the HSBC/Ian Brown's Cycle Shop Academy riders, top male was Thierry Le Cheminant with 23:12 and Kylie Vaudin was fastest junior female with 25:59.

It's been an amazing team effort between the Club and the Guernsey Sports Commission to restart racing on the island this weekend, with Club President Mark Smith putting in the hours to ensure everything ran smoothly and in accordance with our local lockdown exit framework. It felt a little strange not having a minute man to chase down given that fastest riders went off first at two-minute intervals, but it was just a pleasure to be out in the sunshine racing again.

Racing Finally Returns to the British Isle's: Guernsey VC Club Time Trials


Racing finally returns to the South this weekend with the Guernsey VC Club 10. Thought to be the first racing in the British Isle’s since the start of the Covid 19 lockdown measure’s since March 23rd, the Guernsey Velo Club will run 10 mile time trials on both Saturday & Sunday. The Cobo Bay course on the West Coast starts at the South end of the Bay and heads down the coast to Rocquaine Bay and then back up again to the finish at Albecq. Fairly flat the whole way, with a small rise around Albecq headland just after the start and dead turn at the halfway point. First rider off at 06:45 then 2minute intervals with fastest riders first in the interest of social distancing. Current course record is 19:55 held jointly by Seb Tremlett & James McLaughlin. Saturday’s race includes Guernsey Commonwealth Games riders, Jack English (pictured) & joint course record holder, Seb Tremlett, another games competitor James Roe rides on Sunday.
Guernsey Velo club treasurer Alex Margison told us..
We haven’t had any new cases of Covid on Guernsey for 28 days now, and there are no known cases in the Bailiwick currently, so we’re moving to Phase 4 of our lockdown exit strategy from midnight Friday/Saturday which includes the resumption of non-contact sports. All going well, Phase 5 is a maximum of 8 weeks away and will see the resumption of road racing, MTB racing & our hopefully Academy and Junior training & racing leagues, but I’m afraid travel restrictions won’t be lifted until Phase 6 so the opportunity for off-islanders to come over & race is limited!” Margison added “ I wont miss Zwift this weekend

Local Clubs Turn to Virtual Racing


As the Corona Virus pandemic takes hold and British Cycling have suspended all sanctioned events including club activities, local clubs are turning to virtual reality racing to replace traditional group rides. The governing body continues to advocate riding bikes, in fact actively encouraging it as a way to support the community but will not support group riding: “Our recommendation to clubs is that no organised activity (including rides, training, coaching, events) should take place during this period, in line with government advice on social gatherings on non-essential travel” reads the British Cycling website. In light of this, Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers, Poole Wheelers, New Forest CC and other local clubs have started to replace regular group rides with racing on Zwift. There are races for all levels of riders and, without having to leave your own home you can pin a virtual number on, it is easy to adhere to social distancing advice, avoid group riding and still stay in contact with your club mates.
Races in Zwift are usually organised into categories from A to D with A being the fastest. Although there might be racers of other categories visible, you’re only usually competing against other riders in your category. Of course Zwift has been around for a while gaining popularity long before Covad-19 threatened outdoor riding but we could be getting a glimpse into the future. Older cyclists have been self isolating for years, it goes with time trialling territory. New generations of bike riders have grown up with social media, platforms that promote distancing, so there should be few problems, surviving on virtual café’s and virtual cake may be the biggest challenge.

Covid-19: TLI Statement


TLI Cycling

URGENT Announcement Re Coronavirus and Competitive Events:

Monday 16th March 2020

Dear TLI Cycling Member,

Given today’s updated guidelines from the UK Government and the significant changes in the transmission and infection rate of the virus, it is with sincere regret that:

TLI Cycling is suspending all competitive events with immediate effect.

This decision will be reviewed in two months’ time, at which point, depending on national circumstances, it will either be lifted or extended. I’m afraid that an extension looks more likely at this point in time.

I am really sorry to be the bearer of this news, especially given the quality of the 2020 Racing Programme and the massive contribution to date by our Organisers, supported by Rider HQ.

I also appreciate the time, effort and anticipation that all members will have put into getting ready for this season.

Obviously World events have overtaken all of us. Please do look out for one another, especially our older members and those with health concerns. Enjoy your cycling, preferably solo, while we are still allowed to exercise outdoors. It’s good for you!

Thank you for supporting TLI Cycling.

Kind Regards,

Nigel Harrop, National Secretary (On Behalf of the National Management Committee)

Covid-19:Cycling Time Trials Statement


In light of the government advice now given, Cycling Time Trials (CTT) has taken the decision to suspend all CTT events, (this includes all Type A and Type B events), with immediate effect up to and including Sunday 31 May 2020.

The decision will be subject to continued review and has been taken in the interests of organisers, competitors, all those who volunteer their time to make the events “work”, supporters and in the interests of the time trialling community as a whole.

Where possible, all are encouraged to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.

CTT will continue to review and monitor government advice and will provide detailed updates in the coming weeks.

Social distancing and advice

Social distancing measures (as defined by Public Health England as spending more than 15 minutes and within a 2-metre distance talking to someone) are now advised not only for those who test positive or have symptoms, but in day to day life. The government is advising anyone with a “new, continuous” cough or high temperature and those they live with that they need to self-isolate to help prevent the spread of the virus.

guidance on coronavirus from the NHS is available here.
guidance can be found on the government website here.
Wash your hands

The World Health Organisation advises that all should wash their hands properly to avoid spread of coronavirus. WHO advise that one of the best and most basic protective measures that people can take against the coronavirus is to wash your hands frequently. On its website, WHO states: ‘Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.’


Covid-19: British Cycling Statement


British Cycling guidance for Covid-19 attached:

Based on the Government’s latest advice and guidance on the developing situation around Coronavirus/COVID19, British Cycling has suspended all of its sanctioned, cycling activities, initially until April 30.

This includes (but is not limited to):

- Competitive events at all levels - Non-competitive, registered events (eg sportives, reliability trials) - Recreational rides (throughout our suite of programmes including HSBC UK Breeze, HSBC UK Guided Rides, HSBC UK Ride Social, Let’s Ride Pop-up) - All educational courses or activities (eg coaching courses, Ride Leader courses, commissaire courses)

The decision has been taken based on Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s caution against unnecessary travel and contact with others, to take the necessary steps to protect the health and wellbeing of riders, officials, volunteers and spectators, and alleviate the risk of an additional burden on the emergency services at what is a hugely testing time.

We would strongly encourage all levels of the cycling community to join with British Cycling and the rest of the country in doing all we can to halt the spread of the virus in the midst of what is an unprecedented situation, however we recognise that this news will be disappointing, and potentially worrying, for some.

British Cycling chief executive Julie Harrington said: “This was not a decision taken lightly and it is one we have taken in close cooperation with our colleagues at Scottish Cycling and Welsh Cycling.

“We fully understand and appreciate the financial, social and community impact that this suspension could have, and we are working now to ensure that cycling is in the best possible health once the suspension can be lifted.

“As I’m sure everyone can appreciate, these are truly unprecedented circumstances, and while we will be doing all we can to retain a sense of normality and continuity, it may take some time to return to full capacity as an organisation and as a sport once this situation has been resolved.

“We will continue to update our members with more information, and will be doing everything within our power to support those who have contributed to the rich cycling culture that this country boasts.”

Paul Jones (Primera-Teamjobs) won the Tornado RCC 10, clocking 22:37 on the P164 at Lyndhurst in Hampshire. Coached by former Multi-national Champion, Julia Shaw, the 49 year old from Poole finished 3 seconds clear of Aron Kelly (New Forest CC), also coached by Shaw. two of only three riders inside 23 minutes on a grey, windy morning in the New Forest. Shaw has added volume and specificity to Jones’s work ethic and “it works” the coach’s empathy abundantly clear as the pair discussed the race at the HQ.
In the Women’s race, Faye Faber (Cyclecoach. Com), 24:05, won comfortably from Kirsty McSeveny (…a3crg), 26:35. The 36 year old citing a 10 day training camp in Calpe for her good form.
Stephen Swindley (Royal Navy & Royal Marines CA) was as Dominant as Faber in the Road Bike event, his superb 22:45 bettered only by Jones & Kelly A marine engineer in the Royal Navy, 26 year old Swindley prefers a rolling road race and is targeting the VE Day stage race with the Armed Forces team.
Course record holder, Matt Buckley (VC St Raphael) was a non starter but his 20:58 was never under threat, a chilly south westerly wind scudding across the open Forest heath left most happy just to get a race in the legs after a string of early season cancellations.

Tour Series & Womens Tour Cancelled


PRESS RELEASE
Following consultation with stakeholders, sponsors and partners, we have decided to postpone the upcoming twelfth edition of the domestic cycle race series (throughout May 2020) and the 7th edition of the Women's Tour (8-13 June) due to the current uncertainty surrounding the spread of the COVID-19 virus.


The decision to delay the series until later in 2020 has been taken with the best interests of competitors, officials, staff and spectators in mind following discussions with event stakeholders and partners, in order to provide certainty to the many parties involved in the planning and organisation of the events, including local authorities, police and health services in the venues.


We will work with British Cycling and other stakeholders to identify an alternative suitable date later in the summer for the races to take place.


The decision has been taken early in light of the worsening global situation, following discussions with event stakeholders and partners, in order to provide certainty to the many parties involved in the planning and organisation of the event, including local authorities, police and health services in the UK.


As a part of the UCI Women’s WorldTour, the Women’s Tour attracts a significant international presence from teams, riders, officials, staff, media and spectators, and it is felt that the risk of increased restrictions on international travel would be detrimental to the future of the race should an early, and conclusive, decision not be made.

A reliability trial is a ride which challenges a rider to complete a course within a preset time limit. Such events are often held in the winter months of the year and are used by cyclists as training rides. For example; a common test would be a 100 in 8 – 100 miles would have to be completed within eight hours, including any stops.
The term is historic when cycling equipment was less reliable, roads were rougher, routes were more poorly sign-posted. The name was also a way of emphasising to the police, at a time when the place of cycle sport on British roads was insecure, that the mass rides they might see were not races.
Reliability trial riders needed to be self-sufficient, adept at navigation, able to deal with mechanical problems, and fit enough to complete the course. In some cases, successful completion of the ride entitles the rider to a certificate.
Or perhaps try this.....
