4th Cat Dreaming with Lewis Stripp!


Lewis Stripp is relishing the prospect of working as part of a team as he approaches his fourth season of cycle racing. The 29-year-old, from Wyke Regis in Dorset, has previously sported the Mud, Sweat & Gears (MSnG) jersey as a club member. But this season he will be part of the company’s new race team.The squad will have the mechanical support of MSnG, which has shops in Weymouth and Dorchester. But Stripp, who has been something of a lone ranger on the racing circuit to date, is keen to embrace the team ethic. He said: ‘It is quite an exciting prospect to think you will have a team around you to work with and hopefully it will allow us to further our own ambitions more than we could do individually.
‘Rather than turning up for a race with 50 riders and there is one other guy who you saw at an event the previous week, now it will be a case of turning up with five or six other lads who you have been working with all winter.‘It has been great to be part of some structured training. We have been able to learn each other’s strengths and weaknesses.‘And the opportunity is there to work with more experienced racers, learn from them tactically and tap into their knowledge.‘Then there is the mechanical support from the shop, which is great. They have also been able put a package together to help us with kit. ‘It can be an expensive sport, so that backing is fantastic.’Stripp has largely focused on criterium and circuit racing until now. And while he expects to continue in that vein this term, he is also looking forward to testing his legs in road races.The category four rider said: ‘I want to get involved in as much racing for the team as possible.‘Hopefully I can start working my way up the categories in the British Cycling rankings.‘It would be nice to be in a position where I could be a cat three by the end of the year.’
Thanks to Rob Atkins

Mud,Sweat & Gears launch Ambitious Race Squad for 2016


Darren Orchard unveiled the new Mud, Sweat & Gears (MSnG) race team and declared: "It was time to up our game".
Rob Atkins reports on the Team Launch........
The West Dorset club has swelled to around 500 members with the passion for cycling at an all-time high.
And as the MSnG shop celebrates its 20th birthday this year, Orchard and fellow team manager Matthew Merritt have taken the plunge and launched a structured racing squad.
A kit deal has been struck with Specialized, while the company will provide mechanical support for the riders who have been signed up.
The team’s formation is the realisation of a long-held ambition of MSnG shop chief Andy Leach, who also runs the annual Dorset Dirty Dabbler sportive.
And it is hoped the new squad will offer a route into competitive racing for hungry club members, women and budding young talents.
Orchard, 37, from Dorchester, said: ‘It is a huge club and within our membership alone there is an appetite to do something as a team.
‘This is a chance to up our game. We have had some smaller versions before but we have never had such a collectively engaged group ready to race in the name of the shop.
‘It just needed that spark from somebody and Matthew provided it. He has been great, I just jumped on board.
‘Andy has wanted this before but with the business, he has been limited on time. Hopefully he is happy we have taken it on!’
The team was officially launched at MSnG’s Weymouth shop on Saturday.
Many of the current squad are new to racing and rated fourth category - the first rung of the British Cycling ladder which is capped by first category and elite riders.
But Orchard, who holds a second category licence, reckons each racer will benefit from the structured team environment.
And he is keen to develop youth and women’s sections as the team develops.
Orchard said: ‘We want to help push forward everyone who wants to give it a crack.
‘With the guys training properly and starting to enter races, it has really started to come to life.
‘There has been this burst of enthusiasm, which has been amazing. It is very exciting. We have to be realistic, though.
‘Most of the riders want to get promoted from fourth category to third category. That would be their season’s goal.
‘If we can support them and help them achieve that within the team, that is perfect for us. That will be great.’
To find out more about the MSnG race team or to join the club, find them on Facebook or call in to one of the shops.
The shops can be found on the Chickerell Link Road in Weymouth and the Great Western Industrial Estate in Dorchester.

Dorset Miles: The 100 in 8!


I rode my first Jubilee 100 in 87’ on a red Raleigh Clubman, I missed the start by 2 minutes, rode 50 miles on my own, punctured 3 times, and finished on a borrowed front wheel with 5 minutes to spare, I was hooked! Call me romantic, I know I am in the minority these days but for me the bike is about suffering, not chocolate cake. There is no reason to ride a 100 miles but like the mountain, we do it because it is there and who can resist riding through some wonderfully named villages. Someone went to a lot of trouble to christen these places, the least we can do is go to a bit of trouble ourselves. Puddletown, Piddletrenthide, Plush, Hazelbury Bryan, Droop, Fifehead St Quentin, Knackers Hole, Fifpenny Ockford, (Okeford Fitzpaine) & Hogstock, you couldn’t make them up, well someone did! Around 40 sign-on, £1 a pop, eleven choosing the soft-option 100km, leaving 29 for the 100 miler. Afford it a fancy name, “THE COCKMEASURER’S 100”, perhaps, charge £35 to enter, put a cheap bidon and a voucher for 10% Off at the local bike shop in a plastic bag and call it a goodie bag: It would be sold out! Don’t get me started! Clockwise this year, a stiff south westerly is on our backs and in our faces, it’s a big loop. Punctures spoil the day for some, the relentless ups and down does for others. The small knot of five riders left at Wimborne, a testament to fitness but all who finish prove their reliability and after all that’s what it’s about. The ride out to Merley and home adds another 20 miles to the days total and after all these years it’s still good to see 3 digits on the Garmin.

BC South Region - Youth Selection Policy 2016



The British Cycling Inter-Regional Youth Championships are often seen as the pinnacle of youth competition in the UK. Coming towards the end of the season they offer riders the chance to experience multi day events in a team environment.
• The 2016 School Games will incorporate the Inter-Regional Road Championships from 2-4 September at Loughborough. There will be a wide-range of road-based events including a criterium, time trial, team time trial and road race.
• The Inter-Regional Track Championships will be held 24-25 September at Newport Velodrome. The event will be contested over the 9 World Championship events: Sprint; Keirin; Time Trial; Scratch; Points; Pursuit; Madison; Team Sprint and Team Pursuit.
• The Inter-Regional Mountain Bike Championships will take place 30-31 July; the location is still being finalized, but in a change from previous years it is likely to be either in Scotland or the South West, rather than Hadleigh. There will be a wide-range of off road events including a skills based competition and a full Cross-Country race.
All three teams can consist of up to 4 boys & 4 girls who were born between 2000 and 2003, with each event having one boy and one girl named as a non-travelling reserve.
BC South Region has created a list of events where rider performance and behaviour will be observed and will be used for selecting riders for the 2016 School Games and the Inter Regional Championships. Selections will be based on the following criteria:
On the Bike
Attacking riding – ability to make repeated efforts
Bike handling ability – cornering skills, positioning in group, etc
Finish position Tactical Awareness
Being a selfless team player

Off the bike
Professional behaviour and attitude, both on and off the bike
Appropriate clothing /personal presentation
Independence off the bike – ability to be ready with bike set up as required on time
Be able to listen without distraction and follow instructions
Being a selfless team player
Riders wishing to be considered should be capable of competing in multi day events and at National standard events. Once a long list has been named there will be a requirement for attendance at additional sessions such as Regional School of Racing (RSR) and any team training days as requested.
Riders wishing to be considered should express an interest in being part of the team by sending a narrative as to which disciplines/events they wish to be considered for and the reasoning as to why they should considered. E-mail to: SouthYouthTeam@Outlook.com.

The selectors will consider performances in each individual event based on the selection criteria stated above and the need to create a balanced team to contest the events. An accumulative or average scoring/points system from the events listed below will NOT be used and riders do not need to enter all events listed below to be considered. In addition, all national road, track and mountain bikes events will be taken into consideration, with confirmed observations, at the events listed below.
Team selection will be confirmed with riders, parents and coaches no later than 1 month before each individual event. Please note some financial contribution from those selected will be required.

Investment in Cycling Debate: BC Plan to Keep Pressure On!



British Cycling Press Release
Cycling Minister Robert Goodwill closed the Parliamentary debate on the government’s investment in cycling less than ten minutes ago.

Martin Key, British Cycling’s campaign’s manager, gives his reaction to the debate:

Today’s Westminster Hall debate on government investment in cycling illustrated how much progress has been made in recent years. Cycling didn’t have much political attention in the past and rare debates like these would be poorly attended and often missed the point. Today, we have MPs from all parties and all across the UK representing the very real concerns of their constituents and British Cycling’s 117,000 members – namely that the vast majority of people actively want to use their bikes more often, but are put off by concerns about safety. A clear message was sent to government today that more investment is needed in segregated infrastructure to make our roads and junctions safer. Does this amount to the kind of political will to deliver the ‘cycling revolution’ promised by the Prime Minister? No. Is it a step forward? Yes. We will keep the pressure on.

Jack Billyard: On the Threshold of a Pro Career? First Impressions!


San Miguel. The name I once associated solely with the brand of beer now has a new meaning in my mind; pain. At three kilometres in length, it’s certainly not the longest climb in the world and with a nine percent average gradient it’s by no means the steepest, yet every repetition feels like the worst ten minutes of my life. La Cerro de Sao Miguel (San Miguel as we call it) was the first major test we were introduced to here in Portugal and in my opinion remains the hardest we’ve done.
From the top of the climb, the juxtaposition to the terrain back home in Wiltshire is even more distinct. Looking south you can glimpse the coastal town of Olhao through the glaring winter sun and the Atlantic Ocean. To the north are the low clouds and endless rolling mountains of the Algarve which cover close to five thousand square kilometres. It’s these mountains in which we spend the majority of our time on the bike immersed. The standard five hour day will encompass a range of skill and power sessions including climbing, descending and motor pacing all to hone and perfect our unique attributes.
It’s only been 4 weeks but it already feels like home here in Tavira. The seaside town is far from the Cote d’Azur or Italian Riviera but the acceptance from the locals at the swimming pool, gym and the vast array of coffee shops has been surprisingly quick. Everyone is interested in what you’re doing and informing them with the Italian/Spanish/Portuguese hybrid language we use goes a long way in integrating us into this small local community. Cycling, it seems, is a justifiable and well respected career choice in the south of Portugal.
Besides the obvious and undeniable foreign positives (for example the consistently warm weather), life is far from a picnic. The regimental and rigorous lifestyle is draining both physically and mentally. I don’t miss home itself, more the comforts that come with a predictable home routine - but learning to tolerate change and adapt to new challenges is a part of life we all go through during our lives.
It’s barely been 31 days but I know there’s no place I’d rather be at this point in my life. Sure, there are difficulties and sure, there are times where I doubt my mental capacity, but the journey to becoming a professional cyclist is a long and turbulent one – one that requires endless sacrifice and suffering but most of all, patience.
For now, the silhouette of San Miguel looks on from a distance, the panting of cyclists just an echo of reality.

Dave Rayner-funded,Jack Billyard (Zappis Racing Team) is currently training in Portugal ahead of his first full time season based in Italy. A first year Under 23 rider Billyard won the Souther Region Junior Road Race Title in 2015.

Pro Vision "Steve Joughin" Academy, Supporting Stars of the Future



The brainchild of former two time National Pro road champion and international Steve Joughin, a new junior team will be taking to UK and European roads this season.
The Pro Vision Steve Joughin Academy is based on a strong youth culture with the aim of helping the four riders realise their dreams and prepare them for their hopefully successful journey through their cycling life backed up by his successful cycle clothing business, Pro Vision.
None of the riders is yet a household name, all under 18, Ryan Coulton, Owen Lines, Morgan Hughes and Tomos Owens will be targeting the National Junior Series and home, the Junior Tour of Ireland and single day and stage races in Holland and Belgium, hoping they can change that.
“ With their collective abilities there is enough strength in depth to make an impression on this year’s racing scene,” according to Steve whose business is based in Stoke on Trent already has the backing of Continental tyres, O.T. E nutritional produects and KMC chains.
The management of the riders at races will be overseen by Peter Kay from Middlewich who Steve first met when he was a soigneur with the Percy Bilton pro team. Peter has been taking young riders abroad for the past ten years starting with Ian Stannard and Adam Blythe. More recently he has helped the likes of Richard Handley, Hugh Carthy and Mike Cuming all former JLT Condor riders.
Morgan, 17, is a second year junior who came into the sport at an early age cycling with his father and on club runs . Last season he rode with the Welsh National squad in the Cadence Junior race, Rs de Cymru and the junior Tour of Ireland. This year, as a good all rounder, he is looking for strong performances in the junior series, his eventual goal being a professional contract.
Owen,17, is also a second year junior rode for Steve’s Pro Vision club last year where he showed a real improvement with good finishes in the junior tours of Ireland, Holland and America. He is seen as a good sprinter with a professional contract also his goal.
Ryan,17, was a swimmer who came into cycling in 2013 riding local time trials and road races in his native Lancashire. He is a strong time triallist who can climb. This year he is looking forward to gaining valuable European experience with Peter.
Tomos, 16, is a first year junior but has been cycling for eight years already. Joining the academy is a natural progression. His year started with a track selection for Wales in Alkmaar, Holland. He is expected to see an overall improvement in all departments of the sport. He sees himself as a good all rounder with a sprint with an enviable long term goal of winning the Tour of Flanders.
Their UK programme:
Cadence RR
Mendips 2 Day
Cicle Classic
I.O.M
Spokes 2 day
Loughborough RR
Hatherleigh RR
Bath RR
Scarborough RR
Junior 3 day Tour of Wales
Their season is likely to begin with the Clayton Velo Handicap, the Mining Valleys in Wales and Holme Valley 2 day and a Belgium trip at Easter.
Steve said:” I know from experience that the hardest part of making your way in cycling is funding so I am really pleased to help[ young riders make their way in the cycling world. They are all promising lads. If we can help them fulfil their ambitions we will be happy.
“ I have been keen for sometime to put something back into the sport and so when Peter approached me I saw this as an opportunity. I got to know him when I was racing and he was one of the best soigneurs I ever had.
‘He is dedicated to the sport and has been helping youngsters for years all out of his own pocket he has great contacts in Belgium and Holland so these lads will be safe in his hands. You only have to look at the youngsters he has helped over the years back to Stannard and Blythe.”
Peter said:” I think the academy is really exciting and with not having to fund the trips myself, we can do a lot more. I love working with these youngsters and watching them develop and make their way in cycling. After all this time I have plenty of contacts abroad.It is great that Steve wants to help these youngsters. “

Bournemouth Council Release Track Statement


Statement from Bournemouth Council
In 2015, British Cycling (the National Governing Body) informed the Council that changes would be required in the management of the cycle track at Slades Farm.

When British Cycling originally provided funding for the facility in 2010, it was agreed that the Council would enter into a Management Agreement with Bournemouth Arrow Cycling Club.

Bournemouth Arrow Cycling Club subsequently formed a company, named Bournemouth Cycling Centre, as a not-for-profit enterprise to manage the day to day running of the facility on the behalf of the Local Authority.

British Cycling have retained an outstanding award sum, pending a suitable agreement being set up, with a requirement for some outstanding Project Conditions to be met:

• They want to see the Council undertake direct responsibility for the management and operation of the track facility, rather than through a third party such as Bournemouth Cycling Centre Ltd.
• They want to set up a Community Use Agreement between themselves and the Council, set against a development plan with the provison of usage data for the track.

Therefore, from the start of the new cycling season, the Council will manage the track directly, assisted by a ‘Steering Group’ of volunteers. This Steering Group will create a strategic management plan for the track, to include:

• A timetable of activity, including pricing structure
• A programme of events, including looking at previous and existing bookings
• Areas such as track operations and maintenance

The new Steering Group will be representative of British Cycling affiliated clubs, coaches, track users and Active Dorset (our County Sports Partner).

To maximise usage opportunities for all ages and abilities, the Parks service are developing an online sports booking system, which will enable the booking of a number of sports activities across the Borough. Whilst this is currently in development, this would therefore be the ideal time to include taking bookings for the cycle track through this system.

Bournemouth Borough Council is extremely grateful for all of the hard work done by volunteers at the cycle track since it opened in 2011.

We would very much like the current Directors and other individuals that have worked so hard in running the track to continue to be involved in the facility as part of a revised structure, working closely with British Cycling and this has been communicated to them.

We very much hope that this new way of working can open up further opportunities and benefit the facility and cycling as a whole.

Bournemouth Council set to take Over Velodrome Management.


Bournemouth Council is set to take over the management of the Bournemouth track. Bournemouth Cycling Centre Ltd (BCC) was set up in March 2011 to facilitate the use of the Slades Farm facility which opened in July 2011. BCC was registered as a “Not for Profit” organisation, staffed by volunteers. Bournemouth Council informed BCC of their intentions to manage the track directly, last August, effective from October 2015. BCC raised concerns around day-to-day management, particularly, bike hire and the centralised booking system, in response to these concerns the local authority agreed to reconsider the matter. However following a meeting in early December, Bournemouth Council decided to go ahead with their initial plans, including all revenue payments being made via a Local Authority BACS system. This loss of revenue will leave the BCC unable to operate, the Directors therefore deciding to wind up the company at the end of this financial year, 2015/16. A statement from BCC reads…
The Directors would like to place on record our thanks to Roger Papp who
has served the organisation as Operations Manager magnificently since its
inception. Roger’s skill, energy, drive and commitment during his time of
office will be appreciated as much by the successors to his duties in the future as his colleagues within BCC Ltd did during his time in post

“Local Riders,Local Races” spoke to BCC Director Alan McRae who added..
From a personal perspective, after the 15 years it took to get the Facility built, I’m proud of the way a group of Volunteers has operated the Centre over the last 5 years and how it’s use virtually 5 nights a week in the summer weeks has been achieved while establishing a very positive relationship with the other Community users at Slades Farm. Absolutely none of the bases for objection to the building of the track, expressed prior to achieving Planning Permission, have materialised.

“LR,LR” has also asked Bournemouth Council about the change in track management, including concerns over pricing and booking and recieved this statement..
