Local Riders,Local Races



Darren Kenny OBE, retained his 1 KM time trial title on day 3 at the world championships in Los Angeles. Verwood- based Kenny clocked 1:12.496 in his four lap effort, more than a second faster than David Nicholas (Australia). Great Britain team mate Shaun McKeown also made the podium, picking up the bronze medal. Kenny had bounced back well after the disappointment of losing his 3km pursuit title to Nicholas on day 2. The multiple world & Paralympic champion had been caught by the Australian in the final ride and had to settle for silver. Another Silver followed in the team sprint final as Kenny, along with Sarah Storey and Jody Cundy lost out to the Chinese trio. Meanwhile Barney Storey had to settle for silver for the second consecutive year in the tandem kilo. Storey and visually impaired stoker Neil Fachie came agonisingly close to gold, finishing just 0.0099 seconds behind teammates Anthony Kappes & Craig MacLean. Storey and Fachie were on course for a final showdown with their GB rivals after beating Canada in the quarter finals. However the Corfe Mullen rider was taken ill and had to withdraw from the semi-final with the Netherlands. Kappes & Maclean went on to win the title comfortably beating the Dutch pairing 2-0.Once again GB topped the medal table but it had been a challenging week for the whole squad. The jet lag from the long flight hung around longer than expected. Shaun McKeown spent most of one night in the hospital after suffering an allergic reaction to something he ate.

Rising star, Mark Colbournes father had passed away on the opening day of the championships. His gold medal winning ride in the C1 pursuit was fuelled by emotion. Barney Storeys illness and subsequent withdrawal from the tandem sprint undoubtedly cost him & Neil Fachie a medal. Instead of riding against the Netherlands in the semi-final, Storey was forced to return to the team hotel. “That’s bike racing” was his disappointed response. Perhaps this had been on Sarah Storeys mind as the sprint team surrendered their world title to the Chinese.

Lead Coach Chris Furber offered no excuses however and remains positive, Furber told “E D” “I’m satisfied with the performance at the Worlds, to be in gold or silver medal position in 14 events puts us in a great place for the games. The next month is about reviewing performance and formulating detailed plans for the run-in to London." After a few days rest for the squad thoughts will turn to the road. An endurance camp in Majorca in March will be followed by world cup events in Italy and Spain. The track events at the Paralympic games will be held in the Velodrome at the Olympic park, while the road events will take place at Brands Hatch.


Perfs Pedal Race

Chris Opie (Team UK Youth) won the season opening, Perfs Pedal race on Portsdown Hill. The race went ahead, although reduced from 5 laps to four, after the VC ST Raphael organising team had worked hard to clear ice from the course.
Team UK Youth had controlled the race from the start, strength in numbers and a race plan ensured no one was allowed to escape the bunch.Doug Dewey(Terra Footwear-Bicycle line)lead a small group clear on the final climb before Opie attacked to take a comfortable win.

Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers 100 mile Reliability Trial
Bournemouth Jubilee Wheeler, Mike Walsh, organiser of the clubs hugely successful reliability trial series reports on the 100 mile event. The four tourist trials across the winter months have proved very popular.
"54 riders started, 27 on the 100 in 8 and also 27 on the 100 km. 24 finished the 100 in 8 and 26 the 100 km.
A fantastic finish ratio. The fastest group finished in just over 6 hours whereas there was a couple on the 100 km who returned just before 4 p.m. Although a cold start to the day the roads were dry and any water draining from the fields could be identified and thus the ice patches avoided. The weather became less cold through the day and the riders experienced minimal wind. All riders seemed happy upon their return and tucked into the tea and cakes provided under the guidance of Aimée Barber. (Other helpers were Dave Langley, Mike and Jo Gordon, Reg Haskins, Aimée, Matt, Sue [Barber family], Jacky and Clive). I had a large glass of wine in the evening."
