Inter-Club Hill Climb,West is Best!



Mud,Sweat n’ Gears & CC Weymouth turned the 2015 inter-club hill climb series into a two horse race after dominating the opening round on the Ridgeway climb north of Weymouth. Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers cling to a faint hope after claiming 3 of the top 4 places but Poole Wheelers are already out of it with just one rider making the short trip along the coast.
The series rewards those that ride, with all scoring points for their club and the two West Dorset outfits packed the 42 strong field. The two, supposedly bigger, better eastern clubs shown up by their smaller neighbour’s in the west.
Phil Cole (MSG) took the individual honours clocking, 2.26.61 for the 1 kilometre climb across Bincombe Down. Simon MaClaughlin (BJW) pulled his foot out of his cleat at the start, perhaps costing him the second he needed, only he knows if it cost him more? Tom Stocker & Bob Richardson (BJW) had ridden the 35plus miles out to the event and kept their clubs faint hopes alive with 3rd & 4th place. The never steep, Ridgeway climb was once the main road into Weymouth but the new road, built for the Olympics, has made it redundant, walkers, cyclists and the occasional farm vehicle now the only traffic. The series continues next week with the short, steep climb of Creech Hill in the Purbecks

Winter Training: What will you be Doing?


The road season is just about done; time to think about a few weeks off the bike, perhaps a few beers before concentrating on that all important winter training. But what should we all be doing through the off season? Long steady distance, quality extensive endurance guided by a power meter, Turbo training, Cyclo-Cross? “Local Riders, Local Races” spoke to the main protagonists (and others) at the recent VC Venta race to find out what they would be doing through the winter.

Tim Elverson (Pedal Heaven) “Have a proper break, you need to be hungry to get back on the bike, I don’t condone filling yourself with beer & pies because you have to get rid of that weight again, one or two blowouts is fine. Get a good block of road miles in before Christmas, because you tend to get a period when you cannot road ride and are confined to the turbo. Not junk miles, you have to keep your zone right and you need to tickle a few zones to make sure they don’t completely switch off. We ride on power and tend to ignore heart rate. Our Continental guys will go to Spain in December for a few weeks to start the base, a good base will get you through the season, you can still do well on a bad base but your season tends to be shorter and its harder to improve on the previous year if you just do the same old stuff”

Oscar Hutchings (Bikeshed-UEX) “A bit of a break am starting a new job so a few beers a bit of Cyclo-cross, then build up the long weekend rides, starting off at 2 hours 30 mins then build in some tempo work, I use a power meter and heart rate, I will use the turbo for intensity and intend to start that earlier, by December”

Andrew Syme (Primera-sports.com) “No beer, lots of miles and I am looking to get a coach”

Mitch Webber (Pedal Heaven) “ A lot of miles I guess and hopefully go to Spain a few times to get a big base. Up to Christmas it will be more miles and then afterwards incorporate a bit of structure with a power meter, I don’t use heart rate, I love power. I will have a two weeks off the bike in October and maybe do a little gym work, you need a bit of time off, you need some rest”

Danny Axford (Arctic-Tacx RT) “My 17 mile each way to commute keeps me in shape over the winter”

Malcolm Dixon (Dream Cycling RT) “I have a two week break, a holiday in Spain, I won’t take the bike. Winter miles with a power meter, its key, I absolutely swear by it. A little bit of cyclo-cross, I have not done that before. I start out the winter doing a bit of strength and core stuff, then I go to Spain in January and February, I am a guide for a tour company and get loads of miles in”

John Veness “ The odd beer,The Ottershaw race series, long miles and some mountain biking, I came from mountain biking”

Warren Jesse (Team Moore Fitness) “ I just don’t stop riding, I will ease back,steady riding, a bit old school really. The winter is about miles, no watts or heart rate for me, I just go on feel. If I was new to it I would use power but I have been doing it for 20 years now. I am going back to pedal Heaven, the shop team next year to add a bit of experience, they are looking to get a few more youngsters, two or three more perhaps
John Heaton-Armstrong “ It depends on what racing you are going to do I guess: Up until December I will do lots of nice long rides, enjoy the countryside and essentially do what you are not able to do when you are racing and if you are going out for 6 hours I would say that’s training. I do a bit of mountain bike racing so will do a few of the Gorrick MTB races for a bit of fun. My first big races are in March, I am away in December, then its all about the turbo in January, definitely Watts, it’s a no-brainer, having a plan is essential, the hardest thing about a hard training session is starting it, if you have a plan then you have something to stick to. The though process of what session should I do is taken away, have a plan and stick to it”

Rob Hurd (Unatt) “I don’t know, if I am going to race next year but you certainly have to be training by December”

Well there you have it, it seems power meters are the future as if we did not know it, structured training, warm weather camps and that old favourite, long miles. There are many ways to reach the top and they all involve hard work but for now kick back and enjoy that beer.

Axford Victory at VC Venta Summer Road Race!


Dropping Oscar Hutchings (Bike Shed-University of Exeter) on the final climb of Winton Hill, Danny Axford comfortably won the re-arranged VC Venta, 66 mile summer road race at Stockbridge Down in Hampshire. The 40 year old was conceding a few years to the younger Hutching’s but had the fresher legs and importantly the “nous” to take the win.
Axford had worked his way across a 60 second gap to Hutchings, John Veness (Hand sling) and early leader, Malcolm Dixon (Dream Cycling RT),adding impetus to the breakaway, pulling the lead out to over two minutes but ultimately consigning the three to the minor places.
Robert Ward (Danny Shane-Storck Racing) & Lewis Martin (Eden Veranda Racing) briefly led before Dixon attacked over Winton hill building a lead of 40 seconds on the second of six 13 mile laps. The Bristolian took the £10 prime on the line then eased to allow the chasing Hutchings & Veness to join up.
A lap later and riding well together the trio had stretched their lead out to 70 seconds as the sun burned off the last of the mist that had delayed the start by 30 minutes.

Harry Veale (Cycleworks.co.uk),Andrew Syme (Primera-Sports.com), Liam Walsh (VC ST Raphael) & Axford escaped the bunch on lap 4 but could not bridge across to the three leaders and the promising move was snuffed out. Half a lap later Axford went again, found himself alone, put his head down and caught the tiring leaders, setting up his first win of the season. Originally scheduled for a June date, the VC Venta race was postponed due to flooded roads. Slow-to clear mist threatened to scupper the event a second time but Commissaires delayed the start for 30 minutes and thankfully the sun appeared to save the day

Rider Reaction

Danny Axford “It was hard to jump across but I needed to do it because the bunch was not really going anywhere, I had tried earlier and expected other guys to come with me, the gap opened and I thought ok, Commit! I got about half way across pretty quick but the second half took quite a long time, I was wondering whether I was going to make it. I could see they were tired, I took the last prime and wanted to try and win on my own, I went into the wind at the hardest point, Oscar came with me, he is just like a limpet, really strong. I had a little dig at the bottom of the climb but Oscar came with me so I put it in the big ring not really because I had the legs but to try an intimidate him a bit then just near the top that’s where I went”
At 40 is it still exciting to win?
“Oh yeah, absolutely, yeah, yeah, yeah, I love it!

Oscar Hutchings “Hard, I attacked on the second lap, it took a while for me and John to reach Malcolm, we were working well but it got harder and harder, the course is a war of attrition really draggy. Once Danny caught us I knew we would stay away but also knew my chances of winning were slim, he was going so well. I managed to go with him once on the hill but could not respond the second time”

Malcolm Dixon “ I know the circuit, its very hard but I felt good today, I spent a lap out front on my own but had an eye on my power metre to make sure I was not working too hard. I took the prime then waited for the two behind, it would have been too hard to stay out on my own. We worked well together but when Axford joined it was clear he was strong, I could tell he was going to win it.

John Veness “I was starting to cramp and I was expecting Danny to have a go, I am pleased really, I have not been racing much so it’s nice to still be able to get in the breaks”

Rob Hurd “To be honest I have not done the racing, I would have preferred to have been in better condition, I am still not sure if I will race next year”

Warren Jessie “I fancied my chances this morning but for whatever reason I did not really have it, I was next to Danny Axford when he went, I knew that was the move but I did not have it, a hill climb in a couple of weeks and that’s it”

Andrew Syme “We kept on trying but it’s a tough course, it just wore me down, I dunno…………back to training I guess”

Paul Double
“That was horrible, I have been ill all week, I had nothing in my legs, so I pulled out, the national hill climb coming up then that’s it for the season”

Dave Billings (VC ST Raphael/Waites Contracts) ”Continuing training till early October, then two weeks off, bit of running then miles, miles, miles!”


Pedal Heaven DS, Tim Elverson was present at the race and had his eye on a few lads, Tim gave no names away but did stop for a quick chat.

Tim Elverson “Next year we are running a continental side and a shop team, obviously different BC licences and slightly different kit. The logic is the shop guys will be what we feed into the Continental team for 2017/18, we have a proven pattern at the moment, every year we have a junior who comes into the main team, as we step up for next year we now want a firm plan, the shop side will do the National B and local races, I will help develop how they operate as a team so they are more ready to go into the Continental side. The continental side will do some early season national Bs because we need the racing but through the season we will only do National A races. There are a couple of lads here I have my eye on, in fact there are 4 lads we are watching, they are young , you have to look past that, it’s about having potential and its down to us to unlock that potential, it’s not all about results. We have proven that now and have turned three or four lads into decent racers.

More to Come

Primera owner Bill Temple said “I have attended many cycle shows over the years and always seen people queuing to pay for entry and once in, they are disappointed to see what’s on show. Our aim is to provide our fellow cyclists with a cycle show with some of the biggest brands in the world with free entry. Five years ago after first approaching some of our suppliers to see if they would be interested in attending we were blown away with the positive responses. Some of the brands travel from overseas to attend because they love to show their products and they love talking face to face with the end user. This year we have some new brands attending and it looks like being a fantastic event. Hope to see you all on the day!”
Also on the day you will get the chance to enter the raffle with some fantastic prizes including bikes, clothing and a great selection of cycle parts worth thousands of pound.
Start time 10.00am going through the day and closing at 5.00pm. Raffle is being drawn at 4.00pm.
The venue is located right on Bournemouth’s stunning sea front so why not make a day of it!
