Dorset Miles: Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers Club Run


Fourteen meet at Kinson library for the Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers club run, that staple diet of mile-hungry winter riders. Numbers were down a bit on the week before, the extra hour in bed turning into two perhaps. North west to Merley, Oakley, Ashington and Corfe Mullen. The drop down Pardys hill is good fun but at the bottom the chairman punctures, all stop and wait, suitable respect for the title. Not putting the tyre on properly is a beginners mistake and quite rightly only a few wait this time. Chasing briskly, Lytchett Matravers, Organford, Sandford & Wareham, no sign of our group but the Bridport Wobbly Wheelers, leaving their coffee stop at the Quay tow us across to Wool via Ridge & West Holme, deep rim wheels, shorts, track mitts, its more like the end of April than the end of October. The West Bay collective press on to Moreton as we turn left to East Knighton and across the A352 to Winfrith Newburgh. The climb of "Five Marys" to Daggers Gate puts and end to the conversation, the reward is a view of the coast and the scream down to Lulworth Cove. We arrive before those in front but only by 5 minutes, turns out there is more than one road to Lulworth! a brief discussion on who had the hardest trip is interrupted by tea and cakes and quickly forgotten. The sun is shining as we climb away from the Cove, the blood in our stomachs not where it is needed in our legs. Fast down to East Lulworth then up Whiteway, there is no "s" and down Steeple, Church Knowle and Corfe Castle, run's captain for the day is Matt Rollinson and he is flying. We hang on as best we can across Rempstone and up to the golf club, the view across Poole harbour is stunning but i was mostly looking down! The obligatory dash through Studland to the ferry is always good fun, the ride back across town, not so much.
3hrs 53-65 miles

PrimeraTeamjobs Celebrate 25 Years!



Primera is 25 years old in 2017 and they intend to celebrate that anniversary with a great team.

Jason Gault, Primera-TeamJobs Road Team manager, has selected his team for the road race section with some exciting new riders joining for the new season. The aim is to get good riders racing in road races around the UK and working as a team in full support of each other.
Matt Downie

Matt Downie, TJ Key, Mike Bradbury, Julian Lockwood & Alex Collins have signed for the coming season. These riders will be joining Edward Hatfield, Alex Hart & Jason Gault to build a strong team. The team also welcomes a new sponsor on board. Ellis Jones solicitors in Bournemouth joins main sponsor ‘TeamJobs Recruitment’ and ‘Breeze Volkswagen’ for 2017.

Primera-TeamJobs will be naming team riders from other sectors at the end of the year. We have riders competing in Time Trials, Criterium, Cyclocross, Mountain Bike & Triathlon races worldwide.
Alex Collins

PrimerateamJobs is not about winning the Tour De France. They are working towards giving good cyclists the chance to ride as a team and get the best from our great sport. We have had many young riders join us, then when the time is right they move to a bigger team and race on the continent. We always wish them well and love seeing them progress to pro level. Main objective is to enjoy every ride in the saddle and learn to work as a close team.
Jason Gault & Julian Lockwood

This will be our 2nd year working with TeamJobs Recruitment and Breeze Volkswagon, all three of us enjoy seeing the young riders progress in their sport and life. This year we welcome Ellis Jones Solicitors as additional team sponsors, Ellis Jones are a local company who represent cyclists who have been involved in an accident.

David McWilliam of Ellis Jones is himself a very keen cyclist who takes on challenges such as riding from Rome to Home in support of the Steve Bernard Foundation, a charity we are both supporters of. When we talked to David about supporting the team he jumped at the opportunity, he had followed the team riders over the past few years and wanted to help build riders cycling careers.

We would also like to thank Specialized, Cannondale, Solice Eyewear, Sidi & Kask for their help in supporting our riders. If you are a keen cyclist and would like to join our team supporters please get in touch. This new season sees the kit already in production but for 2018 we will certainly have more opportunities.

Track & Circuit Racing Return to Portsmouth for 2017


TRACK RACING RETURNS TO PORTSMOUTH

Racing Club Omega will be organising a Counter of the BC National Hard Track Endurance League at Easter along with the first counting round of Group 6 for the BC National Youth Track Omnium 2017.
A new venture following on from the successful fixed wheel racing at the Calshot Winter Track League is a series of five stand alone open Track Meetings to be organised on the first Saturday afternoon of the month starting in April and running until August.
All youth categories on fixed wheel will be catered for at most of the dates and whilst time has been allowed for women in the programme we hope they will support the events (please see notes below for the few exceptions)
Entry is via the BC Website and is now open
2017 dates
Portsmouth Easter Track: Saturday 15th April 2017 (No U10 / U8 fixed but there is a free wheel event for them in the morning at the Portsmouth Easter Circuits)

CIRCUIT RACING AT PORTSMOUTH DURING 2017
Racing Club Omega are pleased to announce that they will be continuing to organise circuit racing at the Mountbatten Centre in Portsmouth during 2017.
There is a problem with the floodlights at the Mountbatten Centre, but we have been assured that the issue should be resolved by Easter and if this is the case then we might be able to include some additional categories in the evening events.

Hence the season will start at Easter with the Portsmouth Easter Circuits and then move into the Portsmouth Evening Circuits which are planned to start in May and run until August at the moment.

We are hopefully going to add more weekend dates as and when the floodlight work has been completed at the venue.
Entry is via the BC Website and will be open shortly

Cyclocross, James Cotty's Wessex League Blog


JAMES COTTY WESSEX LEAGUE RD 6 - FAIRTHORNE MANOR Wessex League Rd 6 - Fairthorne Manor
23.10.16

I'm still buzzing after this afternoon's cross racing. An old venue, but for reasons beyond those of a simple cross rider, an all new course on the opposite side of the drive. Why, I don't know, but from first views a very welcome addition to the Wessex calendar and in complete contrast to the muddy races we've all been subjected to over the past 3 years. For today we were presented with dry weather. A little cold, but dry! And boy was it dry, causing the course to resemble more of a mid-summer MTB venue with dust being thrown up through most of the corners, light brown grass torn by tires and ruts appearing in places you didn't need them. With the kids at a party I was a free agent for the day and made the most of it arriving early to get a few extra practice laps in chatting to other riders as we bounced round, some looking smoother than others.

So lets describe a little more of the new course at Fairthorne. Dry, tick. Flatt-ish, tick - no real hills to mention. Yeah there were some lovely little rises that made for a perfect 'interval' effort, but nothing that went for more than about 10 seconds with any ferocity. Twisty, oh yes, but again nothing with any nasty off-cambers. And bumpy...did anyone mention bumpy. Bumpy up, bumpy down, every corner, every switchback. Today's entrants will leave Fairthorne with one over-riding memory, it was fast and bumpy. But fear not though, this is not a criticism - cross racers take what's thrown at them, all courses are different, and all present their own challenges. The order of the day was therefore getting the tyre pressures right. Too hard and you'll bounce even more. Too soft on the dry grass and the tubular feels like it's scrubbing below you. Just right and you're offered a decent degree of cushioning AND the ability to corner. Five practice laps later we were dialled...

Now without wanting to name drop, but I will anyway, stand out performances from the practice laps alone go to Adrian Lansley. I'm sure where he rode had it's own little private strip of tarmac lightly covered by grass. Smooth, powerful and precise. It would come as no surprise to learn later that Adrian had put in another masterful performance to claim the top spot. Top ride dude!

You may also recall my 'moans' over the previous weeks about dreadful grid slots. Well, I spoke with the organisers and they agreed the 3rd row was as good as it would come until we reach the 10th round where and riders start dropping their worst results. For me I need to wait until round 11th though as I missed the first two races before the natural levelling will occur. Don't worry if you don't keep up, the league works in a clever way but can penalise you if you miss or don't finish a race until round ten. So anyway, a grateful row three it would be.

The start was on a slight incline. Nothing heavy and just my thing, hopeful that something may open up in front of me after the start whistle and I'd find myself somewhere inside the top ten. Well obviously my left foot hadn't read the script because four attempts later he was clipped in and we were away So bad was the start I went backwards at an alarming rate of knots. Even after the race I had people saying "wow, great start mate"....and I knew what they meant. Schoolboy Cotty was in the house and I knew it. I blame my left foot, we were all on a different page at that moment and it won't happen again - he's been warned!

So now we're left with a problem. The top boys, Adrian Lansley, Mike Cotty, Sam Allen etc were gone, a good thirty yards up the course and the first section of bends left very little room to pass. However I made some surprisingly good progress in place. The legs felt fine and the frustration of the start enough to have me looking for anything to make progress. This worked well until I found my natural position, for catching those now in front became more difficult, and very little behind was causing me concern.

We circulated like this for 3 laps trading places up and down with a couple of riders. Ryan Smith was another who looked on good form as we tussled through some uphill bends before he got the better of me (next week Ryan, next week buddy...). And, just as things started to settle, the ever formidable Oscar Hutchins made an appearance. For those that don't know, Oscar's had a great road season on his way to collecting his elite road licence. Oscar is also my team mate - no further explanation required. That's right....team mate! To say Oscar made things hard is an understatement. However, racers are racers and every time he looked over his shoulder I knew what was coming - another huge effort to try and drop me. Fair play, he got twenty or so yards a couple of times, but I dug deep. There was no way I was writing tonight's report knowing I'd not tried everything possible to catch and pass my team mate, and so it paid off with a lap to go. I saw my chance, pounced and broke the elastic knowing a couple of yards can quickly grow to thirty or more, and so it was to be. Legs working well, but lungs ready to explode, I crossed the line a short way ahead of one team mate and a couple of hundred yards behind the other. Again, plaudits to Joe Andrews riding with the boys he was :-)

Another good day out with thanks to the Wessex League and Fareham Wheelers for a great event. Next up is the country ground at Sparsholt, Winchester for round 7 of the Wessex League. Again, muddy in previous years, so let's see what next Sunday has in store.

Perfs Pedal Winner 2016, Rory Townsend (Pedal Heaven RT)

The week after the Perfs race, VC ST Raphael/Waites Contracts will be running their Hard Riders Time Trial on the Portsdown Hill circuit.
Velo Club ST Raphael Waite Contracts have decided to raise the bar for 2017 as our event from the feedback we received this year’s was a success, we wanted to create a New Hard Riders course to mix things up a little Some people call it the hell of the South but after riding this we are calling it “The Pain on Portsdown Hill” slightly longer than the event from this year but also tougher. The event will will feature a prize for (Gran Premio Della Montagna or for Strava Fans KOM) at the 4.5 mile marker but the prize will only be awarded if you complete the full course. The event will consist of two categories TT and Road bike category and we hope the roadies of the world will come and see how they go against some of the best Testers in the South DC area and possibly further afield.
Good prizes, well marshalled and another course record up for grabs but best of all loads of cake.....
Feel free to train on this course and see you on the 19th February 2017

Ian Drake to Step Down after "Unprecedented" Tenure


Press Release

IAN DRAKE TO STEP DOWN AFTER “UNPRECEDENTED” TENURE
Ian Drake has confirmed that he will step down as CEO of British Cycling in April 2017.

Drake said: “Some time ago I made the decision that the Rio Games would be my last as CEO of British Cycling. Now, following the success of our Olympic and Paralympic teams at those Games, the launch of our innovative new partnership with HSBC UK and Yorkshire’s successful bid to host the 2019 Road World Championships, I believe that the end of this Olympic cycle is the natural moment for a new CEO to take the organisation forward into the Tokyo Games and beyond.

“I have been involved with British Cycling in some form for almost 20 years, the last eight as CEO, and it is an organisation that I will always love. I have been privileged to be a part of the amazing success we have experienced over those two decades and I know that it will go on to even greater heights in the years to come.

“All organisations, particularly those operating at the highest level of sport, periodically require new leadership to take them to greater heights and tackle their new challenges – now is the right moment for both myself and British Cycling to move on.”

Drake first began working with British Cycling as a consultant in 1995 before joining the organisation full-time in 1998 in order to develop and implement the playground-to-podium pathway that was successfully introduced in 2000. In 2004 he was appointed Participation and Operations Director, before becoming Deputy Chief Executive in 2007. He succeeded Peter King as CEO in 2009.

British Cycling President Bob Howden commented: “I want to put on record my personal thanks to Ian for all he has done for British Cycling during a period of unprecedented success and growth at all levels - from the remarkable achievements at recent Olympic and Paralympic Games, to the extraordinary growth in participation, Ian has been a pivotal figure in it all.

“It is also testament to his commitment to the organisation that he has chosen to announce this now so that we have time to conduct a comprehensive search for his successor.”

The British Cycling board, led by the President, will now begin the search for a new CEO. Further announcements on this will be made in due course.

British Cycling under Ian Drake

· Over two million people are now cycling once a week, according to Sport England.

· Over 1.7 million people cite the British Cycling-Sky partnership as the reason they started cycling or now cycle more often.

· Membership has grown from 25,000 at the end of 2008 to 129,000 now.

· Female membership has increased 700%.

· The number of race license holders has more than doubled.

· Two-thirds of the Great Britain Cycling team at the Rio 2016 Olympics came through Go-Ride, British Cycling’s youth development programme.

· 24 new cycle sport facilities have been built and seven refurbished since 2009 with a further £15 milllion to be invested after the successful bid to host 2019 UCI Road World Championships.

· The number of grassroots cycle sport events has doubled.

· 16 UCI World Championship or World Cup events have been hosted, including this year the most successful UCI Track World Championships of the modern era.

· 34 gold medals in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics and Paralympics.

· Four British Tour de France wins.

· Over 100 world championship titles in elite cycling and para-cycling.

All BJW reliability trials will start between 08:30-09:30, SIGN ON & GO! From Merley Community Centre BH21 1XE.
The term reliability trial dates back to the early years of the 20th century when cycling equipment was not so reliable, road surfaces were poor, sign-posting was even worse, and mobile telephones had yet to be invented. Reliability trial riders needed to be resilient, able to navigate, capable of dealing with minor mechanical problems, and fit enough to complete the course within the time limit.
Successful completion of all 4 BJW Reliability trials entitles the rider to a medal.

Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers winter club run calendar 2016/17.
All are welcome to attend Bournemouth Jubilee club runs, meet at Kinson Library on Sunday mornings.
Schedule for Winter 2016/17 is as follows. 9AM start (with exception of the Reliability Rides which start at Merley Community Centre).
The rides will generally be ~50-70 miles with a cafe stop at the destination. Club runs are not run at race pace, but you do need to be reasonably fit to complete them. You need a robust bike (not expensive) as some of the roads that the club runs use are minor B-roads so mudguards and 25c tyres are recommended in the Winter Months.

The 1.3 mile slog from Belchelwell on the north side of this Dorset lump has a bit of everything, the 15% lower slopes level out, even dropping a little before rising up above the Blackmore Vale to the finish. Keightley, riding a 55 tooth front ring and tri-bars, coped easily with the hill despite some reporting wheel-spin after heavy morning rain had left the surface, leaf-strewn and slick.
Phil Cole (Mud Sweat 'n Gears) was the best of the rest, finishing 17 seconds behind Keightley but a good 30 seconds clear of teammate Monty Knight. With just one round remaining the team title seems to be a 3-way fight between MSG, Purbeck Peloton & CC Weymouth with Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers & Poole Wheelers equally uninterested, this Bournemouth Jubilee promotion attracted just one club member, Mark Bloomfield, who duly lifted the club championship.

Roger Slade Remembered



Moving tributes from sons, Matthew and Jonathan were heard by the packed congregation at the small church of St Marys in the West Dorset village of Stratton. Some proud consolation for mum Gill. Roger Slades full life was celebrated, jazz musician,cars, photography, cycling,model railways,gourmet, raconteur & wine expert! We all said our goodbyes, tears & laughter and afterwards, at the Village hall all were made very welcome, Roger Slade touched many peoples lives. 1941-2016.

"Spent many a happy Saturday afternoon in that little shop.... A font of fun and knowledge... and a passion for anything cycling. A sad loss"
anon
Very sad to report the passing of Roger Slade on 3rd October 2016. Roger opened Ridge Racing in Bournemouth in the mid 1980s, the cycling shop, stocked with the latest equipment quickly becoming the place to buy, chat and hang out.
"I wrote a letter to dear Roger in 1987 asking him to support me, i was a fledgling triathlete, just finding my feet, a member of Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers but not yet a cyclist. Without hesitation Roger said yes, (he liked the fact i had bothered to write a letter), Ridge Racing sponsored me for 5 years, providing bikes in horrendous shades of pink without question. Roger was a cyclist at heart but was happy to humour a "green" triathlete who knew little about "proper" cycling.

I get it now Rog!"

Roger Slade finally lost his battle with illness and died on 3rd October at home with his wife Gill, boys Jon, Matt and the dogs beside him which is what he wanted.



In his final weeks, the cycling community rallied round to send messages
of support - for which he was incredible grateful for.
Roger Slade 1941-2016

Andy Storey "I first encountered Roger through one of his riders: Chaz Chasemore. I can vividly remember seeing Chas at Poole Track League warming up on a stunning, shocking neon pink track bike with such a fluid pedalling style. I thought he looked pretty cool and sought out "Ridge Racing" a few weeks later on a training ride. I'm sure I wasn't the first kid to press their nose up against the window on a Sunday looking at some of those gleaming, exotic bikes that it used to stock. I rode for CS Purbeck for a few years, and it was during those winter rides that Roger organised that I understood why the likes of Dave Rand, Chas, et al would beat me so easily - I simply wasn't training hard enough! So they were a massive help, as was the advice I gleaned from Mark Lewis every week. Just little things like riding without your hands on the bars,repairing punctures out in deepest Dorset, being able to put on a gilet/race cap whilst riding along accompanied by Roger's infamous team car awash with sponsor logos and roof racks.
The Junior Purbeck GP was a race that I managed to complete which is still on of my proudest feast on the bike. I still have no recollection of the route, but I remember finishing in Wareham to much delight. A lot of races afterwards seemed pretty easy in comparison!"


Glen Pickford "I first met Roger in 1989 at his shop Ridge Racing in Bournemouth. Having just moved south from Lancashire in 1988, he was surprise to see a cyclist walk into his shop in the infamous Manchester Wheelers, Austin - Trumanns Steel Kit of my then team mates Chris Boardman, Paul Curran and the likes. After some conversation, he persuaded me to join his Bournemouth Olympic Ridge Racing project. That year I delivered some good wins for the team including the Shimano Grand Prix in Surrey which resulted in my first call up to the GB squad, which resulted in the Ridge Racing name on the side of my shorts getting exposure on Belgium and French TV. However one of the most enjoyable personal results was with two of my Ridge Racing team mates Mark Foden and Adrian Scofield when we blitzed round the Poole Wheelers 25 mile 3up TTT in 49 minutes, just after a massive thunder storm.. This gave Roger the opportunity to take the zip out of Alan Strong, it was one of the most perfect team rides I have had, well almost, next to the Poole Wheelers Vets two up later that year partnering a certain Mr M Tarrant, when we did it on road bikes, spoked road wheels and cotton caps turned backwards, finishing second by just a few seconds, giving Roger the chance again to take the rip out of Alan Strong who was full aero'ed and disc wheeled. Happy banter between those two.

Roger was a massive cycling fan and was so willing and enthusiastic to support riders in the sport, he often butted heads with BCF members to improve the sport. So enthusiastic and of his teams and I am extremely grateful to all the support he gave me.

It's a sad loss but fondly remembered
."


Roger Slade - 'a legend'. Back in the early 80's a bunch of Royal Marines decided to get into the sport of triathlon. We could run quite well, swim powerfully but had no clue about cycling, and so Roger came to our rescue with advice, kit and most importantly enthusiasm. At our first championships held in Poole Roger insisted on conducting full safety checks on all the bikes which resulted in one being taken to the welding workshop to get sorted.

It was he who introduced us to the local cycling fraternity and encouraged us into the time trials and training rides that enabled us to learn how to ride - if not properly then better. A couple of our guys went on to do quite well internationally including Berni Shrosbree and Chris Ray. Many of us fared quite well and are lifelong cycling addicts as a result of his input. Thank you Roger. Daff

Richard "Barney" Storey "The first time I met Roger was at the local 10 mile time trial (Barney aged 11) when he turned up with his team to ride. It was the first time I'd really seen a team first hand and loved seeing Roger interact with the riders. My first glimpse of what I would be doing 25 years later! As a family we got closer with Roger as myself and Andy were racing through the age groups. We helped Roger with his brilliantly run races, we became members of his team. If anyone gets a chance, look at the winners of Rogers Junior Purbeck GP, most going on to be very good professional road riders. He was generous with his support of riders and always wanting to help. Even at this stage Women's racing didn't have high numbers, but he still supported the now Raleigh DS Cherie Pridham. I was incredibly proud to work (like so many) at Ridge Racing. I Stayed working with Roger at Ridge Racing, then moving to his new unit at Wareham, where he finally moved away from the bike industry.
As a teenager, working with Roger and in his bike shop taught me so much, but also being taught everything about bike racing was fantastic and set me up for my role now of team DS. I was incredibly sad to hear of Roger's passing. It was very nice to be able to make contact with him in the last few weeks. Not to say goodbye, just to thank him for all he did to help a very young Barney Storey on his path to a cycling career and continued involvement in the industry."



Jonathan Wiggins "RIP Rog, so many massive memories and always so passionate about cycling. I remember this club runs well travelling down from Frome and staying with your family. CS Purbeck Ridge Racing was a fantastic club we all learnt so much. You took me racing in France and Belgium for the first time in your citroen flying along because we were late for our boat to Cherbourg. Then we had an accident and wrote the car off in Belgium and had to hire another citroen, which was too small to fit the roof-rack, had to alter everything and make it in time on the boat. So many memories and a true gem of a man that many of us owe so much admiration and respect to. Sure you would be proud that I still live in Belgium and in the racing scene. Thanks Rog"

Whiteway Hill Climb, Keightley Clear in Purbecks!


Lewis Keightley (Team Bottril) won the Poole Wheelers, Whiteway Hill climb, producing the only sub-7 minute ride on the 2.4 mile Purbeck climb. Keightleys time of 6.53 was 11 seconds down on his winning time in 2013 but over 30 seconds clear of Ryan Weston (Poole Wheelers), a chill northerly wind spoiling the bright autumn morning. Keightley, riding a straight forward time trial bike, averaged 27mph on the flat approach before soaring up the army range ascent. Martin Rowland (Poole Wheelers) finshed 13 seconds adrift of Weston in third.
New club on the block, Purbeck Peloton should give reigning champions Mud,Sweat 'nGears a fight this year, Rob Koppenhall, 7th, claiming club bragging rights for the newcomers.
