This classic route really is a true test of a riders condition and if the weather is bad, resilience . In addition to the 100 mile route there is a shorter 100KM trial starting at 09:00 Non members welcome! Start and finish is at Merley Community Centre (BH21 1XE), Harrier Drive, off Oakley Straight, Merley, where parking, toilet facilities and light refreshments are available.

Cycling Time Trials Responds to Proposed Racing Ban on the A 63. (V718)



Highways England has put forward a proposal for a Traffic Restriction Order (TRO) to ban cyclists from the A63 near Hull. The stretch of the A63 which would be affected includes the entire course used for the ultra-fast 10 course, the V718 and all its derivatives. If the TRO is put in place, that would mean the V718 would cease to exist as a course and no more events could be held on it.

The Statement of Reasons given in support of the proposed TRO is:

Concerns have been raised for the safety of cyclists using the A63 Trunk Road between North Cave Interchange and Daltry Street Interchange. Cyclists are travelling on a carriageway that carries average speeds of 65 mph for traffic, at a rate of over 2500 vehicles per hour. In the last 5 years there have been six accidents involving cyclists, including a fatality in 2013. should we state that the cyclist rode into the back of a stationary caravan - not necessarily stating the obvious? It could be seen as a sensible objection perhaps?

In the interests of road safety, Highways England Company Ltd is proposing to ban cyclists on this stretch of road, including the associated slip roads.

CTT does not accept that on the days and at the times that time trials are held on this stretch of road that the figures quoted by Highways England accurately represent the correct position. CTT does not believe that the V718 course represents a danger to cyclists or that time trials held on this course are not safe. The six accidents referred to are not all accidents in CTT events. That is the total number of accidents involving cyclists over the last six years, which is not statistically significant. That should be compared against a recorded number of 297 accidents over the same period on this stretch of road involving motor vehicles. Accordingly, CTT intends to object to the proposed TRO in the strongest possible terms.

If you wish to object to the proposed TRO, please could you put your objection in WRITING (Highways England has not supplied an email address for objections to be sent to, so objections cannot be made by email) and POST it to The Office of the Director, Operations Directorate (Yorkshire & North East), Highways England, 3rd Floor South, Lateral, 8 City Walk, Leeds, LS11 9AT. The objection should quote the reference 'The A63 Trunk Road (North Cave Interchange to Daltry Street Interchange) (Prohibition of Cyclists Order)'.

Objections MUST be received to the above address not later than Monday 19 February 2018.

Any objection must be based on the proposed ban on cyclists using the A63. An objection based on the fact that it is a fast time trialling course would not have any merit and would very likely be disregarded.

If you do wish to lodge an objection, you may wish to begin this as follows:

I write to object to the above proposed TRO. Please respond confirming you have received this objection and respond to the issues I have raised below. Additionally, please inform me of the outcome of this consultation and of any future amendments to this proposal.

The grounds of my objections are:

Then please give details of your objections. Suggested objections are listed below, although if you wish to object please add whatever objections you have of your own:

Six accidents involving cyclists in a period of five years is very low. Why is it proposed to impose a total ban on cyclists? As compared to significantly more accidents involving motor vehicles over the same period (nearly 300) why is it considered that a ban on cyclists is proportionate?
I do not consider that the quoted statistics of six accidents involving cyclists over a five year period are statistically significant. How do the statistics quoted compare against collision statistics for other similar type A roads? Is a similar type proposal (for a TRO) to be made in respect of those other A roads?
Bicycles pose the lowest risk of all vehicles types on the highway, due to their lower speeds and mass. Please could you explain why such a low figure can be treated by Highways England as justification to ban bicycles on this stretch of road?
I do not consider that a ban on cyclists on this stretch of road is a proportionate response bearing in mind the statistics quoted. What alternative measures have been considered?
Highways England has an obligation to respond to ALL objections received and must respond using the same means by which you contacted them (ie. by letter). As such, please ensure that when making your objection you give details of your name and address.

Again, objections must be received by Highways England by 19 February. If you wish to object and to help to save this course, please could you lodge your objection with Highways England by that date? The more objections received, the more Highways England has to take notice of what is said. As such, please don’t rely on others objecting. Every single objection is needed.

Thank you.

The Portsmouth racer, 22, will ride for Vitus Pro Cycling in the coming campaign after penning a deal with Cherie Pridham’s new-look outfit.


• SHACKEL ON... EARLY DAYS: ‘I started with Guy Watson’s Portsmouth School of Cycle Racing at the Mountbatten Centre after moving to the city and I liked it from the off.

‘I rode for i-Team for a few years. Guy was really good. He has got quite an old-school approach to coaching but is very methodical and is a very good coach.

‘I then rode for a couple of other teams. I guess I was a pretty average second cat rider but then got involved at Wiggle.

‘Since then I have really learned how to race. And with that experience, I have become more confident to get stuck in at the end of races and that’s when I have picked up a few results.’

• SHACKEL ON... WIGGLE: ‘I have been riding for Wiggle for four years. A friend, Ben Simmons, suggested working and racing for them.

‘I have had some great opportunities. If there has ever been a chance to represent Wiggle, they have always been super-keen for me to do it.

‘I have been criterium racing in places like Trinidad, so I couldn’t have asked for more. Not many people are lucky enough to have a workplace that is so encouraging.

‘It has been really good. Hopefully I have represented them well, doing what I can in races to make sure people see the jersey.

‘I will miss riding for them. I have really enjoyed it. But it is good what I’m doing now still has strong links with Wiggle.’

• SHACKEL ON... VITUS: ‘Steve Kitchin (Vitus and Prime marketing manager) really sees the value in a sponsorship deal like this. Not everyone would be able to link the exposure from racing to selling bikes.

‘It is not always a number on a bit of paper which measures the success. It may just be people talking and getting the name out in the right places.

The Tour Series is likely to be among Andy Shackel's targets this season.
‘But this is definitely a great move. Vitus wants to be a top-end bike but it is also there for people who just want to get into cycling, too.

‘The Vitesse EVO, which we will ride, is a good all-rounder. It is stiffer than anything I have raced before but just as comfortable. I’m very happy with it.’

• SHACKEL ON... TEAM KIT: ‘We have got some great sponsors. Prime is one of Wiggle’s own brands, too, and the aim is for that to be a premium wheel at an affordable price.

‘It is a case of encouraging people to look past the label. It will be good for us to prove to people a wheel like that can compete at the top level.

‘We have Mavic on board as well, so have some great shoes and helmets. We are on Schwalbe tyres, too, which is cool.

‘I’ve never ridden them before but have heard a lot of good things from lots of people, so I’m looking forward to seeing how they go.’

• SHACKEL ON... AMBITIONS FOR 2018: ‘I will be focusing on the crits and would like to win the South Region Crit Championship again.

‘I can turn my hand to road racing when needed but I’m a bit of a lump, so I’m better suited to crits. I’d love to ride myself into the top 15 or even top 10 during the Tour Series.

‘I think there may be some opportunities abroad, too. I only raced once in Belgium last year but I would be keen to get out there again.

‘I love the style of racing. The kermesses are so attacking. Everyone is there to get stuck in, which makes for great racing.’

Andy Shackel starts his season at the Perfs Pedal Race on February 11th.

UK BIKING Aiming Big in 2018!


"We are going big this year on the Cross Country side, targeting national podiums and titles. For the road we have promoted a number of promising club riders who will be coached by e3coach.com and targeting Dorset League and other southern races.We will also be supplying some of our most promising sponsored XC riders with a bike, painted in custom colours via the trek project one system.
The team has had a great start to the season with Sam and rising star Tony Revell both winning their races at the off camber event" Says team principal, Richard Lang.Established in 2010 and now Sponsored by Bournemouth Cycleworks & Trek, UK BIKING, led by Lang are also behind the popular TLI Moreton race series in West Dorset, the 2018 series runs for 12 weeks and kicks off on May 3rd. "Local Riders, Local Races" caught up with team member Sam Humphrey, and asked him a couple of questions ahead of the new season.

Sam Humphrey

You have been around a while Sam,tell us more?

"I’ve been at this a while now! I started off with BMX racing when I was 8 years old, I was OK at it but nothing special……what it did do though was shape the technical skills that would later be so important in MTB racing.
I fell in love with the Tour De France when I was about 11 or 12 as it was always on the telly on channel 4 when July came around, my Dad was a racer way back and still had a keen interest and it sort of rubbed off on me. He said when he raced he would ride 30 miles a day………so that was it, I was out on my secondhand road bike doing my 30 a day………..until the first Muddy Fox MTB’s arrived on our shores!
From the first look….I was hooked, all those gears, big fat tires…..I totally fell in love with the image and the freedom of the go anywhere bike. At 14 I got my first MTB, a Saracen Tufftrax, I rode in all weathers! And did my first race that same year, 1988 I think it was. I rode well in the senior class as I didn’t know there was a junior race! And by the end of the year I had won three junior races and travelled around as far as the inside park surftracks challenge race in Dorset!!!!
My local shop then helped me out with a bike and that second year I went on to finish second in the national series, the bug had bitten!
Two years later I became national champion and finished 5th in the world championships in Canada which made up for the disappointment of puncturing out of the world champs in Italy the year before.
I sort of dropped out of MTB racing for a while after that……just doing the odd bit here and there and struggled a bit with some injury and health issues……it pretty much devastated me as I just could not get back to a good level for ages.
I then got back on track and decided to head to France to have a crack at road racing. I was based in Normandy with a division 3 elite club called St Lo. I held my own for a couple of seasons and had a win or two, but just never really loved it and came home…i had lost the love totally by this point.
I kicked about for a few years…..until I was rescued by triathlon! A mate laid down a challenge to see if I could run and swim instead of “just ride a bike”
In the space of three years, I went from struggling to swim 3 lengths of my local pool….to finishing second overall in the Oregon scientific national Olympic distance series and fifth in my class at the Xterra world champs in Hawaii…where I met my future wife!!!
Whilst doing this, I also took part in the very first running of the BBC series SAS are you tough enough! Back in 2003! and managed somehow to be one of only 4 people that completed the selection process!
I kicked around a bit more…… then drifted back towards MTB racing as a bit of a hangover from the Xterra stuff……I managed to win the set 2 rise 12 hr a couple of years on the trot and got 3rd at mountain mayhem 24 hr……never again! I went out and rode the Ruta de los conquistadors stage race in costa rica with my wife as support crew……that was an awesome event, my main highlight was climbing the volcano road which was a 30KM climb in a group with Roberto Heras…(one of Lance Armstrong’s mountain domestiques)
I managed 5th in class there too before rocking up to a national MTB race a couple of years later at Margam Park……..where it seemed MTB’s had changed beyond recognition! They had 1 chainring, 29 inch wheels……it was a real eye opener!
I really had fun again and was close to being on the masters podium pace…..so with the support of my wife, I took the plunge again.
So for the last 3 years I have raced the national series as a Vet and been on the podium at the national champs every year, with 2017 being a great year with winning the southern series, winning one of the national rounds and getting third in the series. I finished off the year by racing the swiss epic as a mixed pair with my wife where we finished 4th in class…….and now she wants to go back!
And breathe!"

Favorite training session?

"I am lucky enough to work with E3 coach currently and we have built a good flexible approach to my training….I am also blessed with enough natural ability that I generally don’t need to train too much to be competitive……..which luckily means I manage to keep a fairly good life balance!
I use a wattbike at home and primarily focus on power for those sessions as its really measurable and repeatable……although through the winter months I have become a bit of a “sufferfest” lover!
My favorite ride is in the Pyrenees where my wife’s parents live and whenever we go, I try to get out on this loop. Its about three hours and has two pretty good climbs and if I see more than 5 cars…….its been a busy ride! I love being in the mountains and have bagged a few KOM’s over there, but I only get there a once or twice a year.
In the UK, I have a route that takes in most of my local hills as well as the infamous Gold hill! And it is essentially a 3 ½ hour hill interval ride, its mainly around the chalk valley, Shaftsbury and Cranborne area……I call it “the classic” and a couple of weeks back I took my team mate Tony Revell round it with me……where he kicked my ass! If anyone is up for it, drop me a line and we will get round it……but bring your climbing legs!"

Future targets ?

So the 2018 season started great, but I know it will be really tough this season, the vets class is unbelievably fast at the moment with elite racers like Paul Oldham ( multiple three peaks winner) and perennial winner and ex Olympian nick Craig I will have my work cut out! Although I did beat them both last season at different venues.
I have been fortunate enough to have been offered a place on the Bournemouth cycle works/ UK Biking/ trek team and the racing has begun……I have managed to win the first Offcamber marathon race and the Merida brass monkey 4 hr race for my new team who have given me fantastic support……I have an amazing team bike and have been able to tap into their expertise in bike fitting and they have even made me some custom shoe insoles………two wins so far says this is all helping!
I am hoping to get on the podium at every national points series race if I can, I want to try and win the national championships on the Olympic course at Hadleigh farm in July and see if my wife and I can make the podium at the Swiss epic this year!
I will try and compete in as many of the southern series race’s as I can, but time off work is limited as I work shifts and it can be difficult to get weekends off!
Overall I am just looking forward to being in the mix and being part of an exciting team with some great local talent and seeing if I can help some newer racers by lending them my experience if they want it."

Shackel Signs for Vitus Pro Cycling!


South region rider Andy Shackel has been named in the new British UCI Continental team, Vitus Pro Cycling. The 23 year old, Portsmouth based rider always rides positively, is aggressive but never arrogant and his "can do" all round approach will be a great asset to Cherie Pridhams new outfit.
Track,Crit or Road, the versatile Shackel does not mind!

Shackel took silver at the South Region Circuit champs behind Ian Field and finished 8th in the Divs after featuring in a race long break. The former Wiggle rider told "LR,LR"..
"Currently I plan to focus mainly on the Crits with the hope to ride some rounds of the Tour Series and possibly the London Nocturne. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in with the team as it has been a few years since I’ve ridden on a structured setup. My first race will potentially be Perfs, but I’m still recovering from a back injury from racing Red Hook Crit in Milan, so I’ll have to see how my condition is. The crash has limited me more to the trainer than I’ve ever been over the winter, so trainings been a lot more structured and hopefully more productive. I’m still working full time, but I’m used to fitting racing and training around work. I’m super excited to race at the next level with Vitus Pro Cycling."

Andy Tennant Part of Canyon Eisberg 2018 Squad


Five new signings ahead of the 2018 campaign
Nine riders have contracts renewed in 14-man squad
Average age of roster down to 23.5 (24 in 2017)



Tim Elverson has unveiled five new signings as he prepares for battle with Canyon Eisberg in 2018.

Team GB track star Andy Tennant heads the quintet, which includes Charlie Tanfield, Alex Paton, Louis Rose-Davies and Charles Page.

Elverson has also retained the services of Joe Fry, Dexter Gardias, James Lowsley-Williams, Matt Nowell, Chris Opie, Jack Pullar, Max Stedman, Harry Tanfield and Rory Townsend.

The UCI Continental outfit, who raced as BIKE Channel Canyon last season, will take to the road with a squad of 14 and an average age of just 23.5.

That statistic is lower than last term (24) as sports director Elverson continues to put his faith in young talent.

Elverson said: “We have five new riders for 2018 and we have retained all our solid performers from last season, which I am very pleased about.

“Combine those 14 with the same strong backroom staff and I expect us to make further progress this year.

“Andy was an interesting one for me. I have admired his riding from afar for some time and he is someone I’ve always kept one eye on tactically.

“We had a chat and I felt straight away we would work well together. There are still many road goals he wants to achieve.

“Add to that the experience he brings to my young squad and he became someone I was very keen to sign.

“Charlie rode a number of UCI races with us as a stagiaire. He fitted in really well and showed me there is plenty more to come, so I quickly signed him up.

“His recent track performances have highlighted what I already thought and I am very excited for 2018.

“I’ve worked closely with Alex before and have had good success with him. He left me to go to Madison with my blessing.

“They are a great team and it presented a good opportunity for him. But I worked hard to get him back and look forward to getting him rolling this season.

“I also want to keep that core of six under-23s within our squad. Louis and Charles are both exciting prospects and I have no doubt they will fit in well with us.”

Tennant, who celebrated the team pursuit world title in 2012 and is a six-time European champion in the velodrome, arrives from Team Wiggins.

Former Brother NRG rider Tanfield, 21, joins his older sibling, Harry, on the team having made huge waves on the track for Team KGF.

Second fastest on the all-time list for British individual pursuiters, he rode as a stagiaire for the team at the back end of last season.

Paton, a former national junior cyclocross champion, worked with Elverson at Pedal Heaven before spending last season with Madison Genesis.

Rose-Davies, who beat Tom Pidcock to the junior national road race crown in 2017, and fellow first-year professional Page, both 18, complete the new additions.

Their arrivals were announced back in July with Elverson underlining his commitment to develop bright young riders.

Team Announcement: Canyon Eisberg


Team Announcement Canyon Eisberg
Eisberg step up as headline partner of UCI Conti team!
Canyon Bicycles continue title sponsorship in 2018
Maxxis, Brother, Hunt and Fenwick's boost their backing!
dhb head raft of new partners for Tim Elverson's squad!


Canyon Eisberg sports director Tim Elverson, has thanked his sponsors for pledging their support for what promises to be an exciting 2018 campaignand and saluted his loyal supporters as he revealed the new-look Canyon Eisberg team for 2018.*

Eisberg, the UK's best selling alcohol-free wine brand, have stepped up to replace former joint title sponsor BIKE Channel UK, who went into administration in September.

Canyon continue their headline partnership, while the likes of Maxxis Tyres UK, Brother UK, Hunt Bike Wheels and Fenwick’s have boosted their backing of the UCI Continental team.

Add to that the arrival of a band of exciting new partners, such as technical tri-sports apparel brand dhb and ROTOR, and Elverson is excited for the outfit’s second season.

Highlights of the team’s debut campaign included a third place and two jerseys at the Tour de Yorkshire, heroics at the Tour of Britain and the Spring Cup title.

The team celebrated two individual wins and one round victory at the Tour Series, second place in the Grand Prix Series and third in the National Circuit Series.

A string of impressive performances in UCI races were capped by back-to-back stage wins and general classification glory at the Tour of Quanzhou Bay in China.
Elverson said: “Hopefully people enjoyed watching us in action last season and appreciated our attacking brand of bike racing.

“There are so many great memories. The Tour de Yorkshire, from start to finish, was a particular highlight for me.

“So following a fantastic debut season in which we hit every target we set ourselves, we move into year two setting new goals.

“We are grateful for all our sponsors who made last season possible. And we have been very fortunate to have strong partners continue into 2018.

“I thank Eisberg for joining Canyon as new title partners, along with Maxxis, Brother, Hunt and Fenwick's for all increasing their support.

“We also have continued backing from Salice, Sidi and Yellow Jersey, which is vital in keeping the stability of the team.

“We are very excited about our new key partner dhb, who we will be heavily involved with for future development.

“And this season we will also welcome ROTOR, whose power meters will be helping us develop our new and even younger squad.

“We will make further rider announcements in the coming days. And watch our social media and website for features on each of our partners.


Canyon will once again supply the team with their flagship models offering a choice of the new Aeroad CF SLX and Ultimate CF SLX.

Other product sponsors include Yellow Jersey Cycle Insurance, Salice, Sidi, KitBrix, Polar and 3T.

Nick Allen, UK Market Manager for Canyon Bicycles, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be extending our relationship with the Canyon Eisberg team through 2018.

“Our first season together enabled us to achieve so many sporting targets with Tim and the riders.

“At the same time it gave us the perfect platform to connect with Canyon consumers on the road and in an environment where our mutual passion for cycling shone through.

“We can’t wait to present the new Aeroads and Ultimate CF SLX bikes the team will use and we remain convinced that with these outstanding tools the squad will excel again.”

*The team rosta has yet to be finalized. Charlie Tanfield rode as a stagiare last season, while Junior national champion Louis Rose-Davies and fellow youngster Charles Page signed for the team back in July, all three could feature in the new squad as could Chris Opie.
