" Lots of non – starters, but fortunately the rain that we had travelling there moved away and the roads were dry, overcast but a bit breezy a Personal best for me since starting back - was hoping to get under 50 minutes. Think that might be a Poole Wheelers club record – Strong easterly going out gave me 17.20 for the first ten miles and about 26:25 at 15 miles!! Last 10 miles into the wind i could barely hold 25mph!”

New Forest News!

ROADWORKS at Sopley on Saturday led to the cancellation of New Forest Cycling club’s Charity 10-mile time trial, which had attracted a field of 75 riders.
Sponsors Bournemouth Cycleworks have kindly allowed its contributions to the prize list to be commuted to New Forest’s Boxing Day competition over the same distance.
Meanwhile New Forest CC brothers Bob and Chris Jolliffe travelled to Newmarket for the rescheduled Veterans’ Time Trial Association National 10-mile Championship, which was postponed from August 31.
Starting one minute behind his elder brother, Chris clocked his season’s best of 27-06, while Bob just held off his brother with 28-03, losing time after his tri bars’ righthand armrest snapped off just before the halfway mark.
Both were considerably slower than winner Rob Pears (Bath CC) who ignored the strong easterly wind which hampered the less fit on the return leg. He hammered around the E2/10 course in 19-30.

Poole Wheelers/Wesex League Cross, Full Results

Rob Gray Writes………Round 4 of the Wessex League Senior race won by Steve James (Hargroves RT), where this weeks cross was a local affair at Admiralty Park on Holton Heath near Wareham. Ten years has past since the last Wessex League race on a wet and windy day took place on the MOD land at Admiralty Park. Sunday however was rain free with warm sunny weather on a course with plenty of heavy going grass, woods and a nice tarmac section to stretch the legs.

It was a quick get-away from the start grid where the Seniors jostled for position on the tarmac before diving into the woods for the first lap of the senior race. Once out onto the grass a lead group of Mike Cotty (Wheelbase Cannondale), Luke Gray (Trek Cyclo-Cross Collective),
Steve James and Andy Hargroves (Hargroves RT) had formed. On the second lap Hargroves had dropped off the group which was now headed by Gray as they entered the grass field were the riders jockied for position . A lap later Cotty had taken the lead with Gray who had now broken free from James who had dropped a chain in the woods on a bumpy part of the course. It wasn't long before the group was back to three again. Then Gray was the next to be dropped unable to respond to a quick acceleration. Cotty and James continued to lap this short course together until 2 laps from the end. First Cotty made a move, which came to nothing, then as the last lap approached James made his move and got clear leading all the way to the finish. Cotty came in 10 seconds down followed by Gray 1.45 further back.
After 4 rounds Gray now leads the Wessex Series.

The promoting club Poole wheelers had a good turn out from the youth riders, where for the second week running Rowan Turner(Poole Wheelers) took the win in the under 12 race followed in by Max Meadwell (Bournemouth Jubilee).

Portland Hill Climb, Hatrick for McLaughlin

Justin Oakley Reports………..Thirty five riders faced the CC Weymouth timekeeper to tackle Portland Hill in round two of the local Interclub Hill Climb Competition. CC Weymouth were very well represented, a good ploy, as all finishers get points for these events, even if it is only one.

It was Simon McLaughlin of the Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers who triumphed for the third year running to win the race with a time of 5:54, just fourteen seconds from his own course record and twenty eight seconds ahead of Greg Parker from CC Weymouth. What can the other clubs do next year to secure that top spot?
The weather was cloudy with a nice tailwind pushing the riders up the long straight part of the climb but it was against them up to the finish line where not even a single rider could manage a smile worth noting, strange that!
Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers and Poole Wheelers have a lot of work to do in the next week in mustering up more support in the run up to the next round up Creech Hill, a short sharp climb through the woods and a course that demands a different approach entirely.

Gurnett Sees Red as Felt-Colbornes fall Short in Purbeck Two Day!

Scott Gurnett(Unatt) won the Primera Purbeck Two day after taking second place on stage two. Seventeen year old Gurnett, in his first season, lay in 14th place overnight and fancied a top ten finish. It was Gurnetts move , across the finish line with 5 laps to go that set up his win. Taking a 5 second time bonus on the line the Devon youngster pushed on and was soon joined by, Mike Ward (Ride 24/7), Sam Gardner( Cannondale),Tony Kiss () & Chris Spence (Felt-Colbornes-Hargroves RT). Working well together they quickly established a lead of 40 seconds, race leader, Colton Jarisch (Felt-Colborne-Hargroves RT) missed the move and the race started to slip away from the “Red Jersey”. Teammate Spence did not contribute to the pace setting but the gap grew out to over a minute with three 5 mile laps remaining, Spence, was though picking up the time bonuses on the line. The bunch, driven by Guernsey Velo reduced the gap at the bell but they never got close on the short 5 mile loop around Furzebrook. It was the fresher legs of Spence that took the stage, attacking hard on the steepest part of the climb; he gained time but not quite enough for the overall. It was a bitter-sweet race for the Colborne team, Robert Ward misjudged a corner on the first lap and ended up in a field, Ward also had problems with his gears that effectively took him out of the race and the service of Jarisch. John Heaton Armstrong dropped back to help Ward and the pair began to chase only for Heaton –Armstrong to puncture, both failed to finish, it was just one of those days. “That’s bike racing! Jarisch would ruefully say later. The Primera Purbeck two Day successfully employed British Cycling Accredited marshalls on the race, with no problems reported. A couple of "OFFS" in the first few laps due to damp autumn roads, fortunately no serious injuries
Rider Reaction...
Scott Gurnett
“Yes very good! I have not won since February, a couple of springtime pursuits. I was not expecting it I am very pleased but I think my dad is more excited about it than I am. I am normally good after a hard day, I like hills, I live on Exmoor, within two minutes I am climbing, I can’t go anywhere without climbing hills. My dad always says I do too much work, he is probably right! This is my first year racing, I want to go as far as I can”
Chris Spence
“The break just kind of rolled off, they put heads down and we were gone, I just policed it to be honest, I felt quite bad but that’s what you have to do. Two of our guys had crashed, Colton is in the leaders jersey, I did not know where I was with guys in the move on GC, I didn’t want to take it away, win the primes, win the stage but still not win the overall! The break was working really well, Scott was very strong, riding very well, its team work I had to sit on the back I couldn’t drive it, I would have looked an idiot”
Mike Ward
We got away at the prime, we descended pretty fast but we were all a bit wimpy round the corners because of the early crash. I was trying to conserve energy, Chris was sat on the back which was fair enough. Everyone did their fair share. It would be nicer to have a bit more fitness I have tailed off towards the end of the season, drinking beer & eating cakes do me know good”
Sam Gardner
I got across to the break pretty quick, the first lap was hard, everyone worked, Chris was not doing very much for obvious reasons, the primes ruined the impetus of the break but that’s racing, when Chris went at the bottom of the climb I did not have much left”
Tony Kiss
“Chris was sat on the back, I had a few words with him to get him to work but understand why he didn’t, he rode well and deserved to win. The descent was a bit scary it was slippy on the first few laps, when it dried out it was ok. I knew the Felt guys would be out to control it so I attacked when I could. My legs were tired after two days in the break”

Primera Purbeck 2 Day, Jarisch Takes Stage 1

Colton Jarisch (Felt-Colborne-Hargroves RT) won the opening 50 mile stage of the Primera Purbeck 2 day, winning an exciting uphill finish above Lulworth Cove in Dorset. Jarisch had animated the race, escaping on the third lap with Tony Kiss (Dynamic Bicycles UK/RPC). The pair got away across Bovington Heath and built a lead of 40 seconds and with the Felt-Colborne team controlling the bunch the move looked good. However the gap was down to 23 seconds at the bell and the remains of the peloton were altogether the final time through East Lulworth.The headwind descent making it difficult for the duo to stay clear. Robert Ward, John Heaton-Armstrong & Chris Spence drilled it across the heath for Jarisch and although the finale was tight the 26 year old Texan deserved the win. Unattached Hugh Knudsen grabbed second ahead of Rob ward. Knudsen had ridden an aggresive race and will be in the mix on day two. A group of nine had gone clear after the long neutralised section, only to be reeled in before the second climb of Newtown hill. The long drag up from the village of Wool took its toll on the 80 strong field with riders being dropped from the start. Jarisch will be well supported on stage two and it seems only some brave, attacking riding can stop the Felt-Colborne boys!
“It was tough, a pretty windy exposed course, I was away in a little two man break, we got away on the fast part of the course surprisingly, we got some time bonuses but we got caught after the descent. My team were really organised, we kept it all together. My team did it they rode perfectly.”
"A windy circuit, the winding roads strung it out good, the attacks were going on the hill, of course, we agreed to lead Colton out, I got boxed in a way back but managed to work my way back"
