Declan wins Clieves Hill Road Race

Declan got the better of his 2 remaining breakaway partners on the final climb up to the finish. After the 3 had attacked from a well established breakaway that formed earlier in the race.

Great win a deceptively difficult course.

Great write up from Kris Zentek and results from Velonet.

Declan wins Bickerstaffe RR

Declan wins Bickerstaffe Road race, with Jonny Freeman coming 5th (2nd in bunch sprint) after being led out by Joe.

Declan was aggressive as usual and broke away twice on his own to no avail, third time lucky and with 2 companions he stayed away and destroyed them in the sprint.

Jonny did a great job in the bunch sprint and came 2nd in a close battle. Well done Declan.

Litherland Circuit League 2015

As you will be aware the Litherland Circuit League twenty consecutive weeks series for 2015 is due to start on Wednesday the 8thApril, 2015 and therefore, the Committee would ask you to remind your members for as many of them to affiliate prior to their first visit to Litherland Sports Park.  This is to try to avoid too many hold ups at the signing on desk especially due to the light restrictions on the first couple of weeks of the series.

Attached is a copy of the riders registration form with all the details shown including where they should be sent to.

If, your club/teams want to make the riders registration less your club will need to register as well and therefore, you will find a copy of the necessary form also, attached.

Many thanks.

Chaingang 2015

It’s that time of year again. The South Liverpool Chaingang will be starting again today.

Meet at Wingrays Garage ready to leave at 6:30pm.

The ride will be every Tuesday and Thursday.

The route for now will head out towards Warrington, Great Sankey and Bold Heath. Then back down the express way to Widnes retracing the route we took out.

This ride is done at race pace and you will get left behind once the ride proper starts in Hale.

Lights are a must.

If you are new to the chaingang listen to advice and look to see how it works as your ride.

Always respect other riders.

Race report

Races completed so far.

Clayton Spring Classic

25 Declan Hudson Liverpool Century RC

Great result for Declan, the Clayton Spring Classic is run as a handicap, so when the Elites catch up things pick up.
It’s a tough course with one long drag of a climb, with the rest of the course never letting up with cross winds or technical descents.

54th Eddie Soens Memorial Cycle Race

A major split in the bunch saw all the guys who had entered being withdrawn before the finish. Better luck next time.

St Helens CRC Pimbo

18 Jonathan Freeman Liverpool Century RC
21 Declan Hudson Liverpool Century RC
46 Stephen Stuart Liverpool Century RC
62 Simon Higgins Liverpool Century RC
63 Anthony Weston Liverpool Century RC
67 Graham Prentice Liverpool Century RC
69 Graeme Veevers Liverpool Century RC
70 Alex Nurse Liverpool Century RC

Excellent turnout, a few years ago there would be only 1 or 2 racing. All the guys dug deep and showed a spirited performance!
A crash on the penultimate lap saw the bunch ripped in half, with only Declan and Jonny making the split.
Pimbo is always a tough finish and the boys did well considering how new to racing they are!!

Lots to look forward to in the coming season.

First track chaingang a success

A great start to the track season last night. Some new riders and some old hands. Two groups formed with riders swapping between them as they saw fit. A mix of chaingang, swapping in pairs and half lap changing. It was good to see people working hard then sitting up for a lap to take a breather. Then getting back into the mix, especially the juniors. Joe, Sav and George all put in a graft trying to stay on the wheel of the Colin Hayes train.
I think we will keep this format for the next few weeks at least. We covered 33 miles at an average of 20.6 mph with stops. If you fancy a go come down, we are running road bikes.
