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.

Watch the video below to get an understanding

 

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A major split in the bunch saw all the guys who had entered being withdrawn before the finish.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

Club rides 18/01/2015

Hi All, meet at the Track gates at 9:00 on Sunday if you fancy a steady B Ride out to Ashurst Country Park to support the Century Riders riding in the Cyclo Cross event.(About 15 miles out.)


We should get there about 10:30 .The weather forecast is very cold but not icy overnight from what I can see.(Look out for final Facebook Post on Saturday)

Wrap up very warm and bring /ride in a wind jacket etc if you’ve got one.

We’ll go one from Ashurst to a café stop at Primrose Hill and make a total ride of about 45 miles.

Ashurst is en route to Rufford Marina so we could do a combined ride and if some of the A group/faster B riders(see attachment) want to go on and make a longer ride they can but I think that would be too much for me at the mo’ and maybe some others.

Cheers

Steve Scholfield

Racing group Sunday ride 18/01/2015

Distance and stops still dependant on the weather but hoping around 80 plus.

Meeting Wingrays at 9

or bridge bus stop 9.30
