Clogged up rear mechs would become a familiar sight on Sunday, with a few bikes being damaged or just unable to change gear. Stadt Moors is one of the ‘roadie’ friendly courses with less technical skills needed and more brute force to carry you over the mud and grass.
The Century are getting a great group going in all the categories, with all of us competing well, fighting our own battles against familiar foes (friends really).
Johnny Mac made an appearance and claimed 2nd in the Senior race, with only a couple of weeks under his belt.
Results aren’t known for now but I’ll update them as soon as they are published.
With only 3 races left it’s all to play for, leaving it wide open for snatching a place or two.
There has been a temporary issue with the website. You may find some pages blank or items missing. Please bear with us as we resolve the issue.
Hi All, meet up at track gates at 9:00 this coming Sunday OR entrance of the old Mersey Tunnel at 9:45 for our annual ride in memory of George.
The ride will take us out through the Tunnel and the Wirral for a café stop at the Two Mills(Eureka) at about 11:15.
The route back home will be via Upton near Chester, Mickle Trafford then around the back of Helsby and Frodsham before heading over The Runcorn Bridge .Back to club about 2:30 to 3:00 ish.
Pace will be about steady 15mph with distance total aprox 60 miles.
Last year we did a charity collection on this ride with the money collected -approx. £100-going to the Myeloma Research (the disease from which George died).
This year ,following Andy Gibson’s passing , it would be great if we could make donations to support SOBS, which is a charity that works with those bereaved by suicide .
I’ll happily collect donations at ‘The Mills’ and then pass them on to Rebecca.
Hope to see you on Sunday

Results The Lazer North West Cyclo Cross League
Race: Manchester Wheelers Cyclo-Cross NW3
Mick Style’s (Manchester Wheelers) course was one that contained all elements that you’d expect to find at cross event. It tested rider skill and physical ability with it’s long drags and tight technical elements. 2 Century members rode their first race and on the face of it appeared to enjoy it, I’m sure inner demons where asking the usual question during the race ‘why am I doing this?’
11 riders in one event, fantastic turn out. Plenty of cross action left this year if you fancy it!!

There will be a ride to Rufford Marina leaving the Clubrooms at the Hub at 9 am on Sunday 5th.
The ride will be approximately 50 miles and ridden at a steady pace.
Just a quick update in regards to the winter Club Cluster of Training sessions at Litherland. The sessions will be priced at £5 per session and will bePAY ON THE NIGHT ONLY. The sessions will start on the 14th October 7-9pm and will run for 20 weeks in the lead up to the 2015 road season. The CCT sessions are for Youth A and B category racing cyclists (please contact event organiser for availability for junior riders and high performing C’s going into B on 1/1/15).
The CCT’s will have a similar format to last year’s sessions and will have a primary fitness focus for the evening and will culminate in progressive training exercises driven by challenging the physical and technical demands of racing cyclists. Riders should have a suitable roadworthy bike and have experience at riding in groups including a chain gang. All riders must have fully working front & back bike lights to attend these sessions.
The CCT sessions are a great opportunity for riders to maintain and improve their fitness and technique over the winter months. The North West is leading the way with these sessions and club support is vital in making them a success. I would like to encourage club coaches to attend these sessions to support and pass on their expertise in developing a strong racing focus coaching session. After the circuit costs have been met there should be a small amount of surplus income to reimburse club coaches for travelling costs.
Please forward this message onto: club riders, club websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds, other parents who may not be the in the communication network of this group. More information on these sessions can also be found on the British Cycling website.
If you need any further information then please do not hesitate to contact myself on the below details and I hope to see many of you on the 14thOctober at Litherland.
