Many thanks to organisers, timekeepers, marshals and competitors for making this, once again, a very successful event. It has been difficult getting events on this year so it was especially appreciated that you all turned up in great numbers, very heartening to see. Thank you all too for complying with the Covid regulations and keeping the event safe, hopefully next year we can get back to something like normality, though that seems a long way off just yet.
Thanks once again to our sponsors Contemporary Stokesley Hair Salon, without whom our prize fund could not be so generous, and to Fietsen Tempo CC for the Rob Hughes Shield.
It’s less than a month now until the hill climb double-header of Clay Bank and Carlton Bank, held on Sunday 27th September.
This year the Stockton Wheelers event (Carlton) starts earlier so as to join more seamlessly with Cleveland Wheelers event (Clay). The idea is to make it more attractive to people who want to try both, no hanging round for hours between events. The plan is to give people riding both events the same number in both events so they don’t have to bother changing over numbers etc between events. As always there will be a prize for the best combined time.
Get your entries in, entry closes in 2 weeks!
Many thanks to Brian Gleeson for his report and photos.
Cleveland Wheelers Cycling Club held their annual start of the season Hilly 21 time-trial race around the Stokesley area on Sunday. 62 riders had entered the competition which started at Stokesley and travelled up to Hutton Rudby against a strong wind, but then returned to Stokesley along the A172 with the wind behind them. The race then turned south towards Great Broughton, Ingleby Greenhow, Battersby, and Easby to finish just before the junction of Battersby Avenue and the A173 Stokesley-Great Ayton road, having first negotiated the flooding on Battersby Avenue.
After the first few riders, an early lead was taken by 18 year old Espoir rider, Jake Stephenson ( Triology Manhealth), in a time of 50:14 and this was held for half an hour before Rob Carter (Cleveland Wheelers) pipped him by 9 seconds. Richard Lilleker (Cleveland Wheelers) then beat him by 1 second. The faster riders began to arrive with Euan Sanderson (Cleveland Wheelers) taking the lead with a time of 49:36, before Marcel Schubert (Darlington CC) arrived 5 minutes later to take third place in 46:31. Five minutes after Chris Smart (GTR- Return to Life) finished to take first place in a time of 46:10. Second place went to veteran rider Keith Murray in a time of 46:39.
The fastest lady rider was veteran Anna Turvey (Drag2Zero) in a time of 50:22 with veteran rider Kate Sanderson (Cleveland Wheelers) in second place in 1.03:19.
