Huge congratulations to youth member, Daniel Thompson, who has won the U14 age category in the Ulster International Youth Tour in Northern Ireland over the weekend.

Below is a list of how he got on in each round and overall placings across the event

Stages –

I think that we can all agree that this is an absolutely phenomenal achievement, not only with it being across the water but up against some tough competition from across the UK & Ireland!

Velo 29 Winter Series

Round 4 – 5 Feb 2022

A good turn out of Cleveland Wheelers today for the last round of the Velo 29 Winter Series at Croft. There were no podium places but all riders rode well. Well done to Dan Waring, Peter Gunn, Rohan Rayner-Smith and David Waring. The gale force winds didn’t help proceedings!

Dan Waring tied for the first overall for the 4th cats in the series. He may have gone better but he couldn’t compete in the last 4th cat race as his previous good showings had moved him up to 3rd cat.

Round 3 – 29 Jan 2022

Congratulations to Dan Waring on his second place in the 4th cat race.

It was a repeat of his second place last Saturday. Good news – this result moves him up from a fourth cat rider to a third.

Congratulations also to fellow Wheelers, Rohan Rayner-Smith and David Waring (Dan’s cousin) for completing the race in the very trying weather conditions. It was David’s first ever race.

Racing Special Events

C & S Tyres Circuit Of Welbury

Friday 13th August saw the running of the Tyne Tees Road League’s “C & S Tyres Circuit Of Welbury”. Many of the region’s top teams were in action, including a good turn out from Cleveland Wheelers, both from the Catley Lakeman/CWCC RT and from an enthusiastic group of “amateur racers”, some racing for the very first time.

The Open (“Elite”) race was won by Catley Lakeman/CWCC rider Matty Dobbin with Ross Turner of Fietsen Tempo in second and Aaron Preston of Catley Lakeman/CWCC in third.

The Masters/Novice race was won at a canter by Dave Lawson of Fietsen Tempo with Chris Mather of Derwentside CC in second and CWCC’s Peter Gunn (the smirking assassin) in third. Luke Robinson of Fietsen Tempo picked up the junior win.

Many, many thanks to Marcus Smith for getting this race on. Organising a road race is no easy task, especially now, and it was greatly appreciated not just by CWCC but by all the teams in the region. A great night was had by all who attended and hopefully the event can re-establish itself in the region’s racing fixtures.

Here is a link to a gallery of photos from the night, all taken on the start/finish line by CWCC secretary Steve Tilly in “burst mode” to hopefully give a real feel for the action. Feel free to download any photos you want for your own personal use, feel free to credit CWCC in any that you do use.
