Summary

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.

Cleveland Wheelers Hillclimb 2020

This is usually an enjoyable spectacle for riders and spectators alike and attracts a fair gathering of people to cheer the riders on up the hill. However, under the current circumstances we would ask if you could kindly NOT come to spectate the event this year. It’s disappointing, I know, but it’s for the best and is in line with CTT guidance on the matter. If anyone decides that they are going to come and spectate we’d ask, in fact INSIST, that they keep well away from officials (including marshals) and participants.

Thank you for your understanding – hopefully this time next year we can get back to running and enjoying events as normal.

CWCC AGM 2020 – Update

CWCC have bowed to circumstances and will no longer be holding a face-to-face meeting this year. It was due to be Monday 21st but will now be postponed and held over Zoom (or other suitable platform). This is being investigated & trialled.

Many Thanks

CWCC Committee

Evening Series

The official results for Week 7 on  3 September are now on the website. They can be found at EVENING SERIES/Seamer Time Trial Series/Results 2020.

Evening Series – 3 Sept 2020

The preliminary results for last last night’s Evening Series can be found here.

There were some fast times last night. Harry Tanfield lowered his own course record from last year by 35 seconds to 16 minutes 47 seconds. Lauren Watson took a further 17 seconds off the previous overall women’s record with 22 minutes 40 seconds which is also the women’s road bike record. Rob Carter also bettered his own road bike record to 19 minutes 13 seconds.

This is the last event in this year’s mini series. Thanks to the organisers for putting it on in such trying circumstances.

Thanks also to everyone who took part. Hopefully we’ll see you all again next year.
