Hilly TT results 23/4/19

A hilly TT record turnout tonight for the battle up the local hills.  A good mix of abilities including a few on road bikes.  The slightly shortened course due to road works in Holt meant a higher ratio of climbing to flat land.  Despite having to navigate a newly gritted section on the main road, slow cars and deer crossings everyone got round safely.

Mike Padfield won in 41.51 (average 24 mph), followed by James Lowe (42.00) and Aiden Bond (43.02).  The fastest on a road bike was Bryce Pegg with 43.29.  It was good to see a number of riders including Brian Platts and Paul Harrowing on their first TTs since their winter hibernation!

Thanks to the timekeepers and marshals.

10m TT results 16/4/19

A good turnout for the second TT of the year on the B10/5 course.  There was a very fast ride by Sam Proctor (Ride Harder and a professional triathlete) in a 20.44, (the fastest April ride ever!).  This was 37 seconds off the course record so based on the time of the year and conditions the record could get broken this year! Matt Ratcliffe (North Norfolk Wheelers) was second followed by Kim Morrision (Drag2Zero).  Fastest on handicap was Mike Padfield.  Thanks to the timekeepers, marshals and supporters!

Time Trial Results 7th and 9th April 2019

Two events in quick succession kick started the club time trial season. The first at Horsford was hampered by roadworks at the start, meaning we couldn’t use a revised route that avoided a new roundabout at the end.  The TT was therefore shortened slightly. Despite rain starting just as the riders set off, 12 brave souls had good rides to test their early season fitness.  Fresh from temporary retirement Matt Ratcliffe got the fastest time (21.25), followed by Andrew Knowles (22.12) and then Aiden Bond (22.26). Junior rider Callum Stedman had a good ride with a 24.41.

Two days later it was back ‘home’ to Pretty Corner.  The conditions weren’t much better, with a cold north easterly (5 C). Andrew Knowles had the fastest time with a 22:58, followed by Graham Denny (23.11) and Carl Mace (24.15). Paul Furness did his first time trial in seven years and posted a respectable 26.57.

Time trials now come weekly throughout the season, with the next event a 10m TT at Pretty Corner on the 16th April.  We also have the eagerly anticipated Open 10m TT on 22nd June (bookings via the CTT website).  Fingers crossed for some warmer evenings ahead…

15m TT results 16/9/18

A small but select group posted some very good times on a blustery day.  Nick Partridge posted the fastest club 15 TT of the year (despite stopping to put his chain back on) and says he will return next year to do the 10 – so be warned!  Nigel got a PB and Geoff posted a fast target for himself next year.

10m TT Pretty Corner 4/9/18

The penultimate 10m TT of the year saw a change to more typical autumn weather with grey clouds and a strong wind, which was reflected in the slower times. Luke Pettit was fastest (so is able to retire now!), followed by Geoff Frost and Bradley Nelson. Phil West was fastest on handicap.

10m TT Thursford Fun Comp 28/8/18

Another good turnout and some good competition between the North Norfolk Wheelers and other local clubs including ten from East Coast Riders of Fakenham (mainly competing on road bikes).

The competition winners are as follows:

Overall fastest man & lady Graham Denny Kim Charlton/Amanda Marshall tied
**Fastest VET on standard man & lady Graham Denny (+4:31) Amanda Marshall (+1:57)
Fastest Club Handicap Time Philip West
Fastest on road bike (without tri-bars) man & lady Rob Kitchen Lorraine Jarvis
Fastest two-up (road or TT bike) Matt Whitaker/Sean Price
Fastest non – NN Wheeler rider (not a 1st or 2nd claim member) Jonny O’Neil

(Phil West you can collect your medal at the next time trial)

**For those who want to work out their age handicap (VET on standard time) click here:vet standard

The event was run at the earlier time to avoid darkness at the finish, however due to a couple of riders getting held up by increased traffic around Fakenham this is likely to be moved to earlier in the season next year at a later start time.

Thanks to the timekeepers, marshals and riders.  See you next Tuesday for the penultimate 10m TT at Pretty Corner.

A concentration of 10m time trials at this time of year at Pretty Corner saw the return of Will Dorsett (API Metro) with the second fastest time in recent years (20:42) on the 21st August, followed by Toby Morrell and Graham Denny. Luke Pettit continued improving with the fastest handicap time and a PB.  PBs kept falling over these races for a number of other riders achieving some late season form including Guy Thorold, Philip West and Nigel Walsh.
