It has been a delight to read the News articles in recent weeks to see many of our racing members achieving personal bests at a variety of distances.  Well done to you all and enjoy a well earned rest before your winter training begins.  The old adage “winter miles leads to summer smiles” is still true today.

Club Runs continue to be well supported, be it Sunday “café ride” or the Saturday/Sunday more serious training ride.  There should be something for everyone to join in with on the week-end.

Enjoy many safe miles over the winter.

Personnel Bests by Members over 25m

The Realteam 25 mile TT on 23rd August proved to be a delight for some riders and a cause of anguish for others. Due to the poor weather this summer combined with a poor weather forecast only 53 riders started from a full field in the main men’s event. Similarly, in the women/junior/overflow event only 67 out of a field of 108 started.  Most of those non-starters must have been hugely disappointed when they saw the results. The majority of riders in the overflow event recorded personal bests, often with substantial improvements. Four Acme riders started and all achieved personal bests. Nadine Cannon goes from strength to strength and on this occasion improved from 1.05.30 to an amazing 58.56. Simon Kinsey must have been all smiles too, reducing his time from 1.03.35 to 59.15. Our veterans were not to be left out either with Jeff Rees going under the hour while improving from 1.00.59 to 59.32. Fiona Davies only features occasionally in time trials, her main activity being duathlons, but she too, the oldest of our competitors, improved from 1.09.09 to 1.08.49.

Club 10 mile Championship

_DSC2006bThe Welsh Championship 10 mile Time Trials organised by the Pontypool RCC provided the platform for our own Acme 10 mile Championship. Held on the R10/17 Abergavenny – Raglan course, Alec Morris was looking forward to reducing his personal best but unfortunately crashed on the return leg and failed to finish. Three other club riders were very close together on times with Simon Kinsey recording 25-22, Tom Stoddart 25-03 and Nadine Cannon just one second slower in 25-04 which gave her 8th place of the eighteen females who finished.  Jeff Rees continues to churn out good times and passed the timekeeper in 23-27 while Dai Long produced a personal best by eight seconds to become our 2015 10 mile TT Champion with 22-41.


Nadine Achieves Gold

Nadine Cannon has certainly found good form recently, following up her Gold Standard ride at 10 miles with another at 25 miles. In the Realteam 25 on the 19th July she recorded a great 1-03-19.  In the same event, Simon Kinsey finished in 1-03-35, Jeff Rees 1-00-59, Ross Morgan 58-06, Dai Long 56-56 and Neale Lewis 55-44.
