Result of Club Hill Climb on 18th August on GH/41 Ranmore Common Road. 1120 yards. Once again thanks to Peter and Tony Wells helping at the start, as well as at the few of our evening time trials this shortened season.The evening was warm with a low hazy sun and a light south easterly wind. The traffic was the busiest that I have ever seen in the nearly 60 years of being at the hill. There were lots of cyclists going up and down both on road and mountain bikes, cars, one towing a horse box, then two hired transit type vans.The vans went pass very slowly, then stopped about 100 yards beyond the start just before Rob Orr was due to go off. We could see they were having difficulty turning round, then they came back down past us again slowly.It had been decided to delay Rob starting until they were out of the way.After all of that, James Seymour produced the fastest time, winning his first club event, after doing some fast 10 mile times recently. Mike page was runner up, 20 seconds down on James.Second fastest time were done by second claim member, Ivan Newsome only 2.6 seconds slower than James.Ivan had improved 30 seconds on his time two years ago.Because of Covid19 and the Stepping Stones not being open for meals and drinks, we weren’t able to round off this short season there.
Result of this years only Club 25 mile event on 9th August on H25/8 on the A31 between Farnham & the Alton By-Pass
Thanks to Peter for doing the result and to Tony Rogers for timing, also to Tony Wells for assisting Tony.
Thanks to Dudley Samuals for putting out all the warning signs for this course and Colin Shales for marshalling the Holybourne turn.
It was a hazy morning with the sunny only burning through after riders had finished.
A north easterly wind was against the riders each time they headed to Farnham meant a tough last six miles.
Even so there were some good times done by most riders with almost half of the field under the hour.
Paul Deen was the winner, hitting top form since the lock down with his third fastest ever time.
Just 27 seconds slower Paul Haywood was in second place on his new Planet X TT bike that was only finished the day before.
Paul Deen was also fastest on handicap time with Isaac Griffiths the runner beating Mike Stephens by one second.
Result of Club 10 mile event Tuesday 28th July on G10/42 the A24 Holmwood course.
Thanks to Peter for timing and producing the result, also to Tony Wells, for helping at the finish.
For the third event running, a big thanks to Chris Rosam for doing the warning signs.
So pleasing to see him back racing now that hospital treatment, that started in December has finished.
Good to see Dudley Samuals, Emma Dodds, Richard Varian & Mr Page out supporting the riders.
With roadworks scheduled, we weren’t sure if the event would go ahead until late afternoon.
First we had a good report back from Harry Turnbull, then Colin Gray later confirmed that the road was still clear.
Then as the first riders were reaching the turn, cones were just being put out because the A24 was being close south of the roundabout.
It was a bright evening with a light north westerly wind, almost the right conditions for this course with many riders doing good times.
There were the maximum 30 entries, our biggest Club Event field for many years, with riders keen to have the chance to race again.
Paul Haywood the winner possibly took advantage of Paul Deen being unable to ride and the runner up James Seymour improved 17 seconds on the time he did Saturday on this course.
Jaak Van Der Werff a new member this year, was chased all of the way round by Paul. Jaak’s fast time was done on a road bike with no aero aids, so a lot more to come.
There were personal best times by James Seymour, Rob Orr & Andy Long who improved 2 minutes 20 seconds to take the handicap award from Chris Parry the runner up.
Every rider that rode the last Club 10 mile at Kingsfold two weeks ago improved on their times there.
Result of Club 10 Mile Event Tuesday 14 July on G10 /41 at Kingsfold using A24/A29.
Thanks to Peter for timing and doing the result for us.
It was good to see a lot of supporters out, Tony Wells, Colin Shales, Lionel Barden, Brian Vandervilt & Simon McCarthy.
Since we last saw Simon he has had a lot of illness, so was great seeing him out riding his bike again.
This was our first event ever using this little used course, although it was suggested by our Bob Stapley and measured by Robin Johnson in 2009.
A field of 16 riders showed that members were keen to get back racing again
An hour before the start there was a very local shower. There were wet roads from Okewood Hill cross road on the A29, then on Marches Road up towards the A24.
Fortunately there was only a short damp stretch by the time riders started.
It was overcast with a very light North Westerly wind and was a good evening, even with the many rough surfaces fast times were done.
Paul Deen was the winner of the first club event, back after a break of 17 weeks with Paul Haywood runner up.
Isaac Griffiths was next, doing a surprise personal best, improving 16 seconds on his ride last year on the faster Crawley to Horsham course.
Neil Crozier after a very long break did a good come back time time. He still holds four club team records from 20 years ago.
Please find below the events list at the time of writing for Epsom CC 2019.
It was another warm evening with a low sun and a light easterly cross wind, so no help either way.
Seven Epsom riders were slower than their best times this season, done six weeks earlier in an event on this course.
Paul Haywood had yet another win with Adrian Blacker in second place just over a minute slower.
Andrew Giller was the only Epsom rider to do a personal best time and won the handicap award by over a minute from Chris Newsome.
Epsom were well clear of Norwood Paragon on Inter-Club points mainly because Norwood only had four starters.
Thanks very much.
