Tonight (29th Aug.) sees the Club's Hill Climb Championship. It is the final TT event for 2017. Start is 6.45pm at the cross roads 3km(1.9miles) south of Ashby Hill top just off the A18. The route goes towards Wold Newton. This event carries a bit of history as it has been on the same hill every year since it all began in October 1970, so this will be the 47th event. See Strava Segment Link test here The TT League Tables show some final medal awards are very close. Remember even if you have 12 counting rides a better result at the hill climb will replace your lowest score to date. It really is "All To Play For". So you could move youself into a medal position or change the colour of which medal you receive for just over 2 mins pain (well maybe a bit more for most of us).

On Saturday 16th September 2017 LRCC are supporting Matt Porter in the running of the Ross Tiger. It results in Matt donating a £1000 lump sum into our club funds. This helps to keep our running costs down and is much appreciated. The requirement is as follows:- 13 helpers on the day and 3 rider marshalls for each of the two distances. Still need 1 rider marshall for the shorter distance and 6 helpers. The rider marshalls have free entry but have to be prepared to forgo riding for a time. They are required to look out for and stop and help any riders with a problem. The helpers need to be available all day, reporting at HQ around 6.15pm and finishing around 4.00pm. If you can help please ring me on 07870 271694.

Event two Handicap Road Races
Posted on 2017-05-31 by Janice Wakefield

The second of the three road races took place on Tuesday. The weather was excellent for bike riding, warm with only a light wind.
Handicapping was adjusted from event one with Helen and Troy setting off first followed by 6 riders in group 2 at 7 minutes, 5 riders in group 3 at 11 mins and the scratch group of 6 riders at 12 minutes. Group 2 worked well together to make best use of a 5 min head start on scratch. Their numbers reducing gradually as they pressed on to try and stay clear. Group 3 and 4 came together after around 8 miles of racing forming a good working group and pushed on to try and reel in the rest. The Chalkley two up duo put in a tremendous ride only getting caught on the final climb (so so close). The remnants of group two, now down to only 2 riders, stayed clear with Ian Smalley putting in a strong final climb to get the better of James Lawson. Andy Thomas again proved to be the strongest rider in the scratch group picking up 3rd place.
Many thanks to all those who helped, Marshals, Lead car drivers, Judges and HQ/Kitchen support. Such events are only possible because club members are willing to volunteer their time.
If any members who have not yet joined TLI but would like to ride the final event please visit the TLI web site ASAP to allow time to get your licence. Remember at present TLI do not allow disc brakes to ride mass start road events.
Members wishing to expand on the experience of riding these events could consider riding the Lincolnshire TLI Handicap League. Two events are planned to take place in this area during June and July. If you have any questions ring me on 07870271694.

Club Handicap road race 2nd May
Posted on 2017-05-04 by Janice Wakefield

The first of the three road races took place on Tuesday evening in cold blustery conditions. Firstly I wish to thank all those who helped, Marshals, Lead car drivers, Judges and HQ/Kitchen support.
Once out racing I'm sure most (If not all) of the competitors warmed up with the two short sharp climbs to tackle on the road up to the finish line. I hope it was not too cold for all the helper marshals positioned around the circuit. Fortunately the light was good enough to complete 4 laps for a total of 20 miles. The Handicapping was a bit difficult for event one with Pam and Helen setting off first followed by 7 riders in group 2 at 9 minutes and the scratch group of 10 riders at 12 minutes. With event one to look back on, the groups and timings, will be adjusted for 30th May (Event 2)
Both our lady competitors put in sterling performances to stay out front as long as possible with Pam only being caught a few miles before the finish. Group 2 worked well together despite their numbers reducing to 4 but they stuck to the task and finished 9 seconds in front of the fast approaching scratch group. With a final strong climb Rob Smith took first place followed by the 3 other members of his group.
The inclusion of an event HQ proved very popular and the same venue will be used for the other 2 events. I also wish to thank all those who raced. Everyone arrived early so we could start prompt and the standard of riding was excellent. All in all a great night that left me feeling both grateful and proud to be part of such a successful evenings racing. If any members who have not yet joined TLI but would like to ride the other 2 events please visit the TLI web site ASAP to allow time to get your licence. Remember at present TLI do not allow disc brakes to ride mass start road events. If you have any questions ring me on 07870271694.
