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.

Unfortunately TLI no longer do day licences for racing on the open road so a licence is mandatory.

Ron Smith Ride Sunday 9th April.
Posted on 2017-03-17 by Janice Wakefield

The Ron Smith rides will be run over the usual distances of 25, 40 or 62 miles with a refreshment stop at Fonaby Top for all three rides. Start and finish will be at Brigsley Village Hall which will be open from 8.30am for signing on. Rides will leave from 9am and maps will be available. Over the past few years monies raised at this event have been passed to the Lincolnshire Air ambulance. For 2017 any money raised will be passed to Keiran Hotson. Keiran is now in his final year as a Junior rider and to gain valuable experience prior to moving into the senior ranks his race programme will include events all over the UK and Europe.To have a local rider, who started out with LRCC, competing at the higher levels of our sport is great for the club's profile. While part of a supported Team he will still need to contribute financially to be able to fully benefit from what will be a very busy schedule. The club are pleased to be able to contribute to aid Keiran over the coming season.
