The last evening T.T. of the season was well supported (maximum 20 riders) on a calm warm evening. These conditions often turn out to be hard going as most of the riders soon found out.
The winner, Lance Childs, had no problems with the conditions, racing round the course to finish after 22m 35s. We believe this is a course record for a Junior. Well done Lance, a great ride for a junior.
Fastest club rider was Rodney Smith with 23m 29s, just 10s faster than Keith Walker. Surprising everyone was Phill Appleby (Gen Sec) who was 3rd fastest Wigmore rider with 25m 36s. This was Phill’s first event for 16 months and he has not forgotten how to spin the pedals round. New member Tom Odell rode his first evening T.T. and recorded a good time of 27m 33s and took top position in the Handicap League.
Top placings in the various leagues were:
Scratch, Club events, Anderson points, Rodney Smith, Keith Walker, Phill Appleby. Vets, Rodney Smith, Keith Walker, Dave Bishop. Hcp, Tom Odell, Cameron Carthew, Phil Appleby. Junior, Dylan Harman.
Dylan was the only Wigmore junior to ride and has gained enough points to win the Junior league. At 14 years of age, Dylan has kept going each week and gradually improved his times. Well done Dylan.
It is still possible to get more points in the Anderson Points league by finishing in the top 20 places in open events until the end of September.
Many thanks to all the helpers who were, Anthony Bee, John Booty, Paul Buckley, Kevin Ford, Clin Maisey, Richard Masters, Dave Smith, Graham Strugnell and Martin Trice.
The next club promotion will be our open Hill Climb. This take’s place on September 27th, at Hollingbourne Hill. The closing date for entries is September 15th.
If you are not entering contact Anthony or Martin and offer to help on the day. Let us make it another successful event, similar to the evening T.T.

It was going to be a hard 10 miles on a warm but very windy Wednesday evening. Only 4 of our 12 club members managed to improve their time’s in this seasons evening TTs. Even the winner Joe Austin was 11s slower, he could only manage a 21m 52s ride. Well done Joe you are in a class of your own on Wednesday evenings.
Most improved rider was Franco Dela Mura with a +15s, closely followed by Dylan Harman + 12s. Not far behind them were Dave Wastall + 4s and Jake Dobbins + 2s. The last three all recording PBs. The largest deficient was 35s. This means only 50s separated our 12 members in the handicap competition. With just two remaining events to ride and points ranging from 10 to 1 for 1st to 10th place, most of you can finish in the top three placings.
This week’s top 3 positions in the various leagues were as follows:
Scratch, Club events and Anderson points, Keith Walker, Jamie Harris, Julien Barton. Vets, Keith Walker, Julien Barton, Dave Bishop. Hcp, Franco Dela Mura, Dylan Harman, Dave Wastall. Junior, Frankie Finch, Jake Dobbins, Dylan Harman.
It is good to see Rosie Wallace supporting the club events again. Rosie joined the club about seven years ago and represented Wigmore C.C. in Go-ride and junior events. Rosie is now a student at Nottingham University and rides for LIV a ladies sponsored team. With all her studies and pub crawls I do not know where she finds time to keep fit.
Many thanks to all the helpers who were Anthony Bee, Paul Buckley, Rowan Dobbins, Mike Finch, Kevin Ford and Clin Maisey.
Next Wednesday ( 19-8-20 ) we will be at Iwade starting at 1845 Hrs.

A full field of 30 riders (22-07-2020) gave the organisers plenty of work to do!
The club had 10 riders competing with more non-vets than vets. I can’t remember when that last happened. It was good to see three Go-Ride members competing, Frankie Finch just missed a P.B. whilst Dylan Harman improved by 1m 40s.
Meanwhile, young Jake Dobbins must have been pleased with his time of 31m 39s on his first ever 10 mile T.T.
Another member to improve was Marin Stoichkov, riding his second event he improved by 32s.
Do not compare your time with winner Neil Harringan’s time, Neil is not human he is a robot! Congratulations to Neil on an amazing time which we believe is a course record.
Top places in the various league competitions were as follows:
Scratch, club events, and Anderson points were Keith Walker, Jamie Harris, Julien Barton.
Vets, Keith Walker, Julien Barton, Steve Harman.
Hcp, Dylan Harman, Marin Stoichkov, Steve Harman.
Junior: Frankie Finch, Jake Dobbins, Dylan Harman.
Many thanks to all the helpers, they were, Anthony Bee, John Booty, Paul Buckley, Mike Finch, Kevin Ford, Clin Maisey, Len Osborn, Robert Philbrook and Alex Woolley.
Next Wednesday (29-07-2020) the start time is 19:15. Hope to see all of you there.
