Re: Last of the summer race ramblings:2019

:) LVRC BLETCHINGLEY 08/09/2019 Bletchingly is well known as a tough course by South East Road Racers. It does have some flat bits but essentially you’re either climbing a lot or descending - two things you don’t tend to do much if you’re on the famous Hillingdon/Velopark/flat Hog Hill race diet Hmm...

Re: Last of the summer race ramblings:2019

Oh Lordy - I’m behind on these reports! “Dinosaurs at the Palace” 27/08/2019 A ridiculously long drawn out completely biased account of… “How the LVRC cat C race was won” Palace used to scare me! It’s the antithesis to that other legendary London race circuit – Hillingdon. Now with its lovely wide, ...

LVRC Southend Wheelers - Over the Hill Criteriums -28/07/2019 - Hog Hill It's been a while :wink: I spent most of last week plodding up mountain roads in the French Alps and this of course would be great preparation for the Southend Wheelers Over the hill criterium; right? Add to that - cooler tempe...

Re: You tube cycling vlogs!

I personally watch: jasperverkuijl -- Really good high end race insight Ed Laverack - Welsh pro conti rider -- Vlogs can be a bit scrappy/long (not always straight to the point), but he's a pro continental rider, previously for JLT Condor, and an insane hill climber Bikerader -- hill climb diaries ...

LVRC: Hog Hill (16/09/18) Last Sunday’s pre race warm up ended in spectacular fashion - Ouch! As a consequence I found myself scrambling around on my hands and knees outside H.M.Prison Holloway. A skinny black dude, decked out in garish yellow skin suit, searching through some bushes might ordinaril...

LVRC: C/D Race Toachim Vet/PS+Cyclewear Series. 09/09/18 The world’s a changing place – everyone’s a winner on school sports day, miserable kids can now see a school psychologist and that clip round the ear you used to get has been re classified as a child abuse. I reckon Simon Brooks (VC St Raphae...

BC Masters Race, Hog Hill (Redbridge Cycle Centre) 27/08/18 I’m nervous! Hey! Common! What’s Valentino doing? Is he braking? This is the 5th time we’ve descended the Hoggerberg and he’s minding the gap rather than closing it. So now my front wheels overlapping his back one. He’s drifting too; uninte...

Re: What do I need to race (besides a bike...)

Will drop the organiser a line and see what he says. Day license would be fine for first go, then I'll have a look at membership if all goes well. Have you ridden in a bunch before ? On Zwift :) Plenty of club rides / sportives and the odd chain gang but no racing. I imagine I would be hanging on t...

Re: Cyclopark: Aug-23-2018

I think you need to pitch for a Channel 4 TV slot for this... would make a change from it showing dull assed trumfalumps who fall off at the very sight of a blade of grass bending in the wind nearly impaling innocents with their outrageous tri bars which are deemed so necessary for pootling along a...

Cyclopark 23/08/2018 Mario Manelfi is a street fighter! Hard as nails; broke his collar bone and his back in crash two seasons ago but is still racing. He looks like he could survive in the Amazon jungle feeding off shredded pythons skins and coconut shells. Once upon a time he was a promising 1st C...

Thanks Mathew, the night after an evening race I may as well not bother going to bed! I never seem to get much sleep these days :(
After a race 4 hours if I'm lucky :/ :)

Hillingdon: 6th September Masters - Over 50's Occasionally, you can engender a pattern of attacking with other like-minded souls that ensures the bunch inevitably has to take a collective break. So...the next attack typically secures a nice little freehold and hopefully... you're in it. After a spic...
