2019 Hope Gibbons Team Time Trial Results

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Congratulations to everyone who competed in the 2019 Hope Gibbons Team Time Trial. It was a great day for it and we had some fabulous and fast racing. For senior riders this is contested over a distance of 40 km, starting and finishing on Johnstone Street.

The winner of the Men’s challenge this year, in a time of 52 minutes and 24 seconds, is the ACM team of Ben Knight, Matt Webb-Smith, Mark Langlands and Dan Waluszewski. In second place, in a time of 54 minutes and 20 seconds were Tijs Robinson, Matt Seeley, Pete Mora and Angus Taylor. In third place in a time of 56 minutes and 32 seconds was the team of Peter Moore, Jaimie Campbell, Ben Storey and Matthew Webber.

The women’s challenge was also won in a time of 1 hour 6 minutes and 51 seconds, by the ACM team of Belinda Fuller, Emily Lutyens, Kirsten Goodin and Lesley Mouat. The Social mixed team that won in a time of 1 hour 7 minutes and 19 minutes, was also a team from ACM containing Andi Bond, Donna Burkhart, Rex Dowding, and Terry Blackburn. Of note in this team, Rex Dowding has just turned 73, which just goes to prove that age is no barrier to cycling!

In the girls junior section the racing was very close with the St Matthew’s collegiate team of Annabelle Smith, Scarlet Freeman, and Lucy Stevens were second in a time of 32 minutes and 44 seconds, whilst the fastest team representing Wairarapa College was the Blackburn sister duo of Sydney and Jaimie completing the 16 km race in a time of 32 minutes and 38 seconds.

In the boys junior section the Scot’s College team of Elliot Robertson, George Tompkin, and Harrison Stew won in a time of 24 minutes and 15 seconds. In second place, were the two up team of Caleb Roberts and Toby Braun completing the course in a time of 25 minutes and 14 seconds. In third place in a time of 25 minutes and 58 seconds, was the Wellington College team of Joshua Foote, Sam Mitchell, and James de Hair.

As always, very many thanks to Brent Sowry, Commissaire, and all our marshals for keeping everyone safe on the road today, and also to Di Dowding for providing the replenishment of the energy used on the racing.

2-Up Time Trial

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

Twenty two teams presented themselves to contest tonight’s two-up time trial that was billed as a potential ‘team selection event’ for the (not far distant!) Hope Gibbons Team Time Trial. The 17 km event began at the bottom of Matahiwi with teams leaving at minute intervals, to ride as hard as possible over ‘false flat’ and short rises towards the summit turnaround. On an evening with blustery North West winds, the ride up the hill was never going to be an easy ride.

After the turnaround, teams looked to increase their speed and maximise the benefit of slight downhill, with cross-cutter tail-wind, not that this makes the riding any easier, it just becomes quicker with riders pushing bigger gears. The fastest teams ride close to each other’s wheels and are able to lap out smoothly without losing any speed. Where teams are slightly uneven, the stronger rider may elect to take a longer turn on the front.

All riders arrived at the finish, out of breath most with legs screaming at them to stop pushing. Teams were then rewarded with carrot-cake and marshmallows – instant energy replacement.

Special mention has to be made tonight of Team Sowry – this is the first race this season for Brent, so hopefully, as soon as we get our heads fully around the new timing system, we can see you back in the peloton on a regular basis! Congratulations tonight go to Derek Roberts and Dave Drummond, who posted the fastest overall time. Ben Knight, the only solo rider, finished a mere 4 seconds slower. Devan Simmonds and Lesley Mouat posted the fastest time amongst the mixed teams. The fastest all women team was Karen Blade and Sydney Blackburn. Fastest Junior girls were Scarlett Freeman and Kate Speedy. The sole junior boys team of Finn and Caleb Roberts posted a very creditable time, faster than quite a number of senior teams.

As always, very many thanks to the race management team for their work that allows us to race. Thanks also to the providers of instant energy at the finish line.

Reminder: Entries are now open for the Hope Gibbons Team Time Trial – sort your teams out and get the entries in.

Next Week in the final Tuesday race for the season. It is a mass start over the Kaituna course. If you did not keep your transponder from tonight – or were not issued with one tonight, please attempt to be early so one can be issued to you. All transponders are to be returned at the end of the Kaituna race. Next season each person who races will be able to hire a transponder for the season.

Francis Line, Carters Line, Hughes Line, GRR

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

Thirty-eight riders presented themselves to compete over the circuit that started and finished in Francis Line. Riders were reminded that as this was a Graded Race, they could only race against the riders in their start group, if anyone dropped out of their bunch they were not permitted to work with any group they were caught by. The full length race was over two laps, 28 km in total and the short riders completed a single lap of the course.

Groups left at two minute intervals beginning with the riders allocated into A-Grade. Tonight, due to small numbers, this group was an amalgamation of two riders who are usually A-Grade (scratch) and four riders who usually ride as B-grade (or Break). Three of the B-Graders had an especially ‘hard day at the office’ as they were dropped by the pace set by the Scratch riders over the first rise on East Taratahi Road. At the conclusion of this race, the sprint was taken out by Derek Roberts, with both Eddy Kuipers and Peter James right on his wheel.

B-Grade left at 2 minutes and managed to stay together for the entire race, despite a number of unsuccessful attacks off the front by Andy Curtis-Cody. An impressive sprint split this bunch over the top of the final rise to the finish, and was taken out by Ricky Blade, with Bill van Woerkom close behind.

C-Grade, starting at 4 minutes was a slightly larger group which also managed to stay together for the entire race. In this grade the Robert’s boys appeared to be working as a team, so that as one attacked, the other would sit up and block at the front of the bunch. Approaching the finish Finn Roberts finally managed to break the elastic for an impressive sprint up the final hill to win with clear meters of road behind him. In this bunch Donna Burkhart succeeded in posting the fastest time over the course amongst the women.

D-Grade was another slightly larger bunch at the start, but this bunch dropped a couple of riders on the first circuit. Once again it was an impressive sprint finish from this bunch that was taken out by Greg Baillie with a couple of seconds back to the tandem of Rod Sutherland and Peter Jones. Great to see David Howden back on the start line again after some months away from racing.

Finally E-Grade were the short course riders who completed a single lap of the course. This bunch experienced some significant splits and time gaps as the lap proceeded. Once again Kate Speedy was impressive in her sprint to escape and take line honours from the other tandem ridden by Doug Maclachlan and Meri Murphy.

As always, many thanks to the Race Management team. Next week is a 2-up Time Trial up Matahiwi which could be used as a Hope Gibbons team time trial selection test. Yes, now is the time to test out the legs on the TT bikes – with as much ‘bling’ as you can muster!

Finally, well done to everyone who competed at the ACM hosted interclub race last Sunday. Congratulations to Derek Roberts, the overall winner of the series. Best wishes to those who are taking on the massive challenge that is ‘The Gentle Annie’ this weekend. If you are not going to ‘Gentle Annie’ you might want to sign yourself up for some fun and social games at the Bowling Club next Saturday 23rd March. See you all there!

ACM hosted Interclub Road Race

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

In the final Interclub Road Race for the 2019 season, 26 riders presented themselves to start in almost perfect race conditions. The course took riders out onto the Bideford Road, then into the Whangaehu Valley before they turned and completed the 60 km race at the top of the first hill on Bideford Road.

Martin Grundwell charged away from the start line and his fellow riders in limit. Ten minutes later the 5 riders in Break 2 began their chase up the valley, with Break, entirely made up of Athletics and Cycling Masterton riders began another five minutes later, and Scratch a further ten minutes afterwards. Break caught Break 2 on the climb after the Dreyers Road turn off on the way out and then worked together to catch limit. But it was only after the riders had turned left into Bideford Road did that this group managed to catch Martin, who had spent a long day time trialling. Scratch closed the gap significantly but were unable to catch the now large bunch comprised of Limited, Break 2 and Break.

Many thanks to all those involved with Race Management and for lunch back at the clubrooms after the racing had finished.
