Team Time Trial Results

posted in: Cycling, Results, Time Trial | 1

The kapiti cycle club had the honour of taking home the Hope Gibbins Shield for 2015 with there A team of Antony Nalder Neil Harwood,Mike Proudfoot,Adam Johnston  completing the 40km coarse in a time of 55:41 followed by two of our local teams .

But they didn’t get it all there way as the local team of Emily Karen, Kirsten and Lesley taking out the president cup for the female class.

 A great effort by Scots College for putting up 6 teams in the school category with there A team putting up a time of 28:35 over the 15km distance .

It was a stunning day with conditions perfect for a tt with split times for the half way probably very similar compared to other club events where splits differ as much as 10 to 15 minutes .It was a great turn out of both riders and supporters with 111 riders over 28 teams taking part . The team time trial format allows riders of any ability to team up with friends of similar strength and take on the challenge together and get to share the fun .  So thank you everyone that helped or took part and hope to see you all next time.

If anyone has Photos from the TTT  and would like them to be posted send them through to  I would be happy to add it.

2015 Final Race

posted in: Cycling, Results | 0

Athletics & Cycling Masterton 

Hello cycle club riders

The curtain came down on Tuesday evening on the cycle club’s summer programme. And, like so many other evenings the weather smiled on all concerned with mild and calm conditions, perfect for the race.

The event was a mass start road race over one lap of the Millars Road circuit starting and finishing by the Gladstone Church. The race was followed by a large turnout of members at the Gladstone pub where the usual bragging took place, reinforcing how special the club is in both racing and socializing (and bragging).

The results are attached. They again emphasize how close the racing was throughout the entire field with almost all riders finishing in bunches. Fastest time and first across the line was recorded by Phil Sutherland in 46.35 followed by Devan Simmonds, Steve Brown and Mike Wilkinson in 46.36. This compares with the same race one year ago and won by Mark Langlands in 42.39. Lesley Mouat confirmed her form by finishing as first woman in 46.39, beating Emily Luytens and Louise McCormack for second and third.

Well done all who competed throughout the summer season, for those who managed the racing, marshaled or timed. It has been excellent endeavour.

A different kind of race

posted in: Cycling, Results | 0


It was meant to be a handicap road race for the usual big numbers of cyclists who turn up each Tuesday evening. But, with a sizable chunk of club members attending the funeral of Jesse Bucknell, the field was reduced to a mere 18 riders. A quick rethink was called for and before you knew it the entire field set off on a neutralised lap of the Francis Line circuit. The race, changed to a mass start over one lap, started at the completion of that first lap. And, unlike earlier reports which waxed eloquent on the endless summer weather, it is necessary to say it was a chilly affair with a stiff and cold south easterly blowing over the exposed course. Brrrr.

So, the field cruised along with plenty of conversation and a bit of rotation until the start/finish line appeared. In an instant the whole scenario altered to a no-holds-barred scramble for position as the field bore down on the Francis Line/Bristol Road intersection. The wind was favourable on the leg down to East Taratahi and the pace, unlike the weather, was hot. Soon competitors split up and became like a graded race, in groups of two, three, four or six riders. The results tell the story with Jack Sowry taking the honours in 22.24, 18 seconds ahead of Dave Drummond with another three seconds back to Craig Mangin. Some quite notable riders were left in their wake. Emily Luytens was first woman. Two riders did not finish.

A handful of marshals kept time and kept the road safe for both drivers and cyclists. Thanks guys and gals. The results are in time order.

There is a change of location to the programme for next week: Tuesday February 24, we now compete in a 24km MSRR over two laps of the Carrington circuit with a 6.00pm start. No late registrations. And, on Saturday February 21 it’s the club road race champs from the Gladstone intersection for two laps of the Millars Road circuit. Be ready for a 2.00pm start.

Close racing on Upper Plain

posted in: Cycling, Results | 0


February 10th was another excellent evening of racing undertaken in fine conditions. And, after all the hills in recent rides, this was a breeze for most competitors. There was a breeze too but it wasn’t an issue with its impact affecting different parts of the course differently.

This was another graded road race over three laps of the Upper Plain circuit commencing and finishing in Upper Manaia Road, a total of 36km. It’s fast, almost entirely flat and provides competitors with stimulating riding. The field was made up of 45 riders including one tandem plus five riders who raced a shorter course over 20km. Six groups got underway – at 6.00pm then at minute intervals.

Phil Sutherland took line honours in 52.38, a time shared with Dave Drummond who came second. The four A grade riders finished together with Mike Wilkinson and Jack Sowry a second back. All grades except C stayed together with furious racing up to and over the chalk finish line. B grade was won by Derek Cox in 53.09, C grade by Chris Smith in 55.45, D grade by Greg Baillie in 58.04, E grade, for the second week in a row by Emily Luytens, in 59.21 with Viv Bunny taking out F grade in 1.00.11. The short course was won by Jess Matthews in 46.12. In most grades a mere second or two covered the riders, the exception being C where the field was split into two components. Lesley Mouat was first woman in 53.10, Donna Burkhart second woman with Emily third. A couple of DNFs completed the field.

As in most weeks a good group of marshals kept time and kept the road safe for both drivers and cyclists. Thanks guys and gals.

The results are in two parts – the first in grade-finishing order; the second in fastest elapsed time order.

Next week: Tuesday February 17, we compete in a 27km HRR over two laps of the Francis Line/Hughes Line circuit with a 6.00pm start. No late registrations. And, on Saturday February 14th it’s the club ITT champs from Makoura College. Be ready for a 2.00pm start.

3 February – Y Loop Results – Impressive pair strut their stuff

posted in: Cycling, Results | 0

Forty seven riders presented themselves to the starter on Tuesday evening for the Athletics & Cycling club handicap road race. The 40km course had competitors commencing at Wainuioru school, heading east to the end of the seal toward Stronvar, turning and heading south to the end of the seal on Motukai Rd before returning to finish at the school. It is spectacular and remote country, complete with serious undulations, narrow bridges, a deep gorge and a setting sun.

Seven groups were sent off at zero, four, nine, 11, 14, 18 and 19 minutes, the largest groupings covering 11 riders, others with five and Scratch with just two. And, those two Scratch guys, Mark Langlands and Jack Sowry, lapped the entire field to win in 57.09 with Jack a second in arrears. Not only, they also put nearly two minutes on the next rider to cross the line and were over five minutes up on the next A grade rider. It was a remarkable race for the pair, even if the handicapping assisted. Not one group managed to finish together.

There were some excellent individual efforts throughout the field. Three riders threw in the towel and recorded DNF against their names. Others had the ignominy of being overtaken with the line in sight, often by several riders, pushing them down the finish pecking order. Such is handicap road racing.

So, it was excellent racing in warm conditions on yet another beautiful evening, witnessed by an impressive moonrise. Will this summer ever end?

Thanks to the marshalls and time-keepers and the road signage people. Apologies for the delay in providing these results.

The attached results have three components – the first listing shute order; the second highlighting the complete field in time order, the third in group order.

Next Tuesday, March 10th, is a graded road race over three laps of the Upper Plain circuit from Upper Manaia Rd, over 34km. See you all then for a 6.00pm start.
