2006 News


22nd October 2006 - Bristol South Hill Climb and Final Results
The traditional season closer on Burrington Comb took place last weekend , result here. There were a few changes in the placings with Swindon RC doing enough to jump up to fourth in the team standings. Christine Colquhoun secured the women's title for the second year running and also secured the third place V5 prize. The only significant change was Gloucester's John Murphy securing second spot in the V6 category.

Final points standings here and a list of category winners here.

2nd October 2006 - Gloucester results & updated points
Following the penultimate event of the 2006 series there are still a number of trophies to be settled in the final round on Burrington Combe. Gloucester result here. Updated points here.

So what's still up for grabs?? Swindon RC, Severn RC and Bristol South are all vying for the final 6th counting team spot but it is Severn RC who have the upper hand having already completed the necessary 18 qualifying rides. The V5 third place is up for grabs with a possible move up into second if the final qualifying ride can be completed. The second and third spots in the V6 category could not be more finely poised with Bernie Brown (Severn RC) and John Murphy (Gloucester City) with 568 points a piece. Bernie currently holds second spot on count back, but by a single point! Gloucester City's Christine Colquhoun needs only to finish the final event to take the spoils.

16th September 2006 - Gillingham and Gloucester results & updated points

18th July 2006 - WTTA event result & updated points
Dursley RC now lead the team competition following round 8, the WTTA Sporting 23. Result here, points here.

12th July 2006 - Correction
Please note that there has been a mix up with dates for the replacement Gloucester event. Unfortunately the event date was incorrectly listed on the CTT website as 3rd September when it will in fact take place on the 10th. This means it is on the same weekend as the Gillingham event. While this is not ideal the WTTA feels that, due to the extent of publicity already undertaken for this replacement event, it remain in the series. Apologies to any riders for whom this causes problems in riding both events.

2nd July 2006 - New event
Following the cancellation of the Weston event the Gloucester City 25 on the 3rd September is to be included in the series as a replacement. The event will be held on the U72 course and details are as per the handbook.

20th March 2006 - Bath Hilly Result
www.echelon-cycles.co.uk rider Gavin Poupart made it two from two wins in the series when he took yesterday's Bath Hilly on a revised and shortened course based at Maiden Bradley. Poupart took the honor of maiden course record holder with the only sub hour ride on the 25 mile course with 59:05. Last week's podium was reversed as home rider Rob Pears took second ahead of David Kiddell (Cavalier CC) with a time of 1:00:49 to Kiddell's 1:01:54. With Poupart not eligible for points it looks as if these two have drawn out the battle lines for the 2006 series. Repeating his fourth place in the Chippenham event Dave Rudland (Dursley RC) posted a time of 1:03:46 to put him ahead of former event winner Rob Lyne (Climb on Bikes RT) and his 1:04:15.

Rob Pears took his second successive V4 win in the 2005 series While Grahame Reed (Gillingham & District) just got the better of the only other V5 rider to complete the course. It was another home victory as Tom Ryan took the V6 prize. A very impressive ride by David Curtis Whitfield of Sodbury Cycle Sport (alas the only junior) saw him take 9th place with a time of 1:06:14. Ann Wooldridge (full time bike rider) took the ladies prize. In a nice change from the norm it was Clevedon & District RC who took prize with their super star V4's Giles Oakley, Pete Wheddon and Mike Simmons combining for a time of 3:18:22. Full and final result here. Updated points to follow.

8th March 2006 - Chippenham Result amendment
Having had the final result confirmed there are a couple of corrections to the result posted at the weekend. Firstly, Giles Oakley put in a ride of 1:00:21 to beat his Clevedon team mate Pete Wheddon into fifth spot. The other corrections were mid table. Final result here. Updated but still very provisional points here. First 'reliable' points tables will be available once the March 31st affiliation deadline has passed.

5th March 2006 - Chippenham Result
After a 45 minute delay due to ice and an accident on the course it was Gavin Poupart of www.echelon-cycles.co.uk who took a convincing win in blustery but bright conditions with a 56:50, putting him over a minute and a half ahead of his nearest challenger. Repeating his second place from 2005 defending series champion David Kiddell (Cavalier CC) showed he has not rested on his laurels over the winter with a 58:21, well over a minute quicker than 12 months ago. In third place was Bath CC's Rob Pears with 59:05 as he continues his impressive start to 2006. Fourth place went to Dursley RC rider Dave Rudland who just crept inside the hour with 59:58. Fifth place went to Pete Wheddon with a 1:01:41 for the Clevedon & District rider.

The stand out result from the morning came from winning lady Caroline Kloiber of the promoting club who's time of 1:04:52 sliced over two minutes off the ladies course record for this revised version of the U83 course. Rob Pears took the V4 honors while Dursley's Dave Farmer took the V5 and Bath's Tom Ryan took the V60+. It was those Dursley boys who yet again took the team prize with Rudland joined by Derek Smetham and Neil Dimon. Full provisional result here. Very provisional points tables here.
