Go-Ride Sessions Start This Saturday at New Venue

Thanet RC Go-Ride sessions are starting again this Saturday 3rd Nov in a new venue.

Saturday 10-11:30am, at the Drapers Mills Primary School in Margate. Suitable for all riders aged 16 and under who can ride a bike without stabilisers. The venue is mostly grass, so cyclo-cross or mountain bikes will be most suitable, although road bikes will also be OK. The venue has toilets and a shelter, but make sure you bring warm clothes (including gloves), and a drink. Helmets must be worn at all times.

This session will be free of charge to all riders on 3rd November, for the first week only! The usual cost will be £2 per child.

Coaching will be a variety of Go-Ride skills suitable for beginners to experienced riders, as well as opportunities for riders to complete some of the British Cycling Talent Development Activities (performances on these are used for selection for British Cycling’s pathway sessions). https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/zuvvi/media/bc_files/gb_team/2018/Talent_Development_Handbook_2018.pdf/

As this is a new season, all riders will need a new parental consent form completing before they can take part in the session. To avoid too much paperwork time at the start of the session, I have attached the new British Cycling Form if you would like to print and complete it beforehand.

Any parents willing to help with sign-on and coordinating the consent forms would be greatly appreciated!

Let me know if you have any questions,

See you on Saturday!

RTTC Championship TT

The final RTTC Championships Time Trial event of the season concludes for the 5th time at Thruxton Motor Racing Circuit for the Closed Circuit Championship. Hosted by Antelope RT. With 280 riders on the start sheet, including 55 juniors, 45 women and very strong field 180 men. This event also uses transponders for timing.

The course is held on the Thruxton Motor Racing Circuit, all riders complete 5 laps of the circuit which totals 11.5 miles of racing. Being a motor racing circuit, it’s closed off from all traffic and is wide sweeping road with only two chicanes which don’t pose much challenge on a bike, and a rise on the end section of the lap which drags during the race.

The weather conditions were cold and misty for the juniors and early starting women but warmed up with the sun coming out for the men. There wasn’t much of a wind which meant no real help around the course.

Thanet Road Club had two members, and two second claim members at this event; Adrian Hawkins and Nic Fennell. Seb Dickson and Chris Fennell second claim.

Finish times in start order:
Seb Dickson: 24:03 – 22nd
Adrian Hawkins: 25:49 – 68th
Nic Fennell: 23:12 – 5th
Chris Fennell: 22:30 – 2nd

The event was won by Pro rider Marcin Bialoblocki with a time of 22:03. 2nd – Chris Fennell – 22:30 – (2nd claim) The Independent Pedaler. 3rd – Gary Chambers – 22:47 – NoPinz

Other local riders include: Emma Lewis (The Independent Pedaler) won the women’s event for the 3rd year in a row with a time of 24:46.
