This segment proved to be a right royal battle ground during the last month and a lot of meteorological excitement was generated by Storm Doris.  Fantastic work by Olly who reclaimed his top spot with a late attempt and Keith Henderson who leaped from last place to 2nd.  The podium was rounded out by The Mower.  All 3 made the overall Top 10 and are awarded a 10s time bonus.  Olly gets to keep his own prize in stock.

Rachel Jones takes the stage in the women’s competition with a very strong time with Wendy Jupp and Pip Jenkins sharing the second step of the podium.  Rachel wins a pair of Svelte arm warmers.

We had 29 riders contest the segment in February.  In the Women’s comp, Catherine Tarry takes the honours with a strong 5:25, just 1s ahead of Pip Jenkins with Anna Holland rounding out the podium places. Catherine picks up the Svelte jersey.

In the men’s comp, Daniel Veness had a storming ride to take the stage with a 4:18, pipping Keith Henderson and Rory Barrett (who weighed in with a late charge cruelly kicking The Mower off the 3rd step of the podium).  Daniel also crashed having a go at Segment 1 through no fault of his own.  He is OK but it serves as a reminded to be safe out there. Daniel wins a mixed case of 24 Beavertown beer cans.

Prize winners should report to the Velo House and ask for Olly.

No time bonuses were awarded in Feb.

The GC includes relevant time bonuses.

Big congratulations to the 23 riders who have completed both segments. You have made the first selection. Only 10 more rounds to go…

Heading the field in the men’s competition is Keith Henderson who can mix it on the hills and the flat.

Pip Jenkins is leading the way in the Women’s field which has already been whittled down to the podium places.

If you are out of contention for the GC, worry not as there will be lots to play for in the monthly segments and we will also be introducing a monthly handicap competition.

March Segment – The Spring Classic

March brings us the Spring Classics in the pro peloton.  Our version of the classic gives us an opportunity to test our legs in a longer effort on the Powdermills Loop.  This is a pretty flat 6.7km loop with a fairly average road surface in places.  It will afford you the chance to work on your 10-15 minute power which is not a bad thing to be focussing on at this time of year (in my opinion).

We have a few Unhinged riders already in the Top 10. Resident classics specialist, Olly, is at number 2 with a very strong 10:35, Justin has a 10:40 to his name and in joint 9th we have MK1, CP1 and KH1 who knocked out a 10:50 in a chain gang. Yes – it is a great course to have a crack at with a few ride buddies and this is actively encouraged for this segment as it is a very good loop for working on your race pace riding in a group.

Safety advice:  As mentioned, the surface is sketchy therefore keep your head up and, if you are riding in a group, make sure that you are communicating.

Now, for those hill lovers amongst you, worry not – the competition will get hillier (wait until you see what we have in mind for July!)

 

Introducing the Handicap Competition

We will also be introducing a year long handicap section for the league. Taking the combined times for first 2 segments, everyone then gets a % of the fastest time which is their handicap %. The person with the best adjusted handicap times each month wins a prize. This should give everyone something to aim for alongside the overall GC.  Clear as the mud adorning your bike after a cross race? Don’t worry.. all will be detailed with next months results..

For those that have not managed to complete both segments but want to take part in the handicap comp, we will take your PB for the missing segment to calculate your handicap %. If you have never tackled the segment then we will take a time from the coming weekend as long as you do a pinky swear that you gave it full beans!

We will publish the handicap % in due course.

 

Prizes

First up to whet your appetite is a photo of the overall GC Trophy which is now proudly adorning my office wall.

For March, Olly has kindly donated the following:

A crate of Bruges Zot for the handicap winner.

£30 cafe vouchers for first male and female in the GC. I think he means each so I don’t think that you have to use them together which might be weird  😉

Good luck everyone..

    Damn – I didn’t know about the GC/handicap thing so didn’t go and do the Trainsharp segment. Glad you’ll include PBs in the latter.

    Great stuff!

      Hey Chris,

      Thanks for the comment. We only came up with the idea a couple of days ago so will make sure all who have had a go so far will get a handicap %. (Particularly when there is beer at stake).

      Cheers..

      Rob

      Sincere apologies. All efforts should be rewarded with a score on the blog! 24 cans on your way… (when you win this months handicap)

      😉
