West London Combine "25"

On Sunday the 5th September, three members of MDCC took part in the WLC 25 held at Great Miissenden. These Combine events are only open to follow club members and are therefore relaxed and quite informal. As this event was open to both Solo riders and 2-Ups, myself and Mike Woods thought that they would give the 2-Up ago.

MDCC Medium Gear Championships. Thursday 2nd September.

 MDCC 10 mile TT Medium Gear Championships Thursday, 2nd September, 6.30 pm start. 

On a lovely September evening with almost a full field of riders Andrew Payne won the MDCC medium gear championhips with a time of 25:37. This was despite chest problems which left him coughing well after the event. Sam Hilton took second place finishing in 26:25 and Jorj James was third in 27:12 despite an impact puncture sustained hitting a pothole on Howe Lane. These 3 all win medals with Andrew taking the Tony Deadman Medium Gear Shield for the year.

MDCC Open Hilly TT

The weather was kind for our final open event of the year yesterday, the 30 mile  Hilly TT, based in the lovely little village of Frieth and covering an idyllic course set in the  scenic wooded Chilterns and the Thames Valley.

Simon Greenland Shatters the Club's 12 Hour Record

Simon Greenland riding yesterday the ECCA 12 hour event in the Newmarket area broke one of the Club's oldest records, the 1953 12 hour record held by Den Hutton. Simon covered  253.91 miles to break the old record by over 9 miles. He also finished 6th in the event. Fantastic ride Simon!

 We hope to have more on this story direct from Simon later. We also hope to get a response from Den Hutton, now retired but still riding, from his home in New Zealand.

MDCC Open '10' Marlow / Bridlington CC '10'

Our open event this morning at least avoided the rain but a north easterly wind blowing the riders to the turn at the Thicket proved less helpful on the return journey. Overall it seemed to produce slower times today than on our usual course on the A4. Danuta Tinn [pb Science] was the only lady taking part and was a little disappointed with her time but at least she had the satisfaction of taking the Ladies prize.  Fastest man was Justyn Cannon [ Royal Air Force CC ] but who said his time was over a minute and a half outside his personal best. 

Simon Greenland and the 12 hour Record - Help Needed!

Simon Greenland was on course to break the Clubs 12 hour record set by Den Hutton in 1953 in  last week's Breckland 12 hour when the race was abandoned after an accident to a rider which meant the  road was closed. He had covered 180 miles in 8 hours leaving him 4 hours to complete another 64 miles to break the record.  Simon would like to have another go at the the record as well as qualifying for the National BBAR Competition by taking part in the ECCA 12 hour in the Newmarket area on 22nd August.
