Weekend News From MDCC - Jules Takes the Windsor Tri. Simon gets a '50' pb

Jules Fairley came good as he'd promised in the Windsor Tri this morning finishing first in his age group  and 14th overall in the Olympic distance triathlon. His time of 1:00:44 for the cycle split over 42km was a terrific effort, he only lost out to the winner in the run and swim sections.  His time overall of 2:08:56 would have placed him 38th in the Elite field and 6 minutes  in front of our old friend Sharkie Jaggard.

Brilliant effort Jules!

WHAT A PAYNE!   ANDREW IS BACK AND THIS TIME IT'S SERIOUS!

Simon Takes The MDCC '30' mile TT Championships

A warm muggy afternoon yesterday saw only three MDCC riders competing for the Tony Deadman Trophy for the MDCC '30' mile TT Championship.
At the race HQ in Bentley, riders discussed whether to carry water bottles or not, lesser souls  took water bottles, some took two, the elite riders looked as if they were not carrying any. The first 7 miles out towards Alton was into a slight head wind, then after the turn at Chawton roundabout, good use was made of the slight tail wind to speed back  towards Farnham.

West London Combine "25"

Today saw five MDCC riders take on the West London 25 held on the CC114 close to Great Missenden.  The pre race health and safety report had spotted a cow enjoying the fresh grass on the verge of the A413 south of Great Missenden. Armed with this information we all set of to the start.

Thursday '10' Report and other News

On a clear evening with the wind dropping for later riders we had a good turnout of 44 riders for our Thursday evening '10' on the Thicket course. Pete Weir triumphed again with 21:22 which could have been quicker as he had to battle the early blowey conditions as first man off.  He also had some problems  at the National '10' on Sunday which lost him some time, breaking a spoke 2 miles from the finish and then mistaking the finish line and sitting up too early.
