Cyclo Cross result w/e 23/11/2014

Despite the muddy conditions not suited to his style of riding Steve Vanes of Wyre Forest CRC had his best result this season in last weekend's West Midlands Cyclo Cross League.  Organised by Malvern CC the predominantly flat grass land course at Holt Heath had been badly cut up by previous races by the time the Senior event started.  The mud and a few short climbs including wooden steps towards the end of each lap soon sapped the strength of many of the 110 competitors who eventually finished.  Steve made a good start and was well placed in the top ten when he was brought down at half distance by a falling rider.  However he was soon back in the saddle and spurred on by several club mates who were giving vocal support he worked his way back through the field to finish 8th overall and 7th in the Senior category.  Steve's next event will be on December 6th at the Mallory Park race circuit.

Cyclo Cross results w/e 16/11/2014

Steve Vanes continued to impress in the West Midlands Cyclo Cross League with a top 10 finish in the latest round promoted by Birmingham/Midland CC.  Run over undulating grass land at Blackwell Court near Bromsgrove Steve made his usual conservative start, but worked his way up to 6th place after the first few laps, a position he held going into the final circuit.  However a group of three riders were working together and gradually closed the gap with Steve losing out in the final sprint for the line eventually finishing 9th overall and 8th Senior from a total of 127 finishers.  Steve was satisfied with his performance which he thought was better than his last few races and hopes to maintain his form for the remaining three league races.  His next race will be at Top Barn Farm between Holt Heath and Worcester next Sunday when his race is due to start at 2-15pm.  Steve will appreciate support at what is a "local" venue so any members of WFCRC with a few hours to spare next Sunday can spend the afternoon enjoying cyclo cross racing (if the weather is fine): you may like it and want to give it a go next year.      

Cyclo Cross results w/e 02/11/2014

As the cyclo cross season approaches the halfway point the unseasonably fine weather is attracting bigger fields and more experienced riders as Steve Vanes of Wyre Forest CRC found out at the previous round of the West Midlands Cyclo Cross League.  Promoted by Welland Valley CC and run over the Misterton Hall circuit near Lutterworth Steve worked his way towards the leading group after the usual fast start which is common to cyclo cross races.  After almost an hour of racing he eventually crossed the line in an excellent 19th place overall and 13th in his category from a field of 155 seniors, under 23s and under 40s veterans. Steve followed up this success with another fine ride at the weekend in the Wolverhampton Wheelers CC promoted event at the Aldersley Leisure Village.  After another fast start Steve found himself chasing a leading group eventually finishing 17th overall from 132 finishers and 10th in the Senior men's category,

Clubman of the year

This year's AGM takes place at the Stourport Sports Club on Tuesday 11th November.  Besides the usual discussions on club matters and the election of officers for the following year this will be an ideal opportunity for all members to vote for their Clubman of the year.  Although all other awards have been decided this one is still up for grabs so if you think someone in the club is deserving of this award come along to the AGM and cast your vote.  Although the award is for a Clubman it could also be given to a woman and it is not restricted to competing members: any member of WFCRC whether an active competitor, a leisure rider or someone who assists behind the scenes can win this award so come along and cast your vote. 
Paul Darby has arranged for a free buffet on the night and David Briggs will be in attendance with club clothing for those of you who are still requiring some kit.  Additionally anyone renewing their 2015 membership on the night can do so at 2014 prices.
