    The winning margin could not have been closer in Round 13 of the SB Sports Injuries Series as Adam Baker ended up ousting the Series leader by one second in Wrekinsport CC's Gordon Davies 19, held over two laps of the Shawbirch – Cotwall Bank circuit. Despite losing 10 seconds to Dean Callister on the second lap Adam Baker clung on for a maiden win in 41 minutes 44 seconds having battled through a sapping northerly headwind that affected the three mile stretch between Shawbirch island an Crudgington crossroads. Baker was pleased with his win, commenting: “It was extremely close for the win, especially over that distance, any number of things where a second is made and lost. It was a tough day with the wind, but I paced it very well, pushing hard into the headwind and then using the tail wind to recover while keeping the speed high. The sections down wind were certainly more enjoyable - happy with my first win at these events”.

    Callister stretched his lead at the top of the Overall standings to 12 points after an extremely close battle with the rider in runner-up spot Henri Bedford. The two were split by 10 seconds at the en of the first lap and by exactly the same margin at the end of the second, with Callister stopping the watch on 41:45. The Nova Raider's comments show the difficulty judging a course that provides a variety of challenges, stating: “A nice temperature for racing but a strong wind in places. I always find that course hard to pace, and missed the win by such a small margin, but a great ride and congratulations to Adam Baker - thanks to Wrekinsport for a top evening”.

    Bedford had had other plans for the evening, looking to enter the re-arranged North Shropshire Wheelers' 25 due unavoidably to take place at the same time, but a late cancellation saw a hasty revision to his plans, making the transfer just in time. Whilst he cemented his Silver medal position Overall he became the first medal winner of the Series taking Junior Gold with four Rounds to spare after a fabulous season. He stated: “I love the Wrekinsport course as I am very familiar with it. A big headwind made the first part of the course tough and challenging. I enjoyed the race a lot, and well done to all those who competed - thanks to Wrekinsport CC for hosting”. With a healthy contingent of five Juniors among the 28-strong field Bedford's nearest challenger was 16 year-old Bridgnorth CC rider Nathan Fullwood in 46:42.   

    Another of the riders caught on the hop by the late cancellation took the win in the SB Women's Series as Marie Llewellyn extended her lead at the top of the standings. Nova Raider Llewellyn crossed the finish line in 50:29 to see off a challenge from Wrekinsport's Clare Cotterill who occupies the Silver medal position after ending her evening on 58:52. Her arrival after the event had started meant she had less than ideal race preparation, as she explained: “The 25 had been the plan for the night, but after the cancellation a very quick drive and entry online for the Wrekinsport 19. The first five kilometres was the warm up as nothing wanted to work, and then I found my power and pace and had an enjoyable race. Many thanks for Wrekinsport for letting us and others join last minute”.

    In the SB Veterans Championship it was a surprise win for Wrekinsport's Chris Halford, still recovering from a knee operation but pushing out Bridgnorth CC's Jonathan Mills-Keeling, another of the late transferees by 8 seconds in +7:53. Halford was 20 seconds behind Mills-Keeling at the end of the first lap but finished strongly, as his comments reveal: “I went easy on the first lap, and pushed a little on the second. I'm surprised to of won the Veteran's race with such strong riders racing”.

    Wrekinsport were running their Gordon Davies Handicap within the event, with Stephen Porter-Knott taking Gold in an adjusted 35:26, with Ian Bond Silver in 39:23 and Ben Wood Bronze in 40:47.

    With many riders’ eyes on a football semi-final entries to Round 11 were perhaps understandably down from normal levels, but that didn’t stop a terrific tussle between Chris Halford and Tomos Hales at the top of the Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport. The pair had been tying at the top of the standings going into the race but were split by just three seconds as Halford took the win in 21 minutes 53 seconds. Halford too over sole lead at the top of the Series despite struggling with a season-long knee injury that was being operated on the following morning, and here he was looking to consolidate his position as much as possible.

    Hales has stepped up to challenge Halford during 2021 and having tied with him the previous evening in a Newport CC promotion was gutted at the finish line to finish three seconds off the pace. He had a 58 second gap to the riders in third spot Phil Roberts, with these three occupying the Top 3 spaces in the Series.

    In the Road Bike Series Junior Luka Stolic continues to put in dominant performances as he tries to make up for lost ground. Stolic only joined the club from Round 7 but has tasted victory four times in four races, with a superb 25:17 effort seeing off Series leader Stuart Wortley by a large margin of 6:24. Wortley however has a 13 point advantage at the head of the standings and will be tough to reel in.

    In the Women’s Series it was a straight head to head between the two women who were occupying the top two spaces, with Clare Cotterill sensing victory in 29:27, 1:23 ahead of Victoria Doran. This sees the pair on equal points at the top of the standings in what is turning out to be a keen competition.

    Glorious conditions saw over a third of the field beat the hour in Round 9 of the SB Sports Injuries Series Wrekinsport CC’s 25 with personal bests the order of the day. With bonus points on offer for the longer distance it was Dean Callister who came out on top with a fabulous effort of 53 minutes 8 seconds on the Crudgington – Shawbirch – Tern Hill - Waters Upton course. The Nova Raider narrowed the gap at the top of the standings to just 12 points as he consolidated his second place in the Championship with just a light north-easterly wind to cope with. Callister was pleased with his effort, stating: “Great conditions and a fast night, I paced it well so was very happy with my time. It was a 25 mile personal best for me - thanks to Wrekinsport for a top evening”.

    Callister wasn’t the only rider to set a personal best as runner-up Adam Baker also beat his previous benchmark with a fine effort of 54:17. Whilst much of the course is flat Baker’s comments show how the Hodnet bypass can catch out the unwary with a long, sapping drag back to Espley island, and how being ‘on the rivet’ of Functional Threshold Power, highest average wattage arider can sustain for one hour is a painful experience: “The race went well with a one minute personal best, although it's only my second 25 mile event. It was a tough course with slow sections of road and a headwind on the way out. 25 mile events are tough! Tying to hold close to FTP for an hour isn't pleasant - still fun nonetheless”.

    Wrekinsport were holding their club 25 mile championship within the event and it was a straight battle between Tomos Hales and Chris Halford, with Hales taking third spot overall in 54:39 and Halford two places back in 55:07. Hales had his sights set on this trophy whilst enjoying the first use of Wrekinsport’s new HQ, Eyton Village Hall: “An excellent hosting from Wrekinsport and a great new HQ, I was pleased with the time on a quick night. I was very happy to take the trophy as I targeted this event at the start of the year - thanks to all the marshals and timekeepers”.

    The rider getting in between Hales and Halford was Bridgnorth CC’s Jonathan Mills-Keeling in an actual time of 54:47, and who also took victory in the Veteran’s Series with a strong +15:09 with Halford runner-up in +12:36. Mills-Keeling is a regular visitor to Wrekinsport 10’s but seemed to enjoy the stretch, commenting: “A nice course, I had a great ride, thanks to Wrekinsport and all involved”.

    The Series leader Henri Bedford had a quiet evening by his standards finishing 6th in 55:35, but stretching his Junior Series lead to a huge 86 points. He explained: “I didn’t quite have the legs for some reason but I tried to limit my losses as best as I could - thanks to Wrekinsport for running the event as smoothly as ever”.

    In the Women’s Series it was a case of coming up with the goods in the face of adversity as nothing seemed to be going right for Series leader Marie Llewellyn – as the Nova Raider scored a massive personal best regardless. Llewellyn stopped the clock on 1:07:07, stretching her Series lead over Wrekinsport’s Clare Cotterill who finished in 1:12:33. Llewellyn explained what went wrong: “Everything was against me for racing! I’d worked three night shifts with no sleep, and my boyfriend was pushing me to race when I just wanted to sleep! I ended up borrowing his shoes as I'd left mine in my horsebox, added to which my Garmin computer dying 10miles in! I thoroughly enjoyed the race, I was racing blind to power and heart rate, but I felt strong and put 100% in. I’m very happy with a new personal best by five minutes -thank you to the organisers once again”!
