    With frequent torrential rain and chilly conditions blighting the day just 12 riders took their chances in Round 8 of the Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport, and rode their luck as well as their bikes as the heavens let rip just 10 minutes after the last rider had finished. After four weeks away entering County events Chris Halford returned to his customary position at the top of the standings, clearly showing the extra fitness he has gained in the interim by taking the win by an superb margin of 1 minute 4 seconds.

    Halford stopped the watch on 22 minutes 27 seconds and despite being third rider off was first rider back, looking in great form as he threw himself across the finishing line. This effort beat team mate Tomos Hales into the runner-up spot, although Hales had a top evening, beating both Series leader Rich Smith and Rob Jackson, riders who had pushed him into third spot in Round 7 with an 11 second improvement, whilst making up ground in the race for the Championship on Smith after narrowing the gap to five points. Smith finished 32 seconds down on his Round 7 time in 23:47 for 4th whilst Jackson was a surprising 1:19 down one place lower in 24:49, reflecting the struggle against a rising westerly wind that sprang up after the stillness of the rain showers. 

    Another youngster who has made a name for himself at County-level events Henri Bedford also returned and captured 3rd spot with a fine 23:45. Again, this reflected the tough conditions despite Bedford riding in his usual superbly compact 'Preying Mantis' position which allows him to slice through the air more efficiently.  

    The wet conditions put off competitors in the Road Bike Series with no change from Round 7 as Dave Moore takes a 13 point lead into Round 9.

    It was a case of "Same again please" as the leaders of the Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport and the Road Bike Series again took wins to extend their leads in their respective competitions. Taking his third win in as many weeks Rich Smith is piling on the pressure as he saw off a strong challenge by Rob Jackson to stretch his advantage to six points. Smith bested his Round 6 time by just one second to stop the watch on 23 minutes 15 seconds seeing off Jackson by 15 seconds. Jackson shaved a huge 47 seconds off his Round 6 time thanks to a glorious evening that saw 22 riders in competition.

    Smith's closest challenger in the Series Tomos Hales meanwhile had a quiet evening by his standards, finishing third in 23:42, 15 seconds off his Round 6 pace. These were the only three riders to set 23 minute marks, with Wrekinsport taking the top 4 places as Allan Henderson pushed visiting rider Fraser MacKinnon out by 7 seconds with his 24:24.

    In the Road Bike Series Wrekinsport Chairman Dave Moore continues to pile on the pressure as he made it four wins on the bounce. Moore decided to make things difficult for himself by competing on a mountain bike, but still posted a respectable 28:56 and saw off the challenge of Mio Kontic by 50 seconds in the process.

    Meanwhile the club's youngest rider continues to improve as 15 year-old Henry Fleming knocked a huge 34 seconds off the personal best he set in Round 6 with a fine effort of 31:34. Fleming is beginning to get used to his new time trial bike and more improvements are sure to come.

    The leaders of The Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport and the Wrekinsport Road Bike Series stretched their advantages in Round 6 as both took wins in their respective categories. Rich Smith shaved two seconds off his Round 5 time despite miserable conditions that saw riders battle against a strong wind on Cotwall Bank, the toughest part of the course and rain that sprung up mid-event to ensure competitors received a liberal soaking.

    Smith saw off the attentions of Tomos Hales for the second week in a row with his 23:16 effort - though by a smaller margin as Hales narrowed the gap to just 11 seconds after finishing 19 seconds off the pace in Round 5. Smith now holds a four point advantage over Hales in the Championship, with Allan Henderson lying in third place Overall thanks to a tie on the night with Rob Jackson for third, with both riders finishing in 24:17.

    In the Road Bike Series Wrekinsport Chairman Dave Moore opened up a seven point advantage over Andy Loveland with a 25:56 ride, five seconds faster than in Round 5, with Bethan Till finishing in runner-up spot on 29:17.

    The youngest Wrekinsport club member took on the oldest still competing regularly - and finished with a personal best as 15 year-old Henry Fleming beat 80 year-old Ron Perks by six seconds. Fleming has been frustrated in trying his new time trial bike out after a hand injury, but with that finally healed he stopped the watch on 32:08, slicing a huge 1:16 off his previous best.

    Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport - Round 5 2019

    Warm conditions brought a 22 rider field out for Round 5 of the Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport as Rich Smith took a solid win and stretched his lead at the top of the Series standings. World, European and British Transplant Games Champion Smith put the extra fitness gained racing on rolling territory in the Shropshire and South Staffordshire Cycle Road Race League to good advantage on the lumpy Long Lane circuit to beat Round 4 winner Tomos Hales by 19 seconds - as Wrekinsport riders took the Top 4 places on their home circuit. Smith stopped the watch on 23 minutes 18 seconds for his second win of the Series in 2019.

    Hales was a comfortable runner-up and took over sole occupancy of second place in the Series thanks to his 23:37 ride, a place he shared after Round 4 with Allan Henderson, who took third place on the night in 24:21.

    There was also a deciding split in the Road Bike Series, designed with the purer original version of the sport before the adoption of aero equipment, with a triple tie for first after Round 4 resolved as Wrekinsport Chairman Dave Moore took over at the head of the table on his own thanks to a 26:01 effort, beating Andy Loveland into runner-up spot on 27:27.

    Round 4 of the newly re-badged Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport saw a first-time win for Tomos Hales - as road works saw a course change to the fast 'Tiddly' circuit. Riders got a sneak preview of racing on the beautiful new tarmac at Peplow whilst the normal Cotwall Bank circuit got a liberal dose of chippings as riders took advantage of a glorious evening with hardly a breath of wind, ensuring fast times.

    Hales came out at the top of the standings with an excellent effort of 23 minutes 23 seconds to push out Wrekinsport team mate Allan Henderson by 18 seconds. Those performances were enough to elevate the pair into joint second spot in the Series standings as they narrowed the gap to an absent Rich Smith to just two points.

    Taking third spot - but only just was Richard Howes, putting in a first appearance of the season with a strong 26:06, just one second ahead of Mark Golding, the best-placed guest rider.

    Club Chairman Dave Moore threw his hat in the ring in the Road Bike Series, finishing 6th overall in 25:56 and instantly going into the joint lead of an event designed for riders not using aero equipment. Meanwhile Jen Morris was the only woman in competition and immediately loved the course on first sight, ending the evening on 32:30.

    Wrekinsport CC are delighted to announce a new supporter coming on board for the club's Evening 10 Series. Decathlon UK's Telford branch, based on The Forge Retail Park will headline the newly renamed "Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport" in a tie-in that will see prize vouchers provided to event helpers at the club's annual presentation.

    In what is hoped to be a mutually beneficial relationship the shop will also provide mechanical help at the club's upcoming LBL charity ride to Baschurch on 9th June from Wellington Leisure Centre in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity.

    Wrekinsport club Chairman Dave Moore commented: "We are delighted to welcome a major player like Decathlon on board and look forward to a close future working relationship with the store and it's staff, with a couple already in the process of joining the club".
