    Tomos Hales continued his strong defence of the Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport Championship with another fine win on a cool, dull evening for Round 7. Hales coped best with a five minute sprinkling of drizzle which reports stated was enough to make the road surface greasy and care had to be taken on corners. Starting a minute after Oli Freeman Hales had taken 7 seconds back at the 2½ mile point, 24 seconds at the 6¼ mile mark, but put in a giant effort on the final lap to catch Freeman as they crossed the finish line virtually together, with Hales recording 21 minutes 47 seconds, Freeman 22:47. This extended Hales’ Series defence by a further point to five points.

    Hayley Wells continues to impress and took third place Overall from a field of 15 riders, as well as capturing the Women’s win in 24:12, 10 seconds ahead of Junior Ben Southgate. Wells has a commanding lead of 21 points and looks a shoo-in for the Women’s title already in her first season with Wrekinsport, with nearest challenger Victoria Doran finishing in 31:56.

    In the Road Bike Series first-time visitor Jack Ward of Sharrow CC took the win in 25:29; but David Seager extended his lead over Matt Price with a fine 26:31 and was actually seven seconds up on Ward after 2½ miles in a frantic start he paid for, being 29 seconds behind Ward after 6¼ miles and 1:02 behind at the finish.

    The sun finally shone on the Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport as a glorious evening greeted riders for Round 5. With virtually no wind to speak of and warm conditions times were fast, with a tight battle at the head of the standings with the top three split by just 12 seconds. Second and third riders Mark Pritchard and Oli Freeman had come across the finish line the first time on the Long Lane circuit both a second ahead of winner Tomos Hales, but Hales wound things up with a negative split tactic to be clearly ahead after 6¼ miles to be 6 seconds ahead of Pritchard and 16 ahead of Freeman. Freeman managed to pull 4 seconds back on the final circuit however, finishing strong. Hales’ effort of 22 minutes 26 seconds was 29 seconds off his best from Round 3, but enough to extend his Series lead over Freeman.

    In the Women’s Series Hayley Wells made it another six point tally for the maximum possible 30 points from 5 rounds, and now holds a commanding 20 point lead. She finished a strong 5th overall in 23:27 and put in a searing last lap as she tried to stay away from minute man Hales, with Hales just overtaking at the final turn. Wells’ turn of speed reversed a four second advantage to Rich Smith at the 6¼ mile point and took a further 20 seconds out of him, clearly showing the competitiveness to not let Hales get away easily.

    In the Road Bike Series Peter Jukes took a fine win in 25:36, two seconds ahead of a personal best for Newport Junior Ben Bramford-Hale and 12 seconds ahead of Davis Seager, who moved into the sole lead at the head of the standings.

    • Round 6 was cancelled for safety reasons with conditions that could hardly have been more different as all-day persistent rain left standing water, a greasy surface and poor visibility. The club committee will discuss potential for rescheduling.

    All day rain, standing water, greasy road, low light. Discussion at next committee meeting if possible to re-run.

    Round 4 of the SB Sports Injuries would undoubtedly have been cancelled had conditions turned just 25 minutes earlier as riders and officials endured some of the worst racing conditions in living memory in the Wrekinsport CC Hanna Phipps-Jones 21. Starting in sunshine and held over two laps of The Tiddly triangle, event winner and first off Dean Callister crossed the finish line for the first time on exactly 21 minutes – precisely when the deluge commenced. With all riders out on the course the sky turned black, the rain bounced off the road for the rest of the event – and the added and totally unexpected hazard of tractors repeatedly using the lane with over 30 trips in both directions in the near dark, as well as a steady stream of motorbikes, which made for a challenging evening everyone was pleased to see the back of.

    Callister took the first points away from reigning champion and 2024 Series leader Tomos Hales in his first appearance in the Series with a course record breaking effort of 43 minutes 49 seconds, undoubtedly helped by the heavy rain, one of two types of condition conducive to personal bests and fast times generally thanks to relatively easy passage through the air and plentiful oxygen. The Aerologic rider was delighted when a trawl back through several years of records confirmed he had sliced a huge 29 seconds off the previous benchmark, stating: “My first course record - very pleased with that, and in not great conditions on second lap. I was hoping for no rain, but it really started coming down the last lap. I couldn’t see much due to rain. There was a big headwind up to Peplow which was tough, but managed to pace it well - thanks to Wrekinsport for hosting the event”.

    Hales took the runner-up spot in 45:24, pushing out Callister’s Aerologic team mate Mark Pritchard by 1:40 in 45:24, extending his Series lead to 12 points over Jonathan Mills-Keeling. Starting nine minutes after Callister, Hales got caught up in the hullabaloo of traffic on a normally quiet lane and graphically described conditions: “The first two side of the Tiddly circuit went well before the rain start to fall and it became very dark. It was a tough section up the A442 into the headwind and I had to battle the farming traffic. So much appreciation to the marshals that had to endure in those conditions! Thanks for Wrekinsport for hosting, and well done to Dean for the win”.

    Mills-Keeling finished a strong fourth overall and took the Veterans win for his fourth straight SB round in a row in +9:02, 25 seconds ahead of Chris Riley, making his first appearance of 2024 in the Series. Mills-Keeling opened up a dominant lead of 38 points at the head of the SB Veterans Series thanks to this effort, and thankfully the traffic hold-up didn’t affect his winning position: “Fun after I finished, halfway around the first lap started to rain and got progressively worse. I was held up in traffic, and was pleased to see the finish - a great ride by Dean for the Course Record”.

    With only one female in competition Hayley Wells was guaranteed another maximum 20 points for finishing, also making it a straight 4/4 wins. Terribly baulked as she simply rolled through at the end of the first lap unable to pass tractors that had held her up considerably, it was more about getting around on the evening, which she did in 52:19 – a time significantly traffic-affected. She explained: “A race of two parts! Starting off in dry conditions and ending in a downpour with plenty of standing water added to the challenge, not to mention the train of tractors, cars and motorbikes causing a hold up for almost four kilometres along the back stretch of the first lap. Sadly traffic wasn’t on my side on this occasion, but I was just happy to get around considering the abysmal weather conditions - many thanks to Wrekinsport for sitting out in the pouring rain”!

    Junior winner Ben Southgate was one place and eight seconds back from Wells in 52:27, and his brief comment summed up the evening: “Some of the worst conditions ever, but glad to have finished it”!

    There’s a famous expression regarding the cat being away and that certainly applied in Round 4 of the Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport as Oli Freeman took full advantage of a number of absences to take his first win. With Series leader Tomos Hales at a joint training/stag week in Majorca, Freeman took a great win on a warm evening accompanied by a light breeze to charge around the Long Lane circuit in 22 minutes 57 seconds, moving up to second place in the Series standings in the process.

    Freeman’s win was 56 seconds from Hayley Wells, massively impressing with a strong 23:53 to push out Ben Wood by 37 seconds – and over 10 minutes ahead of the next female Sarah Bradshaw who is in only her second race for the club. Wells has a dominant lead in the Women’s Series of 14 points which will be hard to challenge even at this early stage.

    The Road Bike Series was hotly contested with first-timer Peter Jukes heading up a creditable 50% of the event entries choosing to ride traditional bikes, with his 26:28 pushing out club chairman Dave Moore by 24 seconds. Mooremoved into joint lead of the Series level with David Seager who was fourth in this category on 27:06 despite improving his Round 3 time by 35 seconds, showing the keenness of competition.

    The only Junior riding was Newport’s Ben Bramford-Hale, who registered another fine personal best of 27:14, lowering his benchmark from Round 3 by 59 seconds.

    Another week, but the same winner in Round 3 of the Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport as Tomos Hales took the plaudits again on the tight and technical Long Lane circuit. Hales stopped the watch on 22 minutes 18 seconds, 21 seconds down on his Round 2 time despite a relatively still evening. Hales opened up his Series lead to four points over Phil Roberts, who finished third on the day in 23:23, with Aerologic rider Jonathan Mills-Keeling taking the runner-up spot in 22:56.

    Roberts had a late charge thanks to a negative split strategy after being 11 seconds down on new Wrekinsport member Oli Freeman at the 2½ mile point, a single second down after 6¼ miles, but nine seconds ahead by the finish.

    Hayley Wells continues to improve, knocking 35 seconds off her Round 2 effort to tie for 6th spot overall with Wrekinsport Junior Ben Southgate on 24:24. Southgate’s competition was in the shape of Newport 13 year old Ben Bradford-Hale with a personal best 28:13, whilst Wells’ came from Victoria Doran in 32:52.

    In the Road Bike category David Seager headed into the sole lead of that Series with a close win over Matt Price of seven seconds after Seager ended his evening on 27:41 at the head of an encouraging seven riders participating in this back-to-basics format.
