    Wrekinsport CC Chris Edwards Hilly 18

    A rearranged event on a rearranged course saw two fantastic inaugural records set in Round 2 of the Friction Hydraulics Series - with 17 year-old Ben Healy showing tremendous promise. With heavy snow cancelling the original date of 3rd March for Wrekinsport CC's Chris Edwards Hilly 18 and long-term traffic lights controlling Stableford bridge a revised 17.4 version of the traditional course starting and finishing on the 'Rabbit Run' was brought into play, with Healy taking an audacious overall win in 36 minutes 48 seconds.

    Riding for Zappi RT, the young rider was visibly quicker on the tough climb of The Hermitage than any other entrant, putting his light weight to good use. Healy was delighted with his win, commenting: "It was great to be able to do the rearranged race. Setting such a good time looks good for some UK and European races with time trial stages I've got in April. Let's hope I can make it back next year".

    Matt Gibbons set out his stall out for the season early, heading to the top of the Friction Series standings thanks to registering the best effort from a County rider. Nova Raider Gibbons posted an impressive time of 41:32 to beat Ludlow Breweries' Jack Wilson by 50 seconds. Gibbons was pleased with his effort after a low key entry to the Series six days earlier, stating: "I was really pleased to have put in a good ride after last week where I wasn’t feeling great. A lot of people couldn’t make it, but I concentrated on the clock and was much improved on last year. Thanks to all the marshals and supporters on course".

    Wilson meanwhile hadn't turned a pedal in race mode after returning from a training week in Majorca. One of nine new riders who were able to make the rearranged date, Wilson made an immediate impact, not only taking the runner-up spot but also leading The Brewers to the team win with support from Gary Walters and Chris Davies for a combined time of 2:12:11 - and knew just what was responsible: "Majorca gains! My first time trial of the season, I only sat on my TT bike for the first time five days before the race so I was happy with my form. Surprised with the team win"!

    Ludlow Breweries weren't finished there with Walters taking third County spot in 43:35 as well as victory in the Veteran's Series with a +4:27, 1:33 ahead of Ludlow CC's William Baugh who nevertheless moved to the top of the Veteran's Series thanks to that runner-up place. Walters also attributed his success to the club's Majorca training week - but for different reasons to Wilson: "I've just been on The Brewer's Race Team training week - it seems like the late night re-hydration sessions paid off"!

    Emma Serjeant took the honours in the Women's Series, setting an excellent Course Record of 47:32 - and moving into the joint lead of the Women's Series with Hafren CC team mate Rebecca Richardson. Serjeant pushed Debbie Hutson-Lumb into the runner-up spot, with the Nova Raider posting a very creditable 51:39. Serjeant commented: "It was definitely a challenging course but I felt strong. I'm really pleased with my effort, and it was nice to see where I’m at early season. Thank you to all the organisers and marshals".

    Wrekinsport's Adam Mumford took the club's Chris Edwards Trophy in 45:03.

    Wrekinsport Cycling Club in Telford  kick off their club time trial programme on Wednesday, 4th April 2018 with the first of two 5 mile 'Sprint 5' events. Taking place on the A442 between Crudgington and Shawbirch, Telford, these are a good way to blast off the cobwebs for experienced time triallists whilst being an excellent distance for beginners. HQ is The Woolpack, Shawbirch in Telford with both starting at 6:30pm. You don't need a dedicated time trial bike, any bike will do.

    It is with great regret that this afternoon's scheduled Wrekinsport CC Chris Edwards Hilly 18 time trial is cancelled. Up until late yesterday evening the course and lanes around HQ were in a reasonable condition, but additional snow during the evening has put paid to that and caused safety concerns. The bike club which is based in wellington, Telford will discuss whether to apply for a revised date at their next meeting.

    Mick Jeggo

    Mick was a prominent racing member of the club in the late 1950’s (along with Roy Clements and Graham Bufton). The team being regular winners of most of the events that they entered, indeed the discussion in the changing rooms before the start often involved asking who of the other riders was going to win the sprint for 4th place they were so dominant. Two of those three riders became National Junior RR champions in 1957 and 58, alas It was the other two who were the victorious riders but Mick no doubt played his part in the team tactics to ensure that the team mate could take the honours.

    As a family came along so racing had to take a back seat but he continued to support and help the club through a particularly difficult time in it’s history when during the middle part of the 1960s it looked at one point that it would fold due to lack of numbers. He was also busy during this time in setting up his car sales business, Davies and Jeggo Motors. One of Mick’s dreams was to put on a prestigious cycling race and in 1970 that came about with his business promoting an event for Professional riders on a circuit around Newport and Edgmond. This was to become an annual event and eventually the best race on the Pro calendar, it came as no surprise that he was asked to promote it as the National Championship. This was such a success that it was also the Championship for the following two years as well. By then the race had grown in status that it had moved to a circuit that had the finish line in Newport High Street.

    The club slowly improved in numbers and had gained a healthy number of young riders by the mid 1970’s and this included his son Nick, so Mick got back to riding a few events once more to support him. During this time the club became a sponsored club for the first time, Mick being instrumental in gaining Van Beek Motor Spares as the sponsor that ran for three years. Another benefit to the club was that the winner of the now annual Davies & Jeggo race was invited to be the guest speaker at the clubs presentation night and some of the top racing names of the time such as Phil Bayton, Paul Carbutt, and Keith Lambert handed out the prizes to the winning club riders.

    Having held the National Championship for three years running it was going to be difficult to top that using the same format so the event was evolved into the Newport Nocturne, a fast moving criterium facing through Newport High Street and also the cobbled St Mary’s Street under street lighting. This drew massive crowds into the town and people came from many miles away to enjoy the evening. Also at this time Mick was invited to become President of the club, a role that he was extremely proud to hold and a fitting testament to his help over many years.

    The club and the cycling world in general will be a sadder place for his passing and the club offers its deepest sympathy to his wife Maureen and to , Di and Holly at this time.

    Wrekinsport CC are putting on some fully coached group riding coaching sessions at Shrewsbury Sports Village. These bike sessions will take place over the 4 weeks in June on Tuesday evenings in Shrewsbury.

    Group riding forms the basis of most types of road riding. Even if you race time trials, do sportives or just want to go on club runs you are likely to train in a group at some point and you are going to need the techniques and understand the etiquette and protocols for safe, effective group riding. If you have an ambition to race on the road or on circuits, you will certainly need these skills.

    Riding in a group is satisfying and rewarding. It involves learning and practising a host of the fundamental skills you need to be a cyclist like, following a wheel, riding in pairs, ‘through and off’, cornering, pace lines, gear selection, handling, communication etc.

    It is skills based so fitness levels are secondary, it works best with a group of 10 to 12 riders and everybody will take away some new skills they have been able to practice in a traffic free environment. It’s also really good fun, promise!’
