    Continuing road works at Long Lane meant a course change to The Tiddly triangle for Round 11 of the Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport - as riders endured a gruelling five mile stretch directly into a headwind along the A53. With Series leader Rich Smith away on a training break in Majorca two of the chasing pack took advantage to narrow the gap at the top of the Series - although comeback man Tim Beardmore took victory on a fine, sunny evening only spoilt by that wind. Out for a large part of the season due to injury, the Nova Raider has lost no time picking up just where he left off, stopping the watch on 22 minutes 51 seconds for a fine winning margin of 26 seconds over the best placed Wrekinsport rider Rob Jackson.

    This was Jackson's first maximum six-pointer of the Series as he pushed out a strong challenge from Loch Leven CRT rider Fraser MacKinnon by 10 seconds with his 23:17 effort. Jackson moved up to third spot in the Series on the strength of this performance but still lies 13 points off the pace - although Tomos Hales is now breathing down Smith's neck just 6 points away from the top after adding five points to his tally. Hales was fourth Overall and second Wrekinsport rider after recording a fine 23:33 and based on his finishing effort he was definitely looking to make hay whilst the sun shone.

    In the Road Bike Series no Wrekinsport riders were in competition, meaning Dave Moore could breath a sign of relief as his dominant lead remains undiminished. Best placed Road Bike was Andy Hellowell of Revolutions Racing who crossed the line in 25:17, 1:12 ahead of Decathlon's Phil Roberts.

    A collapsing drain caused mayhem at Round 11 of the SB Sports Injuries Series as late-appearing traffic lights meant a rapid course rethink in Wrekinsport CC's planned 25. With the Crudgington - Shawbirch leg a no go, after some furious head scratching to come up with an alternative marshals were despatched for an 18 mile journey to Market Drayton's Gingerbread roundabout as a 25.8 mile emergency course was called into action, with riders being briefed on the change just minutes from the event start. 

    The change and the extra distance didn't seem to affect Dan Watts however as he took a superb win by over two minutes in a great time of 55 minutes 8 seconds. Watts took the maximum 26 points on offer in this bonus point round as he took his fifth straight win from the seven rounds he has entered, showing the tremendous form he is in. Watts clearly enjoyed his first taste of the super new Peplow surface and the near perfect conditions after thinking the race would be cancelled, and he had some favourable words for the re-jig: "I was pleased to take the win on a lovely evening and got to test the new ‘Peplow pavé’ for the first time, which was much better than the original - a shame they haven’t relayed the tarmac from Tern Hill to Gingerbread island. The SCCA is by far one of the best organised time trial league setups in the country and the organisers and helpers that managed to sort a new course at short notice is testament to that, so a huge thanks to them is owed".

    It was a close call for the runner-up spot as Chris Halford and Sam Morris were split by just 30 seconds, with Halford stopping the watch on 57:19. The Wrekinsport rider won his Club's 25 mile Championship which was run within the race and also took runner-up spot in the Veterans on Standard competition too with a fine +12:22. Halford wasn't finished there either, moving into joint top spot in the SB Series to tie on 170 points with Ian Nisbett, who finished 4th on the night in 58:38. Halford stated: "The course was good, I was putting power down on the drags and easing up on faster bits - and some lovely warm weather too. A big thank you to all the people that made a time trial possible due to road works, the real heroes of our sport".

    Meanwhile 19 year-old Sam Morris took third spot in only his second appearance of the Series in 2019. The Revolutions Racing rider also commented on the condition of the Tern Hill - Gingerbread section called into action unexpectedly: "Fair play to everyone who got the course so close to 25 miles! Not my best ride, not my worst. I struggled going over the bumpy section after Tern Hill and never really recovered".

    The only rider beating Halford in the Veteran's Championship doubled up with a fine win in the Women's too at Deb Hutson-Lumb proved what a great rider she is. The Nova Raider stopped the clock on 1:03:27 Actual and +13:45 Veteran's Standard as she looks to make up lost ground. Hutson-Lumb has only ridden four rounds in the SB Series in 2019 but has left a big impression on all of them - and from her comments almost for the wrong sartorial reasons: "Thanks to all involved in rapid course re-planning, it was too good an evening to miss. My third 25 mile time trial in a week and probably the most fun with the fabulous tailwind on the way back. I had a bit of a dilemma because my Tripsockz kept sliding down - pull them up or just Nora Batty it? In the interests of looking vaguely 'cool' pulling up was carried out! A great evening, and good to see so many riders out".

    Taking the Women's runner-up spot was the rapidly improving Alison Dockney, who narrowed the gap to Women's SB leader Louise Hurdley who finished fourth on the night in 1:10:55. Dockney ended her evening on 1:08:39, raising her effort thanks to a good deal of support on course. She stated: "A massive well done and thank you to Wrekinsport for managing a very last minute course change due to temporary lights on the course. I was really pleased with my result but paced it badly on tired legs. Big thanks to my mates who turned out to cheer me on which gave me a much needed boost on the return leg! Well done all, some fast times on a lovely evening for racing at last".

    Meanwhile Henri Bedford almost has the SB Junior Series title within his grasp for a second year as he opened up the biggest lead in any County Championship with another win - 136 points. Bedford crossed the line in 1:01:04 to take 9th spot Overall from a fine field of 36 riders, beating Evolve's George Coombes into Junior runner-up spot by 5:33. Bedford commented: "A good ride, although a little hot. I was pleased with my time given the additional distance on the revised course. Thank you to the marshals involved, and well done to all riders - a great win for Dan".

    Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport - Round 10 2019

    A glorious evening saw a number of personal bests recorded in Round 10 of the Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport - including the second in two weeks for Rich Smith as he continues to pull ahead in the Overall Series standings. Smith didn't have it all his own way however with Chris Halford taking the win at the head of a field of 24 riders with a fine time of 21 minutes 36 seconds, an improvement of 11 seconds over his Round 9 effort. Halford has gained maximum points from all five Rounds he has entered and moved up to third in the Overall standings, but with a 17 point advantage for Smith it will be a tough catch.

    Runner-up on the night was 15 year-old Henri Bedford, who made a determined charge for the finish line as he stopped the watch on 22:32, 16 seconds ahead of Smith. The Bridgnorth-based rider sliced eight seconds off his Round 9 PB despite being convinced that conditions weren't as favourable and now has an 11 point advantage over nearest challenger Tomos Hales.

    Birthday boy Rob Jackson thoroughly enjoyed celebrating his big day by taking fourth spot in 23:46, 6 seconds ahead of Fraser MacKinnon. Meanwhile there were more personal bests lower down the field with Mio Kontic recording an all-time best 29:22, shaving 37 seconds off his Round 9 effort. Kontic elevated himself to second in the Road Bike Series on the strength of this effort, but had no answer for Series leader Dave Moore, who made things interesting for himself by racing on a 1980's vintage Peugeot machine complete with down tube changers - whilst wearing jeans! Moore beat the 29 minute mark by a single second and was the fastest Wrekinsport rider - although like Smith he didn't have things all his own way.

    Entering their first time trials there were a brace of Decathlon riders, finally getting a chance to ride the Series they support. Starting a minute apart Philip Roberts got the better of Elliott Wills by 1:01 in a big battle for the finish line, with Roberts crossing in 26:45 and Wills recording 27:46. First-time efforts weren't reserved for the supporters as Revolutions Racings' Tina Elcocks entered her first ever solo time trial - and ended her evening with a respectable 31:27.

    A glorious evening saw personal bests tumble with a 21-strong field coming out to play as almost perfect conditions greeted Round 9 of the Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport. Wrekinsport riders took full advantage of familiarity with the Shawbirch - Cotwall Bank circuit to occupy the Top 5 places - with Chris Halford slowly making up lost ground in the Series with a fabulous time of 21 minutes 47 seconds.

    Halford was well over a minute clear of the chasing pack and whilst fourth to start reeled all preceding three riders in to finish strongly, churning his trademark 60-tooth single front ring as he flew down the 'mile straight' to the finish line. Not finishing first however was not in the minds of the next three riders as all recorded course personal bests - with fourth-placed Rob Jackson delighted with his fastest 10 mile time trial ever of 23:20. Heading the chasing pack was Decathlon Series leader Rich Smith, beating the 23 minute mark for the first time ever on a tough circuit that offers a range of challenges. A delighted Smith stopped the watch on 22:56 and his post-race comments were typically tongue-in-cheek: "It's only taken me since 2002 to get a '22' on that course. Another 17 years and I'll be in the 21's!"

    Smith critically finished three seconds ahead of his closest rival in Decathlon Series, Tomos Hales, who whilst delighted to post his fastest ever 10 on the Cotwall Bank circuit was disappointed to see Smith pull away by another point after a huge finishing effort to ensure he beat the 23 minute mark in a season-long tussle between the pair.

    One welcome sight was seven competitors riding road bikes to add a bit of spice to proceedings. Revolutions Racing's Andy Hellowell posted the fastest effort of 24:44, but Wrekinsport Chairman Dave Moore again took the honours in the club's Road Bike Series with his 26:14 ensuring he now has exactly double the points of nearest chaser Steve Smith who finished in 28:24 and now looks a shoo-in for the Series win.

    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.
