WOLVERHAMPTON WHEELERS CYCLING CLUB Welcome to the “Wheelers” one of the oldest and most successful cycling clubs in the Country

WWCC Hill Climb Championships 2014


Yes, Autumns here and it's HILL CLIMB TIME!!!


This year we have a NEW look to the event - combining with our friends, the Newport CC for a bigger & better event - in fact it is two events in one.....


The normal Club event will take place as ever in Ironbridge at 11.30 am on Sunday 12th October.


Starting from just past Darcy's Restaurant (the Old Station Inn) and climb Bridge road (directly the far side of the actual Iron Bridge.


Darcy's Restaurant will act as the event HQ and be open from 11.00 am for coffee or something stronger... courtesy of Jim & Jane Morrison....


Car Parking is available right next to the start - a small charge applies.


But as I said this is two events in one as there is an Open event which incorporates the Shropshire Cycling Club's Hill Climb Championship starting at 1.00 pm.


NOTE

Riders must enter this event in advance to be eligible for prizes.

Entries on the line will be only be accepted for the Club Event at 11.30 am (£3.00 Senior/Jun/Vet & £2.00 Youth).

The WWCC Club Champion/s (all ages/categories) will be the rider with the fastest time/s regardless of which event they ride: the Open or Club event.

So why not give it a go?

This is one of the shortest races you will do all year, all over in 3 minutes & 5 seconds for Stuart Dangerfield's Record....

Surely you can't get tired in that short a time?

The Wheelers Club Run will leave from Aldersley Leisure Village at 9.30 am and go direct to the event.


Wishing every one a great day out, Robin Kyte - Event Organiser.





Club Hill Climb Championships 2013


This Sunday's Hill Climb Champs (6th October 2013) saw a very depleted field take to the start line, despite a good many riders meeting at the Stadium or riding over to the event.


However, we did have a Professional rider compete as a private ride - Liam Holohan, just returned after a well deserved break following an intensive year with Madison-Genisis. Liam who has ridden many International races including a fine showing in this years Tour of Britain was interested to see how he might compare against the times set by Former 5 times National Champion - Stuart Dangerfield....


As expected Liam was inside the magic 3 minute 30 mark but not quite as fast as Stuart's record of 3.05, which is still highly creditable given that Liam had just returned from a two week lay off and relinquished his race diet for a while.


The competition between Wheeler's members was very close in deed with just 2 seconds covering the top three:

in third place was former Club Champion and ex 1st category road man Matt Morris.


The ride of the day was surely that of young Joe Lister who was just a solitary second away from a remarkable win - Obviously following in his father Ian's footsteps - another 1st category and International road rider.


But the win went to Mark Primmer, who since packing smoking and taking up bike riding has gone from strength to strength - a great ride.

The Veteran's honors were fought out between In Horton the club Time Trial Secretary and Pete Escritt who ran out winner in that category.

Lets hope that this will inspire a few more to take part in next years event.
