image Congratulations to Mike McLeavy, Mark Symons and Nick Fairfield on taking Bronze in the reincarnation of the old Humberside Championships. Thanks to Richard Guymer and HTRC for promoting the event which deserved considerably more support from local riders than it received. The course may not be super fast but is a true test of riders ability.

Congratulations to Dave Hudson who today secured the 60+ title in this season long series held on sporting courses throughout Yorkshire. Today's final round was held on the Burton Fleming 10 mile course promoted by Scarborough Paragon. The course can challenge even the best of riders but today's winner, James Gullen, produced a 20 minute ride to set new record figures demonstrating yet again that there is more to time trials than being obsessed with drag strips like the V718!

Anyone fancy a weekend of riding?
On the weekend of the 8th and 9th October I am planning a two day club ride, covering approx 90 miles each day. We will be staying the night at the Whitestonecliffe Inn near Sutton Bank. There will be at least one car travelling up to carry any kit required for the two days. There are 12 places available after myself and Clare who will be driving up. The cost for accommodation should be about £30 a head. I have also booked a table for an evening meal for 14 people. Although the pub does not do breakfast we will have a short ride into Helmsley for the full English. Anyone interested please get in touch asap as I have already had a lot of interest. A £20 deposit is all that is needed to secure your place. Contact me on 07533654751 or email me on
