Interclub Race 4th August 2015.

Would members please note, that Tuesday 4th August 2015, we are taking part in the annual interclub event against Lincoln and Retford. The tt that was originally planned for this date(hosts Trent valley) has been CANCELLED and replaced by this interclub. The race will see all 4 Gainsborough cycling clubs combining together as one team to represent Gainsborough against Lincoln and Retford. The race will be over 10 miles on the Ingham circuit. First rider off at 7 pm, but please arrive early for signing on, HQ for this is Aisthorpe village hall. Would riders please come with their best time for a 10 mile tt over the past year, be sensible don’t pick a time that was silly fast(like a back gale all the way) , but also no selective memory please ! ( it has to be fair).

We have now received this email from Mike Overton from TVRC:

Hi everyone, next week’s event for all of us, is the annual competition between Gainsborough, Lincoln and Retford, hosted this year by Lincoln Whs. The course is the 10mile Ingham to Harpswell roundabout and return to finish before the Cammeringham village sign. The H.Q is Aisthorpe village hall situated between Scampton and Brattleby on the B1398. Start is 7pm but allow enough time to ride to the start which is at the top of Ingham hill,approx 10-15 minutes. Make sure every rider knows his or her best 10 time this year as it will be needed for the h/cap part of the competition. My advice is to get there early as there’s usually a queue to sign on. The course can be fast on the right day, so here’s hoping. Good luck and see you on the night. Mike.
