GHS 10 mile open TTT R10/23 7th May 2016

On Saturday 7th May at 2pm, Port Talbot Wheelers held a 10 mile TTT open event at Resolven. Event organiser was Alf Williams.

The TT took place on the R10/23 course on the back road (B4242) with perfect conditions.


The event was also the GHS 10 mile time trial in Resolven. This is the regional heat of the British schoolboy/girl time trial championships. Turnout was lower than we would have liked but those that did enter put in a great effort. Some incredible times. 25 minutes on the back road from a 12 year old!

Winners of the age awards go to the national GHS championship.

This was also the club handicap 10. Results from the handicap are as follows.

Thursday evening Time Trials no longer open to entry on the night.

We have just had a committee meeting and following the difficulties that Alf experienced last week in trying to take money, set the field, fend off irate drivers, and get items back to people who wanted to leave before he had finished timing. We have made the decision that for the forseeable future we will only take entries from fully paid up club members (First or second claim). For those who dont know what second claim membership means, its when you race for one club but are also member of a second club to allow you to ride club events. so joining will not jeapardise your member to you home club.

This does not affect you being able to join on the night but please bring a form which is downloadable from the Web Site  the subscription fee is £20 (its cheaper than riding 7 events so well worth it)

Also to ease the timekeepers we ask the following.
- We recommend that you carry a light as if we get high numbers again it may get dark.
- Please shout your number out as you finish,
- try not to interupt the timekeeper for times etc. until he has finished timekeeping.

On behalf of the committee, thanks in advance

2 UP Team TT - Sunday 13th March 2016

On the 13th March we had our first Team time trial of the year organised by our newest committee member Matt Smith. The first riders set off at 10am.

The 25 mile TT was ridden as a team of 2 riders, same or mixed genders, same club or composite pairs (different clubs).

First off was PTW's Morgan Ley and David Hendry who won fastest team with a junior taking home a prize of £20.

The fastest time of the day was recorded by a composite team of our own member Richard Gambling with Christopher Jones of Ride bike Wales clocking an impressive 55:14 and taking prize of £40 for fastest composite team.

In second place was Chris Gibbard and Philip Tucker of Bynea CC by a mere 4 seconds. Third place saw Swansea wheelers team Nic Cleave and Trevor Lloyd who were three minutes 13 seconds behind.

It was good to see several female participants. Gaynor Hughes and Sarah Rees of Bynea CC took first of the womens category with 1:16:41 taking home the prize of £60.

Sadly 7 teams did not start, three of which offered their apologies.
