2016 National 24 Hour Championship

This is the latest result of the 2016 National 24 Hour Championship promoted by the Mersey RC. They have had a few problems this year including a change of course, no night HQ and a change of result recorders. Michael Broadwidth won again, with a slightly lower mileage than last year. The Arctic Tack RT broke the Team 24 Hour Competition record.Lynne Biddulph was Lady's champion once again.

2015 LONG DISTANCE COMPETITION REPORT

This year we only had one 24 hour event. The Mersey continued as normal but there was no “southern” 24 hour. Esther is not minded to promote again because of the difficulties of finding a sensible course with the constant road changes and building that goes on, and we are not aware that anyone is intending to promote in her place. For the time being we go back to a single 24 hour event each year. This does reduce the number of potential finishers for the two competitions.

I have tabulated the finishers’ for the last five years below:

The 124 for 2011 was individuals who competed so if you rode two 24s you only counted once

When you take out the years when there were two 24 hours the number of finishers is reasonably consistent. However, it does seem to be that more and more 24 Hour competitors are interested in ultra distances rather than competing in the traditional set of Time Trials. We have had the lowest number of finishers in either competition for many years and I hop that this is not a trend.

However, the quality of rides is not diminishing. Over 63% of the finishers in the competition had an average speed over 20 mph, this compares to just 42% last year.

Senior Long Distance Bar

Stuart Birnie once again takes top spot with an average speed of over 23 miles an hour. He beat last year’s winner Gregory Woodford’s 23.194 miles an hour and indeed improved on his own winning speed of 23.21 mph for 2013. Alex Kirk was second and Chris Hopkinson third yet again. Chris improved his time from last year to over 22mph. Lynne Taylor/Biddulph was the top lady (yet) again. There appears to be no one to challenge Lynne. The full result is:

Veteran’s Long Distance BAR

The Veteran’s competition had 11 finishers. Chris Hopkinson improved his plus mph, but the +/- mph was far short of Greg Woodford’s 6.47 and Ray Retter’s 6.31 mph of last year. Lynne Biddulph was again top lady Vet, although she dropped to fourth overall from last year’s third. Despite the small number we did have two teams: RN&RMCA and Born to Bike.

2015 National 24 Hour Championship

The National 24 Hour Championship was won with the second furthest distance ever by Michael Broadwith. He missed Andy Wilkinson's record of 541 miles by just 4 miles. The weather was pretty atrocious for the event, which balanced out the lumpy course in Sussex that Andy set his record distance. Lynne Biddulph won the lady's event for the fourth year in succession.

 

You can catch up on more news about the event and some links to video of the event on the Mersey Roads facebook page

ESCA 24 Hour

Firstly thanks to everyone who rode and supported the ESCA event.

Jonathan Shubert (High Wycombe CC) is the 2014 RTTC National 24-Hour Champion with a provisional distance of 516 miles. 2012 Champion Ultan Coyle (Look Mum No Hands) and outsider Toby Hopper (Cardiff Ajax CC) with 505 and 495 miles respectively, although all the results are subject to official confirmation. The Provisional result can be found on the ESCA 24 Hour web site

The battle for the Woman's Championship was between former champions Lynne Biddulph (Taylor) of Born To Bike and Marina Bloom (Rugby RC) both having won the title four times over the years. This time it was Biddulph who triumphed notching up 449 miles to Bloom's 410. These were all the results available late on Sunday afternoon.

Lynne and Jill were matching each other almost to the second at the beginning. Jill got a few minutes ahead of Lynne who was a few minutes in front of Marina. The gap started to grow and spoke to John at the Boship around midnight and Jill was about an hour up on Lynn (time through the same checkpoint) but he thought Jill was only likely to do around 445 based on her times to the 12 hours (I spent quite a lot of time with sheets of paper and check cards and still have absolutely no idea what distances anyone did!!). The "girls" looked very stylish and could give some of the blokes a lesson or two (or twenty).

Apparently Jill packed on the finishing circuit so will record a distance but did not complete 24 hours. It appears (subject to confirmation) that Jill was hospitalised about three weeks ago after Land End to John o'Groats ride. Perhaps surprising that she lasted as long as she did. But I felt very sorry for everyone because we had quite a catalogue of disasters.

First off there was a burst water main at South Chailey so we had temporary traffic lights. they were not too bad because they were visible for probably half a mile or more and you could I think time arrive for the green. Then there was a crash (three cars) just before the Little Horsted RAB as they came down the hill to finish the circuit. The road was partially blocked and the riders had a few problems getting through so the circuit was closed early and everyone moved down to the Broyle (or boil) circuit.

Things settled down then until the night circuit when another burst main at the Cuckoo rail crossing and another set of temporary lights - which were stuck on RED both ways. Eventually fixed.

It seemed to be two very hot days with noticeably colder night. Ultan turned up at his car for his jacket about 11 and his male helper was wearing it (to keep it warm for him!!!!!!!!!). Apparently the chap was asleep and they had a fight getting it off him.

Mike Kilby is meeting up with Esther on Wednesday to go through a first set of results. We hope to publish a provisional result by the weekend. If anyone has any queries over their distances can they make sure they provide some evidence. Garmin track etc. If there is only a minor discrepancy (a mile or so) then this can be due to lots of reasons. The distance for each rider is calculated based on the course measurements.

Now after the serious bit I took this photo at North Chailey. Anyone fancy adding a caption. My offerings at the side

Steve Dennis and Dave Dallimore at North Chailey

24 Hours with Robin Johnson - what do you expect?

"OK Dave can you hear the riders coming yet"?
