2016 Suffolk Punch

Record Breaking Suffolk Punch

Suffolk Punch 2016 Sign OnThe 28th annual Suffolk Punch on Sunday 7th February 2016 broke all previous attendance records with 165 starters. A bright, dry but windy day brought riders out from across the region to test themselves on the challenging Suffolk Punch routes.

The fact that The Suffolk Punch runs so smoothly is testament to Justin Wallace's well honed organisations skills and the able support of many, including our ever present chairman, Neville and the wonderful Maureen, Sue and Ann who served refreshments to the weary (Punch drunk?) riders as they returned. There was nothing but praise for the amazing selection of cakes contributed by Mark, Gill, Peter, Brenda, Des, Martyn, Dee, Karla, Nicole, Lesley, Carol, Jan, Sarah, Sue, Maureen and Ann. Very many thanks for your efforts.

Best of all, with money raised from the refreshments and a contribution from entry proceeds, the club will be donating £500 to the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Well done all - thanks for coming along and making it such a good day. Special thanks of course must go to Justin for running this event and for building it over the years into such a success.

Here's looking forward to 2017!

 

Roller Racing 2016 Results

John Brooks Triumphs in a tight final

Rose Bowl Final 2016A somewhat disappointing turn out for the annual Rose Bowl trophy didn't prevent a night of exciting racing. The highlight was an incredibly tight final that saw John Brooks win by the tightest of margins. Video is on YouTube here.

There were two Juniors competing, Oscar Woodward and Kali Sharman, who both rode very well and challenged in the minor finals with Oscar taking fourth spot overall. His time was the second fastest of the evening - perhaps a future roller racing star for next year?

Eastern Cyclo-Cross - Final Round 2015/16

Gold Standard for Harley

CX TrinityThe final race of this season’s Eastern Cyclo Cross League saw another bumper turnout from the Wheelers, this time at Trinity Park Ipswich on Sunday.  A new course provided ample scope for some hard racing along the extended tarmac straights before riders took on the compact but technical hilly section.  The racer also confirmed final league placings and medal winners, with top effort going to U10 Harley Gregory whose second place on the day capped a superb season’s racing with a well deserved gold medal.

G8 MTB Double Header 23rd/24th Jan

Off Road Cycling  Podium Placings for Wheelers

G8 MTB Santon DownhamA bumper programme of off road racing was enjoyed by West Suffolk Wheelers & Triathlon Club over the weekend, with the first of a mountain bike double header setting the tone on Saturday.

Hosted by G8 events at Santon Downham near Thetford, Saturday’s curtain raiser was a 5 mile loop held on Forestry Commission and private farmland. Used for the first time as a mountain bike course, the deceptively fast start on open fire tracks soon took riders into a much more technical series of single track, inclines, bomb hole and hairpin sections more used to seeing motocross racing.
