Portsmouth Evening News Cycling Reports Achive 2 of 3


Guy_Watson

Ten years after they were printed in the Portsmouth Evening News, I found my old articles in Word documents on an old laptop, so I thought I'd publish everything in this online article as an archive. I hope that maybe new generations of club cyclist will get a snapshot of the sport in the Portsmouth area as it was back in 2004.

N.B. Results & Reports in Black below were printed on Monday / Tuesday, while in Blue are the Previews and Event Diaries that were printed on Friday / Saturday

  • This is Article 2 of 3 and covers from August back to May 2004
  • Article 1 covers from May back to March 2004
  • Article 3 covers Feburary 2005 back to August 2004

Cycling Events Weekend Preview & Diary – Saturday 07-08-04
Guy Watson – cycling@thenews.co.uk

Cycling fans will be treated to a taste of the Tour de France this Sunday, when the International Havant Grand Prix arrives in South East Hampshire. Spectators will be entertained by the spectacle of 100 professional and elite amateur cyclists from the UK and foreign teams, as they race for 180km along local roads, followed by a full race convoy of back up vehicles. Race organiser, Garth Staden, chairman of the local Southdown Velo cycling team, has again secured full backing from Havant Borough Council, Hampshire Police and The Hunter Springs Consultancy, as well as dozens of volunteers from the local cycling community. The race starts from Havant Market Parade at 10.00am and follows a tough course, seeking out the hardest, most strength sapping roads in the area, namely the climbs of Old Winchester Hill (to be climbed 3 times) and H.M.S. Mercury, North of Clanfield (6 times.) 2003 winner, Malcolm Elliott (Pinarello RT,)who currently leads the U.K. National Premier Calandar Road Race Series, again looks to be the man to beat. Veteran Elliott, who came back to the sport in 2002 after a highly successful career that included a Commonwealth Games Gold, a points victory in the Tour of Spain and numerous British Championships. Of the challengers, Elliot’s team mate, Julian Winn, a Tour of Italy finisher and Welsh Champion, looks the strongest on paper and means that rival teams will have to mark 2 Pinarello men. Of the rest, the ‘Planet X’ team of Mark Lovatt and John Tanner, who revel in tough conditions, are sure to be in the thick of the action. Local interest will be with Danny Axford (Parrot Print TAL RT) from Winchester,  Ed Perry (SP Systems / Wightlink,) from the Isle of Wight and Liam Terry (Southdown Velo/MASSS/tHSC,) from Littlehampton.

Cycling Events Results & Reports – Saturday 20-06-04

Sunday’s Hampshire Police Cycling Club Summer Portsdown Road Race had to be re-routed on to a revised course, due to problems with a newly laid road surface at South Boarhunt. The combination of a shorter lap length and 7 ascents of the 20% climb from Southwick Roundabout to Portsdown meant that this was to be a race for climbers. Several riders tried to break away on the climb on the early laps, including Andy Rivett (Sotonia CC,) Eamon Watson, (Principia  RT/RBS) but each time the bunch closed the gap on the descent back to Southwick. On the last lap, junior Richard Heathcote (i-Team.co.uk/Wheel2Wheel/OnEleven,) launched a big attack at the foot of the climb, gaining 50 metres but he was overhauled on the steepest section by Principia’s Ian Legg. Legg, from Petersfield, splits his racing season between road and mountain biking and is an excellent climber with a strong sprint. He used both of these skills to hold off his rivals all the way to the line, beating Jimmy Finch (BC Private Member) in to 2nd place, with Portswood Cycle’s Philip Gough 3rd.

In the National 50 Mile Time Trial Championships, V.C. St.Rapheal’s Steve Walkling was only 3 minutes away from a medal, finishing a respectable 14th, in a time of 1 hour 53 minutes and 59 seconds.

The second round of the Team Axiom Southern Electric Road Race League, held on the Milbury’s circuit, near Warnford, was won by Eamon Watson (Principia RT), who narrowly beat super-veteran, Ray Robinson (Velocity/Off The Record.) into second place. Simon Berogna, (VC St. Raphael/Waite Contracts/Hewitt Cycles was 3rd.)

Cycling Events Results & Reports – Saturday 13-06-04
Guy Watson – cycling@thenews.co.uk

Hampshire Police Cycling Club’s Open 25 mile time trial on Sunday rounded off an excellent weekend of results for riders from the Portsmouth area. In an almost predictable manner, Ben Instone (A3CRG) again looked unbeatable, winning in a time of 53 minutes and 16 seconds. However, 2nd place Steve Walkling (VC St Raphael/Waite Contracts/Hewitt Cycles,) was only 34 seconds behind, with 53:50. Compared with Instone’s 1:14 winning margin over Walkling the last they met, in the Border CA event, these times could suggest that Walkling is closing in on his rival as the season progresses. VC St. Raphael were victors in the team category, with Simon Berogna just pipping veteran Alan Dodkins (Team Velo Vet,) for 3rd place and anchorman, Aran Stanton finishing 8th. Rowlands Castle Veteran, Gary Buckett, looks to be have his most consistent seasons to date, the velocity / Off The Record,) rider again finished amongst the leaders, with a 56.47 that was good enough for 6th place.

Instone perhaps found some motivation for his win following a 21 second beating by Andrew Cooper (Primera-bournemouth.co.uk) in Saturdays Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers 10 mile event. Instone’s near 30 mph time of 20:27 was no match for Cooper, who is coached by sports scientist Joe Beer.

Also on Saturday, over 150 competitors, across all categories, lined up at Thruxton Motor Circuit for round 4 of the Southern Circuit League. Toby Neave (Southdown Velo/MASSS Ltd/The Hunter Spring) showed determination and class to finish 4th in the Elite race, behind the experienced Rob Hurd and the dominant Alcan/Sun Chemical-Alcan/R.G.L Cycles duo of Greg Sandy and Neil Coleman.

Team Axiom’s Luke Myers continued his dominance of Wednesdays Mountbatten Centre Circuits by lapping the field to win.

Sunday’s Border Cycling Association 25 mile promotion on the fast Liss/Petersfield Course, features another exiting clash between local fastmen. Cowplain’s Pete Pickers is organising the event as a memorial to his former team mate, Bob Redrup, who died suddenly last September, while training on the course for the Duo Normand event in France.

Spectators will be keen to watch Steve Walkling (VC St Raphael/Waite Contracts/Hewitt Cycles) and Ben Instone, (A3CRG,) resume their battle to be the South’s leading short distance time trialist. On recent form, Instone may have the edge but in past years, Walkling’s form always improves steadily, as the weather warms up, so it should be a close result. Walkling’s team mates, Mike Wareham and Simon Berogna, plus Ray Robinson (Velocity/Off the Record, are also seeded riders. To the West of the region, Nick Gardiner (TimeTrial.co.uk) is the scratch man in the Wessex Road Club 50 mile event on Sunday, which starts near Bere Regis at 06:30 am.

Bunched Circuit Racing Returns to the Mountbatten Centre in Portsmouth on Wednesday after a weeks break and features racing for all categories from under 8 years through to Elite Amateurs.

Cycling News Report & Results – Week Ending 06 June 2004
Guy Watson - cycling@thenews.co.uk

Team Axiom believe that they have found a successful formula in promoting road racing for lower license categories on midweek evenings. Thursday evening saw 40 3rd and 4th category riders set out from Rowlands Castle Green for 6 laps of the Forestside circuit, with its 2km 1:12 climb. Simon Berogna (VC St Rapheal/Waite Contracts/Hewitt Cycles,) was very active on the climb, winning all of the lap prizes for first up the climb. Tim Costello (Southdown Velo / MAASS / The Hunter Springs Consultancy) was also riding aggressively and chose to attack at the summit of Forestside Hill each lap, in an attempt to break up the field. Despite Costello’s efforts, the main bunch stayed together until the finish and the charge for the line was won by Islander Dominic Coughlin (Vectis Offshore Sports CC,) with Tim Costello 3rd and Veteran Time Trialist, Ray Robinson (Velocity / Off the Record,) showing that he can mix it in the bunch by finishing in 6th place.

In the Border Cycling Association 25 mile time trial, Steve Walkling (VC St Raphael,) was a non starter, so it was left to his team mate, Mike Wareham to take on the challenge of an in form Ben Instone (A3GRG.) Instone produced another quality ride, to beat Wareham by 7 seconds with a 28mph 51min 41secs.

Portsmouth School of Cycle Racing have announced that they will be organising coached training sessions for all categories, including beginners, at Portsmouth’s Mountbatten Center cycle track every Friday evening. A road bike session will be held from 18.30 to 19.30 and a session for fixed-wheel track bikes will be held from 19.30 to 20.30. Road & Track bikes are available for loan.

Ian Legg Champion

Petersfield Cyclist, Ian Legg (Principia Road Team) was a worthy winner of Sunday’s South Division Road Race Championships, held on the Blacklands Triangle Circuit. Legg, who mixes Road and Mountain bike racing in summer, with winter cyclo-cross is a true all rounder and a has a bright future ahead of him. Legg won the race by breaking away from the pack with Richard Tanguy (Velo Sport Jersey,) and winning the final sprint for the line. The winner of the Portsmouth End CC Road Race in April, Phillip Gough (Portswood Cycles Race Team,) finished 50 seconds ahead of the chasing bunch for 3rd place, 1min 35secs behind the leading duo.

Three Portsmouth riders battled it out in the bunch sprint for 5th place, with Mathew Coates (VC St Raphael / Waite Contracts / Hewitt Cycles,) leading home Izak van Coller (Velocity / Off the Record) and Richard Heathcote (i-team-co.uk/wheel2wheelbikes.com/olympic Fire Protection.)

Unfortunately, the Senior Title race had to be cancelled due to a tragic Road Traffic Accident involving a motor cyclist. A date will be announced soon for the re-run.

Veteran Gary Buckett (Velocity / Off the Record) found some good form in the VTTA (Wessex) 25 Mile time trial at Thruxton, taking 6th place with a time of 55.23. Team Axiom’s Des Ludford was 9th in 55.57 and Portsmouth North End CC’s Glen Syder rode strongly to finish in 58.12.

In the Border CA 25 Mile Time Trial, Paul Pickup (Liphook Cycles) beat Steve Walkling (VC St Rapheal) by 23 seconds, with a near 30mph 51min 2secs.

Instone Mounts Local Challenge

Hantspol Cycling Club promote their open 10 mile time trial this evening, on the A3, North of Petersfield, with the first rider starting at 18.01. Starting near Greatham village on the B3006, the riders race to the Liphook roundabout and then return to Greatham. Course record is a 30mph, 19 minutes and a second, set by Michael Hutchinson in May 2001. 64 riders have entered, with top seed, Ray Hughes of Clarence Wheelers off at 19.00. Local fastman, Ben Instone (A3CRG) will be looking to maintain the form that won him the Hampshire Road Club ‘10’ at the beginning of the month. This year has been a breakthrough year for the popular Instone and on his home course; he will be hard for Hughes to beat. The other seeded riders are Simon Berogna (V.C. St. Raphael/Waite Contracts/Hewitt Cycles, Tony Harvey & Pete Pickers (Northovers VT,) Brian Molloy (Epsom CC) and Steve Geran (GS Stella.)

Instone rides again on Sunday and is top seed in the Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers 30 mile event at Lytchett Matravers in the New Forest. Portsmouth riders, Simon Berogna & Aaron Stanton (VC St. Raphael,) plus veteran, Ray Robinson (Velocity/Off The Record) are also riding and are set for high placings.

Instone’s Hat Trick

Ben Instone dominated local time trial events this week by scoring 3 open event wins in 5 days, taking some notable scalps in the process. The A3CRG rider managed to sustain the form that won him the Hampshire Road Club 10 mile at the beginning of the month and took his first of 3 wins in the Border C.A. 25 Mile event on Wednesday, with a time of 52m04s to beat Steve Walkling (V.C. St Raphael/Waite Contracts/Hewitt Cycles) by over a minute. Walkling’s consolation was leading team mates Malcolm Cox (54:03) and Simon Berogna (55:20) to the team prize.

On Saturday, Instone just pipped Ray Hughes by one second, to win the Hantspol CC 10 mile event at Liphook. Tony Harvey (Northovers RT) was 3rd. Ray Robinson (Velocity / Off The Record) was 4th and with team mates Gary Buckett and Richie Berogna, won the team event. The Fareham Wheelers ladies team of Judith Jones 24m53s, Melanie Biggs and Caroline Stiles broke their club’s long standing team record by a minute and 25 seconds.

Steve Walkling travelled to the midlands to participate in the 10 Mile National Championships and finished in a creditable 23rd place, with a time of 20m23s. His partner, Leslie Anne-Allen was 9th in the ladies event with 23m29s.

On Sunday, Instone showed no signs of fatigue, as he took the Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers New Forest 30 mile, in a time of 1.04.30. Second placed rider, Nicholas Harvey (Brighton Mitre CC,) lost over half a minute on the victor but the result is provisional, following a report of paced riding. Harvey caught Ian Ayliffe (Salisbury RC) around 15 miles and the pair spent the second half of the race trying to distance themselves from one another but still crossed the finish line meters apart.

Cowplain Olympian, Rob Hayles, continues his promising build up for Athens this week, by leading Team GB to a Gold Medal in the Sydney World 4000m Team Pursuit.
