Top place went to Dan Fricker with a very good time of 22m 30s, just 8s faster than Rodney Smith’s 22m 38s. Keith Walker was 3rd with 22m 47s, whilst Antony Bee just failed to record a 22m ride finishing in 23m 05s. All four times were excellent in the hard conditions.

22th July 2015 IWADE - 10mile

After two weeks cancelations due to operation stack, wigmore C.C. latest event was on the  Iwade circuit this week. With  the M20 was still closed it did affect the Iwade course with many motorist trying to avoid the slow moving traffic on the M2 by using the lanes to get to Sheppey. This meant many members failed to reach the start in time to compete.

With only 9 starters, two of which were D.N.F. due to puctures the result sheet is very small.
On a warm but very windy evening Keith Walker gained his 2nd win with a good time on a tough evening with a time of 23m 37s, this was 17s faster than 2nd place Antony Bee.

1st July 2015 HARRIETSHAM - 10mile

With the M20 being used as a lorry park the A20 was not available for time trials.

The Medway Velo Club kindly invited the Wigmore C.C. to join them on the Iwade course so that the Wigmore members could still have an event. On the hottest day this year many riders found the conditions unpleasant and their times reflected the problems racing in the high temperature. Nevertheless Keith Walker had no problems and won with a time of 23m 43s. Putting him 34s clear of 2nd place Tony Bee. The previous week only 2s separated them. The outstanding ride of the evening was by 16 year old Ben Foames who recorded a P.B. with 24m 21s.

Once again the winner was Rodney Smith with an excellent time in the windy conditions of 58m 45s. A little slower in 2nd position was Jacob Nicholson with 59m 37s and Keith Walker 3rd in 1h 00m 26s.

The Wigmore C.C. 16 year old youngster rode the 10 mile event at Harrietsham on his 1982 B.S.A. medium gear fixed wheel and surprised everyone with his time. With an average cadence over 100 r.p.m. and legs spinning like a windmill in a gale force wind he speed down Harrietsham Hill to finish with P.B. time of 27m 02s. Good enough to be most improved rider. Rodney Smith was fastest with his 3rd win and a very fast time of 22m 17s. Andy Dixon took 2nd position with 23m 20s and 3rd place went to Dave Bishop in 25m 19s.

20th May 2015 HARRIETSHAM - 10mile

Although it started in clear cool conditions, 4 miles along the course it was dull and raining, making the turn at the roundabout slippery. Fortunately everyone negotiated the turn safely and produced some very good times. This is why you are asked to have a bright rear light on. With the cars having their head lights on because of the poor visibility you really should have lights on. If you don’t and you have an accident you will probably get the blame for not having a light on.  Rodney Smith was fastest with a great time of 22m 11s. He was well clear of 2nd placed Andy Dixon with 23m 35s. and Keith Walker’s 23m 57s for 3rd position. Two riders posted P.B’s. They were Alan Newman with 25m 28s and Matt Owens with 27m 18s.
