Jackie Townsend 1:4:05
Ann Bath 1:12:46
Rachel Croggon 1:8:40
Jake Dodd 1:9:38
All have recorded their best 25 of the year.
Club Ladies Team Record twice, as they started in that order: 3:25:31 & 3:22:23
Joe Bertorelli 1:0:02
Andy Avis 1:6:26
Not an improvement on either of their times.
I say "sadly" because Jackie already has enough trophies for her wheel-barrow at the Club Dinner! ;-) However with the steady improvements she has made during the year she deserves it.

However, if Jackie can improve her 25 next week by half a minute, without Rachel making a corresponding improvement then it could be all change over the trophies!
Today's event settled the final club events points trophies, with Andy just about securing his lead over Joe in the Men's points trophy and Jackie overhauling Jake for the Dar Trophy (Handicap Points).
Joe had an interesting ride when he realised that he'd left his race shoes behind, and rode in trainers on Look style pedals - he said concentrating on keeping his feet on the pedals took his mind off his back hurting! - but he was still fastest round.
Thanks to Frank for timekeeping our event before dashing off to Herne Hill to timekeep there for the afternoon.

Jake's ride gives her the record by 0.013 miles, or approximately 22 yards!
We also improved the team record by about half a mile, despite my best attempts to the contrary.
Ann, Jake & Grant won the VTTA National Team award with a total plus 0f +16.23 and also the VTTA East Anglian Group Team award.
and Ann won 2nd Handicap in the event and also 1st Lady on Handicap.

Names in red indicate where the trophy has been settled - either due to there being no further qualifying events, or else an unassailable lead! Ironically, Andy is in the position where a win in the Consolation tomorrow would secure him the Men'sPoints Trophy which would then deny him the Consolation trophy.
And even more ironically, we have instituted a number of women's trophies in recent years to recognise the increasing number of women in the club, and Jake & Jackie have mopped up a good number of the open trophies this year as well. The men may lament the "disgrace" of conceding the trophies to the women, but where competition for the trophies is open to all members we aren't going to re-write the rules to keep the women from winning them (as I have heard tales of from other clubs.....).

The Consolation Tropy is awarded on handicap, so the entire event is run based on handicap. Because of this the handicap is sealed (so no one can work out who they need to catch in order to beat them on handicap). The club event points awarded are also based on handicap placings for this event. Also the trophy itself goes to the highest placed rider (on handicap) who has won no other trophy this year, which rules out certain members who have already secured trophies - see the next post for the provisional trophy winners for 2007.

JOHN IBBOTSON ‘CAKE QUEST 2007’
John Ibbotson or ‘Ibbo’ as he was more affectionately known was a unique and very special person. Someone who combined his passion for racing at the highest level with a sense of fun which he passed on to anyone he came into contact with.
He raced professionally in
Sadly John passed away on 27th September 2005 and left a hole too large to fill. The coaching side of Fit-For ceased but a number of his friends and clients decided to keep the name going and run a club in his memory……..
With this in mind, on October the 14th 2007, we bring you the first of what we hope will be many Ibbo Cake Quests. Three distances are on offer to cater for varying levels of fitness, all starting and finishing in John’s home of Walton on the Hill in
Rides are denoted as:
Carrot Cakes 110 km
Fruit Cakes 150 km
Entries in advance, with cheques payable to: The John Ibbotson Memorial Fund for £10, or £15 entry on the line.Ibbo Cake Quests

As a warm up event to get everyone in the mood, a fundraising barbecue is taking place on September 30th. This will take place in the field behind the Fox and Hound pub in Walton on the hill from 1.00 - 5.00pm. Food and drink costs £10 per head or £5 for children, vegetarians are also catered for. Everyone is welcome and with an increasing list of amusements and entertainment planned with highlights such as the “wonky bike challenge” and a “flying monkey competition” it is sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face…John would have loved it!
All profits raised will go towards ‘The John Ibbotson Memorial Fund’ which aims to help support carefully selected young aspirant riders making their first tentative steps towards racing in

And a special thanks to: Joe for stopping and giving me his pump after I punctured along by the Hand in Hand, an act which certainly lost him the Club Event win. Also to David French for informing next marshal, David Margery, who very kindly came and collected me and returned me to the HQ, which was greatly appreciated. Thanks to you all.
Commiserations to Jackie over her 2min late start which cost her the Club Record.
