PNECC Summer Road Race - Saturday 28 June 2014

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

Entries (£25) open online 1 Feb 2014. 60 miles (7.5 laps) of the Owslebury circuit. It is not a "first come first served" online entry, so there is no immediate rush, but expect a quality field as the promoter will base acceptance on a rider's performance and experience. I will be canvassing club members (not riders) for assistance in the run up to the event. At this early stage I am optimistic for Accredited Marshals (to legally stop traffic) and members from the motorcycle National Escort Group to assist in road safety.

Popped my entry in today. For anyone seeking a bit of practice before hand the James Atherton Road Race is using the same course on the 13th April. I intend to enter once I have double checked my diary and bank account.

With just two weeks before the closing date there will be a full field of 60 riders for our event as there are currently over 80 entries pending.  All the administrative paperwork is complete and authorised and I am awaiting confirmation of Accredited Marshals and riders from the National Escort Group.  As with all events of this nature I am heavily reliant upon the goodwill of volunteers and below is a list of those who have already agreed to assist on the day.  There are, however, still a few positions that I need to fill (identified by "volunteer" below).  If you can help, please leave a note on this forum or send me a private message.

Lead Car - Mike Simpson + Terry Deex

Second Car - Paul Martin + Keith Jarrett

First Aid Car - Martin Randle + Kevin Thompson + Yvonne Frampton

Photographer/Assistant Judge - Harry Jackson + Dave Swaffer

Time Keeper/Assistant Judge - Graham Coleman + Ray Woods

Signage/Finish Line/Equipment - Mark Williams + Andy Page

Parish Hall/Refreshments - Sheila Martin + Julie Jarrett + Katie Pycroft

Red Flag Marshals - Andy Page + Tom Frampton + Alan Collins + Paul Giles + Rhys Lippiatt

Thank you.

A final plea for a volunteer please. I have been informed by South Region BC that I need a further Red Flag Marshal for this event. If anyone is available to assist please post below or send me a PM. Thank you.

Thank you to all volunteers for assisting with this weekend's road race. Could I ask that PNE jerseys are the order of the day please to promote the Club's visibility on the day. Thanks again  Very Happy

A massive thank you to all concerned in promoting today's inaugural Summer road race for the Club. There were many plaudits from race officials, spectators and riders alike and it was pleasing to see that it all ran extremely smoothly. Good to see a strong contingent of Club riders and a well earned 8th place and a Prime award for Tom Morris. Same again next year Very Happy

The club owes Mark a massive thank you for working so hard to make the race the success it was. This was a huge undertaking and must have taken up a huge amount of Mark's time, so well done Mark and all the other helpers you encouraged to make this a memorable day for the club.

Can someone please post the link on the Club's Facebook page. Thanks

I want to echo what Dave said: A big vote of thanks to Mark for such a well organised event. Good course, good HQ, great event management by all of the officials including club volunteers - special mention of Rhys stood by the side of the road in a gloomy hollow on his own, guarding against that nasty rut and getting rained on. Well done to all of our riders and thanks to all who took part. I'm already looking forward to next year :-)

Remember when teachers, police officers, nurses, doctors, rank+file civil servants, firefighters and lollipop ladies crashed the stock market, wiped out banks, took billions in bonuses and paid no tax? No, me neither.

Massive thanks to Mark and all the volunteers, it was a very well run event. I think that's got me enough points to keep 2nd cat for next year so I'll definitely have to come back and do better next time.

It was good to have a good group of riders from the club as well, hopefully we'll be able to repay the club in the future when it's our turn.

Whilst waiting for the train today I bumped into Harry Veale who raced on Saturday for Cycleworks, who said he thought it was an excellently organised event. I've no experience of road races but it all seemed to go pretty slickly from what I could see  Very Happy
