Dennington wins VC Baracchi’s 50-mile championship

PUBLISHED: 09:25 25 August 2017

Paul Dennington of Velo Club Baracchi won the club’s 50-mile championship with a fine ride on the A143.

His time was 2-04:36 and gave him the edge over Paul Hayward (2-05:02), Lucas He (2-06:02) and Alex He (2-17:10).

Lucas and his father Alex had not raced the distance before. Lucas’ time established a VCB junior record that will be hard to better unless he himself has another go at the distance.

The event also incorporated the East District Championship and the winner was Matthew Senter of Team VeloVelocity with 1-47:23, from Harley Matthews of DAP CC (1-47:23), Daniel Bloy of Team VeloVelocity (1-48:39) and Ben Stancombe of King’s Lynn CC (1-54:04).

The women’s district champion was Jennifer Smart of VC Norwich with 2-13:48 and Chris Nudds of CC Breckland was the veteran winner with +27:36 on age standard from his 2-04:42 ride.

The event was organised by Richard Allen of VCB.

The penultimate Diss CC club 10 attracted a big entry on the Billingford to Needham Market roundabout out-and-back course.

Mark Richards, VCB’s vice chairman though now riding for DAP CC, took advantage of the warm conditions to set a new course record of 20:48, with Liam Gentry (also of DAP CC) second in 21:29 and Simon Scott of Anglia Velo third in 21:35.

The VCB times were good too, with a course best 22:02 by Hayward for fifth place, 22:38 by Dennington and 24:34 by Alex He.

The VCB tandem pair, John Swanbury and Ali Banks, were pleased with their 22:31 ride.

Richards also rode the Eastern Region Road Race Championship for DAP CC on the old A11 near Saffron Walden and climbing into the Chiltern Hills west of that road. He took ninth place, 3:11 down on the winning time of Rhys Howells (Team Wiggins).

Keith Wink flew the flag for Velo Club Baracchi on the northern Tour de Broads sportive 100-mile route.

He finished in four hours and 57 minutes with a 20.3mph average which would have been quicker but for traffic, junctions and road works.

John Thompson rode the Essex Rivers and Reservoirs 215km audax from Witham, with controls at Stock, Burnham-on-Crouch, Tillingham, Abberton Reservoir Visitor Centre, Sudbury, Gt Bardfield and Littley Green before returning to Witham.
