KCA 12 Hour

There is a list of riders for the KCA 12 Hour on the 12 Hour's own webiste at www.kca12hour.org.uk. The course has been updated for various changes, and you can now "fly" the course (you need the Google Earth plug in - if you don't have it the site automaticly directsyou to where it can be downloaded).


2008 and 2009 Year Books

John Clegg has produced comprehensive booklets for the annual luncheons. I found an email from John with the 2008 Year Book. You can downloaded it here. I also have added a copy of the 2009 version here. Many thanks to John for producing these useful and informative documents.

KCA 12 Hour Course

Please note that the course details previously shown on the website were the 2009 version. In 2009 the event avoided Tenterden due to road works. At present the intention is for riders to use the Tenterden circuit in 2010. The course details on the web site are now correct.


New KCA web site

As part of a tidying up of all the various sites linked to the KCA this is the final stage with a new design for the main site. The old site was built as a a temporray measure because of problems with the company that was hosting the site. Unfortunately the problems with the company affected 5 sites I look after. I hope that the new site will be more attractive and interesting.

I expect there will be a few teething problems so if you spot anything amiss please email me.


New 12 Hour Website

We have just finished work on revamping the KCA 12 Hour web site. The work has also inlcuded updating the 12 Hour Archive. The next stage will be to bring the main KCA site upto date. I must apologise for the lack of information on the current site. This was built as a temporray measure because of problems with the company that was hosting the site previously. I hope that the new site will be more attractive and interesting

The KCA 12 Archive now enables you to look more easily by club, individual, distance and event. There is also the start of a list of officials. There is more work to be done to add actual result sheets, more information on the officials and pictures. I have a huge amount of material so this will take a while but the design of the site now means information can be added as I have time. It may be possible to extend the 12 Archive to cover moe of the KCA's past, but that is another project in itself.

SEAN YATES' KCA COMPETITION 50 RECORD BROKEN AFTER 14 YEARS

Sean set this record in 1996 when riding for Motorola with a 1.47.53. It was obviously set in our Open 50 but I do not have details to hand as to which course he set it on. It was certainly not the latest version of the Q50/11 as this version was new this year. It has taken a superb ride by Kevin Tye of 1.46.42 on Q50/11 to beat Sean's time so Kevin is the course record holder for Q50/11 as well as holding the Individual Men's 50 Record on any course in a KCA event. He was over the moon with his ride at the KCA event & said he had dreamed of breaking Sean's record for years, so we offer him our sincere congratulations. Pat Hill
