The three up result is now on the site, and you can see how well the teams did on the results page.


Entry Forms

Can you please note that when entering a time trial the january 2004 form is no longer valid.

All entries must be submitted on the January 2007 form.

Any entrant using the january 2004 version will be asked by the promoter to re-submit their entry on the correct form.

The 2007 form can be downloaded from the CTT website .


MORE KCA NEWS ON NEW WEBSITE

We are pleased to announce that Bob Burden has a very interesting site www.spinwheels.co.uk that he hopes will cover almost every cycling event in the County, of any description. This site will have a KCA News page plus will show all our start & result sheets,& in many cases will have photos of many competitors in their Gallery section. See the photos of every team in the recent 3-Up 25,courtesy of Aly Nye. This will be a big help to Tim Carpenter the KCA webmaster so we hope that you will find Bob's site interesting be you social cyclist or racing man or woman.


Bill Hurlow - Master frame builder

We are sad to announce that Bill died yesterday 28 February 2010 aged 88, just a few days short of his 89th birthday. He had long been a part of the Kent cycling scene after a lifetime of being involved with creating some of what one could call the most beautiful of frames & in fact it was Bill who made the name of Condor famous for the lugs he designed & produced on the machines he worked on. Monty Young, Condor' owner acknowledges that fact in the great booklet he produced about his company & its ride to fame. Bill also worked for other outlets & always knew if he had been the artist on a particular frame as Ted Hill once found out years ago when showing Bill his much loved Condor bike at an event. Bill took one look at the lugwork & scoffed that he had not done 'those lugs'- someone else had been responsible. They were still fine work. Bill was a 'character' irascible at times but one that will be missed by his many friends in the trade & Kent cycling world. We have no news re funeral arrangements as yet.


Bill Hurlow's Funeral

Bill's funeral will be on Tuesday 9th March at Margate Crematorium at 12.40pm. We have no infor re flowers or donations but all are welcome. His good friend John Hunt hopes to have Bill's personal collection of his famous lugs on show.


OUTDATED CTT ENTRY FORMS BEING USED

We are surprised to see that some Kent riders are still using an out of date CTT entry form, namely the form with January 2004 in the bottom right hand corner. This was superceded in Jan 2007, & in this age of litigation when these forms could feature in claims in the event of an accident, we ask riders to comply with CTT requirements & organisers to ensure they accept only the Jan 2007 entry forms. It could save you, the KCA & CTT a lot of aggro.


Q50/11 Changed course details

Please note that the Q50/11 has been changed due to problems at the old finish. The new course details are correct in the 2010 SEDC Handbook just out, and have been updated on the SEDC website.


URGENT! KCA 3 UP 25 TEAM TTT

Please note that the SEDC 2010 handbook just out has a number of errors in it, one of which is that it shows the 3 Up TTT as being on 14th April instead of on 14th MARCH!!!Please pass the word around. Ted Hill


WEDNESDAY WOBBLERS ROTA

This is a reminder that although the Hawkenbury Inn replaced Claygate on our list of pubs, we will not be going there on Dec 16th, on what would have been the usual rota date for Claygate. At the time I needed to put a pre Xmas rota together for magazines, we were not sure about Hawkenbury, so we gave 16th Dec to the Smarden Bell by bringing them forward a week from 23 Dec as they asked if we could miss them out that day as they were booked for Xmas Lunches as most WW pubs are at this time of year. We have therefore cancelled an official WW meet on 23rd Dec due to lack of a venue plus our possibly poor numbers.

This means that immediately after Xmas we will be back on our normal rota which will appear in the SFACC mag, the KVN Newsletter for Dec & I hope, the Sboro Whs mag & I give below anyway for non SFA Wobblers. I have rota slips to hand out next Wed etc but meanwhile please make a note re 16th & 23 Dec & warn your friends.

2 Dec George Egerton

9 Dec Lord Raglan, Rabbits Cross

16 Dec Smarden Bell (fill-in venue)

23 Dec No official meet but the Hawkenbury will welcome anyone fancying a private run out IF you phone to warn them.01580 890567

6 Jan 2010 Unicorn Marden

13 Jan Stilebridge Inn Marden

20 Jan George Egerton

27 Jan Lord Raglan

3 Feb Hawkenbury

10 Feb Smarden Bell & so on in rotation from Woolpack


Senior and Senior Team BAR

I have just completed the Senior and Senior Team BAR tables Dave Wheelerbelow.  We had a good turn out this year as
this is the highest number of qualifiers that we have had in the 6 years that I have been Time Trial Secretary.

David Wheeler is our 2009 Champion with an average of 24.970 mph, narrowly beating Andy Miles' average of 24.930.  But for Andy's unfortunate chain break in the 12 the result would have been even closer.

In 2008 there was no qualifying teams but this year we had no less than three teams competing for the trophy, with VC Elan - Harry Perry Cycles taking top honours ahead of San Fairy Ann CC.

I have taken great care to ensure the accuracy of the tables, but mistakes do happen.  So if anyone spots any errors or omissions by all means get in touch.
