Sunday 21st June - ECCA Open 100 incorporating the Southend
Wheelers 100 Mile Championship
A very early start and a drive up to Newmarket may not be the best
preperation for 100 miles but both Matt Welbourn and Jamie Maidment rode
the ECCA Open 100 which doubled up as the 2015 Southend Wheelers 100
Mile Championship. This was the first 100 mile TT for both, well done to
both for entering. Matt Welbourn takes the 2015 100 Mile Cup with a time
of 4:15:02, good enough for 48th overall and Jamie Maidment was 62nd
with a time of 4:55:52, riding a road bike rather than a TT bike.
Friday 19th June - BMCC 9-Up, Silverstone
The Southend Wheelers Team (sorry haven't got the team to hand,
apologies if incorrect I think it was Adam Jones, John Gretton, Liam
Ellis, Dave Pennington, Dean Silk, Jamie Maidment, Colin Lewin,
Barry Simpson and James Jenkins) were 31st with a time of 25:48 for the
11 mile 9-Up Team Time Trial around Silverstone.
Defending champions Richardsons-Trek were comfortable winners in 21:41.
Thursday 18th June - Summer Series, Hog Hill
Wednesday 17th June - Wednesday League
A busy night at it was an EETC event also but no changes at the top
- James Jenkins maintaining his recent form, Phil Warner was fastest Vet
and Denise Kemp first Lady.
Saturday 13th June - Maldon Open 10 and GHS, Steeple
First of all, congratulations to James Jenkins and Katie Elliston;
both have qualified for the GHS Finals. In terms of the Sunday League,
James's time of 22:02 was comfortably good enough for fastest Wheeler
with father Dan second with 24:51. Denise Kemp was first Lady with
26:51, juts over a minute quicker than Katie Elliston, who set a solo PB
With some riders now approaching the 7 event qualification, the Sunday
Scratch League is shaping up into a battle between Matt Welbourn and
James Jenkins, Dave Pennington is looking good in the Handicap. He just
needs to ensure he races 7 events. Denise Kemp and Dan Jenkins are
leading the Veterans competition. Denise Kemp is also looking strong in
the Ladies stabdings, but Hannah Shean, Hayley Williams or Hayley Hawes
could put some pressure on if they enter enough events.
James Jenkins has a perfect record in the Junior event, with Jordan Kemp
and Hannah Shean fighting for second and third. In the Juvenile
competition Jack Evans is leading Katie Elliston.
Wednesday 10th June - Wednesday League
James Jenkins maintained his recent form with another victory as
well as being fastest rider on the night, Peter Stiff was first Veteran
and Hannah Shean first Lady. The Time Trial tables are starting to take
shape now. Although Dave Pennington currently leads the scratch
competition, both James Jenkins and Jamie Maidment have raced one event
less and will be first and second once the affect of only taking the
best 10 places begins. There is a similar story in the Ladies event with
Jordan Kemp and Hannah Kane leading by virtue of number of events raced,
with Denise Kemp, Hannah Shean and Hayley Hawes looking good for the
final podium places.
The Handicap competition is being led by Jamie Maidment and Dave
Pennington; it is interesting to see the how the aero-riders score badly
on handicap in the non-aero event, but this anomaly is lost once the
riders hit their 11th event.
Kevin Harwood leads the Vets competition but Mike Hennessy, Phil Warner
& Dan Jenkins, all with one less appearance so far, look well set.
James Jenkins is looking unbeatable in the Junior section but Jordan
Kemp, Hannah Kane and Hannah Shean are battling for the podium places.
The Juvenile competition looks like it will be a battle between Jack
Evans, Aaron Westwood and Alex Sinclair.
