The 25 Mile Championship

Published by National Chairman on 23rd Aug 2016

The last of the Association's Championships took place on a course near Alcester in Warwickshire on the 21 August.

It was promoted ostensibly by the National Committee but its success was down wholly to the work of the Midlands Group under the guiding hand of ex-president Alan Colburn.

Brian Sunter was a clear winner on a windy morning although the threatened rain did not materialise. Brian, a previous champion at 30 miles 100 miles and 50 miles (six times) was delighted to record a gold medal at this popular distance.

David Hargreaves from North Lancashire proved the trip was worthwhile with second, whilst local rider, Philip Brown, took the bronze.

Liz Powell, also a local, was a clear winner from the women with Alison Vessey, a medal winner in every Championship this year, gaining another silver medal. Sarah Soden, from Nottingham was third.

The team prize went to the Yorkshire trio of Brian Sunter, Blair Buss and Tony Stott.

In the accompanying tandem event, Murray Kirton played the part of stoker to Mick Ives to win by a small margin from the other pairing of Nikki Hunt and Brian Foran.

A large number of excellent photographs taken by Brian Hall may be seen on his Facebook page.

The 50 Mile Championship

Published by National Chairman on 23rd Aug 2016

Kevin Tye took the gold medal for 50 Mile Champion in the event held on the H50/8 in Hampshire on Sunday 14 August. It was a good morning and Kevin’s plus of 38:28 gave him a 50 second victory over multi champion Brian Sunter. In third was another famous name – Terry Icke. Terry is recovering from a set-back but was in fine form on the morning.

Sarah Wheeler from West Group took the winner’s medal from the two Hounslow women, Jill Bartlett and Joanna Wells who were second and third respectively.

Terry Icke led the winning Wessex Group Team whilst the tandem event was won by Nikki Hunt and Brian Foran.

As with all the shorter distance championships (10, 25, 30 and 50 miles), promotion was in the hands of the National Committee with the vital and precious support of the local Group, in this instance London and Home Counties.
