Cape Town Club News – 3 March

CAPE TOWN CLUB INFO     

 

Race Report:

The final race of the 2014 Summer League was held on Sunday which consisted of a Criterium event around the Cape Tech. A criterium is lap style racing consisting of anything from 60-90min at a time. Luckily for us this event was only 60min + 1 lap. The route wound up Tennant street climb then turned left up another drag and down onto the main road and repeat, the repeat part ended up being 17 times and hard was an understatement due to the short duration of the event and the 60km/h wind that was blowing.

 

With the team competition all wrapped up for the team our plan and goal was to get Neil Bradford into the winner’s jersey by the end. It was a long shot but if the planets were aligned we could do it. Our plan was to get Tim and Luke to do the work for the 1st half of the race and get rid of most of the bunch in order to have a small select group of about 7 riders at the end while Pete and John being the climbers on the team their job was to look after Neil and help him get around safely until he could unleash that mighty sprint of his that has been in hibernation all season.

 

The plan worked perfect until about lap 4, John was blown off on lap 3 but somehow managed to crawl his way back to the front bunch which was about 12 by lap 4. Another lap or 2 later Luke and Tim put the white flag up and that left John, Pete and Neil which is sort of the plan coming into place but by pure fluke. The group of select riders worked well with individual riders falling off the group due to the intensity of the race each lap and with about 20min to go there was a select group of 7 riders with Neil, John and Pete present. Pete worked like a champion on the front while John protected Neil until everything fell apart in a crumbling mess. By that we mean Neil’s front wheel was caught in a huge gust of wind and he crash at about 50km/h. Pete was caught behind the crash as the group was disorganised which left John upfront alone with another 5 riders with 3 laps to.

 

With lots of attacks and counter attacks in the last 4 laps it came down to 2 riders getting a small gap on 4 of the riders and John came home in 5th, Pete 8th, Luke 13th and Tim 20th.

 

Neil got a free trip from the top of the course in an ambulance after having his shoulder pop out and back in again.

 

The Team has had a great season, being very present in races while being consistent in their results at races which have given the team having all 5 riders in the top 10 on overall classification and taking the team competition.

CAPE TOWN CLUB INFO     

Race Team results:

This past Sunday morning the hill climb time trial leg of the Spring League season took place. The course started near the bottom of Kloof rd. (The Glen) and finished just before the lookout point on Signal Hill drive. It was 5.4km long with an altitude gain of about 310m.

The CycleLab Supercycling team was represented by a full team excluding the captain, Tim Osrin, who had a bit of scratchy throat and wanted to save himself to make sure he dominates at the next race.

A few riders were missing from the start line as they were competing at SA Champs in Durban, most notably JP Jacobs who would have been a favourite for this event. The team’s goals were to place as many riders in the top 10 as possible and to smother the other 2 teams out of the team classification.

Riders were set off at roughly 30second intervals to enjoy their time in the pain cave. All four team riders had similar rides in that they all rode very strongly up the first part of the course up the Glen which is all uphill, but struggled and lost some time on the Signal Hill section, which consisted of an initial steep ramp that carries on past the Lions Head parking lot, a fast flat section requiring a lot of power, and finishes on a long steady uphill drag up to line that just kills the legs.

At the end of the day the winner was Sakkie Hanekom in a time of 13;20, followed by Andrew Payne in 13;24 and our CycleLab Supercycling rider Pete Calitz claiming the 3rd spot on the podium in a time of 13;37.

Provisional results place our other team riders in the top 10 with John Wakefield and Neil Bradford in positions 6 & 7, and our breakaway specialist Luke Hardiman putting in a great ride for a possible 10th place.

With two races remaining the team is very well positioned in the lead of the team classification, as well as individual riders John, Neil and Luke with chances to get on the overall GC podium.

Cycle Lab:

The Club’s brand new Youth and Junior racing team kicked off last weekend with Ben Fish riding for Cycle Lab Tokai in the Elite category of the 99er Cycle Race.  Ben managed to stay with the lead bunch for ninety kilometres until he was brought down by another rider on the section of gravel road just before Vissershok.  Ben nevertheless managed to get back on the bike and finished six minutes behind the winner of the Elite category even though he is still a Youth category rider (official results not yet available).

African XCO 2014CAPE TOWN CLUB INFO     

Race Team – race report: African Continental Mountain Bike XCO Champs (MTB Cross country)

This weekend saw the cape play host to the African Continental Mountain Bike XCO Champs, this Olympic discipline of the sport played out on slopes of the Willowbridge shopping Centre in Tygervalley on the now infamous “slammer” track. The 4.5km course was filled with jumps, drop offs, gaps jumps, doubles and sweeping berms with 106m of climbing per lap. As a UCI sanctioned event each age group had their own start group, and this weekend saw 2 Supercycling Cyclelab riders, Neil Bradford and Tim Osrin competing in the Vets 40-44 category.

5 Laps faced the Vets riders expecting to ride for between 1.05hrs and 1.15hrs in what turned out to be dry and hot conditions. A Group of approximately 15 Vet category riders set off together with the Sub Vets and Masters in a furious first lap as riders jostled for position. Bradford settled in 2nd place behind Nico Phitzenmier who was racing in the sub vet category and was no threat to Bradford’s African title on the day, he maintained his position throughout the race stomping home a clear 5 minutes ahead of Tim Osrin who fought through the heat and a minor spill on the 3rd lap to take 2nd place in the category.   

Cycle Lab gets a second at Oak Valley 24hr 2014

Cycle Lab Tokai entered a mountain bike team for the 24 Hours of Oak Valley in Grabouw last weekend comprising five Club members, two shop employees, and one visitor, and managed an excellent second place in the eight member team category.  Although this was named the “fun” category, this was in fact the biggest category and the Cycle Lab team would have placed fourth or fifth in the racing team category. 

The Cycle Lab team, which included two ladies, managed 37 laps, and was only beaten by three laps by a team comprising only men.  The team captain was Adéle Bellairs, and the rest of the team was made up of Nicholas Davies, Grant Farriman, Justin Robinson, Bevin Hendriks, Brandon Knowlden, and Adéle’s sister Mene Olivier, and experienced Epic survivor.  The team’s strength was the consistency of their lap times, and the stronger team members were able to rattle off almost identical laps from start to finish with Brandon, Bevan and Nicolas staying between 32 and 35 minutes almost to the end, and Mene and Adéle getting very close to the men’s times despite Adéle taking an unscheduled dismount in the dark hours when her front tyre unseated over an obstacle.

What is also impressive is that our team included one novice and one roadie who both did extremely well on a course that started out with almost six kilometres of tough climbing followed by some very quick downhill with some nice technical sections.  According to Adéle, the team heroes were Bevin and Brandon from the Shop who managed to average a lap in 32 minutes, and Nic who was consistent between 33 and 35 minutes for all his laps, but according to the team members and manager Neil Fourie, the hero is Adéle who organised everything and everyone, dealt with numerous withdrawals and replacements, registered everyone, set up the camp site, put up gazebos and tents, wrote down the times, had a fall and got patched up, and then dismantled everything with some help from Bevin, Brandon and son Christopher, and packed it up, so thanks Adéle!

Cape Town Club News – 27 January

 race team

 

CAPE TOWN CLUB INFO     

 

Race Team – race report:

 

The Tour de PPA, second race of the Summer League series kicked off from Durbanville Race Course at 6am on Sunday the 19th of January. A rolling 111km of racing lay ahead as Cycle Lab’s Cat 2 team of 5 riders rolled out of the start. 

 

With the steep climb of Vissershok looming around kilometre 15, there were a few early digs as riders tried to get ahead of the pack to make their way over clear of any attacking action in the bunch. Luke Hardiman from Cyclelab put in an early attack, but was quickly chased down. About 5km in, Neville Cragg from Aurecon went hard off the top of a little roller and succeeded in soloing off the front.

At this point Nev was left to his own devices and the race began to settle into a tempo as riders prepared themselves for the Vissershok ascent. The 3km climb rolls up gradually before kicking up steeply to about nine or ten percent for the final 1500m or so. At first the pace was civilised, but as the gradient became more severe John Wakefield and Pete Calitz from Cyclelab hit the front and the bunch was shattered with a decent sized split forming by summit. The Cyclelab riders were all able to crest the climb in the front half of the split.

Clear of the top, a chase was organised in order to bring back Neville Cragg, again with Cyclelab initiating the hard tempo and working through-and-off with a few other riders to reign him in. Once sighted and at a manageable distance, the team sat up and left him out in the wind for a bit of a TT training session. With little in the way of racing going on, the peloton came together again, with the back half of the Vissers split able to rejoin the front bunch.

With Cyclelab no longer on the front and Aurecon not working due to Nev being up the road, the racing all but ceased as the tempo nosedived to 35km/h or less. Complete Cyclist sat on the front but did not do much in the way of chasing or pacemaking. This went on for roughly 30km, with Andrew Payne of John o’ Connor Cycles attacking off the front to keep Neville company around kilometre 50 – a gutsy move for someone who had done a sub-6 Attakwas the day before. The two of them worked well together and their gap slowly began stretching out into quite a big lead.

About 65km in, the Cyclelab boys realised something needed to be done, and began putting in attacks and counter-attacks in an attempt to break from the slow-moving bunch. Complete Cyclist and a few others were vigilant in chasing several attacks and counters down, until eventually at kilometre 78, Luke Hardiman put in a big effort from halfway down the bunch and succeeded in making a solo move off the front.

With Neville and Andrew near enough 2km down the road, Luke now had his work cut out for him, in no-mans land, racing alone into a slight headwind, with a bunch of 50 riders behind him. A solid 20km effort later, with the landscape trending upwards towards the finish, he was able to join up with the break of two with about 12km left to race.

All three escapees were severely depleted at this point, with Neville having been away for close to 100km, and Andrew beginning to really feel the effects of the Attakwas Kloof in his legs from the day before. At first there were some tactical issues to resolve, what with Nev’s teammate JP Jacobs leading the GC, but eventually the riders agreed to work together and were able to cross the line about 20 seconds clear of the chasers. Neville Cragg (Aurecon) took the win, with Luke Hardiman (Cyclelab) in second, closely followed by Andrew Payne (John o’ Connor Cycles).

Back in the bunch the race for fourth ensued, with John Wakefield from Cyclelab again deploying his climbing pins with a dig on the last big roller at 5km to go. He went clear with two other riders, with series leader JP Jacobs (Aurecon) unable to join them. This trio made it to the line by a slim margin of ten seconds or so, with John coming home 6th, and Neil Bradford and Tim Osrin rounding out the top ten for Cyclelab in the bunch sprint behind.

 

All-in-all a solid day out, with big Team Competition and GC points for Cyclelab to reward their efforts animating the racing.

NB: ClUB KIT MUST BE WORN for all club rides!

 

Know the rules of the trails.

Ride open trials: Respect trail and road closures-ask a land manager for clarification if uncertain about the status of the trail. Do not trespass on private land. Obtain permits or other authorisation as required.

Leave no trace: Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you. Wet and muddy trails are more vulnerable to damage than dry ones. When the trail is soft, consider other riding options. This also means staying on existing trails and not creating new ones. Do not cut switchbacks.

Control your bicycle: Inattention for even a moment could put yourself and others at risk. Obey all bicycle regulations and recommendations and ride within your limits.

Yield appropriately: Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you’re coming – a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods. Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. Mountain bikers should yield to other non-motorised trail users, unless the trail is clearly signed for bike- only travel. Mountain bikers travelling downhill should yield to ones headed uphill, unless the trail is clearly signed for one-way or downhill only traffic. In general, strive to make each pass a safe and courteous one.

Never scare animals: Animals are easily startled by an unannounced approach, a sudden movement or a loud noise. Give animals enough room and time to adjust to you. When passing horses use special care and follow directions from the horseback rider (ask if uncertain)

Plan ahead: Know your equipment, your ability and the area in which you are riding and prepare accordingly.

Strive to be self-sufficient: Keep your equipment in good repair and carry necessary supplies for changes in weather or other conditions. Always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear.

Know the rules of the trails.

Ride open trials: Respect trail and road closures-ask a land manager for clarification if uncertain about the status of the trail. Do not trespass on private land. Obtain permits or other authorisation as required.

Leave no trace: Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you. Wet and muddy trails are more vulnerable to damage than dry ones. When the trail is soft, consider other riding options. This also means staying on existing trails and not creating new ones. Do not cut switchbacks.

Control your bicycle: Inattention for even a moment could put yourself and others at risk. Obey all bicycle regulations and recommendations and ride within your limits.

Yield appropriately: Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you’re coming – a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods. Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. Mountain bikers should yield to other non-motorised trail users, unless the trail is clearly signed for bike- only travel. Mountain bikers travelling downhill should yield to ones headed uphill, unless the trail is clearly signed for one-way or downhill only traffic. In general, strive to make each pass a safe and courteous one.

Never scare animals: Animals are easily startled by an unannounced approach, a sudden movement or a loud noise. Give animals enough room and time to adjust to you. When passing horses use special care and follow directions from the horseback rider (ask if uncertain)

Plan ahead: Know your equipment, your ability and the area in which you are riding and prepare accordingly.

Strive to be self-sufficient: Keep your equipment in good repair and carry necessary supplies for changes in weather or other conditions. Always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear.
