Tuesday 27th July 2004 - Course E14/10

Well the Twilight Trophy is coming down to a nail biting finish with just 2 weeks to go. On a warm still evening, Mark Edmonds was the quickest with 23.46 (and the year's fastest) however as he has missed a number of events he has no chance of the overall.
Andy Ballentyne was back on his track bike this week and although on a slightly lower gear, did his fastest ride of the series so far for 2nd place. This however moves him to the top of the table above Paul Martin who was fourth (24.44) on the night behind Julia Freeman who equalled her Mum's Vets 40-50 record with 24.20. Chris Burley's 5th place was his worst result position wise although his time was still a respectable 25.51.

Club 10

Tuesday 20th July 2004 - Course E14/10

Everone seemed to improve except Andy Ballentyne who after a run of good results dropped down to 5th - 1 1/4 minutes back on the previous week. This he put down to being tired from the weekend's exertions (i.e. too much beer on Sunday celebrating his 40th birthday!) and also switching to his TT bike from his favoured track bike after the rain earlier in the evening. Mark Edmonds appears to have recovered from his Ironman efforts and went inside 24 minutes for the win which is also the year's fastest in the club so far.
There are now 4 riders within 8 points of each other in the Twilight Trophy with Paul still leading. With 12 events out of the 15 now gone, riders will start to drop their worst results. Each of the leading four riders have all missed two events so these are the events they will drop first.

Saturday 3rd July - Course E1/10 (Wendons Ambo)

Club Evening 10

Tuesday 29th June 2004 - Course E14/10

Andy Ballentyne scored his first win for many years with 24.22 - 25 seconds ahead of Julia Freeman who was 1 second quicker than Paul Martin. Chris Burley was a further 10 seconds back whilst Richard slowed to an uncustomary 29.12 due to back trouble. Brian improved nearly a minute to record 33.07.
Mark Edmonds is resting up ahead of next week's Ironman triathlon in Austria for which we wish him good luck.
Trevor Walters from the Chelmer CC came to a 'recce' on the course for next week's Interclub event.
This means that Paul stays in the lead in the Twilight Trophy but there are only 4 points separating the next 3 riders - Chris, Julia and Andy.

Mark Edmonds scored another win in the year's fastest 10 so far with 24.07 despite riding a '100' at the weekend. He was only 2 seconds up on Andy Ballentyne after the first lap but pulled out another 28 seconds on the second lap. Andy's time on fixed was his fastest for several years and moved him up to 3rd in the Twilight Trophy ahead of Julia Freeman who was on holiday. Ian Morgan made his series debut two seconds ahead of series leader Chris Burley who in turn was 4 seconds quicker than Paul Martin.
This is shaping up into a fascinating 10 series with the lead changing often and it will be interesting to see the position when the riders start dropping their worst results with only 12 out of the 15 events to count.

Maldon and District CC 50m Time Trial

With Chris Burley and Linda away in Germany, Andy Ballentyne not riding due to a cold, Paul Martin working late and Richard stocking up on his booze in France, Julia moves to the top of the table in the Twilight Trophies.

Rudy Project Circuit Time Trial Series

Saturday 27th March 2004 - Stetchworth on the E2/25b (organised by the Cambridge T & C)

Former National 10 mile Champion Julia Freeman competed in the first event of this years series and came home as 5th placed Lady and 2nd Veteran with a time of 1-5-35 behind winner Julia Shaw in 1-3-39.
Reigning 50 mile champion Micheal Hutchinson was 4 minutes clear in the Men's event with a '51.

Club 25 (32nd Assoc.)

Sunday 14th March 2004 - Course E1

A very strong wind put paid to any hopes of fast times in the first 32nd Association 25 of the year. The winner was Keith Andrewartha (Shaftesbury CC) who had been hoping for a '55 but had to settle for 1.1.45.
Three Easterley members braved the conditions to record some very old fashioned times with Chris Burley being the fastest to take an early lead in the Club Events Points Championship.
Meanwhile Andy Ballentyne was riding the Ed Taylor Memorial Road Race at Great Thurlow but didn't manage to finish. Dave Spencer had entered the Jock Wadley Road Race at Birch but didn't start due to a heavy cold.

Triathlete Mark Edmonds in training for the London Marathon came 10th in the Brentwood Half Marathon in a very respectable 1-17-24, just 3 minutes down on the winner.

Club Hilly 20

Sunday 29th Feb 2004 - Course E17/20

A very cold morning saw a hardy group of members stretching their legs for the first club event of the year - two laps of the tough Toot Hill circuit that includes the climbs (dare I say mountains? - well it felt like it anyway!) of Toot Hill and Theydon Mount. Anyway the Toot Hill Mountain Rescue Unit was not required as the snow that forced the cancellation of the North Road Hardriders event in nearby Hertfordshire held off although oxygen would have been appreciated at the top of each climb, not because of the altitude but the cold air deep inside the riders lungs. Dave Spencer showed the effect of losing nearly 3 stone to get back to his old racing weight and powered round the course in 57.33, 8 seconds ahead of Chris.
