This year has been full of amazing individual performances and achievements by club members that you will have seen on these pages. This week we saw something amazing from someone who started out their cycling in the Rascals, racing in club colours and then moved on to coaching in the Rascals and elsewhere. He has been named UK Sport Young Coach of the Year. Well done Andy Pink

UCI World Cycling Tour Finals - a report PDF Print E-mail

Many thanks to club member Anthony Roberts for this report from his recent experience at the UCI World Cycling Tour Finals in Aalborg, Denmark. Hopefully we will have some more reports from other members soon. If you've been on a cycling adventure let us know about it...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Closed road sportives or races are rare so when the first Tour of Cambridgeshire was announced I signed up quickly. This was before knowing the event was a qualifier for the UCI World Tour event in Denmark. On June 7th 2015 I travelled up from Guildford and met a couple of friends from London Phoenix Cycling Club, the 136km course was flat as a pancake. Flat and fast. Gaining less than 700m of climbing across the course the speeds remained high averaging at 36kph for the duration. Qualification turned out to be fairly relaxed, with the top 25% of riders in each age group qualifying for the Denmark race.

Having received confirmation of my qualification, I and a friend decided to make the trip to Denmark, for experience and fun if nothing else. Aalborg is not the easiest destination in the world to get to, with most flights requiring a rather frustrating changeover at Copenhagen. Considering almost 2,000 cyclists were travelling to a small, remote town in Northern Denmark, the logistics weren't planned greatly by the organisers with very limited spaces for bikes on planes. Luckily a logistics firm stepped in and provided a transit for bike boxes at a very affordable rate, removing most stress of carrying around bike boxes or the airlines losing them!

Having arrived safely, we were greeted in Aalborg by a huge thunderstorm on the Saturday, pre-race day. A group of about 20 random riders met at 10am and headed out for a short scout of the course, this was quickly ended by giant hailstones, thunder lightening and punctures. Not ideal preparation for the race...
The pre-race meeting was in Aalborg town hall, we were briefed on all rules, doping measures, rolling feed stops, neutralised start procedures, all very formal. Denmark clearly has a relaxing way of life with all shops shutting at 1pm on Saturdays and not opening at all on Sundays, even bike shops with 2,000 potentially desperate customers.
