Message from Jim Cottier.....
Due to the Ellan Vannin C.C. having to cancel the Nick Corkill Road Race Champs today due to roadworks I had been asked by their Chairman, Richard Fletcher, that as The Manx Road Club are the only other club to hold a race in May, which is traditionally the month to hold any National R.R. Champs if we would be prepared to incorporate the Champs into The John Hamer Road Race on the 22nd of May. This club is only too happy to help out with this r...Read Full Post »

Nick Corkill memorial Tour of The North inc. the IoM Road Race Championships on 8 May is Cancelled. In Brandies own words:
I'm sorry to say that the above event has been cancelled as a result of major road works on the Andreas to Ramsey road that are due to continue until August at least. Something we only became aware of over the weekend. I am working on an alternative but, in any case, it will not happen on 8 May. I wi...Read Full Post »

There was a great turn out for today’s Island Games fundraising event.
73 riders contested the 25 mile team time trial in near perfect conditions.
Unusually for this type of event, all teams managed to finish - with some fast times! The dry, sunny weather with a light breeze probably accounted for this but please note that 'The Management' cannot guarantee these conditions for any future events!
The event was won by Robin Garr...Read Full Post »
