The season long SpoCo competition has been beset with problems all season due to the pandemic causing numerous postponements and cancellations and at the last the premier event, the Circuit of the Dales was cancelled for roadworks, a real blow. However, we have a competition where many riders completed the required 5 qualification rides but due to the number of cancellations we decided that riders with more than 3 rides also counted for the prizes.
And the winners are:
Men’s Champion Jonny Hill, Barrow Central Wheelers
Women’s Champion Debbie Moss, Team Merlin
Team Champions Kent Valley RC (Andrew Barlow, Richard Belk, Phil Shaw)
Junior Men’s Champion Joseph Allanson, Bury Clarion CC
V40 Men’s Champion Neil Withington, Beacon Wheelers
V40 Women’s Champion Joanna Cebrat, Bury Clarion CC

NLTTA Boxing Day ’10’ on the L101 course. Signing on from 9.45am on the South side of Cockerham Road. First rider off at 10.31am. Maximum of 60 riders. First come, first served. This is a ‘come and try’ event. £4 seniors and £2 juniors.
An excellent 2014 showed the future is bright for the NLTTA. Two massive fields in the combined clubs events, strong support for the inaugural points competition and increased member club affiliation all indicate we are heading in the right direction. But the job is by no means finished, the Association still needs plenty of assistance with promotions and support, so that in future we can consider the promotion of the flagship longer events missing from the calendar.
I wish you all the best of luck for 2015 and ride safely.
