Thanks you very much to the time keepers Peter McGrath and Dave Clark without whom this event would not have been possible.  The district is very short on time keepers.
  Have you ever considered learning this skill? See any CTT district official or timekeeper if you are interested in learning.

Thank you to the volunteer marshals and helpers from Sunderland Clarion.  Your help was really appreciated.

Thank you very much to Beamish Museum for kindly allowing us to use their top car park as our event HQ.  Beamish is a unique place and we are lucky to have such an attraction on our doorstep.
  Why not pay a visit? Check out their web site http://www.beamish.org.uk/events/ to see the programme from now until Christmas. 
On Friday 26th, Saturday 27th, and Wednesday 31st October 2012, from 6.30pm - 9.30pm, Beamish will be overrun by spooky ghosts and terrifying monsters!

Sloan Trophy Road Race, Sunday 22 April

Sunderland Clarion’s Michael Sloanes secured a top ten finish on a wet day in Northumberland, in the Sloan Trophy. The race in and around Stamfordham, saw a full field of 60 riders, from 4th through to 2nd category. Joining Michael on the start line from the Clarion were Chris Barnard, Paul Cottrell, and Charlie Monchâtre. Going into the race Michael was looking to improve on last Sundays’ performance in the Phillip Russell Memorial Road Race, where he finished 16th.


The racing started fast and hard in miserable conditions, with the first 20 miles covered at a speed of around 26mph. As things started to settle a group of five riders disappeared up the road, today this break would stick, with those riders to fight it out for the win. A battle won by William Haynes (Blackhawkbikes.com), from Mark Perry (Dirtwheels Cycles) and James Alder (VC Briganti). Meanwhile in Michael’s group with a lap to go a group of 3 riders saw their chance and slipped away up the road. As the pace heated up on the rain soaked roads Michael kept his position, rather than putting in any extra effort, before the final uphill sprint. Michael launched his effort at the bottom of the hill, and was strong enough to hold the rest of the pack, apart from Richard Kipling (MTS Cyclesport). Michael finished tenth, but was the first 3rd category rider home.

The other Sunderland Clarion riders had a mixed bag of a day, Chris Barnard found himself distanced from Michael’s group on the first lap, but worked well in the third group on the road. Charlie also found himself off the back in the first lap. After the fourth lap a number of riders, including Charlie, called it quits after being soaked through with hailstones. Paul meanwhile must feel thoroughly deflated after having his race ruined for the second week running by a puncture. Paul will be hoping his luck returns next week at the Ballantyne Memorial Trophy, where a number of Sunderland Clarion riders will be hoping for good results.

Phillip Russell Memorial Road Race, Sunday 15th April

Three Sunderland Clarion riders took part in the Phillip Russell Memorial Trophy in Stokesley, Sunday 15th May. The 73 mile long race would be a real challenge, the longest race that any of the riders have raced. Michael Sloanes, Charlie Monchâtre and Chris Barnard took to the start line as part of a very strong field of 2nd, 3rd and 4th category riders.
Despite the length of the race it was all action from the start, with riders trying their best to get in the first group on the road. Once the dust had settled Chris and Michael found themselves in the fifth group on the road, while Charlie had found it too much and retired from the race. The duo then went to work getting further up the road. Michael managed to get into the second group on the road with a lot of hard work. In the meantime Chris found himself in the third group of the road, the sight of Michael a few hundred yards up the provided a target to reach, so Chris tried his best to get his group in contact with Michael groups. These efforts proved futile, and eventually cost him dearly as the energy expended cost him as the pace cranked up once again, and he lost contact. Meanwhile Michael was doing well amongst his group, with the numbers being reduced gradually as the race went along, so much so that there was only 6 riders in the group as they started the final lap. With a pack of 14 up the road there was little only one chance of getting points from the race, there was only points available to the first 15 riders. So with half a lap to go decided to conserve energy at the back of the group, this ploy almost paid off as with 150 yards to go he opened up his sprint, narrowly being beaten to 15th place by Alan Nixon (Blackhawk Bikes). At the front end of the race Mark Perry (Dirtwheels Cycles) beat Jordan Stokes (Pedal Power-Endura-Forme Racing) and

Beveridge fourth in big finish


Published on Thursday 22 March 2012 12:30

A BUSY weekend of racing saw Sunderland Clarion riders take to the start line on Saturday and Sunday.

The racing began with Round Three of the Highfield Kitchens Spring Shield at the Prissick Park circuit in Middlesbrough.

A strong six-man team took to the start of the 3/4 category race. The numbers paid off for the club, as the race (as is usually the way at Prissick) finished with the bunch together, with two Sunderland Clarion riders making the top 10.

Iain Beveridge narrowly missed out on a podium with fourth place, behind Matt Rossister (Durham University), Will Stavely (Ferryhill Wheelers) and Mike Rennison (Cleveland Wheelers).

Michael Sloanes was the second Clarion rider to make the top 10, finishing ninth.

Iain’s fourth place sees him standing ninth overall in the 3/4 category overall, with Michael lying just behind in 11th.

On Sunday, Michael – along with Charlie Monchâtre, Chris Wilson, Paul Cottrell, and Chris Barnard – competed in the first road race of the season, the Wansbeck CC Australian Pursuit, in which riders set off in three groups, with a time gap based on rankings.

The race in and around Longhirst, in Northumberland, saw Matt France also racing. He joined Paul, Charlie and Chris Wilson in the first group of riders to set off.

The six-lap race saw the groups trying to avoid being caught by the higher ranked riders and eventually, after three laps, the race joined together.

The pace picked up with riders soon falling off the back of the main field, with some riders opting to retire rather than continue chasing in vain, including Chris Wilson and Chris Barnard.

At the other end, an elite group formed at the front. Eventually two riders broke free, with the victory going to Tom Murray (IG-SigmaSport), who was third overall in last year’s national criterium series.

Dan Smith of Velo29 OTR-Vankru finished five seconds behind his breakaway companion in second, while Richard Kipling (MTS Cyclesport) came third, leading home the first large group of riders.

The first Clarion rider to finish was Michael Sloanes as part of a second large group of riders, one minute, 25 seconds later.

He was followed by Paul Cottrell and Charles Monchâtre, who finished four minutes behind Murray. Matt France came home a little later, the last man to finish.

This weekend sees Round Four of the Highfield Kitchens Spring Shield, with Beverdige and Sloanes no doubt keen to improve their overall rankings.

H Houghton CC’s senior race at Hetton Country Park on Saturday was won by Mike Bell (Fiesten Tempo), with Paul Errington (Hetton Hawks) winning the schoolboy time trial.

Results. Senior Race (21miles): 1. Mike Bell (Fiesten Tempo) 52mins 31secs, 2 Paul Whitehill (Infinity Cycles), 3 Andy Brennan (Unattached), 4 Eric Henderson (Houghton CC), 5 Colin Prested (Cestria CC), 6 Alan Pamler (Houghton CC).

Schoolboy time trial (3miles): 1 Paul Errington (Hetton Hawks) 9min 34sec, 2 Roshan Parker-Mian (Hetton Hawks) 11min 53 sec.

The races continue this Saturday and a week on Saturday, with the schoolboy time trial at 1pm and the main senior road race at 2pm.
