Words from our president Ken Broad
Might I congratulate everone on the successful conclusion of our Round Shropshire Relay Ride - organisers, planners, riders, drivers Malc, John & Phil, ticket-sellers ("guesstimate-collectors"), in fact, everyone in the club who has contributed to this memorable event. Particular mention must be given to Jacko for all his unstinting hard work on the course-setting, both indoor and out on the roads around the county; for Si for burning the midnight oil and going hairless to ensure everything fell in to place seamlessly on the day; for Quinny for his customary hospitality and post-ride nosh on Saturday night, Jean for collating the guesstimate times; and for all the other unsung heroes who rose to the occasion, before, during and after the event...especially those on the first leg who coaxed me up all those dreadful hills - many of them over 1 in 20!!!
The winning time, as many of you already know, was 13hours 48 minutes and 42 seconds, a little more than many of the more optimistic predictions, which had possibly taken account of all those dreadful climbs between Ludlow and Bridgnorth, but not on the rapid nightfall. With the West Mercia Constabulary out in force around Newport last night, my particular worry was the paucity of lighting among all those stalwarts on the last leg and particularly those hardy "full-170-milers" accompanying them. But I needn't have worried; on my second anxious look-out trip up Lilleshall Hall Drive I was met by an array of red and white lighting speeding down, which any innocent spectator could have mistaken for farmers out on a nocturnal badger-cull. A great finish to a wonderfully memorable day! Thanks to everyone concerned; we really are a unique cycling-club!

NOVA RAIDERS Scott Harris, Ed Middleton, Paul Grubert and Mark Harrison.
07 July 2013 at the Nottingham National Water sports Centre to complete a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run in an unexpected heat wave.

Ed 13 hours 22
Mark 14 hours 26 mins
Paul grubert completed the marathon in a great time as well
Scott Harris said “the heat was a major factor out there we knew it was going to be hot, but we have trained for over a year for this, hydration and nutrition played a major factor on the day, Great results again for the raiders”.
Mark Harrison said” it was never going to be easy running a marathon in 31 degree heat but with the raiders support around the course made it more bearable”.
6am start the swim takes place in the regatta lake, followed by the bike section on the roads around Nottingham which offered great surfaces for fast riding and finally the run course around the lake and on to the River Trent path to Trent Bridge and County Hall. The multi-lap course was lined with thousands of spectators and will be on channel 4 on August 25th at 7am.
