Mountbatten Circuit Races - Sunday 9th March
from Graham Robins

Note: A serious crash in the Elite event saw PC Richard Phillips-Schofield, 33, lose his life. Details here -  Our thoughts with his family and friends. A tragic loss.


The women’s race was a 50minute + 3 lap race around the Mountbatten track on the south coast in Portsmouth. The excellent weather brought out a very good entry of 29 riders.

Once the race got under way the first couple of laps were run at a sedate pace and then eventual winner Jo Tindley (Matrix-Vulpine) started to stretch her legs and soon built up a lead approaching ten seconds. She was soon joined by Tracy Corbett (London Dynamo), but as Jo pushed on Bonnie van Wilgenberg (Zappi’s Racing Team) started to go across to them and Tracy went the other way back to the bunch.

Tindley all alone on the front eased up and allowed the bunch back, but again she attacked, this time the gap grew quickly and as the bunch reacted it was Sian Cahill, Tracy Best along with Bonnie(Zappi’s Racing Team) who took up the chase. As Jo plugged away on the front Eva Barnes (VC St Raphael) joined the Zappi train.


Once again Jo decided to desist with the loan break eased up and was brought back to the bunch. The race then settled down at the half distance until once again Jo worked her way through the field, but his time Ruby Chappell (Behind the Bikeshed) clipped of with her but Jo’s pace soon saw Ruby dispatched backwards to the chasing bunch.

At the 30min mark Jo again slipped back to the safety of the bunch and remained there until the bell where upon she eased to the front and easily took the sprint for the win.


Third Cats
The third cat race was oversubscribed and there riders waiting around for spaces, but none of the reserves got in and were left to stand and watch the race.

The race gets underway with 10 minutes of ‘riding’ before Jed Webber (Andover Wheelers) and Steve Walking (VC St Raphael) are clear, they are joined by James Ebdon (Wightlink LCM Systems), Andrew Gough (PM) and George Stainton-Ellis (Team Dassi).


This group of five soon became nine as Thomas Goodyer (PNECC), George Moore (i-team CC), Harry Veale ( and Charlie Leech (Southampton Uni RC) all took turns and get across. The group worked well and soon built up a large gap of 20secs or about half a lap.

With just over ten minutes of racing left Steve Walking put his Time Trail experience to good use and built up a lead which he managed to hold onto the very last lap, in fact he held the lead to the line where he was beaten by a wheel length by Charlie Leech. Steve just didn’t have it on that last lap but they did have clear track back to third place George Stainton-Ellis.
