News – Full Field for Perfs Pedal


All go for Perfs pedal this weekend

According to an article on the website organiser Mick Waite is confident its all go for the Perfs pedal this weekend. After storms and heavy rain have battered the south this week, the organiser said to “I was out there on Sunday and then went out again on Tuesday after the storm and it is fine”.

“I have one pothole and one puddle to deal with, I think. There is a lot of grit around and there will be some puddles but it’s February and it has been raining a lot. They are all experienced riders, so they will know to use the proper wheels and tyres for this type of race. If you are putting your best racing tyres on, you might not get very far!”


VC St Raphael’s classic season opener, organised by club sponsor Mick Waite (pictured below), the Perfs Pedal, has a full field. The entry for the event will be headed up by the only former winner of the race, Brian Fleming of VC Lincoln who won the event in 1992 and 1996.


Course for the event is the one used for the last few years, the Portsdown Hill Circuit, which says Mick is okay at present but had added they have permission to move the race to Newtown/Hundred Acres if there is a problem.

The line-up for the Perfs Pedal will be published soon with the entries seeing nine elite riders, 23 first cats, 51 second category riders and two third category riders. The new UCI team, Pedal Heaven look to have the strongest team entered says Mick with six riders; Joe Fry, Mitch Webber, Alex Paton, Lloyd Chapman, Rory Townsend and Grant Ferguson.

Pedal Heaven will also have their Excel Academy team in the race with others including Cycleworks, Cycology Sunwise RT, HR Owen Maserati RT, Nunn Sigma Sport London RT, TBW Bottecchia Wigmore RT.
