Two Countie RR Sunday 8th April 2012
Infrequent roadman David Watson (Coventry Road Club) showed his time trialling strength to ride to a clear victory in Wolverhampton Wheelers’ 50-
Hammond in turn attacked on the last lap to finish a clear second, with Dean Parkes (Team iOptix.ci.uk) opening up a small gap over the rest on the run to the line to secure third place.
The circuit, based on Bridgnorth, Shropshire, and dropping into the Severn Valley before climbing back out, will be used for next month’s regional championship.

Severn Valley Road Race incorporating the
West Midlands Regional Road Race
Sunday 20th May 2012
With the Road Racing season fast approaching The Wheelers have yet again thrown its hat into the ring in relation to Road Race promotion.
Our first event is the Two Counties Road Race on Sunday 8th April 2012 (Easter Sunday) on the `Rabbit Run` circuit based at Bridgnorth.
Again on the `Rabbit Run` circuit on Sunday May 20th 2012 we are promoting the West Midland Regional Road Races, two races, one for Junior and Lady competitors and the main race for Elite, 1st, 2nd & 3rd Cat riders where we should see most of the areas top riders pitching it against the regular club riders.
Over the coming weeks I will be `banging the drum ` to get volunteers to help and assist in the running of these races to the standard we have become accustomed to!!
I will no doubt get the regular volunteers to come forward but I would like to see other members of the club come forward and assist. For those members who have no experience or knowledge of road racing but would like to come out and have a look then give me a call. There is plenty to do on race day and I could probably find something for everyone.
Give me a call 01922 410834 or 07970 946921 or by reply by Email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Also on the agenda this year being driven by British Cycling is `Power to Stop`. This is an accreditation given to marshalls to stop traffic during cycle race events on the public highway. British Cycling are looking for volunteers for this and will be asked to support other events not just Wheelers events. If you want any further information on this either contact myself or email@example.com

RESULTS WEST MIDLANDS REGIONAL CHAMPS 22/5/11
A huge thanks, once more to all those volunteers who braved the windy conditions to make this race a success and to all the bakers for the wonderful supply of cakes. The Wheelers certainly know how to pull together to make a great team. Maybe some of the riders would like to add a "view from the saddle" race report.
Thanks to you all, Bea and Ian
