Roche crossed the line in an unbelievable 1.01.54 to claim the title from Elliot Baxter 1.05.03 who is putting his final preparations together for this months end 2 end. Third place went to Cav’s right hand man, Rob Dooley, back on the island during his rest week! In a creditable 1.07.22

The Junior Title went to rising star Josh Knights with a fantastic 1.09.57 whilst the veteran’s award went to Gianni Epifani in a slightly quicker time of 1.09.02.

Another star of the future and taking advantage of our early retiring island games ladies squad, Anna Christian circulated in 1.25.01 to become the Ladies National 25mtt Champion and earn herself a new dress for the annual dinner on November 5th.  The Juvenile victory went to Jamie Dudley in 1.15.05 also boding well for a successful jump into the junior ranks very shortly.

Bikestyle 10 League
Dear Competitor.

Due to circumstances which have come to light regarding the running of the lost week’s cycling in the series (Week 7) I was under the misunderstanding that I could just re-run the event in retrospect simply because it was part of the series.

Having spoken to the relevant authorities this is not the case, and the Police Cycling Authorisation applied for at the beginning of the season has expired.

This coupled with concerns about running a race during Manx Grand Prix practice week and looking at the long range weather forecast have prompted me to go back on my statement made at the C.A. Meeting of the 1st August.

Week 7, will not now be run this coming Wednesday, 24th August and looking at the racing calendar I cannot see an opportunity to run it at any time within the rest of the season.

Therefore I am upholding the decision made on the 15th June at the “10” League and I will be re-adjusting the system and that is to have the final results evaluated from the best 9 rounds from 14 so that it is fair to every competitor.

I am sorry to you all that we are unable to complete the series.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Yours sincerely,

Jim Cottier.

Commonwealth Youth Games Please Help!!

Hi All,


As you know I have been trying to handle the organisation of the CYG without involving those that normally spend far too much of their own time dedicated to cycling becoming embroiled.


However I'm afraid the time has now come !


Please find attached a summary of the people recruited to date and roles allocated. (Excel / PDF)


I am in urgent need of more experienced cyclists to act as marshals (what a surprise!) for Friday night and Saturday.


There are many people 'missing' from the volunteer list that owe the sport something back having 'taken' a lot over a long period and I expect them to come forward !


As such can I task each road Club to produce a further 8 marshals (24 in total) please ? This is the minimum requirement to enable to event to take place under the Risk Assessment. It would be helpful to have more! Mountain Bike and BMX members will be most welcome, it's just that this is a road event and as such I feel responsibility should fall to the road based clubs.


Please ask the 'volunteers' to complete the VAF form (Word / PDF) and submit to me along with a passport size photo. My address is 4 Birch Hill Gardens, Onchan, IM3 4ET.


I apologise for communicating in this tone but as you can tell I'm pretty hacked off with the response I've had. Feel free to convey my feelings to your Club membership.


There is an element of urgency required and I need the names, photos and forms by Friday 24th August.




Yours in sport.

Participants may start anytime between 0900 & 1030, although slower riders are advised to go off as close to 0900 as possible.

The courses are challenging, with over 1500m of ascent including the climbs of Druidale (& Slieau Whallian for the 100Km) and taking in many roads that are not typically used in local races. The organisers stress that a Sportive is not a race and that although participants will be timed over the various sections of the course, the rules of the road must be obeyed at all times.

Lighthouse Sportive

September 4 2011 sees the debut of the ‘Lighthouses Challenge’ sportive event supported by Microgaming. Following popular feedback from last year’s two Isle of Man sportives, the Appleby and Curragh Classic, the IOMCA’s performance group has decided to resurrect a classic ride from bygone years taking in the Island’s lighthouses (where possible!) and taking in most of the Island’s coastline.

The lighthouses challenge offers two course distances, 100 miles and 41 miles, and the opportunity to ride the longer event in a 3 or 4 rider team. The teams will be allowed to changeover at a point of their choice as long as it’s at one of the 6 checkpoints.

The course will take a clockwise route from Douglas with the short course finishing in Peel. The 100 mile course takes in over 1200 metres of climbing, which includes the climbs to Cregneash and the  Sloc, before taking  in the Northern plains and then the shorter climbs along the North East coast back into Douglas. The longer event will have 3 feed zones and the short version 1 feed zone. At each feed zone there will be a (limited) supply of energy food and drink.

The Lighthouses Challenge, along with the Appleby Sportive in early August, provides the perfect preparation in the run up to End 2 End Challenge which takes place on the 18th September.

All entries will be taken online, via or follow the link on any of the cycling club websites. All entrants, individual and team, will receive a t-shirt as well as the energy food and drink available at feed stations.

Varley takes handicap from Livsey
The 6 lap, 36 mile handicap event started off in cold, wet blustery conditions and consisted of six groups, with the last group setting off 9 minutes behind the first. Unfortunately the long markers were caught just after the start of lap two, and by the start of lap four, group six had caught the field, and were chasing down leaders Josh Knights & Rob Holden who had clipped off the front by 15 seconds. By lap five the leaders had been reeled in, and had been joined by the riders from group six, along with some others who had managed to jump onto the leading bunch as the field split due to the fast pace . By the time lap six started, the lead bunch was down to four, Darren Bell, Aaron Livsey, Christian Varley & Jake Kelly, as James Smettem & Josh Knights had dropped off the leading bunch slightly. The remaing riders lost further touch, and had been caught by the chasing pack, and were a further minute or so away.
The final dash to the line was between Varley and Livsey, with Christian outsprinting his TMT Team mate to win the race in a time of 1 hour 37 minutes, with a further nine seconds back, Jake Kelly, who had the beating of Darren Bell in the sprint for third place, James Smettem finished fifth, well clear of the chasing bunch, which arrived several minutes later. Robin Garry burst clear from the group to finsh a fine sixth, ahead of Nick Corlett, Scott Morgan, Nick Preskey & Floyd Wilson, and the first lady home, Mary Mason in eleventh.(Results)
