Rankings after 8 races and last race

The rankings have been updated to include the latest two rounds at the Guildford Town Crits and Hog Hill. 

Maryka Sennema (Kingston Wheelers) heads the table as we head towards our final round. Clare Gillot (Les Filles RT) is in second place with Michelle Sellars (London Phoenix CC) in third. However, only two points behind is Mhairi Mackenzie, also of London Phoenix CC so the final race could see a battle for third. 

London Phoenix CC heads the team rankings with Les Filles RT in second place and Kingston Wheelers in third place. 

The last race will be at the Lee Valley Velopark on Wednesday 20th August at 7.30pm. Entry on the line is available but the organisers strongly advise entering online prior to the event if you can. You can enter online here.

Remember that to qualify top 20 prizes you need to have to done 5 races.

LWCR 2014 - a very overdue update

Sincere apologies to all riders for the lack of an update on either News or Rankings.

The rankings have now been updated up to Round 4. John Mullineaux is currently dealing with queries from last week's Crystal Palace race so they will shortly be updated to include Round 5.

Unfortunately the original Round 5 race was cancelled so we are investigating possibilities for alternative races and will let you know as soon as we have decided on one. 

A reminder that next week's Crystal Palace race is jointly marshalled by LWCR.

Volunteers from affiliated teams or individual affiliates will be awarded points for marshalling which will be count as a counting 'race'. Marshalling points will be worked out at the end of the season as an average of your best 3 results from league events.

Marshalls will be needed from 6pm on the day and should be done by 9pm at the latest.

Tabitha Rendall will be co-ordinating marshalls so please let her know if you can help on the day by contacting us on

Details can be found here.

The race is part of a Wednesday evening series for which an affiliation fee normally has to be paid. The organiser has very kindly agreed to waive the affiliation fee for LWCR riders tomorrow. 

If you wish to take part in other races in the Hillingdon series, you will need to pay the affiliation fees. 

Affiliation to the LWCR league is still open so please feel free to encourage women from other clubs to join.

LWCR 2014 - Race season starts again

The LWCR 2014 league is about to kick off following on from another successful year for the league in 2013.

2014 sees much more noise being made on the women's race scene with the advent of the Women's Eastern Racing League and the South East Women's Time Trial Series, two new women's leagues for 2014. Surrey League is hosting a series of Cat 3 and 4 races for women only at Dunsfold Park as well as a three day stage race in August. Many other organisers are doing their best to run women only events where possible. Meanwhile for those who do well in leagues like the LWCR, the Women's Team Series and the British Cycling Women's Road Series continue to grow apace.

Hopefully all this activity will see new riders coming onto the racing scene and we will continue to see growth in women's racing for years to come.

The LWCR 2014 league opener is the Eagle Road Club hosted race at Hog Hill on Saturday 29th March. The season opener is always well attended and is a great opportunity to blow any winter cobwebs away. 

It is taking a bit longer than expected to finalise the whole calendar for 2014 but we will list the final calendar before the first race so that you can plan your season. 

As with last year there will be a requirement to participate in a certain number of races to qualify for a prize at the end of the season. This will be announced once we know how many races there will be. There will also be points for volunteers who help to marshall at Crystal Palace on 24th June when LWCR will be on marshalling duty.

Here's to another great season of racing...
