Round 2 - Wednesday 16th April at Hillingdon

Round 2 of the LWCR 2014 league will take place tomorrow at Hillingdon, hosted by Twickenham CC and West Thames Promotions. The race starts at 6.45pm. 

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...

It's a wrap

The final race for the league for 2013 took place on Sunday 1st September with a second visit to Cyclopark, where SERRL were running one of their monthly women's races.

After a number of fast laps the race split into a lead group, a chase group and then a number of riders in ones and twos. 

With the pace high, no-one was able to break the elastic and the race came down to a sprint won by Nicola Juniper (Les Filles RT). Natalie Creswich (Mule Bar Girls) took second with Maryka Sennema (Kingston Wheelers) taking third to seal second place in the final rankings for the 2013 league. Alexie Shaw (Les Filles RT) took 6th, having already done enough in previous rounds to secure first place overall for 2013.

Sometime later the second group came in with Helen Ralson (Les Filles RT) claiming 7th, which was enough to give her third place in the overall rankings. 

Les Filles RT, who have dominated all season, took first place in the team rankings with London Phoenix taking second, and Kingston Wheelers third. A special mention must go to both the Goscomb-BSR team, which was only formed this year with riders new to racing and came fourth overall, and the VC Norwich team, which also had several riders racing for the first time this year who have travelled far and wide to compete in and support the league and came sixth overall. 

Full results for the race can be seen on the UK Cyclesport website. 

Final rankings are given below for both individuals and teams. Please note that some riders have now been awarded volunteering points for marshalling at the LWCR hosted Crystal Palace crit and any tied rankings (where riders have competed in more than one race) have been adjusted so that the rider with the highest placing in any one race is ranked higher. If you have any queries regarding the rankings, please feel free to contact us at hello@londonwomenscycleracing.com

Only 17 riders rode in seven or more races enabling them to qualify for the top 20 prizes. These riders are listed at the bottom of this news item. Our awards ceremony will take place on Friday 11th October at the Look Mum No Hands! cafe from 7pm. Other prizes (which are not dependent on the number of races ridden) will be awarded and it will be a fun way to finish off a great season so please come along if you can. Further details will be posted closer to the time.
