Unfortunately, I have to cancel the next round of the race series due to be held on Sunday 11th September.
Prior to agreeing the dates for the series we checked Norwich City fixture list to ensure there were no date clashes – the car park is used for parking on match days.
However, Sky TV are now televising the match originally planned for Saturday the 10th and have re-scheduled it to Sunday 11th. The car park will be in use from 10.30am and regrettably we have no option but to cancel our racing.
All subsequent dates – 25th September, 9th October and 23rd October – remain unchanged.
Apologies for this cancellation, I’m sure you will appreciate that it was entirely outside the control of myself and the organising clubs.

Cycling Club Breckland’s 10 mile time trial season came to a cracking end this week with a large field vying for the last points available and the title of win on Handicap.
The event was held on a revitalised course starting in Hingham with the riders flying down to the new Carbrooke Roundabout, turning and fighting the 5 miles back to the finish. Tom Fitzpatrick of Windy Milla made a guest appearance and won the event in a startling time of 22:37. Danny Watkins was first CCB rider in 24:08, followed by Declan Davis (24:14) and Matt Carter (24:22).
The handicap event was won by Mark Fairhead with a time of 17:10. SImon Atherton and Steve Jode filled the podium with handicap times of 17:22 and 17:27 respectively.
This weekend saw riders touching a staggering 40mph in the Anglia Velo 10. The prize for top speed and fastest time went to Nino Piccoli who’s max speed was an incredible 41.7mph and his time was 20:10. Chris Nudds was the fastest from CCB in a time of 22:39, followed by Danny Watkins (23:12) and Michael Wood (23:39). Other times came from Mark Fairhead (23:46) and Peter James (23:58).
Sorry to hear of Ray’s death, East Anglia will not be the same without Ray, it seemed that werever I was driving in Norfolk there was Ray, in any weather always in the same position on his bike and riding at the same speed. I think Ray only had one speed wether he was racing or just riding, however if you rode with him no matter how hard you were pushing he could always half wheel you!
Good luck up there Ray, show St Peter how to ride a bike!
Sadly I will be on holiday on the 5th Sept so I will be unable to attend Rays funeral, I hope he gets a good attendence from CCB.
Sad to announce the death of Ray Legg. He suffered a stroke over the weekend of the 20/ 21st August and died in Addenbrokes Hospital on the following Tuesday. He will be sorely missed in the Eastern Region where he was a feature at almost every event. His memory for historic details of events over the past decades was phenomenal.
It is on 5th September at 12-45 pm Risby Crem, and the wake will be at Risby Village Hall afterwards. His daughter requests for people to come in cycle clothing if they wish, and also if people coming in cars would like to park their cars at Risby Village Hall they could then cycle to Church about 2 miles away should they wish to.
