Hippy’s great ride in the White Horse Challenge.

Posted in News, Results on April 29th, 2008 by admin

The White Horse Challenge cyclo-sportif (competitive, long distance bike ride but not a race!) was held last Sunday 27th April in Wiltshire.

 Rollapaluza CC rider “Hippy” rolled in 33rd out of 550 starters! in a time of 4:43:45.  less than 18 mins behind the “winner” and miles ahead of 90% of the field, only 390 managed to finish this tough 150k event.

 Well done Stuart.

2nd win for Rollapaluza this week!

What a great night, good to see so many new and experienced rolla-fans!

Rollapaluza CC was well represented, not only in the official Rollapaluza team but also we had club members guest riding for various other teams too….we even had a winner in Janky James! a classic victory in the “have a go” open competition, making it look very easy and painless. Read more »

Four of us turned up today for a quick spin in Essex and the Epping Forest, finishing in plenty of time to get back to watch the Paris Roubaix on telly.  36 miles covered in 2 1/2 hours including the tea stop below…so a very modest pace.

Our first appearance at a road race resulted in our first podium finish, London’s super courier Jos get’s a second place today at Chertsey and from what I hear if he hadn’t run out of road he would’ve got first….well done mate!

Dazzler got a creditable 14th out of 70 entrants in the 4th Cat race, so agood start for him too.
