The VTTA is the National body for time trialling for the over forties, administered through sixteen regional groups. The groups are managed by their own elected committees, each responsible for providing a programme of time trials, social events and help and support for riders.

Each group has their own competitions and records, and members can gain medals for achieving and improving on their standard plus for the various distances.

The VTTA is affiliated to the Cycling Time Trials (CTT) and governed by its regulations.

If you are interested in time trialling and live in the north midlands, please join us!

Bolsover & District CC 10, O10/5, Saturday 18th March

Steve Posted 14th March 2017

Another good event organised by Craig Devonshire (thanks Craig) - well marshalled and (amazingly) dry. As with last week, the O10/5 at Cuckney isn't a fast course but it produced some excellent rides by some new-on-the-scene-youngsters (both winners were under 23 - eek) and some almost as fast ones from the vets. Karen Ledger was beaten into 2nd place by Loughborough Uni's Anna Morris but achieved a new Rutland women's 10 record, not bad going on such a slow course. I'm sure it will be lowered very soon! New member Steve Gibson (Peak RC) was highest placed North Mids vet with 21.06 (right), with Darryl Wall a few places behind with 21.32. Good to see Darryl back on the bike after his horrible accident last year.

Once again Rob Booth was on the course with his camera and took some really great photos.

YCF 10, V910, Sunday 12th March

Paul Posted 14th March 2017

Paul Heggie, Mick Lamb, Tony Keyworth, Paul Mapletoft and Alan Sides all rode the rolling V910 on Sunday. This isn't a fast course by any stretch of the imagination and Paul Mapletoft must have had tired legs from the day before but finished fastest of the North Mids riders with 25.14. Mick Lamb was a few sec slower with 25.20, Tony Keyworth 26.30. Paul Heggie (right) did a course pb of 26.40. Alan Sides got round in 32.45 - well done Alan.

VTTA North Mids 14.7m SpoCo, O14C, Saturday 11th March

Karen Posted 14th March 2017

Our first event of the year, on a new (resurrected) course based around the Cuckney 10 course with a few hills thrown in. A really good turnout by Group members, too many to mention - and we also picked up a few new ones. Karen Ledger (right) won the Ron Blythe trophy for best Group member on standard and was fastest woman with 35.40 (+6.17). Fastest North Mids man and 2nd overall was new member Steve Gibson with 32.42.

First races of the year!

Chris and Karen Posted 3rd March 2017

Kicking off the season proper were the Sheffrec 25m 2up and the Matlock 21m hilly, both on Saturday. We had members in both and managed some really good results - a great start to the season.

A great North Mids turnout for the 2up, with Joe Le Sage, Alix Archer, Allan Wailoo, Richard Lunt, Mick Lamb and Paul Mapletoft, Andy Whitehead, Daryl May and the Ledgers (top right) all braving the legendary Hatfield wind. Chris and Karen Ledger, now riding for Rutland CC, won fastest mixed pair with a great 58-something (results not published yet but photos here.). Ann

Over at Matlock, Trevor Mayne was 12th with 1:01.33 and Ann Walsham (Maxx RT) (right) was fastest lady by a margin of almost 4 minutes with 1:09.45 - well done both.

Update

VTTA Posted 27th Jan 2017

Have updated the events page and the faq to clarify the various group competitions this year. We might have to do a bit of a trophy revamp, as some of our awards are no longer valid given how few events we are promoting this year.

Get in touch if you have any questions.

Standards

VTTA Posted 14th Dec 2016

To encourage more people to sign up for standards we have cut the fee from £10 to a mere £5 - bargain! You can pay for them along with your subs - more info on how to do that is on our membership page.

If you still don't quite get what the mysterious world of standards is all about, I've written an article on them which should clarify it.
