Revel Outdoors Race Team at Mud Sweat and Gears Round 5

Round 5 of the British Cycling Eastern XC Mountain Bike Series was held near Chelmsford at a location owned by Radical Bikes.  The venue is used predominantly for jump bikes, which meant a course full of constant ups and downs, tight-twisty turns and a real overall body workout!

To add to the challenge, there was a heavy downpour halfway through the afternoon race which had a significant impact on the riders’ ability to get round in one piece.

Revel Outdoors had another good turnout, represented across most classes from Juvenile to Grand Vet.  Richard Muchmore achieved the best result with 2nd place in the Grand Vets, while Jamie Wightman was the fastest rider completing 7 laps in 1h 53m.

Racing kicked off at 10am – Jack was out on a bone dry course in beautiful sunshine and looking far happier than he did in the mud of round 3!  This time he returned with a beaming smile on his face, after a sprint finish and a dead heat on the line he was happy with 19th.

With the action for the others kicking off at 2pm, the riders set off early for a practice lap.  From my view stood on the side lines, they really took their time doing 3 miles!  But all returned ok and ready to race.

With the limited space on site, gridding was “cozy” with a short straight leading into a right hand sweeper, so being near the front was a massive help.  Luckily every class got away without incident, and the first 2 laps passed without incident.  The short nature of the course meant lap times were around 16 minutes, so everybody was coming round far quicker than usual.  The excitement of the first 30 minutes of racing was soon changed with a heavy shower, which made the lap very sketchy and more challenging than before.  Suddenly riders were coming through showing signs of crashes!

To their credit the Revel riders soldiered on, some losing a place or two as confidence took a hit, but a few shone in the conditions, flying up through the order and going very well.  Richard Muchmore seemed to find another gear, and even through all the mud, he didn’t stop smiling!

Sadly for Will, his race finished a lap early, after an impact with a tree at speed, on a root covered section left him with a set of nasty looking bruises and ripped top.  The others all made it safely over the line, and looked really pleased to have finished.

Results:

  • Jack Styles, 19th Juvenile
  • Jamie Wightman, 5th Master
  • Stephen Heathcock, 11th Master
  • Will Mitcham, 15th Master
  • Justin Sanderson, 27th Veteran
  • Richard Muchmore, 2nd Grand Veteran
  • Garry Houghton, 5th Grand Veteran

Rider Quotes:

Jack Styles (Juvenile): “Much more fun than Ickworth, and with a sprint finish too, im just gutted I picked the wrong gear!”

Justin Sanderson (Veteran): “It was ok at the start then it was grim, with it being so twisty at times it was all I could do too keep upright!”

Garry Houghton (Grand Veteran): “What a challenge, great fun to start with, then the rain just blew the race apart! That pesky Muchmore bloke beat me, a course for the small rider!”

Stephen Heathcock (Masters): “Im glad that’s over! It was a nightmare once it got wet, keeping going and staying on took a lot of mental effort, good fun though.”

Jamie Wightman (Masters): “The rain was good for me, I started picking off a few riders and seemed to be able to find grip where others couldn’t…..”

Know Your Tour Jerseys

The 101st Tour will be made up of 21 stages and will cover a total distance of 3,664 kilometres, running from Saturday July 5th to Sunday July 27th 2014.

There’ll be a mixture of stages so every rider type is catered for.
There are:
-          9 flat stages
-          5 hill stages
-          6 mountain stages with 5 altitude finishes
-          1 individual time trial stage
-          2 rest days

For the riders there is a selection of jerseys to compete for, from the Yellow Jersey to the Red Polka-Dot Jersey. So, whether it’s Cav going for Green or Froome for Yellow this Tour is going to be epic! Not to mention the first 3 stages are in the UK!

Many of our customers are now realising just how exciting it is to watch the Pros race. To aid your watching we’ve put together a Revel Outdoors guide to explain the different Jerseys that are competed for at the Tour de France.

In total there are 4 Jerseys that are competed for on a daily basis. As well as the jerseys there is also the team classification and the Combativity award.

Le Tour Jerseys

The Jerseys

Yellow Jersey
Traditionally called the Maillot Jaune, this jersey is awarded to the rider with the lowest cumulative time for the distance completed so far – the leader of the General Classification (G.C.).

The holder of the Yellow Jersey at the traditional finish on the Champs Elyse in Paris is crowned the overall winner of the Tour de France. Generally the jersey is decided in the mountains where the real tour winning action takes place.

yellow jersey

Last year Chris Froome took the Yellow Jersey home and he’s back to defend it this year!

 

The Polka-Dot Jersey
The winner of this jersey is known as the ‘King of the Mountains’ as it is awarded to the best climber in the race.

The leader of this competition wears the distinctive polka-dot jersey each day. Points are awarded for positions at the top of climbs, both along the route and at summit finishes. Each climb is classified, the higher and/or steeper the climb the hard the climb will be categorised. The harder the climb, the more points will be awarded to the rider who reaches the summit first.

For example; for the Cote de Cray climb on stage 1 this year there is only 1 point awarded to the first rider over the top. Compare this to Montee dy Hautacam climb on stage 18 where 50 points will be available to the first rider to reach the summit.

The organisers of le Tour classify each climb and award points as follows:
-           “Highest level” passes: 25, 20, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 points respectively for the first 10 riders to finish.
-          Category 1 passes: 10,8,6,4,2,1 points respectively to the first 6 riders to finish.
-          Category 2 passes: 5,3,2,1 points respectively to the first 4 riders to finish.
-          Category 3 passes or hills : 2, 1 points, respectively to the first 2 riders to finish.
-          Category 4 passes: 1 point to the first rider to finish.
Points awarded are doubled for finishing on the 10th, 13th, 14th, 17th and 18th stages in this year’s race.

Thomas Voeckler in action
Thomas Voeckler in action

Famous riders to wear the Polka Dot Jersey are GB cyclist Robert Miller in 1984 and French rider Thomas Voeckler in 2012.

The Green Jersey
The Green Jersey is also known as the ‘Point’s Jersey’ or ‘Sprinters’ Jersey’. Points are awarded each day for position, rather than time, across the line. So riders who finish consistently high each day build up green jersey points. The flatter stages offer greater points rewards to keep the daily race action lively.

Additional points can be picked up at intermediate sprints known as ‘Primes’ or ‘Hot Spots’ placed along the route.

To win this jersey the rider has to be a consistent, fast finisher on the flat stages and be able to survive the mountain stages in one piece.

green jerseyIn 2011 Mark Cavendish won the Green Jersey and this year he is out to do the same!

The White Jersey
The White Jersey is awarded to the leader of the young rider category. For a rider to be in contention in the young riders category they have to be under 25. The White Jersey is basically a young person’s version of the Yellow Jersey. Few riders win both the Yellow and White Jerseys in the same year but the White Jersey winner usually finishes in the top 10 in G.C.

white jersey

Last year Nairo Quintana won the White Jersey and finished 2nd overall on the General Classification.

The Team Classification

Along with the different Jerseys there is also a Team classification prize. The team which has five riders with the lowest cumulative time will wear a yellow background on their race number that is pinned to their jersey. Taking it one step further, it has been known for the leading team to wear yellow helmets so they are more recognisable in the bunch.

Combativity Award

Lastly there is a daily award for the most aggressive (combative) rider of that stage. This doesn’t mean the rider who barges their way through to get to the finish first; this is awarded to the rider who has been the most active during that stage, generally being awarded to a rider who has constantly been attacking and in the breakaway on that stage. The rider who is awarded the Combativity prize will wear a red background on their race number for the following stage.

The FS260 Pro II jersey is Revel Outdoors’ answer to the Maillot Jaune!

Santini’s solution for the rider in white is the Tempo Jersey

Revel Outdoors Race Team at Mud Sweat and Gears Rd4

Ickworth Park, Mud Sweat and Gears Round 4, 8th June 2014. 

Race day dawned; the skies were dry, sunny and very hot for the riders who attended Round 4 of the MSG series being held at Ickworth Park. More famously the Family Seat of the Marquis of Bristol, the grounds of Ickworth Park has been opened up over the last 3 years to become a firm favourite among the Eastern Region Cross Country MTB scene. Ickworth provides a course that not only tests the legs but plays havoc with the mind!

Heavy rain on Saturday had made the course very tricky in places; surface changes through the challenging 3 mile course ranged from dry hard packed grass to thick slippery mud. Also thrown into the mix were a few tricky descents – the racers had a course that really tested tired legs and bodies.

Our Revel Outdoors race team had a great turn out of riders, spread across the many categories during the day. Some looking to gain points in the overall series and others simply looking to get their race season underway. On parade we had,

Jack Styles (Juvenile)
Garry Houghton (Grand Veteran)
Darren Styles (Veteran)
Rob Balaam (Veteran)
Jamie Wightman (Masters)
Steve Heathcock (Masters)
Will Mitcham (Masters)

With the action kicking off at 10am, Jack had probably the worst conditions to contend with. On his dad’s old Giant Anthem he pushed himself round for his best result of the season so far (15th) returning with a bike that weighed more than him!

As the afternoon arrived and more sun on the course, it was time for the senior members of the team to embark on a practice lap. Conditions had changed a little; the surface had gone from boggy to sticky, making it very tiring for the legs. Some parts were now so slippery that even staying on the bike was a challenge!

Race Time

By 2pm, the air temperature had risen to around 24 degrees, making hydration even more important than normal. As the various grids were assembled and the start procedures were given, nervous riders went through their unique pre-race routines. To the onlooker some of these routines are questionable but once adrenaline is pumping things just happen.

Each class is started with around a minute gap to give everyone a fair chance at the first corner and subsequent climb. This gives each category a good run at the first part of the lap.

Each rider gave everything they had, putting in strong rides and testing both their bike handling skills and willpower from start to finish; Revel Outdoors owner Jamie looked like he was floating on clouds, Steve made the climb (which Darren hated) look like it wasn’t there, Rob secretly loved every minute of it, even Garry had time to shout words of encouragement, and Will (still sore from a day of motor racing at 120mph plus on the Saturday) increased his bruise count by coming off hard on a root-littered muddy section.

Rider Quotes

Darren Styles (Veteran)
“Great to be back out there! The slog of the uphill parts was duly rewarded by the fast flowing downhill section and the drop into the pit – knowing there was a baying crowd there meant the A-line was the only option!”

Garry Houghton  (Grand Veteran)
“My choice of race bike was perfect for at least 50% of the lap, sadly the other 50% was made up of conditions I hate and I struggled. Fatigue got the better of me towards the end, possibly because of trying too hard in the bits I don’t enjoy. But points on the board and there is a long way to go yet.”

Will Mitcham (Masters)
“My confidence took a battering on the practice lap, but encouragement from my teammates, got me back on the grid and ready to go. Sadly, a fairly sizeable moment in the slippery wooded section saw me compound injuries I was already carrying.”

Steve Heathcock (Masters)
“It has to be UK mountain bike racing when it’s summer in the air and winter on the ground! Great course though, real shame about the 24 hours of rain that ruined it really.  Jamie and I went off pretty quick at the start of the Masters race. We were running together until the rider in front of me dismounted on a short sharp up, forcing me off as well. I lost Jamie’s wheel and that was that! Dig in and get to the finish!”

Rob Balaam (Veterans)
“After practice I decided a slower first lap in these muddy conditions would help save the legs for later laps. I had no incidents but did lack front grip – the thick sticky mud was to much for my front tyre but I ploughed on through the mud on my Cannondale Scalpel. Exhausted I reluctantly pull out after 3 laps – back to the training before the next race for me.”

Jack Styles (Juvenile)
“That was tough,  my bike weighed more than me at the finish! I felt like I was ploughing rather than riding!”

Gorrick Summer Monkey

Taking place on Sunday 1st June was the Gorrick Summer Monkey Enduro MTB Race. With options from the 1 hour beginner race to the 6 hour category there really was something for everyone. James D, a member of our race team, was there to compete in the 6 hour category.  Here’s his race report of the event…

The Summer Monkey was one of those rare races where sun cream was actually needed rather than waterproofs!

The Gorrick team had put together another of their popular courses around Ceaser’s Camp consisting of swoopy singletrack, long fireroad climbs and fast descents.

An additional obstacle was also present in the form of militant dog walkers who seemed oblivious to the ‘cycle event’ notices and race tape marking the course. One of which clotheslined me off the bike with their giant pooch on an extendable lead. Ouch!

James on his way to 13th
James on his way to 13th

I took my Cannondale Scalpel 29, a bike that pretty much screams at you to push it as hard as you possibly can and rewards you with great handling and speed on the trails. I still need to teach myself to ignore its demands, as thrashing your legs off isn’t the best strategy for a 6 hour race and instead settle down, let the plush Lefty soak up the bumps and enjoy the ride.

Legs mashed, I wasn’t expecting a great result so was pleasantly surprised to finish 13th rather than languishing at the back where I thought I’d be.

Next up for is 80 miles and 4493 metres of gruelling climbing at the Devil’s Challenge in Wales. Don’t fail me now legs!

Thetford Winter Series 2013/2014, Races 3 and 4

The Revel Outdoors team had some more good results in the 3rd and 4th rounds of the Thetford Winter Series mountain bike races.

Round 3: Brandon Country Park

The 3rd round was wet and muddy, with several riders pulling out due to mechanical failures.  Stephen James began the 4hr race in his usual spot at the front, but was soon stuck in one gear and had to ride the majority of the race single-speed.  He still managed to hold onto 2nd place.

For various reasons (mostly the weather forecast!) Garry Houghton was the only team member in the 2hr Vets category, coming home in a solid 26th place out of 110 riders.  Stephen Heathcock only managed one lap in the Seniors 2hr race before pulling out with mechanical trouble.

Round 4: Mayday Meadow

The 4th and final round saw the return of the sunshine and dry weather, making for another fast and flowing course.

Showing off his new Revel Outdoors and Cannondale sponsored Renvalt RT kit, Steve James powered away from the rest of the 4hr field to finish a clear 15 minutes ahead of everyone, and take the series win.  Steve’s Strava activity for the race is quite remarkable: 65 miles of mostly twisty singletrack at an average over 15 mph!

In the 2hr seniors race, Revel Outdoors owner, Jamie Wightman, had a close duel with fellow staff member, Dan Collins, with Dan getting the better of him on the last lap to finish 12th.  Jamie came in 40 seconds later in 16th.

In the 2hr vets race, Garry Houghton had a great race, finishing 20th, with Darren Styles coming in 46th.

A cross-country mountain bike racing team, Renvale RT, has been launched in East Anglia with support from the motor racing industry and Bury St Edmunds performance bike shop Revel Outdoors.  The five-strong team, which has been kitted out with new Cannondale mountain bikes and team clothing from Pactimo, gave the bikes their first test in Thetford Forest on Saturday under the watchful eye of Revel Outdoors owner Jamie Wightman and shop/team mechanic Mike Stoveld.

Captained by Steve James, who is also Commercial Director of team sponsor Renvale, the team will compete at National XC level and in the National Championships.  Steve, an Elite XC rider from Diss, is joined by William Cheaney, Matt Dennis, Simon Ernest and Ian Mockett.  Steve said:  “Renvale decided to sponsor a Professional Cross Country Race Team because of the close links between Formula 1 and cycling. The technology coming into cycling now has a great synergy to Renvale’s main business of electrical and electronic parts in F1. Technological advances such as electronic gear shifting, power measuring and wireless systems can all be found on racing cars and are now becoming the norm for top-end bikes either on the road or off-road.”

Team Bikes: Cannondale F29 Carbon Team
Team Bikes: Cannondale F29 Carbon Team

For the 2014 season the team has secured sponsorship from Cannondale UK. The riders will use Cannondale F29 Carbon Team issue bikes with Cannondale’s world renowned Lefty fork. The bikes are equipped with full Sram XX1 groupset, custom manufactured carbon wheels built with Cycleops Power Tap rear hub so no training session is wasted and Schwalbe tyres for sure-footed grip on any terrain in any weather. All the bikes have been professionally built, set-up and fine-tuned at Revel Outdoors, one of Cannondale’s main UK dealers, which will also service the bikes throughout the season.  Revel Outdoors also runs the CannondaleSpares.com website, the UK’s leading source of Cannondale spares parts and accessories.  Renvale RT will be wearing custom designed clothing manufactured by Pactimo and selected for quality, performance and style. All team riders will be wearing Kask helmets, which are unrivalled in the marketplace, supplied from Revel Outdoors and chosen for the fit, comfort and weight.

Revel Outdoors owner Jamie Wightman said: “I’m an active XC racer myself and have known and ridden with Steve for many years, so the partnership with the Renvale RT was an exciting opportunity which allows us to showcase some of our high end products, and the technical expertise of the workshop staff.”

The second round saw a welcome return to Santon Downham, which hasn’t been used by the organisers for a while.  Once again the course was fast and dry, with only the bumpy surface to slow down and beat up the riders’ legs.

6 riders from the Revel Outdoors team took part, with Darren Davis pulling off a 6th place in the 2hr vets despite falling off twice, and Jamie Wightman moving up several places to finish 9th in the 2hr seniors’ race.

Full team results:

  • Jamie Wightman: 9th, 2hr seniors
  • Ian Mockett: 17th, 2hr seniors
  • Will Mitcham: 39th, 2hr seniors

There’s now a gap for Christmas, until the next two rounds at the end of January and February.

 

 

Cannondale Scalpel 29er – so, so good!

I’ve ridden a lot of bikes around Thetford Forest over the years, but nothing rides as well as the Cannondale Scalpel 29er – I can’t get over how good this bike is.  I haven’t made any mods to my 2013 Scalpel 29er Carbon 2 – I just pulled the tubes out of the tyres, set up the suspension and rode off.  There’s plenty of scope for making it lighter and faster…

Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 2
Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 2: Effortlessly Efficient

Last Sunday’s Thetford Winter Series race was a bumpy one.  It was also relatively flat and fast, although some sections were a bit draggy.  In this environment the Scalpel is unbelievably good.  The combination of the 29er wheels and short travel suspension means it rolls effortlessly and efficiently.  There’s no way I should be finishing up in 9th in my current state of fitness!  There were several sections of the course where I was passing people without putting in any effort, sitting in the saddle and gliding past.  Suffering from Thetford back?  Not me!

On a hilly course, a lighter hardtail might have the edge, but for most of what we do around Thetford, I don’t think there’s a better bike out there.

Dusk til Dawn 2013 – Revel Outdoors Race Teams

Two podiums and two top ten finishes for the Revel Outdoors teams at the 2013 Dusk til Dawn mountain bike night race in Thetford Forest.

Bury bike shop Revel Outdoors was represented by 4 teams in the 2013 Dusk til Dawn 12-hour mountain bike night race, held in Thetford forest on Saturday night 5th October.  Conditions were dry and quick, and with a relatively flat course the pace was fast and furious.

The Revel Outdoors team had a superbly organised pit this year, keeping us warm, comfortable, well-fuelled and entertained all evening.

 

Results

The 4-man elite team of Stephen James, Matt Dennis, Ian Mockett and Callum Riley (on loan from Newdales Cycles Race Team) left the rest of the field behind right from the start, winning the race over a lap ahead of 2nd place.  The team completed 20 laps, over a distance of 177 miles.

4-man Team Podium
1st place for the 4-man Revel Outdoors Team

 

The 4-man shop team of Darren Styles, Rob Balaam, Justin Sanderson and Will Mitcham finished in a highly respectable 8th place, completing 17 laps.

 

The 3-man team of Revel Outdoors owner Jamie Wightman, Steve Heathcock and Darren Davis finished 3rd in their race, completing 18 laps after a long and close fight with both 2nd and 4th places.

3-man Team Podium
3rd place for the Revel Outdoors 3-man Team

 

And finally James Deane completed 14 solo laps – 124 miles! – to finish in 9th place.

 

A fantastic evening was had by all the team and our thanks goes out to the organisers and all our fellow competitors.

See you next year!
