B&DCC fielded four teams at this years Mountain Mayhem, many of them racing a 24hour event for the first time. Despite awful conditions with every possible type of mud and much of the course unrideable, all four teams plugged away through the night when many others couldnt keep going.
In the sport category all four teams finished highly and plan to be back in 2013
30 riders made this a great event, and a few were sick at the top...for our first Hill Climb promotion ever this seemed to go really well, and we hope to have more underway soon

Thanks to all involved...photos of the pain & suffering will be up soon !
It feels like the 2010/2011 Cross season has been running for ages, and this season has seen a dramatic upturn in the fortunes in the club, setting some real benchmarks to build on for next years season. With potentially many many more riders on the start line next season we stand a real good chance of being a force to be reckoned with (nearly) on the local cross circuit.
Right from race 1, this season has been a battle for club honours with Craig Devonshire taking to cycling just a few months before, myself returning from a stupid Achilles injury and Vern wanting to improve on his sub 100 placing from the previous season. MBS also showed early promise till work and other things put pressure on his season. The title came down to the wire in the last race, but unfortunately through illness I couldn’t ride, paving the way for Craig to take a deserving and convincing overall win.
· Craig Devonshire 30th Senior 67th Overall
· Steve Crapper 33rd senior 78th Overall
· Vern Richardson 15th V45 83rd Overall
· Martin Young 21st V40 114th Overall
· Graham Whiting 3rd V60 149th Overall
· Gavin Long 54th Senior 151st Overall
· Mark BS 27th V40 159th Overall
If they had raced the full quota of races, MBS, Graham, Mark & Gavin would have been much more in contention, watch out for them next year !
B&DCC also scored a 13th place in the team trophy, beating much more established clubs such as VC Long Eaton, Beeston CC, Sherwood Pines & Sherwood CC
The real hero here was Tom Whiting. A tough battle all season , saw him just take the 4th overall place and finish second U16 Boy...you can watch some footage of Toms last race here.
Georgia Crapper made good early season progress, lost confidence in the later season mud but still finished 3rd U14 girl overall
Again B&DCC scored highly in the youth team category, 5th overall !
Highest placed here was Lewis Fletcher, 15th Boy and showing some good promise for the future. Lucas Crapper was 22nd boy, Chris Wearne 23rd boy and Aaron Young 24th boy. Two girls put in a few season early races and scored good overall points with Amber Kerr finishing 7th Girl and Kimberley Taylor 8th girl
This category saw another rider show promise for the future, BMX Star Morgan Turner tried his legs in cross and finished a brilliant 18th boy, Adam Wearn was 24th boy & Lewis Connley was 41st boy.
In the U12 girls Jade Kerr put in some real effort and finished 9th girl , with little Charlotte Connley 23rd girl
I’ve already worked out that we should have close to 15 seniors on the start line for next year’s races, and hopefully with a few more youth racers too , B&DCC goes from strength to strength
Morgan has taken the Midlands BMX title after finishing runner up for the last two years (click the photo for the full article).
Morgan is now trying his hand at Cyclo-Cross riding for our club, and the early indications are that his speed and bike handling skills have been brought over from the BMX track to the mud and grass of the cross racing circuit.
Welcome to the club Morgan, we hope more trophies will follow !
Last summer , Kiveton Park Cycling Club promoted a series of 12 time trials on the Cuckney circuit. The 10 mile TT is well attended with regular riders...In its first year of TT entry, B&DCC have taken top honours, with the consistency of James Pears rewarded with first place in the overall points total. Dave Pears also finished an amazing 5th place overall
Congratulations to both riders, who we hope will encourage more "testers" to participate next season and thanks to Kiveton park CC for putting in the effort to organise the series
We have a winner !!!!
The prize for the first competitive win by a B&DCC member goes to Tom Whiting. Tom took first place in the youth B race (U14's) after riding hard to chase down a break with a 20 second lead and then bringing it all back together on the final lap to mix it in with the older sprinters.
Two of our members entered this mammoth 100mile off road event independantly. Peter Steed rode a fine race to finish 45th out of nearly 450 starters. John Kerr also entered and faired very differently, although his efforts rank just as highly as Petes
Round 1 of the three race MTB Race night series was held at Bingham Leisure Centre. A few club members made the trip and got credible results on the board. Georgia Crapper finished first under 12 girl , Tom Whiting was 5th in the under 14's
Round 2 at Glapwell was hosted by the club, and a full detailed list of results can be found on the dedicated MTB race nights page here
In Round 3, the only entrant was Tom Whiting who braved an early mishap that left him winded to finish a fine second in the u14 Juvenile Category
Imagine doing a 24 hour relay race offroad, through day and night.
Now imagine that relay team includes no other teammates and you have to do the event all on your own..24 full hours of riding. Thats just what Pete Steed did , and he finished an amazing 5th place of a field of 92 riders. An amazing effort and a fantastic result.
