Ride4Will 1st Oct 2017

Ride4Will is a social ride for family, friends, and team and club mates in memory of Will Houghton. You will enjoy a very nice ride (not many hills!) 25 miles around quiet roads in North Buckinghamshire, beautiful countryside and of course great company.

Followed by a pub stop after the ride at the Akeman inn

We aim to get the ride under way by 10.30am and expect it to take two hours.

Below is the link for all the details of Will’s Ride also the Map of route

Oakley Woman’s Team Series 2017

DSC02294

Winner Mathilde Pauls

On this fast undulating circuit two riders Becky Hoare, Army Racing Team and Charlotte Burford, Sigma Sport, broke clear early on and established a lead of one and a half minutes.  With two laps to go on the fast circuit, the bunch closed the gap to only 30 seconds.  On the bell lap the pair were caught and the peloton was back together.

Hill

The finish proved to be a bunch sprint, not your typical bunch sprint due to the 500 metre climb, a turn at the top and a flat 200 metre sprint to the finish.  The first rider to take the corner at the top of the hill was the winner Mathilde Pauls, Sigma Sport. A group of six riders battled it out for the podium place.  A special mention to Laura Bowler who was forth over all and first junior. Both the primes, went to the breakaway pair.

I would like to thank our main Sponsor Mint Velvet once again for their support and for the prize fund.

Will Houghton RR 2017 Results

Will Houghton Trophy Road Race 2017

DSC02429

Winner Ollie Taylor with the Will Houghton Trophy

 This event has always proved to be a fast race with plenty of action, this year proved no different on this undulating seven lap circuit totalling fifty miles.  The bunch seemed to stay together for the first two laps, but individual riders kept attacking, making no major break in the first four laps. With four laps remaining the prime lap was won by Junior Michael Parry, Verulam.

DSC02389

 

The following lap we saw three riders breaking clear with 25 seconds, but once again it was brought back with the help of Team Vision Innovative squad.  On the final lap Junior Alex Cross, Vision Innovative, broke clear with the slender advantage of 10 seconds.  He maintained that with a kilometre to go, but was brought back by the fast bunch building in pace for the finish.

Once again like the ladies race it was down to a bunch finish.  With the 500 metre climb, we saw Josh Avery, Team Vision Innovative, round the corner first at the top of the climb.  Ollie Taylor from Flamme Rouge, powered past him with 150 metres to go to take the Will Houghton Trophy. Josh managed to hold on to his second place with 3rd, 4th & 5th was hotley contested with inches between them.

A special mention to Jamie Lloyd, Team Corely who took the first junior prize and fourth overall, a superb result for this young athlete.

Josh Avery 2nd Place

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made donations to the Will Houghton Foundation, especially those riders like the winner Ollie Taylor who donated all of his first place winnings to the Foundation.  I am totally overwhelmed by the generosity of the cycling community.  Also a thank you to all my family, friends, the Houghton Family and helpers who make this race such a special event.

A big thank you to the team at Holm Engineering who have sponsored this race for thirteen years.  Also thank you for the manufacture of the Will Houghton Trophy and Liam Summerfield who helped to design it.

NEG……where would be without the wonderful motorbike riders, they make our races so face which is so important to me and all the other organisers of road races.  A special thank you to Patrick Kavanagh who in my option is the best Commissaire in the country!

This event will always be an emotional event for all who knew and loved Will, riders who rode and raced with him and the cycling community.  Our total aim is make sure that his name and memory lives on forever.  For more information or to make a donation to the Will Houghton Foundation please see the following link.  www.willhoughtonfoundation.org

Will Houghton RR and Oakley RR Results

2016 womans winner

The Oakley Ladies Team Series Race, proved to be a tough seven lap circuit for many of the riders, especially with the heavy rain showers and steep climb before the finish.  After just few laps the field was soon whittled down to around forty riders.  Taking the first and second Prime was Annable Fisher riding for the Composite team.  On the last climb the big attacks happened, Clemence Copie of Les Filles Racing Team and Jennifer Holden Fusion RT Fierlan, were the first to come around the corner at the top of the hill, side by side all the way to the finish line, Clemence Copie just taking the win.  Annable Fisher was not far behind in third place.  The First junior was Rachel Jary from VC Londres.

 2016 Mens Winner

The Oakley Road Race was re named this year to the Will Houghton Road Race. Earlier this year Will lost his life whilst training on his bike.  He was a passionate and extremely talented rider, who rode the Oakley Road Race as a junior and a second cat.  He rode for Hillingdon CC and showed amazing potential.  An emotional day for the Houghton family and everyone who knew him, a very poignant day.  A total of £169.00 for the Hampshire Air Ambulance was raised by donations from both races.

The Men’s Road Race started at a blistering pace on this seven lap circuit.  Two riders broke clear on the first lap, one of them being Frazer Carr of RP Vision Racing Team, they were brought back half way through the second lap.  Once again the riders were being dropped off on the climb but the main bunch remained around sixty strong.  On lap three Richard Wood of TMG Horizon, broke clear and was soon joined by four more riders.  They established a lead of thirty seconds and by the end of the third lap they were joined by five more riders making a breakaway of ten.  George Pym of Raleigh GAC won the Prime on the third lap and the group had now stretched their lead to forty five seconds.  Over the next few laps they increased their lead to a minute and a half.  Joe Harris of Spirit Racing, attacked the bunch to try to bridge the gap, his attempt failed as were many attempts. 

RP Racing took control of the last lap in the bunch and brought the break down within sixteen seconds, but a bit too late to catch them before the finish.  On the finishing climb two riders in the finishing group, one being George Pym and another rider collided giving the chance for the other seven riders to contest the finish amongst themselves.  George Fowler of NFTO Pro Cycling, proved to be a worthy winner powering in twenty meters clear with Thomas Scott-Collins of Wellingborough Cycles Race team and Richard Wood of TMG Horizon Cycling Team coming second and third. The bunch soon followed in after, John Mulvey being ahead of affairs.  First Junior was Elliot-Haigh of Team Milton Keynes and the Second Junior was Jacob Tresham of Team Corley.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the marshals’ and helpers of the races.  Also mention the Commissaire’s of British Cycling, especially Mark Doel who is always so helpful.  My mother and father in law who have been the sign on team since the first ever race and I must not forget my right hand woman Helen Holmes, who multi tasks relentlessly behind the scenes. See you all next year, Scott Holmes
