Can you hear it, Dynamates? That persistent honk emanating from the road just outside Dynamo Towers indicates that GUY ‘THE ENGINE’ POWDRILL is waiting to whisk DYNAMITE! to Stansted, where this publication and the big fella will be jetting off to Treviso for the much-anticipated Granfondo Pinarello – so without further ado, let’s congratulate MARTIN ‘PIN-UP’ WILLIAMSON on pulling 22:40 last Thursday to win the latest Hounslow and District Wheelers ’10’ and then nabbing 3rd two days later at the windy Bec CC event in North Holmwood, Surrey, where he clocked 21:20 over the same distance. The busy Dynamo hunk made a rare appearance at a road race the following day, taking 10th at the 2/3/4 SERRL event in Brenchley, Kent, after the seventh ascent of the formidable hill reduced the full field to a break of seven and a bunch of just 18 riders, which also included 15th-placed WILL ‘SEE YA’ HAYTER… http://tinyurl.com/5qw586. In other racing news, fearless PAUL ‘MONTY’ DELAHUNTY took 3rd place by braving the short 25 per cent “death plunge” introduced to Saturday’s E/1/2 MoD Chertsey race, which also marked the return of holidaying French-based ex-pat SAM ‘SLAM DUNK’ HUMPHESON. The GPM 10 man went on to bag an unconfirmed top five place at the E/1/2 event at Crystal Palace on Tuesday alongside Guy. And finally, this greatly foreshortened issue would not be complete without recognising the huge efforts of the volunteers who made the 3rd London Dynamo Road Race a massive success – so hard-working organiser MARTIN ‘COMEBACK’ GARRATT would like to extend a big thank-you to DAVID ‘GOLIATH’ ANDREWS, ALEX ‘BUSTED’ BASTIN, TOBY ‘IS IT COS I IS’ BLACKMAN, REBECCA ‘WHIRLIGIG’ CURLEY, TOM ‘HUMBLE’ HEMMANT, ROB ‘THE SAINT’ JEFFROY, LLYR WYNN ‘MISTER’ JONES, RICHARD ‘PLACING’ MASON, ROBIN ‘OSSIE’ OSBORNE, IAN ‘KING OF’ PAINE, DAVID ‘DORIAN’ STREULE, TONY ‘PEETEER’ SMEDLEY, MIKE ‘LUNGER’ SNEYD, HUW ‘AITCH’ WATKINS, Guy, Sam, and baker-in-chief Megan for helping out at the E/1/2/3 event in Handcross, West Sussex, on Sunday, which was won by Jonathan Tiernan-Locke of Mid Devon CC… http://tinyurl.com/6ygmdo. Paul Delahunty adds: “I think it would be nice to extend a big pat on the back to Martin for somehow managing to organise a solid road race with a motley crew of members who turn up to assist. The only hitch of the day was the 10-minute delay getting the race underway. Riders, marshals and officials all waited patiently while we tried to locate Lead Car 1 driven by Tom. It eventually returned with Dave Andrews, club captain Tony and Tom looking very guilty. The question is, what were they doing?” We’ll endeavour to find out when we return from Italy on Tuesday, pal – but for now, as impatient Guysie begins tapping his watch, it only remains for us to remind you about…


8.30am: The Parkride. Richmond Park, roundabout by Sheen Gate. Four laps split into fast, intermediate and steady groups.

8am: Kingston Gate, Richmond Park. Non-stop ride through Surrey Hills.

9am: Hampton Court bridge, south side, Surrey Hills ride. Fifty-ish miles at a steady pace. Stop at Box Hill for tea and cake. Bring a pump, inner tubes, drink, and the number of a reputable taxi firm.

7.30pm: Richmond Gate, Richmond Park. Steady ride to Chertsey, back via Weybridge, 28 miles.

So until next week, Dynamates, goodbye and happy riding.

The DYNAMITE! team.
