BQA Annual Report and Virtual AGM 2022

Jean Ashley BQA Secretary

Dear BQA Race Organizers and Affiliates,

First and foremost I hope you have all stayed fit and healthy in what has been another challenging year for many of us!

I started last year’s Annual Report with these words …. ‘As most of you will know, I’m never stuck for words, but for once I didn’t really know where to start putting together our BQA Report ….’ Well it’s not been quite that bad this time …. thanks to you race organizers we did manage to have 3 Quads in our calendar and most of us managed at least one of them! Lets hope by next season we will all be firing on all cylinders! Motivation to train is often fueled by race adrenaline, so let’s hope we can back to racing, and put events in our calendar to fuel our passion!

As always we really appreciate your support and commitment to our sport and thank-you for organizing your Quadrathlon Races. We’ve have some great races organized by you and your ‘Teams’ all extremely hard working volunteers who give up there time each year, please thank them all again on behalf of the BQA.

You can read the ‘2021 BQA Annual Report and Virtual AGM’ click here.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any ideas, suggestions or comments, all will be most welcome, Thank-you.

We really hope you can continue to organize a Quadrathlon/Kayak Tri in your race calendar. We will promote your event and help out as much as we can to get as many athletes as possible at your race, lets keep our sport moving forwards!

Wishing you all a safe winter’s training and racing and hears to be a Wonderful Adventurous 2022!

See you all Next Year

Best Wishes Jean

TT11 – The End

The final TT was a return to the conditions that prevailed at the start of the series: coldish with a strong gusty North wind that made the return leg tough going. However, no roadworks (HURRAY), no mountains of muck off the tractors, no convoy of harvesting machinery, no speed detectors and the season was completed without a single train interrupting proceedings.

TT10 18th August

I was somewhat aghast when roadworks appeared in Hibaldstow with traffic lights in both directions.  Imagine my dismay when I got to Scawby Brook and found more roadworks and lights over the start and finish line.  The latter was resolved by moving further down the road so that the lights did not impinge on the course.  Donna and Jeff nobly manned the section in Hibaldstow and were kept very busy noting all the stoppages.  A huge thank you to them both.  The results took some disentangling.

Much improved weather for TT8 21st July

After the horrendous weather that led to the cancellation of TT7, the sun came back out to play.  Not a frozen marshal in sight and some cracking times.  The only down side was that the sunshine and heat seemed to have spawned an outbreak of agricultural machinery and other traffic on the roads which led to some rider frustration.

TT6 Muck and Bullets

Not the best TT for me as organiser this week.  Having diligently cycled the route pre-event and found it clear, a tractor sneaked out after I had left for the event and deposited mountains of muck all along the road out of Hibaldstow.  Ok, a bit of hyperbole, but thanks to Simon and Isaac for alerting us so that Fabulous Fiona starting the riders could pass on the information.

Then there was the speed limit furore.  There was a complaint from a resident that competitors were breaking the speed limit through Hibaldstow as evidenced by the speed detectors at two points in the village.  While most of us can only wish we were capable of this, I must stress that all participants MUST adhere to the Highway Code at all times and this includes abiding by the speed limits.

From the 7th July there will be marshals at the speed detectors and anyone observed breaking the speed limit will be disqualified.  Likewise, anyone evidenced to have been discourteous to residents will be DQ.

Meanwhile, another great race with no rain!  Congratulations to Bevan Jones on breaking the 20-minute barrier.  His 19:23 is the course record for the new course this year.  Sheehan Quirke notched up a wonderful effort on 21:14 and Simon Abdy, another consistently fast rider, followed him in on 21:24.  Six other riders broke the 23-minute mark.  Jayne Baldwin put in a PB effort to be the first lady to get under 26 minutes this year and beat off stiff opposition from the impressive Rachel Gottlieb.  Vikki Wilson took the 3rd spot and Imogen Hall had a fantastic ride to finish 4th in 27:02 and take 3rd Lincsquad female on the night.

Many thanks to everyone who marhsalled for the evening, you did a fantastic job.

I only have one volunteer for 7th July so please let me know if you can help out.

Good luck to everyone doing Coast to Coast this weekend.  Have a great ride and stay safe.

Jane Taylor
