     ...UEA RESULTS...

    Name                          Time      Position (with ranking)

    John Swindells                1:3:17    7(15)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    

It was very windy and very cold: winds of 30 mph or so and hailstones falling occasionally. Only three riders got under the hour on this undulating course in the Midlands (no climbs as such) with lots of awkward turns.


Beauvale C.C. '25(Course A25/24)

Men: Geoff Platts (Coalville Whs CC) 52:20

C.C. Breckland '10(Course B10/18)

Date: Saturday 07 March, 1998


Men: Tony Barber (VC Norwich) 23:16
     ...UEA RESULTS...  
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Name                          Time      Position (with ranking)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Sam Villeneuve                33:00      (50)
    Jo Tuck                                 DNF (Hit by car)
    John Swindells                DNF (Punctured)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    

A bit of a disastrous day all round really! To start with it was blowing a gale, and what should come along but a great big downpour! Then Jo got swiped by a car that was pulling out (thankfully no bones broken, but a lovely dent in the car). Then John got an insta-puncture just as he was catching Leo rider Martin Pyne (who had stopped for about half a minute to see if Jo was alright...).
Ah well, there's always the next time...


C.C. Breckland '10(Course B10/3E)

Date: Wednesday 03 June, 1998


Men: Martin Pyne (Leo RC) 20:56
     ...UEA RESULTS...  
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Name                          Time      Position (with ranking)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    John Swindells                21:07     2(6)
    Sam Villeneuve                25:39     
    --------------------------------------------------------
    

Less than half the field started in this evening event, mostly scared off by the rain and spray conditions on the busy A11. John and Sam stuck it out, however, and were rewarded with PBs on the quickly-drying dual carriageway.


E.C.C.A. '10(Course B10/40)

Date: Saturday 18 April, 1998


Men: Robert Hagger (API Resprays) 21:02

    John Swindells                21:30     3(12)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    



Plomesgate C.C. '10(Course B10/9)

Date: Saturday 16 May, 1998


Men: John Swindells (CC Breckland) 22:38
Men: Paul Newman (Ipswich BC) 22:38
Women: Sarra Whelan (Wolsey RC) 28:58
     ...UEA RESULTS...

C.C. Breckland '100(Course B100/8)

Date: Sunday 21 June, 1998


Men: David Solomon (Whitewebbs CC) 4:6:18
     ...UEA RESULTS...  
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Name                          Time      Position (with ranking)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Adam Wild                     4:49:53   
    --------------------------------------------------------
    

This first 100-mile TT for Adam put him just inside five hours, including an unscheduled call of nature. John had to pull out through knee pain.
Weather conditions were warm (in the twenties even first thing), but a stiff breeze blowing up the A11 towards Norwich meant 9-mile headwind slogs and less help in return on the return leg.


Mildenhall C.C. '25(Course B25/38)

Date: Sunday 26 April, 1998


Men: Martin Pyne (Leo RC) 53:44
Women: Heather Wankowski (Stowmarket & Dist CC) 1:07:34

    John Swindells                56:20     5
    --------------------------------------------------------
    



West Suffolk Wheelers '25(Course B25/38)

Date: Sunday 19 April, 1998


Men: Gary Dighton (Leo RC) 50:47
     ...UEA RESULTS...  
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Name                          Time      Position (with ranking)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    John Swindells                55:05     11
    Dave Cooper                   1:02:30   
    Jo Tuck                       1:10:     
    --------------------------------------------------------
    

A calm morning for once, although a bit misty for the early starters. A PB for John, once again riding a 98" fixed (and suffering for it).
Dave is showing promise, but has yet to return to his form of 1996.


Ely & District C.C. '25(Course BS19)

Date: Sunday 15 February, 1998


Men: Matt Belfield (Team Castelli Sport) 52:33
     ...UEA RESULTS...  
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Name                          Time      Position (with ranking)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    John Swindells                58:21     8
    Jo Tuck                       1:17:44   ?
    Dave Cooper                   DNS       
    Adam Wild                     DNS       
    --------------------------------------------------------
    

For once this was an absolutely beautiful day, with a temperature of around 14 degrees C, and just a calm breeze. Not surprisingly, the course record fell by almost three minutes.

Dave was unable to start because of a squash ball injury, and Adam was complaining of aching limbs.

John was well pleased with his time, especially considering his exertions in the BUSA cyclo-cross the day before.


Racing Team East '26(Course BS2)

Date: Saturday 14 March, 1998


Men: John Swindells (CC Breckland) 59:00
Women: Julie Baker (Colchester Rovers C.C.) 1:11:14
     ...UEA RESULTS...  
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Name                          Time      Position (with ranking)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    John Swindells                59:00     1(5)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    

Wahey! At last, an open event win for John.


Newmarket & District C.C. '26(Course BS2)

Date: Saturday 11 April, 1998


Men: Rick van Looy (Colchester Rovers CC) 51:00
     ...UEA RESULTS...

    John Swindells                54:18     4(9)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    



C.C. Breckland '100km(Course BS29)

Date: Sunday 15 March, 1998


Men: G Taylor,L Palmer,A Hardy,G Dighton (Leo RC) 1:4:40
     ...UEA RESULTS...  
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Name                          Time      Position (with ranking)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    A Newark,J Swindells,
    R Boundy,B Spooner 1:10:19 5 J Crane, K Snowling,
    H Wells 1:31:49 --------------------------------------------------------

The only UEA riders here this time were John, Heather and Jo, riding in CC Breckland colours. The revised course (due to roadworks) was interestingly hilly, and certainly proved a test of a team's ability to stick together. The twisty village route also tended to split the riders.

The weather was basically fine - overcast, with a light breeze, and temperatures around 9 degrees.
