Sports Nutrition

Manx Viking Wheelers will be promoting a talk on sports nutrition for performance and health. Martin Malone has been working with Manx Viking Wheelers for a number of years running the winter spin programme. Martin is an experienced fitness and nutrition professional and has worked with many athletes over the years designing bespoke sports nutritional plans. Martin has kindly agreed to do a presentation on ‘Sports Nutrition for Performance and Health’ which is open to anyone who would like to attend. The presentation is designed to give clear guidance to athletes and parents on how to construct a good nutrition plan to deliver maximum sports performance – and of course health. Martin will also explain the link between what you eat and how that impacts performance and recovery. The presentation will be particularly useful for parents of young athletes to help them understand what they should be doing to ensure their children are eating the right foods to benefit their training and education. Martin will also be able to design bespoke plans for anyone interested. The talk will last approximately 90 minutes including question time. Handouts will be provided at the end of the talk.

Location: Sports Institute, NSC
Time and Date: Friday 10th March at 7.30pm
Cost: £5 per person

Numbers are limited, please contact Brian Johnson  by email ( to book a place.

JB Ride
This year’s ride will again be focused on the north of the Island with a café stop in the stunning surroundings of the Milntown Estate. We have written a few words about the funds you have helped raise to date.

‘Since the James Berry Fund started in 2007 you have raised over £17,000 to help local young cyclists experience racing across the UK and Europe.

Riders that you have helped to gain experience across the UK and Europe include Tom Black, Colum O’Shea, Chris Nicholson, Tim Kennaugh, Chris Whorrall, Jonny Bellis, Jake Kelly, Tom Mazzone, Sophie Black, Leon Mazzone, Owen Dudley and Matthew Drapper.

The James Berry ride not only helps young riders to fulfil their ambitions but also gives the opportunity for riders of all ages and abilities to come together for a ride, café stop and a social get together.’

As usual there will be two routes this year.

The longer route will leave from the Grandstand at 9:00am and be approx 55 mile route.

The shorter route will leave the Mooragh Park at 9.30am and follow an approx 20 mile route to the café.

Sign on sheets will be in Bikestyle from Wednesday 4th October and the cost of the ride is £10. This will give you a ticket to cover refreshments at the café with the remainder of the funds raised going to the James Berry Fund.

We hope to see as many of you out as possible on the day. Let’s hope we get the great weather we have been blessed with every other year to help facilitate a great ride.

‘Bikestyle/MVW 3 Up 25 Mile Time Trial’
There was a great turn out for today’s Island Games fundraising event. 73 riders contested the 25 mile team time trial in near perfect conditions. Unusually for this type of event, all teams managed to finish - with some fast times! The event was won by Robin Garry, Ed Perry and Tom Mazzone with a time of 51:27. Runners up were the team of Owen Dudley, Gary Johnston and Mark Harrison with a time of 54:55. And finishing the podium in 3rd place were the trio of young riders Jimmy Bostock, Adam Kelly and Tosh Teare in a time of 55:21 (this was an excellent time considering the 3 boys had to dismount and wait whilst the traffic snarl up was cleared!). Thanks to all who entered the Bikestyle raffle after the event, with all proceeds also put towards the 2017 Island Games. As usual, a massive thank you to all the organisers and helpers who make events like this possible. Results (EXCEL / PDF)

Dear All

We are busy behind the scenes trying to get everything prepared for the Youth Tour which this year has been particularly challenging in terms of the logistics required to put the races on in a safe way for the riders.

We are, as ever going to need a lot of marshals to assist us.  We would therefore be extremely grateful if you could possibly spare some time to assist.

The stages required are as follows:

Saturday 30th April 2016

Peel (8am - 12:30)

28 required

Saturday 30th April 2016

Ellerslie (13:15 - 17:30)

16 required

Sunday 1st May 2016

Bride (8am - 12:30)

We are aware that there have been a lot of requests for help for the various events being held this year, these requests however really are essential to organisers being able to put on safe racing on the Isle of Man.  This is an opportunity for you to give something back to the sport without sacrificing your own racing!!

If you are able to help, please email us on

Many thanks

Erica & Emma

The Isle of Man Cycling Association and IOM Govt DED were disappointed not to have been awarded the honour of staging the British National Cycling Road Race Championships in 2016 after partaking in a prolonged bid process.

Feedback from British Cycling indicated that the bid was very strong however it fell short on the fact that the Isle of Man lacked a current ‘track record’ in promoting Senior Elite Road Races. The last time the top echelon of British Cycle Sport appeared on Manx roads was in 2003 when Manx International Cycling Week was staged for the last time.

We are pleased to announce that continued discussions with British Cycling and IOMG DED led to a bid to host a round of the British Elite Road Series in 2016. If this event is successful it will be staged annually and will lead to another bid to host the British National Championships in 2018.

The event is scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday 10th April 2016.

This is a major event that is covered by Eurosport and will show the Island in a positive light.

Part of the British Elite Championship Series the event will bring the top echelon of British Cycle Sport back to Manx roads on Sunday 10th April 2016. It will be an annual event which will lead to the Island bidding to host the British National Road Championships in 2018.

We need 250 volunteers to act as Stewards and Marshals on the day…..can you help us please?

The duty hours will be from 12.30 pm to 6.00 pm at the latest. Lots of volunteers will be ‘stood down’ from approximately 4.00 pm onwards. The duty tasks will not be onerous or complicated, it will be mostly providing a ‘hi viz’ presence, marshalling barrier positions and helping people to cross the roads etc all with a big smile! The volunteers will be the ‘happy face’ of the event.

All volunteers will be entered into a raffle with some great prizes on offer and will receive some souvenir clothing.

If you can help us stage this exciting new event please let us know as soon as possible by contacting us at; or via the event website contact page
