Club Road Champs Attracts 55 Members to Race

IMG 1600

It’s seems our club spirt is alive and well as young and older members were quick to spread the word about last weekend’s club champs at Colyton which the club appreciates. 55 members lined up and registered to race the safe and challenging Hiwinui circuit at different distances. 18km,36km,54km and 72km. A good combination of roughly where schools’ riders and the other half masters.

All age groups were well catered for in competitive grades by race organiser and board member Mike Craine. Mike and his team of volunteers did a fantastic job and we thank them.
Traffic Management: Peter Robson, Tim Lloyd, Paul Ainsworth. Registration; Tim Lloyd and myself. Marshall’s; Karin and Eden Craine, Kylie Mulcahy and Steph, Dave Hoskins, Shaun Cousins ,Louise Ransom. Sag Wagon: Darren Sharland. Finishing Judges: Bernie Richmond, Mike Simpson, John Stewart.

People who have not raced before were buzzing after their ride and some of our more experienced and competitive masters riders were also buzzing having had the opportunity to race against under 23 club and national stars like Campbell Stewart and other young and upcoming riders which they said was a fantastic learning experience.
All and all, members young and old thoroughly enjoyed the two hours afternoon of racing and the word is people want more racing.
If people are prepared to put there hand to help out as we experience this time round them we will address the race calendar and see what we can organise further events. In doing so maybe afterwards we will be able to all stay on for a social hour and a cup of tea.
