Club Road Race Saturday 30 April 2011

Even though preregistration for the event was called for not many people had preregistered. So when the weather turned out fine although a bit cooler with a brisk wind it was good to see a large turnout. A lot of riders were using the event as a final practice before the Club Nationals in a weeks time. Sixteen A grade riders headed off to complete 2 laps of the 33km circuit from Colyton down to Ashhurst up to Valley Rd and then back to Colyton. It took the lead riders exactly an hour to complete the first lap, at which stage 3 riders had a small advantage over the chasing bunch. However those lead riders were caught on the second lap and with the tough wind conditions a couple of riders called it a day and di not complete the second lap. Unfortunately there were only 3 B grade riders registered. They were to complete 2 laps of the course also but they were combined with the 9 C grade riders which only had to do one lap of the course. The D grade was going to complete the same circuit but due to the lack of experience of some of the riders and the conditions the D grade was split and 2 riders went with the C grade and the remaining 5 riders did a shortened race from Colyton out to the top of the Valley Rd lookout and return. This was the final event for awhile as after Nationals next week we will be having a break for a few weeks. Keep an eye on the club calendar to see when the next Saturday race will be.
