CHB certainly turned it on, talking about the weather of course. But not as you would think for the sunny Hawkes Bay. They turned the rain on, so anyone who enjoyed racing in the rain would have been in their element. There was no wind to speak of, or at least that is how it appeared for those of us who remained dry at the registration point.
A small turnout of BM riders certainly let CHB know that there are some good riders in the neighbouring province and watch out when we have a bigger turnout for hopefully the second event in the series.
All riders were to complete 2 laps of the circuit with A & B grade being combined along with C & D grade. The first riders for the A grade race came through the start/finish line for the first time around 43mins.
Results are as follows.
