Morgans Property Advisors Track Cycling 12th November 2013

A cold breeze come wind and a threatening sky made for unpleasant conditions for both Rider and Spectator on the first Tuesday night meeting of the season. The meeting was made up of graded short scratch races followed by 400 metre individual time trials followed by graded short handicap races and finish off with graded long handicap races.

A highlight of the night was the two victories by under 15 rider Max Cousins, while he was the limit marker on each of his handicap races he rode solo in the challenging windy conditions to hold off a fast finishing bunch. The close finish in Max’s second victory had the spectators on the edge of their seats as the scratch riders closed quickly on the last lap and a final effort from Dineth Rajapakse saw Max win by less than a wheel length.

The next track cycling meeting is the West Coast North Island Track Cycling Carnival to be held at Johnston Park on Sunday the 17th of November, registration from Noon and racing begins at 1pm. The club nights will be Tuesday nights for the rest of the season with racing to begin at 6.10pm.
