With the wind blowing in the right direction to help push the riders up the hill it looked like we would get some good times.
However the condition of the road left something to be desired and it can only be left to hope and some divine intervention to make sure that the Saddle Rd is repaired to the standard that we were used to riding on before the Gorge was closed. And divine intervention to make sure that the Gorge is not closed again.
It was good to see such a good turn out of school kids and that there parents came along to support them also.
At the end of the proceedings the school prizegiving was held back at Ashhurst school hall with afternoon tea. This gave some of the adult members of the club a chance to see the marvellous talent and commitment of the younger riders that are coming up through the ranks.
The full results for each age group will be available next week.
