Track results for Sunday 18th December 2011

The Tuesday night was called off due to rain and the weather forecast was promising the same for Thursday so the decision was made to race on the Sunday. The sky was overcast and a light but cool South Easterly wind made shorts and short sleeve shirts give way to jackets or goose bumps. The 1pm start time allowed for an extended programme which began with short points races followed by three up 500 metre scratch races, then 3 up 200 metre sprints to conclude in longer handicap races, all races raced in grades.

Three club supporters kindly donated a total of $180 in prize money for this Christmas meeting. In the long handicap races the first three in the seven grades that were raced received prize money. Also three special prizes were presented on the day, the first was to the rider who best used their handicap and rode a positive race. The prize of $20 went to under 15 rider Hayden Washington-Smith who finished 2nd in the under 15 boys and girls 6 lap handicap race.

The second prize was for the best ride of the day. This prize of $20 was awarded to Kyle Davy of Levin for his magnificent finish to just narrowly beat Campbell Stewart in the 9 lap handicap under 17 boys and girls race. The third prize was a special prize awarded to James Denholm the front marker in the under 17 boys and girls 9 lap handicap race. James rode strongly on his own in windy conditions to hold the field at bay for just over 8 laps. James was also presented with a book ’Round the Mountain’ 100 years of the Cycling Classic. Written by Ian Gray, that has just recently been published.

The next meeting is Thursday the 5th of January, with the season being in full swing and riders needing to be in peak condition for the River City Wheel Race Spectacular on the 22nd of January and the Centre Championships on the following weekend, time is fast running out and so we need to take every opportunity to best prepare our riders.
