Race Results and Photos

Many of our riders are away this week for the inter-school sports, so we wish them all the best in their events and look forward to hearing of their achievements.

The Junior Skill Session this week focussed on seated and standing climbing technique with all riders quickly learning how to maximise their speed and efficiency in the fight against gravity.

This week we combined Junior A and B and split them into teams for a mixed grade handicap which was taken out by Zac D, Eli K and Jake N in yellow team over a determined pink team led by Jazz J with Ella B, Charlie H and Lachlan McD.

All riders in Junior A and B were presented with an encouragement award in the form of a jersey and shorts from Michael Percival Property who are the main sponsor for the upcoming Junior Tour of Port Macquarie on 10-11 June.

There was also a race of 1 lap for our youngest riders, Mia, Luca and Billy who finished in that order after a solid trip around the circuit.

Next, it was the Women's Race which was held alongside D grade with Lachy McD, Jake N and Eli stepping up to D for the day to give it a try against Oscar J. This was a fascinating race as Oscar J used all his racing nous to stick with Amanda Anderson as she dropped the field. Oscar went on the attack once or twice but was quick to abandon when it clear he wasn't getting away. This left him with the capacity for a strong finish to take out D grade with Lachlan McD across second followed by Eli and Jake. Amanda took first in the women's division over Christy Dee Jakeman.

With reduced numbers, it was decided to combine grades A-C in in a mixed grade teams race. Each team had 3 riders and nominated their 1st/2nd/3rd rider. After the race time was complete the bell was rung to initiate the finish for the 3rd rider in each team. A few laps later the signal was given for the final lap for the 2nd rider leaving the 1st rider of each team on the track to contest the final sprint. As it turned out the points were level between all three teams after the 3rd and 2nd riders were finished so it came down to the final sprint with Brandon Conway taking the honours for Stuart Jakeman and Wade Buchan of Blue Team. Second across was William Pender for Paul Hamerlok and Craig Robinson of Red Team. Third was Yellow Team with Dave O'Brien, Ashley Stapley and Josh Magennis.

With 2 weeks of Crit competition left there is still the chance of changes at the top of almost every grade.
