Race cancellation 
We've all been looking forward to the Bellbridge Classic. Unfortunately the race on 6 November has had to be cancelled. Recent rain damage of the roads has made a couple of places quite dangerous, especially one spot on the descent north from Talgarno Gap. Apologies to all!



Great racing

With thanks to Wodonga TAFE. They not only let us use their track. They even swept it clean for us before racing on 12 October.

Successful night
On 12 October, we had 22 senior riders and 3 juniors to use the 1.6km hotmix circuit. Seniors ran a combined A/B grade (approx 30min + 3 laps) and C grade (approx approx 25min + 3 laps). Juniors did a 15 minute roll with Greg Featonby and Rob Belsher to understand the wind and track etc. Everyone enjoyed the event with some fast close racing.

A/B 1st Lach Hutchins, 2nd Greg Fetonby, 3rd Craig McMillan
C 1st Justin Godfrey, 2nd Sam Dutton, 3rd Tom Sharp (Tom's a 1st year under 19 - everyone watch out!)

Enjoy some images from a fun night (with thanks to Jess Featonby).

Next criterium: Wednesday 26 October. Get the word out!

And don't forget...
Sunday 6 November - the Bellbridge Cycling Classic. A hillier race, only four weeks before the Tour of Bright. More details soon.

And thanks again to those who make it possible to race our crit series. Murray Wallace did a mountain of work to get this off the ground. We're grateful to Motorsports Training Australia.

Thanks to everyone that help with the Bellbridge Classic today. There was a tough decision to make on whether to go ahead with the race given that the Riverina interclub is in a state of flux. So special thanks to the race committee of Ken Payne, Tom Barry and Hugh Satchell for making that call.
