Weekend Racing results

 Saturday 17th September

Cookingburra 50km Handicap 

The weather on Saturday was perfect for racing and a strong number of riders turned up to contest the 50km handicap out to Cookingburra road and back. Over the course of the race the middle and front markers merged into two bunches on the way home and the pace was on from both groups. This put the pressure on the back markers who rode well together and they tried desperately to chase down the two large groups still out in front. While this was going on the middle group were also working well trying to chase down the front group which was making the chase even more difficult for those behind. But to their effort scratch fell Short by 30 seconds to catch the middle groups who also fell short by 15 seconds to catch the front groups as the front markers rode with a never say die effort and were able to handle the pressure from behind to contest the sprint between themselves.

 Emerging from the pack was Chris Little to take his first win since starting racing this year, followed by another impressive ride from Kirsty Deacon and an equally impressive ride from Tim Allen third and Jodie Uphill fourth. The sprint for fastest time was contested vigorously with Kade Brown taking the honours

A huge thanks goes out to Joe Deacon, Rohan Christmas, Tom Barry and Geoff Damm for marshalling and Dave Mann for being the commissaries.

Also please note the change in calender for this coming weekends race. It has been changed from the Bethanga course to the Stead St Plunketts road 31km handicap course. This is due to a race that is on the Sunday.

The Weekend

On Saturday afternoon Three bunches 15 minutes apart raced in a  handicap over the Cookinburra course.  At the turnaround, Limit was down to two riders, Jodie Uphill and Justin Godfrey, and they held a solid 7 minute lead.   Scratch caught the two remaining block riders, Jamie Ruddy and Steve Fraser, just after the turn and from then it was a race to see if limit would hold the large scratch bunch off.
With the return leg 6 km shorter due to the finish at the gun club, it was going to take some big turns and a group working, rather than looking around at each other.  The scratchies showed their strength, catching limit in the final kilometre.   In a close sprint Dave Mann just held off a fast finishing Jamie Ruddy by about the width of a tyre, with Declan a bike length behind.

1st & Fastest Dave Mann
2nd Jamie Ruddy
3rd Declan Gregory

Thanks to our marshals and to our new commissaire Paul Ingwersen for volunteering they time on the day.

Tour de Riverina stage 4 saw good results for the AWCC with Rohan Christmas, Jamie Ruddy, Ken Payne and Callum Dwyer all recording top a top ten finish.

Well done to the Development Squad who help Brendan Washington
