Geoff Dixon Memorial 2014

John Styles (Lavington Panthers) has won the 2014 Geoff Dixon Memorial in a bunch sprint consisting of 30 riders from the front three bunches in the race. John’s bunch flew around the course picking up second limit couple kilometres before end of the first lap of the 30km course. Then they caught limit just after the KOM/QOM sprint point - which was taken by newbie Steph Terrill – they were never headed from there.

John had to dig deep to make it over the last climb a few kilometres from home, but the master track champion prove no match for bunch of skinny roadies in the bunch kick. Rob Gray (Wagga Wagga) took third with Indiana Michel rounding out the podium. The back markers arrive a few minutes later with Peter Treloar (Tolland) taking fastest time by a mere tyre width.

Thanks to everyone who made the trip to Chiltern for today’s race. Special thanks to the hard working race committee, marshals, lead car drivers, traffic controllers, sign-on table workers and commissaires. We couldn’t do it without you guys.

Geoff Dixon Memorial 2013

The Geoff Dixon Memorial Handicap was run and won Sunday in brilliant conditions. National Road Series star and Mt Beauty come Albury boy Neil van der Ploeg (Search2Retain) unleashed a powerful sprint on the pine tree lined North Road in Chiltern to win comfortably over Stuart Shaw and Michael Rice (both of Suzuki Trek). Albury Wodonga Club Club's Rhys Pollock (Drapac) and Peter Treloar (first non NRS rider home) rounded out the top five.
This year's race was the second round of the Tour de Riverina handicap race series. With the scratch bunch having gotten up in the first race at Narrandera last weekend, the front makers were dead keen to get up for the win so the overall series win would be still in reach. But even with the ideal conditions the scratch bunch easy pulled in the 6 bunches in front of them with five kilometres still remaining. There was one or two late attacks from the bunch and a couple of hairy moments in the back of peloton as guys battle to hold on to the 50th wheel, but it did come down to a bunch sprint where the cream certainly rose to the top.
A big thanks to the new race committee, the marshals, volunteers, commissaires and all of the riders who made the effort to travel to Chiltern to make a successful day of racing.
Some photos of the race can been seen here and here. If you have any photos of your own, up load them to your Facebook page.
