Ross Bush Memorial Handicap

SENIOR Sixty riders, eighty kilometers of racing, 600 meters of climbing, a large bunch finish, 0.023 seconds separating the first two riders, the 2015 Ross Bush Memorial Handicap was one hell of a race. The Annual race that honours the late Ross Bush who was tragically killed while out training 18 years ago was unusually raced in near perfect conditions, cool temperatures and light winds. A small but cooperative limit bunch got things underway, sharing the load and riding consistently over the first part of the race. Next back the 5th SCR (scratch) were working well together, 3rd SCR were flying and quickly picked up 4th SCR to form a super group. A hugely talented and well credentialed SCR bunch […]

Well done to Oliver Kent Spark who today wrote his name into the record books as the 2014 winner of the 99th Melbourne to Warrnambool  cycle classic.

Presidents Report, July 2014

I am writing this report the evening following a visit to my friend Rory Wilson, 64 of Drysdale who is in the spinal unit of Melbourne’s Austin Hospital. A week ago Rory collided with the rear of a truck in Portarlington sustaining critical injuries resulting in the severing of his spinal chord leaving him a paraplegic. This has been a sobering, even confronting experience for everybody in Rory’s life.  In spite of Rory’s remarkable resilience there is no escaping the magnitude of the task ahead for the Wilson Family and I wish them the very best.Rory’s event is vanishingly rare in it’s outcome however it brings into stark relief the challenges facing cyclists on public roads and the responsibility we all accept for our own and […]
