We sincerely apologies for the late notice. It is something that we do our best to avoid, however there are extenuating circumstances that have lead to this last minute change. The combination of a late change of venue for the Victorian Criterium Championships and the late moving of the Mansfield Tour to […]

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.

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 […]
