2017 Club Road Championships

Maude was the venue for the 2017 Club Road Championships. A late change in course to avoid the overly aggressive wild life this time of year saw rider’s complete laps of the tough Maude/ Steiglitz/ She Oaks loop. Small but quality fields in all grades hit the start line and despite the testing hills bunches remained largely together. A grade & for the title of club road champion was raced over 4 laps and despite a solid tempo no rider was able to make a decisive break or split. The quality of the riders and evenness of their abilities ensued that the races was going to come down to a bunch kick. Coming around the final bend to the line,

Spring Eve Handicap

The Spring Eve Handicap at Point Henry kicked off 5 minutes early in what could be a first for GCC. As is typical for the exposed Point Henry course, the wind continued to build as the 45K handicap was raced.

But when when 2nd & 3rd scratch combined to form a well organised bunch it looked like Scratch may have their work cut out to catch them. After the combined 2nd & 3rd scratch bunches found the front of the race with two laps left it looked to

Tom Ovens taking the win by a small margin over inform rider Trent Clifford. In B grade Stephan Van der Bruggen lead by example for the rest of his Geelong Performance Crew by taking his long awaited maiden cycling race victory. After some long range solo moves early
