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, […]

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 […]
