After a week of wet, conditions were ideal for the final 2 stages of the Geelong Cycling Club Tour at Eastern Gardens. All riders did a 1 lap prologue followed by a Kermesse. A break from the norm saw riders do a clockwise lap of the Eastern Gardens course. Things were tight in all grades with only a handful of seconds separating the riders. Phil O’Neil (C Grade), Daniel Hall (B Grade) & Chris Fry (A Grade) all taking line honors. In the Juniors Brayden Maurer took the win just 0.265 seconds ahead of Noah Copeland with Jacob Dynes a little over a second back. There was some great racing in the multi lap event in all grades. Racing was […]

Road Racing Season Kick Off The 2014 Road Racing Season kicked off with the Waurn Ponds scratch race on Saturday. Great weather and solid numbers in each grade saw some good racing. The juniors welcomed a few new members to their ranks, a great testimony to the work done by Danni. Light winds saw bunch finishes in each grade, Mark Turnley taking out C Grade and potentially earning himself a grade promotion. Tony Butler used his finishing kick honed on the track over the summer to win B & Seb Wild taking a close victory in A grade.

It is with regret that we have had to postpone the season start a week. Due to road works around Paraparap the road condition will be unsuitable to safely conduct a road race. The season start will be on the 29th of March at Waurn Ponds. The Annual 20 that has always opened the road racing season and will now be held on the 3rd of May in lieu of the Hill Climbing championships in Lorne. Keep an eye on the event calendar on the web site for full event details.
President’s Report It is again my pleasure to present my President’s Report. A successful year is difficult to quantify however I shall attempt to justify my contention that we have indeed enjoyed pleasing progress across the full range of endeavours our Club pursues Juniors: Under the guidance of our Junior Co-Ordinator Danielle Bridger and supervision of Club Coaches, Craig McCartney (road) and Oliver King (track) our membership has continued to grow to near forty, in fact to a point where another Coach will be necessary to cope with numbers attending Tuesday training at Belmont Island. Particularly pleasing is the number of girls attending training and racing, still a distinct minority but a truly dramatic change in GCC experience. Women: Ever […]
