Hell of the Surfcoast

Not the hell like conditions expected for the 2017 running of the “Hell of the Surfcoast”, but testing all the same with the usual corrugations and loose dirt on the last section keeping riders honest. Good numbers in all grades and lots of attacking made for a great morning’s racing.

A small but high quality A grade field saw some of the best local off rode talent take on the traditional roadies. 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 on in C grade that didn’t stick, the eventual winner probably came as no surprise. Combining her extensive off road experience and all round cycling pedigree Jess Douglas broke away on the final dirt section to take a clear victory.

D grade combined some of the up and coming junior talent in the club take on some of our more experienced athletes. In the end Mark Woodhead took the win in a victory of the more mature riders.

Special mention to the Junior riders who race over the dirt for the first time this year. Other than saying it felt like riding on flat tires, all enjoyed the experience, Fraser Clark crossing the line first.

Special mention to 9 year old Ines Morton who completed her first road race. A tough initiation doing the full 18K circuit including the dirt sections.

Thanks to all the race day marshals that help make it a safe days racing.
