Racing Wrap Up

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.

NRS Tour of Perth

Two GCC members had some good results at the recent Tour of Perth. Nick Squillari & Oliver Kent-Spark survived the opening crit, which from all reports was an achievement in itself. A storming rider up a tough finishing climb by Oli earnt him 6th place on stage 2, an outstanding result.

Final GC results, Oli 14th place, Nick 40th. Well done gents in a 150+ starting field.
