Don Road Hill Climb, 22nd September 2013

For most of the morning it looked like being a waterlogged event but miraculously the rain held off at the start for most riders to complete their short but explosive ride up Don Road. The bridge at the top marked the end of their effort and a chance to get the heart beat back to something resembling normal. Time trials are tough and uphill time trials are incredibly tough. Congratulations to all the riders who took part and well done to the place getters.

Casey Fields, 14th September 2013

With a few away at Lorne for the Amy Gillett there were small numbers at Casey Fields – 62.  Melbourne turned on the weather for Amy and we benefitted at Casey with some of the stillest conditions ever experienced.  But the air was heavy and regardless of where you were it felt like a headwind, but it wasn’t and that enabled most bunches to stay together for the one-hour’s (give or take a bit – like half an hour) races.

Lake Learmonth, 7th September 2013

Seventy riders spread themselves across the five grades that were out to contest this friendly (non-official) interclub.  The Eureka club managed to scratch together four riders to bolster the a-grade teams race and had good representation in the other races.  Ballarat turned on the weather, well, it didn’t rain (much), the wind kept it at bay.  Yes there was a bit of a breeze but it made the flat course a strong-person’s course.  Local knowledge played a part in some races with attacks at the left-right dog-leg stretching the bunches and putting paid to some riders races.

The Eureka Veterans Cycling Club turned on the hospitality, I am assured the caramel slices were heavenly – almost ‘to die for’ but I can’t verify that as some people had more than their fair share and I missed out.  The profiteroles were also lauded but again somebody was tonkin’ them down and despite searching them out all I could find was an empty plate with a few chocolate coated crumbs.

The racing was great, the post-race activities friendly.  This will be an annual event and one worth marking in your calendar as a ‘to do’ race.

Yarra Glen, 31st August 2013

The good weather brought out the numbers and it was near on eighty starters that raced over 5 grades.  The racing was tough and hard-fought, James Steward managing to hold onto Tom Leaper through the last six laps of the a-grade race and then outsprint him for the win, one of the senior statesmen of the club in Martin Peeters was able to take on and beat all comers, regardless of age, in the b-grade race.
