Dunlop Road, 23rd November 2013

Old faithful; Dunlop Road, the most popular of our venues and although the weather did its best to deter the numbers it was still a good turnout, and a good day for racing.  Eighty riders across the six grades made for some tight and interesting racing whilst the threatening rain held off.

Casey Fields, 16th November 2013

One-hundred minutes in the Casey wind, it wasn’t going to be easy and just to add that little bit more suffering there were two intermediate sprints that carried enough points to influence the results.  A-grade were given a demonstration on how to ride a teams’ race with the Celtic trio rolling across the line well ahead of the rest of the depleted field.  B-grade were tested by Ian Milner & Phil Thompson who stretched the relatively small field in a race of attrition.  The remaining races saw riders succumb and fall away but the main bunches finishing together.

Yarra Glen 9th  November 2013

Another small turnout; only 50 spread across five grades, c-grade making up nearly half that number with twenty, the uncertainty in the weather undoubtedly the reason.  Building works around the pony club had left dirt around the bottom end of the course and laying it thick on the double right from Yarraview into Glenview, A massive effort by Ross Tinkler and Dave McCormack cleared the worst so that we could race safely, so long as it stayed dry.  And stay dry it did, all grades enjoying good racing conditions and a tail wind up the hill.  The downside of the tailwind was a head wind to the finish and the downside of the day was a fall in the a-grade sprint, fortunately the rider involved walked away having kissed the bitumen and given it a bit of lip.

Casey Fields, 2nd November 2013

It wouldn’t be Casey Fields if there wasn’t any wind and we weren’t disappointed.  Not the gales of past but enough to make riding alone a tough day in the saddle – a sentiment obviously shared by most in attendance with the lower grades coming in together.  The team’s race ensuring activity in the a-grade race, a series of attacks and counter attacks before finally a trio got a gap that they were able to hold to the end – with a little help from their friends.  A strong attack involving Ian Smith and Ross Tinkler saw the b-grade race shatter, the pair racing for top honours with Phil Thompson chasing down a lone Ray Russo to claim third.

Brave Dave was there on the day and has uploaded a few images from the day.
