METEC – Christmas Handicap, 21st December 2013

Keen to get a last ride in before gorging themselves over the festive season it was a good turnout for racing at METEC this week, sizable fields across all grades with enough that the club had to split the afternoon into two races; A, C & E followed by B, D & F.  And those were just the qualifiers, the real race followed – the Christmas Handicap, another sterling job by the handicapper saw it almost come together on the line, a determined f-grade trio just staying ahead of the chase that a-grade joined on the last corner.

Thanks to all of those who have made racing possible throughout the year, the committee members who organise the calendar, the permits, the roster and the membership in general for both assisting the running of the races by acting as marshals and for participating in a safe, courteous and friendly manner.

All the best for the season and the new year and see you in 2014.

Dunlop Road, 14th December 2013

Top conditions, big fields, a-grade the biggest race of the afternoon and a fast one to boot, you can read one version of the events in this week’s newsletter.  B-grade was again a hard affair, constant attacks seeing little breaks up the road most laps with the bunch chasing hard.

Casey Fields, 7th December 2013

Another big field in c-grade, d & b grades not far behind and the distribution curve continued its form through a and the lower grades.  In all 75 members turned out to be greeted by relatively mild conditions – mild for Casey.  A southerly breeze enough to encourage use of more than one gear whilst giving opportunity to the brave, a breeze that picked up through the afternoon.

There were some good rides in b-grade with multiple breaks going and being brought back, unfortunately I had my head down trying to hang onto my bunch and can offer no more than that.  C-grade did what c-grade usually do, that race ending in a big (well behaved) bunch sprint.  You can read all about d-grade’s race in the newsletter, whilst you’ll have to go to the source to find out what happened in the e & f grade races.

Casey Fields, 30th November 2013

Tour of Bright, inclement conditions, it wasn’t looking to be a big turnout and early on numbers were slow but by 2:00 we had a good turnout and some competitive racing was had across all grades, the wind costing a few their places in the peloton and proving ally to the few brave souls who took their chances.
