METEC, 25th January 2014

Tour down Under, Alpine Classic, long weekend, only the weather was in favour of a good turnout.  And despite the wind (no this wasn’t Casey Fields) the weather, and the lack of recent racing, was enough to get semi-reasonable fields on the day – 70 odd riders turning up to compete over the six races on offer.

The ride of the day going to James Alymer who, wearing Croydon Cycleworks colours, lapped a non-too-shabby b-grade field.  We may be seeing a bit more of James’ lanky frame in a-grade this year.

Casey Fields, 18th January 2014

With the Tour Down Under on in Adelaide the numbers were down, especially in the higher grades, – only six starters for a-grade, and it was their turn for an elimination crit – a fast and furious warm up to the hour’s racing to follow.  It was windy in the car park, it was worse on the track – breakaways were not going to be the flavour of the day, attrition the likely scenario.  Despite the conditions and the elimination race a-grade was intense.  B-grade was much the same with a few trying their luck off the front throughout the race.  C-Grade, there was no money on the likely end result but that didn’t stop Peter Web trying to buck the norm – all to no avail, a bunch kick deciding the placings.  D-grade, another big grade, after losing a few early stayed together to the end as did e & f grades.

Dunlop Road, 11th January 2014

The conditions at Dunlop Road were ideal for racing, not too warm and little wind. A big field filled the A grade teams race and this made for high speed and many attacks.

The other grades were also well subscribed and hotly contested with attempts to get away in every grade being shut down by individuals or by bunches countering the attacks. From the sidelines it was entertaining and clearly enjoyed by the combatants.

Casey Fields, 4th January 2014

I know it’s clichéd but it was a tough-man’s day at Casey on Saturday, the threatening conditions and the tail end of the holiday season saw a very small turnout across most grades making the racing even tougher with nowhere to hide.
