Dunlop Road, 13th December 2014

Dunlop Road attracted big entries in all the grades. The supplementary A grade race is proving popular. It is giving some B grade riders an opportunity to step up and try their hand in the ultimate grade while the big guns are racing in the ‘A grade Teams’ race and trickledown effect was seen in other grades.

All prize money was donated to a very worthwhile charity, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. The Wednesday racing at the Loop also collected the prize money to create a substantial sum for cause.

Casey Fields, 6th December 2014

For the second week in a row at Casey Fields it was a reasonable turn out to try and master the tough conditions. It was windy (perfectly normal) from the start and just got stronger as the racing unfolded. Breakaways were rare and from what is known, only one, E grade, succeeded. Those that tried were left dangling to tire and then slipped back into the bunch through fatigue or as is the case of C grade, a lack of understanding over the bell lap that allowed the bunch to sprint and catch the unsuspecting escapee.

 

The final placing’s were decided by bunch sprints with heavy legs. Next week the flat track of Dunlop Road will bring some respite.

Casey Fields, 29th November 2014

You can never be too sure of the weather in Melbourne while you thought that Casey would always be windy. Saturday was probably the least windy for the year, the racing tactics that are usually employed by and large were in the jersey pocket and it showed. Grades that are normally aggressive, were riding slow while others were getting stuck in. E grade passed B grade, some C graders went to the front before the bell. It’s a wonder the first aider didn’t have some heart problems to treat. And in another grade, it was just a procession, until the last lap.
