Yarra Glen, 21st February 2015

Unfortunately racing was cancelled due to a forecast, and attained, 37C but this hasn’t stopped Janita from putting together another bumper issue of news and views relevant to us all.

A great profile of Neil Cartledge and a comprehensive report on the State Criterium Championship with some great images provided by David Anderson.

Dunlop Road, 14th February 2015

Rain at seven, clear by eleven – that’s how the concreter’s adage goes and so it was on Saturday.  The early morning showers and the weather bureau’s  lack of conviction maybe kept the numbers down but those that made the journey enjoyed near perfect conditions for racing.

The a-grade race saw a big field fight it out with breakaways brought back in time for a mass sprint that sent the officials on the line to the iPad to determine the placegetters.  A brave, determined late effort by Steve Short in C-grade nearly caught the group by surprise but a lap too far as he was swamped 100m after receiving the bell.  You can read all the news and more in this week’s newsletter.

Almost extreme conditions had some suggesting we shorten the circuit so the riders wouldn’t have to race so far.  So we did, somebody parking a car at the second cut-through to divert riders around the bend and back along the back straight.  And to ensure the riders didn’t have to ride too far race times were kept to under an hour, even so it was still a tough day, a hot wind making for very draining conditions.

This edition is a bumper Women’s edition – I hope you enjoy reading about three EVCC women who are achieving pretty remarkable things in their cycling sport. I am certainly inspired by them. So what are your adventures – please contribute a story. Future bumper editions may include ‘safety’; ‘mens’; ‘nutrition’.

We are introducing ‘image of the week’ to grace the front cover of all editions. I encourage you to submit an image. Maybe some healthy competition to be featured on page one! This week’s image was taken by Mark Edwards at last week’s Tuesday night’s METEC race, it shows the lone rider Chris Norbury being dwarfed by the presence of the ambulance that was attending the fallen Frank Nyhuis.

Mark took over a hundred photos on the night, and they are fantastic. I have featured a few more on page two.
