Eildon, 23rd May 2015

Another glorious day north of the range, clear skies, warm sun, no wind, no traffic, unfortunately a poor turnout.  Despite the low numbers there was still some good racing reports on A, C & E-grades in this week’s newsletter along with the specs of your new bike – an Audi or Aston Martin.

Yarra Glen, 16th May 2015

A classic winter’s day, mild and calm providing ideal racing conditions for the big turnout for this popular circuit.

Only a couple of race reports but if a picture paints a thousand words this week’s edition near rivals War and Peace.  Additional words on this year’s Alpine Classic from Nick Tapp and a run down of the new circuit at Newham.

Peter Gray can transport a couple of people to Eildon this Saturday with the trailer, please email: petergray.ebserve@gmail.com

Seymour, 9th May 2015 – Athletic Soft Tissue handicap

Full report from the Athletics Soft Tissue handicap, a small race that was fiercely competed under grey skies.  The handicapper doing a great job but his work undone by a few late withdrawals and a committed scratch bunch that must have had a party to get to picking up all and sundry in a show of power on their way to a clean sweep of the podium.  Check Rob’s report for scratch’s point of view.

Casey Fields, 2nd May 2015 – Club Criterium Championships

A mixed bag rolled up for the age-based championships, the ideal conditions of the previous two weeks did not and it was back to the same old same old.  A gathering northerly making the finish straight a slog and ensuring a hard day out for the lower grade riders up against their higher grade compatriots and almost certainly guaranteeing scattered bunches.

A bumper newsletter this week; race reports from the club championships, race report from the Forrest 6-hour, insights into the handicapper’s role, a write-up on the sponsor of this week’s race and tips on how to ride it.
