Yarra Glen, 20th June 2015

It was cool and overcast and a little bit misty but that didn’t dissuade the members from turning out in force, an a-grade team’s race bolstering that grade’s numbers with strong showings in the next few grades and enough to warrant an E and an F grade.  And as usual the talk around the eskies post-race was that a good race was had by near all.

Casey Fields, 6th June 2015

Just read it.

I think it was a better day to ref than to race, most grades providing some interesting racing, aggression across most grades saw races split, riders get dropped, races come back together again and riders (occasionally) get back on (some cutting corners).  The majority of races, deservingly, won by small breakaway groups.  and the conditions – well, it was Casey Fields.

Some good race reports in this week’s newsletter and an insight into one of our long-time a-grade riders in Rob Amos – well worth the read.

Newham, 30th May 2015

A hit out at the circuit where we’ll be running our VVCC Open event; another hike and another low turnout, but that didn’t deter the racing with some aggressive riding and some surprise results.  Most grades are represented in this week’s newsletter along with a feature on Royce Bennett, a great clubman and one who is remembered in the race that bears his name.
