Has spring really arrived at last? The days are lengthening and it’s a little easier to get out for an early ride. Saturday was a grand spring day at Yarra Glen, as this week’s race reports confirm, and all grades from A to F had double-digit bunches. Fourth place felt like a win to Jean-Philippe Leclercq, and Paul Firth came 4th (I’m sure there’s a pun in there, but Paul has probably heard it before). Read on to find out more.
This week the age-based Club Road Championships take place at Eildon. It’s a rare chance to measure yourself against other riders in your age group, rather than in grades decided by the handicapper. Best of luck to all.
