Eildon, 22nd October 2016 – Royce Bennett memorial handicap.

Last week’s Royce Bennett Memorial Handicap at Eildon was epic in a number of ways. Registrations were low, it must be said, and a number of those who registered did not make it to the start line after two accidents on the Black Spur (neither involving Eastern members) closed the Maroondah Highway for several hours. The windy and chilly conditions turned to rain towards the end of the race, and some riders were still shivering when the sun reappeared to shine on the post-race presentation. But, as the old saying goes, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Everyone who competed demonstrated more than the usual toughness. Well done to all who did so, and a particular thank you also to all those marshals and others who helped out on the day. Enjoy the race reports.

Arthurs Creek, 15th October 2016 – Graded Scratch Races

Arthurs Creek last Saturday was a windy place. Average speeds were high on the return leg from Strathewen; heading out was another matter, especially on a couple of the bends near the orchard. Race reports are inside.

Seymour, 24th September 2016 – Pinnacle Cycles Team Time Trial

The second annual Eastern Veterans Team Time Trial took place last Saturday at Avenel, near Seymour. The reports that follow speak for the high regard this event has earned in very short time. Thanks once again to the organisers and sponsors, including major sponsor Pinnacle Cycles,.
If you rode the TTT on Saturday, there is an excellent chance you were captured on photo.  John Williams is pretty sure he got all riders.  A number of his photos appear in the newsletter, the remainder available here.
