Casey Fields, 16th December 2017 – Christmas Handicap

The final race of the year was an exciting chase with a-grade fading slower than the lower grades and eventually running them down late on the last lap.  Reports on how it all unfolded in this week’s newsletter.

Casey Fields, 9th December 2017 – GSR

The wind failed to disappoint, the club wisdom to shorten the lap met with mixed emotions; less time into the wind but a shorter race (? ed.).  Interesting racing across all grades, the brave rewarded in some races, the brave destined to be chased down and relegated to the also rans in others.  A full set of reports to enlighten y’all on the way each grade’s race unfolded.  Enjoy.

National Boulevard, 23rd December 2017 – Dave Ryan – interclub GSR

Unfortunately no racing this week due to forecast extreme weather but results from mid-week and an article on club member Rod Goodes – 87 years old and still turning the pedals competitively.

Garfield, 25th November 2017 – GSR

A new venue to venture to, no further than Casey Fields for most, pan flat and not quite so windy.  It was a small contingent that made the journey in the heat of last Saturday to the start where some solid racing ensued and efforts rewarded – Phil Smith winning a-grade in a solo breakaway, b-grade coming down to a two rider battle for the big money, c-grade wasn’t unsurprisingly decided in a bunch kick as were the d & e-grade races albeit after a bit of attrition out on the road.  A couple of reports in this week’s edition to fill in the finer details of the B & D grade races.

Dunlop Road, 18th November 2017

Back at Dunlop road after a bit of a break and its popularity has not waned over the winter.  The numbers weren’t at record levels but they were the best we’ve seen at a race for a long time, the bigger fields making for some great racing across all grades.  Despite the numbers present there’s only reports from either end of the spectrum.

Casey Fields, 11th November 2017, GSR

Back to back at Casey Fields this week, a later start being the point of difference from the norm.  This didn’t deter the intensity of the racing with some strong performances across the full compliment of grades.

Casey Fields, 4th November 2017 – GSR

Well, the whole running in reverse didn’t work out too well the wind was still a factor, a-grade slowly disintegrated, b-grade mainly held it together, c-grade did hold it together for a bunch sprint, d and e grades fought battles of their own and the small crew in f-grade made the most of each other’s company to get through the hour before slogging it out on the last lap.  Read the reports in this week’s newsletter.

Thornton, 28th October 2017 – Royce Bennett memorial handicap

With little wind and a flat circuit limit looked good on paper and at the half-way point limit looked good.  Check out the reports in the newsletter to see just how good limit looked.

Jindivick, 21st October 2018 – Club Road Championships

It was cloudy and cool but fine, apart from the odd drop, at Jindivick last Saturday for the 2017 Club Road Championships. It might have appeared from the low numbers on the start line that many of Saturday’s races were decided already. This is a perennial factor in an age-based fixture, but it always seems a shame. Congratulations to all who did race, and especially to those who may have turned up despite having low expectations of getting among the medals. All did themselves proud, and the standard of the racing was high.

Arthurs Creek, 14th October 2017 – GSR

Arthurs Creek turned on a cracking day for racing – sunny, mild and barely a wisp of wind to speak of.  Forty-two riders spread over five grades meant there was no hiding at the edges and scope for race plan development in the middle grades.  This week’s newsletter has reports from most grades with accompanying images courtesy of John Williams, multiple reports from a few providing different perspectives.
