Casey Fields, 2 June 2018 – GSR

A round of graded scratch races at Casey Fields last Saturday. Good conditions, good numbers – a good day’s racing. No reports from Saturday but a bit of a look at Wednesday crits at the Loop instead, with an emphasis on women riders. And this week’s ‘high pass in Europe’ photo is …

Gruyere, 19 May 2018 – Toy Bricks Toughen Up series, race 2

Last Saturday we ‘Toughened Up’ some more with graded scratch races at Gruyere. It’s a pretty venue, but repeated ascents of that hill are always hard. This newsletter contains results and race reports, progress scores after two races of the Toy Bricks Toughen Up series, a communiqué from the Blue Sky committee and more.

Yarra Glen, 12 May 2018 – Toy Bricks Toughen Up series, race 1

The four-race Toughen Up series, sponsored by Toy Bricks in Bayswater, got off to a successful start last Saturday with a round of graded scratch races at Yarra Glen. Nearly 60 riders braved the up-and-down kermesse course, and most would agree it was a little easier with a tailwind up Glenview Road – easier, but still tough.

Casey Fields, 5 May 2018 – Club Criterium Championships

Last Saturday’s 2018 Club Criterium Championships at Casey Fields attracted 62 riders, including a big field of 17 in Men 55–59. Conditions were kind – Casey kind of kind, with only a moderate wind. Well done to all who took part – to the winners and minor placegetters, and also to those from lower grades who might have known they were in for a pasting but took to the start line regardless. There are results, reports and photos in this week’s newsletter.

60 km handicap, Garfield, 14 April 2018

The early call to cancel last Saturday’s handicap at Garfield on the strength of the weather forecast was well justified by the wild conditions that swept across the state on Saturday afternoon. It’s looking better for this Saturday at Dunlop Road – fingers crossed! There’s an Easter’s tale and details of exclusive member deals on new bikes inside.

Casey Fields, 31 March 2018 – GSR

The Easter long weekend saw a round of graded scratch races at Casey Fields and plenty of action for Eastern members at the AVCC National Championships at Maryborough. Tuesday night racing at METEC is over for another season, but Wednesday morning crits at the Loop, off the Boulevard in Kew, go all year. Results and a report from Peter Gray at Casey are inside.
