Gruyere 10th August 2013

Finally the sun shone on those who chose to race this Saturday.  59 riders in total set themselves against each other and the testing Gruyere circuit.  It was good to see a few of the summer boys in the start list and some returning from injury in the results.

Rob Graham memorial ITT, Yarra Junction 20th July 2013

The race conditions for the Time Trial were wet and cold, but fortunately, no wind to speak of. It was wet for the warm-up if it could be called that and it didn’t get any better as each of the 70+ riders made their way out towards Powelltown and back to the finish.

A special thanks to the officials on the day who stood in the cold and wet to ensure that those whoe chose to take the test of truth could do so safely.

Casey Fields 6th July 2013,

Twas a cold, damp and windy day at Casey Fields which probably went a long way to explaining the small numbers in attendance.  61 riders across six grades in tough conditions made for some tough racing and some epic performances.  B-grade seeing two near-half hour solo efforts, Anthony Gullace and then Rob Harris making the bunch work for their sprint.

Gruyere 29th June 2013

Near perfect conditions for racing saw 71 riders over five grades taking on what many considered to be our toughest road circuit – 12 times up the Killara Road climb for the top grade riders enough to test the best.

Yarra Glen, 22nd June 2013

It was a beautiful crisp winter’s day sun shining on the scenic country Yarra Valley that greeted the 79 who sarted the Eastern Vets Yarra Glen Kermesse.  An afternoon of competitive racing, some grades holding on to finish in a bunch kick, others where aggressive riding was rewarded and a breakaway being successful.

Arthurs Creek 15 June 2013

Almost ideal conditions to race; cool – not cold, dry but not parching, although a brief light shower an hour or so in did cause some concern on the drop to Nankervis Road for the 60+ riders who competed over the five grades represented, but with no incidents resulting it was a successful day’s racing.  Again c-grade was the biggest bunch with a sizable peloton,the remainder evenly populated across the remaining grades.

Brave Dave was there on the day and has uploaded a few images from the day.
