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.

METEC, 8th June 2013

After last week, an ideal change in the weather provided great winter riding conditions for the METEC criterium.  A good contingent of riders across six grades saw another entertaining and competitive race day on this popular circuit.

Casey Fields, 1st June 2013

Near record rainfall saw the committee cancel the day’s racing, this hasn’t detered our newsletter editor from  pulling something together to keep you informed on what’s going on and what’s coming up.

Yarra Junction – Piedmont, 25th May 2013

A damp morning, the clouds resting low on the hills, it wasn’t looking too bright and this may have been the reason for the low numbers in attendance. The 72k race distance and the minor obstacle of ‘the bump’ may have also had some impact. As the 1:30 race start time approached the clouds lifted, some sun shine even made it to the road and being an a-grade teams’ race (the first of the winter series) it was a not too shabby collection of lycra clad individuals that gathered outside the Yarra Junction Secondary College for our return to this circuit.

Athletic Soft Tissue Handicap

Almost ideal conditions saw the most of the early bunches come together over the last lap and hold off the scratch and second scratch bunches to contest one of the biggest finishes the club has seen.  A brave move by John Thomas a kilometre from the line paid off as he held on for the win ahead of the 40+ strong bunch that were breathing down his neck.

Gruyere, 11th May 2013

The Gruyere kermesse is a tough race circuit, with one particularly challenging elevation change, as shown by this image from Strava . The weather was warm, with some head wind and cross wind issues which made the course a bit tricky for some. A good turn out and some good racing followed
