2020 Club Criterium Championships – Judds Rd.

This year the Criterium Champs were held on a new subdivision off Judds Road. Big thanks to the Westwood property Group for facilitating this. The track was 800 metres of very smooth asphalt and with perfect weather conditions made for an enjoyable evenings racing.

B Grade (combined B, C & D grades) were off first riding for 25 minutes plus 2 laps with a sprint for points every 4th lap. Over the course of 25 minutes and with the sprints the group soon split up leading a small bunch to compete for points and the finish line. No one rider was able to break away however Caleb Roberts managed to take enough sprints to win the grade.

Finally the combined A and B Grade were off for 35 minutes plus 2 laps. This race was quickly dominated by Mark Langlands who, after lapping the field once, paused briefly to draw breath before setting off and lapping the field a second time. The main bunch showing a curious reluctance to chase the lone rider down with the exception of D Simmonds who hung on for several laps before a mechanical forced him to pull over.
