4 John Chesmar Memorial Trophy HRR

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

Tonight, being the first handicapped road race of the season, meant that the riders were competing for the John Chesmar Memorial Trophy. John Chesmar is very fondly remembered as a cyclist who was passionate about Handicapped Road Races, and was always head down in the right place ready to start the sprint finish at the end of any handicapped race.

This race began at the corner of Rangitumai Road and raced out to Mauriceville and back to finish over the first bluff on Rangitumai Road. Riders rapidly discovered that the going was going to be tough as they were racing into a reasonably strong head-wind all the way to Mauriceville. Along with the rolling nature of the course, some tired legs (3 days of riding over Labour weekend), a few not yet fully race-fit riders, and some slightly rusty racing skills, the outcome was always going to be that a number riders were spat from most of the bunches before the turn at Mauriceville.

The handicapper was generous to the limit bunch, and those who had survived the rigours of the terrain and wind, went to the line for a sprint finish which was taken out by Mark Halewood, with Rod Sutherland and Peter Jones hard on their tail. Caleb Roberts did exceptionally well to be up there in the sprint, as, being a junior rider, he is racing on restricted gearing. First woman home was Michelle McCabe and first junior woman was Sydney Blackburn. Fastest man overall was Mark Langlands, and fastest woman was Lesley Mouat. Special mention goes to Katherine Domanski who completed her first full course race tonight, which took considerable grit and determination.

For the Short Course riders, who turned at Jackson’s Line, Judy Brown took line honours, having managed to escape off the front of her competitors. In second place was Karen Blade followed closely by another junior boy, Jono Didsbury. Special mention to Lucy Stevens who was competing in her first club race tonight.

Next week is another Handicapped Road Race around the Millers Road circuit, starting at Parkvale Hall.
