Race 15, Upper Plain Criterium

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

Tonight’s race was fast and furious and became a race of attrition (or was it death – either dead legs or dead heart and lungs!). Forty riders presented themselves to start the pre-New Zealand Cycle Classic  – i.e. our ACM club mass start road race around the same circuit as the NZCC boys raced afterwards.

Right from the start the pace was on, and it was a case of can you handle the pace, hang on and manage to sprint back on out of each of the corners.  For many the answer to that question was “no, I can’t”, so the front bunch quickly became a bunch of 18 riders and then two visitors (Christian Rush and John Mudgway) managed to attack and escape off the front of the race in a breakaway. By the time the peloton crossed the line at the 30 minute stage there were 16 riders still chasing the 2. On the final circuit the gap closed considerably and at the finish the first of the main peloton were a matter of 2 second away from catching the breakaway.

Congratulations to Christian and John for success in their breakaway. Congratulations to Derek Roberts, Tom McCallum and Phil Sutherland at the pointy end of the chase. Congratulations to Derek Cox and Peter Jones – fastest tandem. Congratulations to Belinda Fuller, fastest woman. Commiserations to all those riders in the front peloton whose legs died on the final circuit!

The main hard luck story of tonight’s race goes to Liam Moore who punctured on the first lap! A lesson in making sure the bike is race ready prior to the start, maybe.. perhaps?

Quite a few starters found themselves being lapped by the main peloton during the race. On this occasion the lapped riders were not eliminated and so remained in the race, and have not been removed from the results even though they may have raced a lap less than others.

Whilst all our riders recovered from their exertions, they were able to appreciate the speed and ability of our NZCC riders. Good luck for the rest of the race boys. Keep it safe and race well. I’m sure many of us will be on a hill to cheer you on during the next 5 days.

Next week is the next of our Club Championships – the Individual Time Trial, so lets see how much ‘bling’ we can find before then!

Race 14, Kourarau Loop, HRR

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

The first race of the second half of the season began in almost perfect weather conditions, which led to quicker times than last year for many riders. But make no mistake the 40 riders who presented themselves to the starter were all in for a tough ride with this course, billed as one to kick start the return to fitness after too much Christmas/New Year indulgence! As the results show all the bunches split, most long before they crossed the finish line – Kourarau is a hill that is renown for splitting bunches, and at least one of the bunches had split before they reached the base of the climb.

Tonight congratulations go to Terry Blackburn taking line honours for the full course with Donna Burkhart the first woman to cross the line, hot on Terry’s heals. Congratulations to Ben Knight who just out-climbed Mark Langlands to be the fastest man and to Lesley Mouat who was the fastest woman on the long course. Congratulations also to Sydney Blackburn for taking out the short course and to Ethan Hayes the youngest rider on the night.

Many thanks to marshals and race officials and also to David and Lyn Howden for hosting a fabulous ‘after match’ supper at their home.

Next week will be slightly different with our club race being held slightly earlier but over the same course as Jorge’s ‘big boys’ (NZ Classic Tour) starting outside Mitre 10 on Ngaumutawa Road. This is a great chance for everyone to have a good hit out themselves and then stand back and appreciate the speed and strength of those Pro’s!

Race 13 Miller Road, Admiral Hill, HRR

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

Thirty five riders presented themselves to the starter for the final race of 2017. This race has been much anticipated over a new course. The full course riders headed south from Gladstone Church, turning on Longbush, then racing back and being turned left for the short sharp climb up the steep side of Millers road, and then after a short decent, turning around once more to race back towards Gladstone, where the final right turn headed riders towards the finish at the first summit of Admiral Hill. The short course riders, also headed south, and turned on Longbush, but avoided the climbs on Millers Road, before the Admiral Hill climb.

The weather this evening was cooler but there was a strong gusty wind that played its part, along with the challenging climbs, in isolating several riders from their start groups. In fact none of the start groups remained intact right to the finish. As the finish line came into view small groups, often just two or three riders sprinted for line honours.

Congratulations tonight to Darren Sullivan and Caleb Roberts, winners of the full course and short course respectively.  Also congratulations to Belinda Fuller – first and fastest woman, and Ben Knight – fastest man on the night.

Many thanks to all whom have made racing possible in the first half of the season, in particular Mark Jerling and Kevin MacKay for setting the course each week, to Brent Sowry our race manager and club captain, to Toni McCallum for timekeeping and to all who have done their share of marshalling duties.

We wish you all a Happy Christmas and good start to 2018.  Our first race for 2018 is Tuesday 9th January and is a Handicapped Road Race around the Kourarau Circuit.

Race 12 – Carrington GRR

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

Tonight was the challenge of a Graded Road Race around the Carrington Circuit with a hill top finish. That hill always caused issues in the grades – it may not be very long, but it is a difficult climb that has the capability of splitting bunches apart. In graded races the bunches don’t mix, so if you slip out the back door of one bunch you are not allowed to work with any other bunch that might catch you.

Despite the challenge of the final hillclimb there was a couple of close sprint finishes. Congratulations to Grade winners.Tonights results are in grade order.

Next week is the final pre-Christmas race, that finishes up Admiral! See you all there.

Just before the full results are revealed, another reminder that prior to the first race in January, EVERY ride must renew their Cycling New Zealand licence. Please visit the Cycling New Zealand website, login and follow the prompts.

Criterion Championship Race

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

Tonight was the first of the 2017-2018 Club Championship Races.  ‘Hot’ was the word for tonight’s race. The weather was hot, so was the pace of the racing and the sprints were hotly contested throughout the races. Unfortunately only three women presented themselves to the starter, so they raced alongside fifteen B-Grade men. Nineteen men contested the A-Grade men’s race.

The pace was on right from the gun in each of the races, which caught out a few riders who then had little or no hope of managing to close the gap that had opened up in front of them. Caleb Roberts found this out to his cost as did Andrew Linton.

In the first race, amongst the women, Donna proved her superior sprint power to win all but two of the sprints. Whilst in the B-grade men, Liam Moore proved the strongest, with Steve Brown in second place.

In the A-Grade men’s race, Ben Knight took a flyer right from the start, but the peloton reeled him back in for a while. It wasn’t long before four riders managed to engineer a breakaway – Ben Knight, Mark Langlands, Darren Southon and Derek Cox and Peter Jones on the tandem. This looked like a breakaway that was going all the way to the finish, however, as often happens a wheel was dropped and Ben and Mark had a gap that was never closed, and continued to grow right through to the finish. This dynamic duo continued with a demonstration of power and speed and in the process lapped many riders.

In the end we must congratulate Mark Langlands who retains his Club Championship title and also to Donna Burkhart who wins her first Club Championship Criterion title.

Next week is a graded road race over the Carrington Circuit.

Race 10 -Whangaehu – Bideford return, HRR

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

Tonight’s race proved to be a popular one. So despite the number of folks with ‘Taupo’ or ‘Not Taupo’ weary legs (long rides in the weekend!) 59 riders presented themselves to the starter, 5 on the short course and 54 taking on the full course over the rolling Wairarapa landscape. Riders started into a head-cross cutter breeze and faced a number of gentle rolling hills on the way out and what most people consider to be one quite testing longer climb on the return journey. These things combined to cause quite a few riders to disappear out of their bunch via the open back door (why does it always seem to get left open!). Tonight’s results reflect that many of the riders who left on limit worked well together to maintain their time advantage over the chasing bunches, whilst the scratch bunch didn’t have the legs to close the gap to the front end of break.

Line honours and winner of tonight’s full course is Emily Lutyens – welcome back from your OE, a great way to mark your return to racing! Once again credit to Caleb Roberts who also rode a great race but lost the sprint to Emily tonight. The fastest woman this evening over the long course is Belinda Fuller and the fastest man Ben Knight – two names that are popping up on a regular basis in the results!

Of the short course riders, the Tandem, ridden by Rod and Jenni Sutherland proved the strongest contender tonight.

Next Week: the long awaited and great fun of a ‘Crit’ – Venue is the Masterton Motorplex.

Note: No official marshals required – one bunch on the race-track at a time and those not out racing assist the race manager ‘spotting’ for sprint points.

Race 9, 2-up Time Trial

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

The ‘bling’ was brought out of the shed again tonight with 21 teams presenting themselves to the starter for tonight’s much anticipated 2-up Time Trial. There is no hiding in Time Trials, especially when you are working for another rider more than you are for yourself. Tonight was no exception with at least one rider having to abandon due to vomiting. More teams were hampered with mechanical difficulties also leading to abandonment or riders finishing solo with their team-mate following along behind them in the sag wagon.

Congratulations tonight go to Finn and Caleb Roberts for blitzing the short course. On the full course line honours go to Ben Knight and Tom McCallum who started last, passed the whole field to cross the line first in a time of 57:05! Devan Simmonds and Lesley Mouat were the fastest mixed team. Sheri Wales and Stacey Miller were the fastest all woman team.

Congratulations also go to all the folks who completed the Abel Tasman Challenge last weekend. Also to Ben Knight who competed in Rotorua at the Single Speed World Championships.

Results from tonight’s race are:

Race 8 – Dalefield Circuit

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

Tonight’s circuit is a deceptively hard circuit, especially for those of us who are small in stature. Inevitably it is a course  where the back door gets left open and many an unwary rider slips out that open door on the false flat, head wind and round the corners and then they find themselves riding alone.

Congratulations tonight go to Rod and Jenni Sutherland, fastest riders on the short course. Scarlett McCallum was the fastest junior on the short course. On the long course the first rider to finish was Steve Macan, and first woman to finish was Donna Burkhart. The fastest man was Ben Knight and fastest woman Belinda Fuller. Many thanks to Dave Hodder who stopped to assist another rider who crashed, his time and race place has been adjusted as a result.

Congratulations also have to go to Jeff Saywell for his 3rd place finish on Saturday’s North Island Series race. Congratulations also go to everyone who rode the Tour of Wairarapa on Sunday – it was a tough day in the saddle, and once again special mention goes to young Caleb Roberts who won the 50km course, and to Kirsten Goodin who was the fastest woman on the 90km course.

Finally reminders to all those rider who have yet to renew their Cycling New Zealand Licence – you have until the end of December to do so if you want to continue to race with the club. Go to: https://www.cyclingnewzealand.nz and log into your account to purchase 2018 licence.
