It was a glorious day on which to have our fourth and final race of the Trophy Series for 2018. Congratulations to all trophy winners. Full final results can be read here.
The weather was almost perfect for this year’s running of the Clark Cup Handicapped Road Race. Thirty eight riders presented themselves to the starter in four start groups. The riders raced out past Wainuioru onto the ‘Y loop’, then down Westmere for approximately 5 kms before returning to Wainuioru and a left turn towards the finish at the top of Limeworks hill. By the time riders were on the final climb, the grades were thoroughly mixed up, for which all the credit goes to the handicapper.
Line honours went to Nigel Page, followed closely by Peter James and Malcolm Allen. The fastest rider overall was Matt Webb-Smith completing the 74 km race in a time of 1 hour, 56 minutes and 41 seconds. In the women’s race Lesley Mouat was the first and fastest woman to complete the course followed by Belinda Fuller.
Many thanks to all those officials who gave up their day to Marshall for us. The full results are:
|Rider||Number||Grade||Shute order||Start time||Finish time||Ride time|
|Matt Webb-Smith||930||A||4||0:35:00||2:31:41||1:56:41||fastest man|

Great weather & great turnout for Sanders & Gough on Saturday. This event was first held in 1924. It was the turn of the Aurora Club this year and they hosted it from our clubrooms. Check out Facebook for lots of great photos. There may be the odd error in the results – but hey its not the Olympics and Ray, Hadley & the team did a great job.
It was a cold morning but a great course for the third Trophy Series run. You can view the results here.
The Life Flight Trust Handicap Half Marathon & Relay is on Saturday, 29th September 2018 at Belvedere in West Carterton.
