Race Report – 27 Feb 023 ACM WIZWireless Whangaehou/Bideford HRR

The course was a modest 30kms or so but managed to feel quite grunty with its undulating mix of short, sharp climbs, one long climb and fast flats

A grand total of 21 riders lined up for the start at the Whangaehu Hall. The turn around was located this side of the Bideford school with the finish line in the usual spot atop the final climb coming up to the Whangaehu turn off

Handicap groups had very modest numbers; 3 in Limit, 3 in Break 3, 3 in Break 2, 3 in Break and 4 in Scratch. The short course had 3 riders plus there was Doug & Meri on their e Tandem and Jorge on an e road bike. Conditions were good with a dry road and light sou’easterly breeze. Well done to Rex Dowding for taking the win and to Break 3 for staying in front. Special mention to Sam Jury who rode away very strongly from Break but didn’t quite make the finish line before Rex and Stephen

Race Report – 21 February 2023 ACM WIZwireless 2Up TT Whangaehu Valley Rd

The 2Up TT was held on the Whangaehou Valley road course. Starting and finishing at the Te Ore Ore marae. The main race being 40kms out and back with a short course option also available

Conditions were good, warm but with a blustery nor’westerly that provided help and hinderance in equal measure. Up the valley road the wind tends to swirl around inconsistently giving riders unexpected gusts of head & side winds

There was a modest turnout of club members for the race. Just 12 entries in the long course and 6 for the short course. These supplemented by 2 ebike riders and 2 solo riders

Quickest riders on the night was the duo of Dave Drummond & Simon Butler. The short course honors went to the mother & daughter team of Dalene & Gita Van Der Leek

Race Report – 7 Feb 023 ACM WIZWireless Road Race Champs Carrington Circuit

The annual club road race champs was on the Carrington circuit. It’s only a fraction over 12kms in length but last night managed to dish out an extraordinary amount of punishment. The combination of Haringa road with it’s never ending false flat and malign surface coupled with the brisk westerly sapped the legs before riders hit the short but vicious climb up and over Carrington Hill. After one lap the mass start had broken up with riders strung out around the circuit

Kudos to the 30 riders who presented themselves to the start line. The bulk of riders were up for 4 laps with some opting for the 2 lap short course and the Elite/M1/M4 doing 5

The start/finish was located along Haringa road. Maintaining a good average speed from here to the left turn up Mangatarere road was a major challenge. The westerly had picked up to present riders with a stiff head wind. The road surface is rougher than gravel and it’s a false flat. The turn up Mangatarere road brought some short respite before the left turn into Hururua road and the short but nasty climb over Carrington Hill. Once over the top it was down hill with a tail wind so speeds were high through the series of sweeping bends leading past Fensham Reserve and the left turn back into Haringa road and another leg sapping grind through the start/finish line

There are two sets of results for those that did two laps, Final and Final with Laps.

Great feedback, thank you to everyone who took part. A couple of special mentions, Jackson Kosena (9) and Julian Lawrence (13) who finished the event.

I rode late in the ride and did notice a wild skid mark on the exit of the tightening hairpin on the downhill section on Mangaoranga Road. Good save someone unless it was just Caleb Roberts playing silly buggers.

Thank you to Mark Jurling who was in the truck and set out the course signs for the Traffic Management Plan and had to be rescued from a drain on the pickup lap and Andrew Linton who prepared the TMP. Brent Sowry our Commissaire, ACM bike section President and general organiser and general good guy. Belinda Fuller who stood in the sun for most of the morning collecting tag and registering everyone. The ACM harrier section marshals who also stood in the sun on some key intersections. Karen Blade in the background making sure we are all on track and others too numerous to mention.

Race Report – 31 Jan 023 ACM WizWireles Hill Climb Champs Te Wharou Road

It’s that time of year again; club championships & trophies up for grabs. Last night it was the hill climb champs up Te Wharou road. From Gladstone to the top of Kourarou. My Garmin had the distance as 6.79kms with 303m of elevation. Conditions were reasonable, very warm & humid with a nor’easterly breeze. Fortunately the breeze seemed to disappear further up the climb.   

There were 26 riders who lined up to start. The order was slowest to fastest with 30 seconds intervals between starts. The climb is a time trial to the top with pacing playing an important part. Go to hard to early on the early slopes and your legs could fall off nearer to the top.

Congratulations to Caleb Roberts for fastest overall time and to Belinda Fuller for fastest woman

Of course the second race of the evening was even more important. The ‘Roll Off’ back down the hill to the start line. The rules are simple; push off at the top of the hill and free wheel to the bottom. No pedalling allowed. A group of a dozen or so assembled and pushed off. There is some skill involved in adopting as aero position as possible and drafting other riders without using brakes. The leading trio of Donna B, Andy CC and Devan S had forged ahead and looked set for the podium when a stealthy Richard VDL overtook metres before the finish line and pipped them for first place.

A big thanks to the organisers and marshals for supporting the race and keeping everyone safe. Thanks also to the truck driver and volunteers for setting up & taking down the road signage.

Next race Tuesday 7 February. The club road race champs on the ever popular Carrington circuit. The good news is there’s only (short) climb per lap.
