Race Report – 30 Mar 021  Kaituna MSRR

ACM’s final club race of the season and 34 riders presented themselves to the start line. There was no short course. Defying the forecast the weather was very good with little wind and warm temperatures.

Kaituna is a short, sharp, fast and honest course that often splinters the peleton into smaller groups and offers little opportunity for individuals to hide from the effort. This is what happened tonight with an initial hard effort from the A Grade riders that had the group rapidly strung out in a line before breaking up into their respective grades.

The A Grade continued with their fast pace and filled the podium places. Mark Langlands debuted his return from injury by outpacing everyone else for 1st place, well done Mark!

The post race venue was provided by Mark & Annie Jerling. We were treated to pizzas from their new outside pizza oven and a very convivial evening was had by all.


1st        M Langlands             35:27

2nd       D Cameron                36:18

3rd       D Roberts                  36:18

Fastest Women

1st        L Mouat                      37:26

3rd       D Burkhart                 40:08

Next fixture is the Hope Gibbons TTT on Sunday 2nd May. This will be held on a new circuit neat to Featherston.

Finally, many thanks to the key people who have spent the season managing, timing and marshalling during the year so that we could enjoy the racing.

Keep riding and stay safe 🙂

Final 5 km series event

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Thank you to everyone who came and ran, walked or helped out today for the last event in the 2021 5 km series. 91 finishers – what a great way to end the season. A very special thank you to all our sponsors – this would not be possible without you.

185 people participated in the series – and that doesn’t count the Mums and Dads who ran with children but didn’t take a finish card. Almost 50 completed at least 5 of the events. What a great effort.

Race Report – 23 Mar 2021  Matahiwi 2Up Time Trial 

There were 33 riders who presented themselves for the 2Up time trial tonight. This included 4 riders for the short course. The parcours for the evening was an out and return up Matahiwi road for a distance of 17km. Conditions were good with cloud clearing during the afternoon for a warm and sunny evening with a light wind that disappeared over the course of the race.

On the outward leg Matahiwi road undulates gently upwards with only one short ramp to deal with. Past the single lane bridge were several km’s of new chip which didn’t enhance speed but did cause difficulties for one rider who almost came to grief. The return leg is more downhill then up and gives riders the opportunity to improve their average speed on the run to the finish line.

Dave Drummonds’ good form continues. He and his 2Up partner showed a clean pair of heels (tyres?) to the other riders. They were chased hard by Derek Roberts and Eric D’Arbois. And, showing a remarkable return to form, Shifty and Horse pulled off a podium finish with 3rd place.  


1st    D Drummond/S Harpham      23:10:43

2nd   D Roberts/E D’Arbois            23:49:18

Race Report – 16 Mar 2021  Watsons Rd/Wainuioru HRR

Tonight 29 riders presented themselves to the start line including 4 for the short course.

Watsons Road to Wainuioru and back is a mere 30kms but with two decent climbs and the high speeds associated with the handicap format presents a tough challenge for most riders. Tonights race was further complicated by a southerly front that hit just as most riders were going over the summit of the second climb. Heading into the turn around they were confronted by a cold and gusty southerly that dropped the temperature by 10 degrees and made the last kilometres to the turn harder then they need have been.

Duncan Cameron and Dave Drummond were on top form. Starting in Limit but over hauling all the other riders on the return leg to finish 1st and 2nd respectively. A good result too for John Gibbons who hung in there for a solid 3rd place.

Lesley Mouat is showing a return to form finishing as fastest woman and a well earned 5th place.  


1st    D Cameron         (Break)      58:40

2nd   D Drummond      (Break)      58:42

3rd    J Gibbons           (Limit)        1:11:20

Race Report – 9 Mar 2021  Miller Road GRR

The return of an old favourite! A single 29km lap around the Millers Road circuit starting and finishing at the Gladstone church. ACM were again favoured with very good conditions, warm with a variable northerly breeze.

The course itself is relatively flat and fast with the exception of the climb over Millers road itself. The final ramp and downhill favours riders who can accelerate over the top and gap following riders on the downhill section. The left turn onto the run to the finish line has some gentle undulations but this is where the northerly breeze made itself known with the riders having to work hard to maintain good speed all teh way to the chequered flag. 

Numbers were modest with only 34 riders presenting themselves to the start line. This included 5 riders for the short course (13km). Some groups were small, only three in the A grade. At least they were all guaranteed to podium!

In Fastest Time Order

2 March ACM Race Report – Whangaehu Hall/Bideford Rd HRR

A total of 35 riders presented themselves at Whangaehu Hall for the start of the Bideford Road HRR. This included 6 riders for the short course.

The turn around for the long course was the Bideford Hall giving a distance of 30kms. The short course turned at Stoddards Road for a distance of 18kms.

Conditions for the race were excellent with temperatures in the mid 20’s and a light northerly providing assistance for the return leg. The course is a straightforward out and return with one technical downhill section. There are also a variety of undulating sections including the longer hill climb on the return leg that performed its task of selecting the final contestants for the dash to the finish line.

On the night many riders were caught on the long climb on the return leg. Break 2 overhauled Break 3 with Break in hot pursuit and elements of Scratch closing in fast.

Unfortunately an accident on the fast straight after the climb saw one rider taken to ED with a number of riders pulling up to render assistance.

Hill Climb Club Champs 2021 – Kaka Amu Road

Overall Results

Age Group Results

Race Report – 23 Feb 2021  ACM Hill Climb Champs – Kaka Amu Rd

This years hill climb ITT championship was a 5.7km course on Kaka Amu Road which winds its way up the side of Rangitumau, a local peak and landmark.

It’s not a brutal climb like the Admiral Hill Road or as long as the Kaurarau climb never the less it’s challenging to do it as an individual time trial. The start is a long false flat leading into the first ramp that winds past the hall. Thereafter several more distinct ramps are interspersed with flat ish sections eventually leading onto the final false flat and the finish line.  

The effort was made more challenging by the high evening temperature and nor’easterly headwind that made its presence known to the riders.

In all 38 cyclists presented themselves to the start line. In a first for the club (and possibly reflecting the growing number of B.B.‘s  transitioning to this genre) there was a separate E bike catagory with 4 cyclists represented.

All cyclists rode the same course. No short course this week.
