Race Report – 02 November 2021  Francis Line HRR

On a cold, blustery evening only 28 riders presented themselves for the Francis Line handicap road race. The conditions were not conducive for an enthusiastic turn out neither was the resurfaced start/finish section that more closely resembled rough gravel than a sealed road.

In a burst of empathy for the riders & marshals (and some riders would have preferred to marshal than ride) the race was shortened to two laps of the 15km circuit with the short course completing one lap. Handicap groups were Limit; Break 2 at 6 minutes; Break at 10 minutes and Scratch at 16 minutes.

Limit rode well claiming the first five places with Anil Raman claiming the overall win in a time of 58:13. Close behind were four riders from Break who overhauled Break 2 and finished seconds behind Limit. The group of fractious riders in Scratch did not feature on this occasion. 

The short course featured three riders and was won by Samantha Plimmer in a time of 32:48

Again thanks to the marshals and organisers who were out on the course ensuring the safety of the riders. 

Next race on Tues 9 Nov will be a GRR Rangitumau/Mauricville/Kaka Amu. Weather permitting there will be a BBQ afterwards.
