Last for the season. Good to see Mark back on the bike and on form. Like he never had a few weeks off.
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
1st L Mouat 37:26
2nd E Lutyens 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 🙂
