The ACM racing calendar kicked off Tuesday night with the individual time trial up Matahiwi Road. Conditions were not encouraging with a brisk sou’westerly wind and temperatures hovering around six degrees. Nevertheless forty eight keen competitors presented themselves to the starting gate ready to take on the 17km course.
In addition to the regular ACM riders were nine riders of the Black Spokes pro race team. The Black Spokes are currently here in the Wairarapa to compete in the North Island Team Series.
Needless to say the results were dominated by the visiting riders with Tom McCallum being the highest place local rider coming in 7th place. Highest place woman was Emily Lutyens who came in 30th overall.
Many thanks to the race organisers and the marshals out on the course.
Next race is Tuesday 6th October Rangitumau-Mauriceville return starting at the Twin Bridges at 6pm
