Race 10 -Whangaehu – Bideford return, HRR

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

Tonight’s race proved to be a popular one. So despite the number of folks with ‘Taupo’ or ‘Not Taupo’ weary legs (long rides in the weekend!) 59 riders presented themselves to the starter, 5 on the short course and 54 taking on the full course over the rolling Wairarapa landscape. Riders started into a head-cross cutter breeze and faced a number of gentle rolling hills on the way out and what most people consider to be one quite testing longer climb on the return journey. These things combined to cause quite a few riders to disappear out of their bunch via the open back door (why does it always seem to get left open!). Tonight’s results reflect that many of the riders who left on limit worked well together to maintain their time advantage over the chasing bunches, whilst the scratch bunch didn’t have the legs to close the gap to the front end of break.

Line honours and winner of tonight’s full course is Emily Lutyens – welcome back from your OE, a great way to mark your return to racing! Once again credit to Caleb Roberts who also rode a great race but lost the sprint to Emily tonight. The fastest woman this evening over the long course is Belinda Fuller and the fastest man Ben Knight – two names that are popping up on a regular basis in the results!

Of the short course riders, the Tandem, ridden by Rod and Jenni Sutherland proved the strongest contender tonight.

Next Week: the long awaited and great fun of a ‘Crit’ – Venue is the Masterton Motorplex.

Note: No official marshals required – one bunch on the race-track at a time and those not out racing assist the race manager ‘spotting’ for sprint points.
