Race 13 Miller Road, Admiral Hill, HRR

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

Thirty five riders presented themselves to the starter for the final race of 2017. This race has been much anticipated over a new course. The full course riders headed south from Gladstone Church, turning on Longbush, then racing back and being turned left for the short sharp climb up the steep side of Millers road, and then after a short decent, turning around once more to race back towards Gladstone, where the final right turn headed riders towards the finish at the first summit of Admiral Hill. The short course riders, also headed south, and turned on Longbush, but avoided the climbs on Millers Road, before the Admiral Hill climb.

The weather this evening was cooler but there was a strong gusty wind that played its part, along with the challenging climbs, in isolating several riders from their start groups. In fact none of the start groups remained intact right to the finish. As the finish line came into view small groups, often just two or three riders sprinted for line honours.

Congratulations tonight to Darren Sullivan and Caleb Roberts, winners of the full course and short course respectively.  Also congratulations to Belinda Fuller – first and fastest woman, and Ben Knight – fastest man on the night.

Many thanks to all whom have made racing possible in the first half of the season, in particular Mark Jerling and Kevin MacKay for setting the course each week, to Brent Sowry our race manager and club captain, to Toni McCallum for timekeeping and to all who have done their share of marshalling duties.

We wish you all a Happy Christmas and good start to 2018.  Our first race for 2018 is Tuesday 9th January and is a Handicapped Road Race around the Kourarau Circuit.
