Race 14, Kourarau Loop, HRR

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

The first race of the second half of the season began in almost perfect weather conditions, which led to quicker times than last year for many riders. But make no mistake the 40 riders who presented themselves to the starter were all in for a tough ride with this course, billed as one to kick start the return to fitness after too much Christmas/New Year indulgence! As the results show all the bunches split, most long before they crossed the finish line – Kourarau is a hill that is renown for splitting bunches, and at least one of the bunches had split before they reached the base of the climb.

Tonight congratulations go to Terry Blackburn taking line honours for the full course with Donna Burkhart the first woman to cross the line, hot on Terry’s heals. Congratulations to Ben Knight who just out-climbed Mark Langlands to be the fastest man and to Lesley Mouat who was the fastest woman on the long course. Congratulations also to Sydney Blackburn for taking out the short course and to Ethan Hayes the youngest rider on the night.

Many thanks to marshals and race officials and also to David and Lyn Howden for hosting a fabulous ‘after match’ supper at their home.

Next week will be slightly different with our club race being held slightly earlier but over the same course as Jorge’s ‘big boys’ (NZ Classic Tour) starting outside Mitre 10 on Ngaumutawa Road. This is a great chance for everyone to have a good hit out themselves and then stand back and appreciate the speed and strength of those Pro’s!
