Race 6 – Nov 17 2020 – Mauriceville – Rangitumau GRR
This was a 32km graded road race starting at Twin Bridges, heading North to the turnpoint
in Mauriceville before returning South and turning left onto the Bluff Rangitumau Road.
The race culminating with a 3km climb to the finish line half way up Rangitumau Hill. The
short course turned at Kopuaranga Hall.
The course between Twin Bridges and Mauriceville is often exposed to the wind. This night
was no exception with a strong gusty westerly providing a leg sapping headwind and
challenging crosswinds. There was some respite on the return leg with intermittent bursts
of tailwind encouraging high speeds.
There were 49 riders in 5 grades who presented themselves to the start line. This included
6 for the short course. Kudos to Derek Cox and Peter Jones on the tandem for leading the
C Grade to the turn point and back and finishing with a strong 2nd place on the climb.
