Race Report

Tonights race was a Kermesse around the Upper Manaia Road circuit. Each lap riders sprint the start/finish line with the first four  riders awarded 5,3,2 & 1 point respectively. In effect it’s a graded race so those riders asking for support on the upwind leg were perhaps being a little optimistic.

The circuit is 7kms long with the A, & B  grades completing 5 laps for 35km.

The D & C grades completed 4 laps for 28km and

E grade completed 3 laps for 21kms . The course is pan flat but with a number of challenging corners, particularly the fast left into Boundary Road which seemed to catch some riders out.

The final turn onto the start/finish straight saw many riders jockeying for prime position for the sprint down to the finish line. Added to these challenges was a blustery westerly wind that encouraged a lot of ‘tactical’ riding heading up West Bush road.
