Wainuioru to Te Wharau GRR

posted in: Club, Cycling, Results | 0

The first club race for 2019 attracted 45 entrants over 5 grades in great weather conditions for racing. Grades left a one minute intervals starting with A Grade. As usual the goal in a Graded Road Race is to work out how to beat all the riders in your start group. This is never an easy task, and can be particularly difficult after the Christmas/New Year break from racing and for some of us the seasonal over-indulgences.

The out and back course proved, once again, to be a challenging. It is a course that includes some sweeping fast down hill sections that then become quite difficult steep climbs on the return journey. The large number of riders who failed to complete their entire course, thus returning, Did Not Finish (DNF) in their results bears witness to how hard it was out there tonight.

Congratulations tonight go to:

A Grade – Mark Langlands

B Grade – Phil Sutherland

C Grade – Duncan Cameron with Belinda Fuller Fastest woman on the night

D Grade – Daniel Jaques, with Emily Lutyens close behind

E Grade – Jorge Sandoval

Short course – Scarlett Freeman followed closely by Jaimee Blackburn

As always, many thanks to our race officials and those in charge of the BBQ.
