Race Report – 27 Feb 023 ACM WIZWireless Whangaehou/Bideford HRR

The course was a modest 30kms or so but managed to feel quite grunty with its undulating mix of short, sharp climbs, one long climb and fast flats

A grand total of 21 riders lined up for the start at the Whangaehu Hall. The turn around was located this side of the Bideford school with the finish line in the usual spot atop the final climb coming up to the Whangaehu turn off

Handicap groups had very modest numbers; 3 in Limit, 3 in Break 3, 3 in Break 2, 3 in Break and 4 in Scratch. The short course had 3 riders plus there was Doug & Meri on their e Tandem and Jorge on an e road bike. Conditions were good with a dry road and light sou’easterly breeze. Well done to Rex Dowding for taking the win and to Break 3 for staying in front. Special mention to Sam Jury who rode away very strongly from Break but didn’t quite make the finish line before Rex and Stephen
