Race Report – 6 Dec 022 ACM WizWireless Millars Road GRR

Just 22 riders fronted the start line for two laps (short course one lap) of a modified Millars Road circuit. The riders made a left turn into Tiffin Road rather than the usual left onto Carters Line. Tiffin Road provided the racers with about 1km of well groomed gravel before hitting the seal again and another left turn onto Kokotau Road.

Weather conditions were good with a warm westerly breeze and 23 degrees at the start. This seemed to change into a cool southerly as the race progressed. The benefit of this being a tail wind for the 5km drag from the corner of Millers Road down to the finish line at Gladstone church

This was a graded road race and as such all riders are racing for themselves. Tactics can play as much a part of winning as being the fastest rider. Being able to surreptitiously do less work than your fellow racers is a definite advantage. Looking at the results all grades looked like they finished with a bunch sprint
