It was definitely a case of 'four seasons in one day' for the 54 hardy riders who signed on for Week 9 of the Spoken Cycles Winter Series with icy winds, driving rain and sunny spells! This race also doubled as the handicap race for the prestigious Schwartfeger, Glass, and Messenger Cups.
Congratulations to Andrew Harrison (Schwartfeger Trophy), Hunter Adams (U17 Glass Cup), and Carter Paine (U15 Messenger Cup) - these will be officially presented at our Annual Dinner and Prizegiving (date to be confirmed) We also congratulate Dan Bridgewater who took out fastest time over the 50 kms in a time of 1.09.32
Results are attached and points for the Winter Series will be sorted on the website this week. Thank you to our marshals from the Puahue Hall Fundraising Committee and to Wayne & Selwyn for their assistance in providing a safe race for our riders. Arthur was also at the race so I'll load up his photos onto our FB page.
Next Sunday we return to Goodwood for the final race in the series - an individual time trial! An email advertising this will be sent out this week.
Have a wonderful week and enjoy the Comm Games coverage of our awesome trackies completing their campaign over the next couple of days. Mountain Biking is on the 3rd of August and the Time Trial and Road Race are on the 4th and 7th of August respectively. We wish our riders all the very best!
