Race Report Courtesy of Ant Ryan - C Grade Winner

It was an early start for a few NSCC riders to make it out to Eastern Creek for a 7am start for the Judgement Day Race hosted by North Western Sydney Cycling Club. We were all nervous in the immediate lead up to the race as we had not had rain for something like 76 days and then the day before the race – rain. Fortunately it was a brisk, clear day that greeted us after a quick trip on the M2/M7.

The cloudy skies and damp track didn't deter the large field that turned up for Beauie on a mild spring morning. The threat of rain was just that, until the latter part of the racing and it cooled us down nicely after some hard fast racing.

Oil your chains, tighten your cleats, shave your legs - yes it's Beauie this Sunday in this amazing spring weather.

Will we see the newly crowned king of West Head Wall - Mark Templeton - at Beauie this week to show that his awesome form can also work on the fast beauie crit course? Will we see Jack Renshaw try to outdo the ugly pain face he perfected last week?

Battle of the Bridge Round 3 - Michael Potter puts on a Clinic as Norths dominate again!

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Another cool but clear morning greeted riders for the 3rd round of BOTB at West Head. At sign on, Alexis was talking about having "bad legs" due to some event on Friday and so wouldn't be starting today. The rumour mill is in overdrive that The Donald has personally requested Alexis be appointed to the role of Press Secretary after reading last week's MWCC Fake News post race report that was published last week. Apparently Trump has been impressed with Alexis ability to overlook facts time and time again and likened the Manly Secretary to "Comical Ali".

Battle of the Bridge Round 2 – The Red and White Walkers Dominate

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Winter had well and truly arrived this morning for Round 2 of Battle of the Bridge. The industrial wasteland of Beaumont Road was the venue for the 2nd round and for those unfamiliar, tight hairpin corners awaited them. A fantastic turnout for this morning’s race, with the coffee van pumping out plenty of brews for riders and spectators alike. SuVelo and NSCC brought strong teams to the Crit race of the North, while Manly for all their posturing during the week, had a decidedly weaker team.

After the first round at Heffron Park with Manly claiming all the spoils* (SuVelo were the real winners) we move North of the Bridge to Beauemont Road for the NSCC Round of Battle of the Bridge. Beauie is a tough little circuit and if you can’t go around a corner, you can find yourself dropped off the back off the group and having to drop a Griepelesque 1500w effort to get back on. Just ask Chris Miller.

Battle of the Bridge Round One - Moral Victory to NSCC

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Yesterday the mighty NSCC warriors travelled into enemy territory to defend our dominance of the Sydney inter-club race series - the Battle of the Bridge Round 1 at Heffron.

A massive bunch rolled down the Pacific Highway en route to Heffron - it was an amazing sight. Our hosts at Heffron RBCC put on a very well-organised race considering it was a sellout in all grades. They even organised a free sausage sizzle (sorry Tai - no vegan snags) and beers which was very hospitable.

Cootamundra Opens Racing This Weekend

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

The famous Cootamundra Haycarters Handicap - or Coota as it is better known - is one the the NSW Open classics.

Rolling terrain on those infamous dead roads where you feel like you are pedalling through treacle, makes this a hard race. That's why it is always seen as the benchmark for true race form.

Being a handicap means that its full gas all the way as the aim is to catch the bunch up the road, yet not get caught by the chasing bunches - as they say you're always on the rivet.

This year NSCC has a smaller contingent than in the past, however the team is quality.

Former club junior and now NSW U23 road champion, Michael Potter, is a fantastic example and role model of the NSCC club values.

At the recent State Road Championships, Michael outclassed a red hot field to take the gold medal in an eye-catching performance, that has earned him a ride in Europe at the top level. The win followed other recent top results with podium at Blayney to Bathurst, and a win at the Bathurst Hill Climb champs.

Folks

After two rained-out Beauies this year, the club committee and especially El Pres George Mouyahet, have been seeking guarantees from the Weather Bureau that we will have fine weather this weekend.

And the forecast looks perfect as we host the traditional Easter Monday Beauie Worlds. New Beauie Supremo Bob (Attaquer) Santone has his team prepped and ready to put on a great race on NSW's best criterium course. We are expecting a big turnout as everyone wants to race Beauie on Easter Monday, so we advise competitors to pre-book via the club webshop on the NSCC home page.

Saluting Club Legend - Craig Stevens

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

For the past several years, once and sometimes twice a month, our beloved Beauie Race Coordinator - Craig Stevens - has been running our crit races at Beaumont Road.

Many club members perhaps do not realise how much effort goes into running races - not just on the race day, but all the preparatory work to organise Traffic Controllers, liaise with other clubs and making sure the course is in good condition for race day.

Craig has been doing this hard work - like all the volunteers who comprise the club committee - for one reason, he loves the club and the sport of competition cycling.
