A Reminder About Bunch Rides

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

To all members. The article, reproduced below, is a timely reminder of the joys and etiquette of bunch rides. As the article says, a bunch ride is exactly that - a bunch ride - not a surgefest, or dangerfest like overtaking over double lines on a descent.

Please read this and remember why you first started doing bunch rides, it's about fun and friendship - also if you want to race, then race - Beauie is the perfect venue to test your strength and speed, not a club bunch ride.

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Great day's racing in the winter sunshine for our annual club championships.

High quality racing all round across every division with Masters 1-3 proving to be the fastest bunch in mowing down Elite after one lap.....power plus with these "mature" riders. Matty Garnon showed all that tactics and strength go together.

Matt Osbourne, one of our Junior Academy graduates, got up in Elite with an impressive display of power finishing - great to see Helmut's juniors shake it up.

In Women's Elite, Queen of the Dirt Track - Briony Mattocks - took the title.

Tom Green Excels At National Cyclocross Series

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Cyclocross is becoming huge in Australia - following the trend in Europe and now North America.

Some excellent results for our younger club riders over the last few weeks continued with Tom Green taking out Round 3 & 4 of the National CX Series in Vic in the U19 category.

U19 riders started at the back of the Elite field and put some of the slower elite mens riders to the sword in both races. On Saturday Tom had a gap with one other rider in tow and was forced to do all the work for the last lap and a half before still having the strength to take the two up sprint for the win.
