Gunnedah Race Weekend Report (via Ed Kirk)

NSCC had five starts on the Keegan Downs Handicap and six on the Gunnedah to Tamworth Scratch Races over Saturday and Sunday. In both races, the wind only came up after we started with lots of echelons developing as 20km to 35km cross winds & gusts made for some long lines.

Day 1 - Keegan Downes Memorial Sundowner 100km Handicap
Ten bunches rolled out from Coonabarabran with approx 40min between Limit & Scratch. With 33km to go as some of the middle groups reached Limit, a combination of Scratch and Block rolled through like a steam train. If you weren’t working with the lead bunch (or holding on for grim death) you were blow out the back (i.e. Ed) and had to contest the rest of the ride either solo or working within small bunches. Top marks for riding skills goes to a Warratars Masters rider, Marcus Judge who managed to stay on his bike after his front tyre exploded with the inner tube somehow wrapping its self around the hub. Thanks to Peter Beaumont for offering assistance.

Day 2 - Gunnedah to Tamworth 106km Scratch Race
After a slight delay waiting for the police escorts to arrived Div 1 rolled out around 9.20am. Unfortunately, five riders came down 3km out. A number of riders, including Dan Newman, were taken to hospital but were later discharged. Dan, we hope you’re making a speedy recovery. Six Divisions left Gunnedah and after a neutral zone put in place for the first 3km, all bunches then kicked into top gear. The crosswinds were stronger on day two with each bunch doing their best to test the strength of the riders. Lots of attacks. With the last 15km downhill, what was left of the lead bunch of each division pulled out all tricks to conserve energy and save themselves for the sprint.

Top marks to Angus Calder for getting third in Division A on Sunday and everyone else who made the 5-hour trip up to Gunnedah. A great weekend of racing with the Gunnedah Cycle Club putting on a BIG dinner on Saturday night. Hope to see a few more NSCC riders next year. Note for 2019 - Non Race Licence holders are allowed to get a day licence for the Keegan Downs Handicap.

Beauie Race Report 17th June

On a very cold Sunday morning the hard riders showed what they were made of with a hotly contested event over three grades.
Despite the cold conditions the racing was great quality and thanks to the volunteers who helped under Commissaire Craig (Ring the Bell) Stevens.

The hard man award goes to Richard Lack of NSCC who raced without arm or leg warmers - respect bro.

Results and photos below - club member Paul Frontczak took some high quality action shots which can be found here

In A grade it was the Manly show with Aaron Bicknell showing his class and went in an early three man break which included the old man of the sea, Matt Garnon. The field split into three and the Bicknell break eventually told on Matt and it was down to two. The chasing bunches lacked cohesion and it ended up a Manly procession claiming all spots in the podium. Tim Clarsen was with Aaron in the break all day and was a deserved 2nd place.

In B grade a big field stayed mostly together despite a few attacks which were all brought back. It was great to see Georgia Whitehouse in there mixing it up and her smarts showed through as she grabbed a well-deserved spot on the podium. In a bunch sprint finish new #DogSquad recruit Chris Hinds showed amazing acceleration to take the win.
C grade was another race that stayed together and the wind meant that most were looking for somewhere to shelter and save the legs. Again it was Matt Hazard a #mindmatters coaches rider who showed that his training under Mad Dog was worth it as he won clearly.

A grade
1st Aaron Bicknell MWCC
2nd Tim Clarsen MWCC
3rd Chris Taylor MWCC

B Grade
1st Chris Hinds NSCC
2nd Ryan Terry MWCC
3rd Georgia Whitehouse SuVelo

Good News and Bad News from Gunnedah/Tamworth Open Race

Mixed news from today’s Gunnedah to Tamworth Road Race. Angus Calder came third in A elite - great work Angus the Boss.

Unfortunately Dan Newman was involved in a crash and was taken to hospital. His father Paul advised that he was discharged and is OK with nothing broken, but we expect a fair bit of bark off.

Get well Dan and congrats to Angus

Beauie Sunday 17th - Don’t Be This Guy

So you’re worried that this Sunday might be a bit fresh in the morning. Don’t be the guy in the photo sitting by the heater checking his mobile phone wondering what the Beauie race results were.

Get up to Beaumont Road yourself - arm and leg warmers on board - and stomp those pedals in Sydney’s No 1 crit circuit. Racing will be hot and after one lap you’ll be glad you got out of bed.

Four scratch race grades A-D and sign on from 7.30am. Get on it
