Beauie Race Report 16th Dec

The final Beauie for 2018 almost didn’t get run today as an early morning course inspection found 50 metres of smashed glass across both sides of the road. Thanks to Neil Aldridge for helping me sweep the glass and thanks to Commissaire George for clearing the debris after the storms.

In A grade a quality field featured an attack fest with all the hitters putting on the hurt early. Dan McGuigan and Jack Renshaw were in an early break, but with so much quality in the chasing bunch, this break was doomed.

As usual Mick MC Hammer Cupitt was lighting it up and also watching every move. The field kept watching Michael Potter to see if the mega miles he has been doing recently would mean dead legs. After a series of breaks it came back together for a bunch kick finish and Anton Dimmer Dimitroski wound up a massive sprint of easily 1500watts only to be pipped on the line by Michael Potter who timed it to perfection. Micko Cupitt was just behind in 3rd place.

In B grade the first lap saw Craig Stevens drop the chain on the bottom turn and hit the deck hard. His elbow looked like some of the steak hanging in his butchers shop and thankfully he is ok.

The pace was mental and some of us were dropped super early as a 7 man break formed including Andy Logan. The break was working really well together and we all thought it would stick. However the chasing bunch which included Matt Burglar Garnon and Dave O’Connell, put theirs heads down and bit by bit wound the break in.

After another strong surge the bunch splintered and there were riders getting dropped like fleas off a dog. In the sprint for the line, Garnon gassed it and almost had his arms in the air, before Lachie Sky unleashed and showed quality #dogsquad form to come over the top and take the win. Quality race in B grade and blistering pace.

In C grade the field was playing it very cagey and posted a high average for C grade - 37.8km/hour - so that no moves stuck. The ParkLife boys were very active as they had numbers and rode smart by sending riders up the road constantly.

Almost without anyone noticing, a break of 4 just seemed to slip away while the bunch was sleeping. The break dangled off the front for ages but the chasing bunch were not coordinated and lap after lap the distance stayed around 70m.

In a sprint for the win, the break was very close and Russell Fox from ParkLife showed his love of Beauie was well rewarded getting up for the win
