Handicaps are never easy to calculate and the Caesar’s Illawarra Cycle Club race at Huntly on January 20 was no exception. With 43 riders of widely varying ability, it was going to be an interesting event.
Fifteen year old Josh Wall used his Pursuit skills to ride away from his group in the last few kilometres of the race to take a well-deserved victory. Other middle markers including Adam Crowther, Paul Kean, Mark Davis, Joe Pereira, Gerard Donaldson and Jeff Grey took the minor placings and remaining prizemoney.
Block riders finished forty seconds behind the winner whilst scratch riders finished a further minute and twenty seconds back. Fastest Time was by Brendan Cato with 53 minutes and 44 seconds over the 37 kilometre course.
The second block group had to contend with losing half its number due to a fall which injured Frank Soto and Dave Russell. We wish them both a speedy recovery. Of the limit riders only Sally Watts and Paul Kaye were able to hang on to the faster riders as they came through.
Next week’s event is the Tour de Huntly. Volunteers are required to help out with marshalling duties at sprints, corners and the turnaround.
