Carnegie Caulfield Cycling Club
Glenvale Crescent, Melbourne, April 2, 2006
By Mal Sawford
After a week off for the Commonwealth Games, it was business as usual at Glenvale Crescent, although with the temperature a good 15 degrees cooler than it had been in recent weeks. The cool Melbourne morning was still a lot more pleasant than the conditions faced by a number of the Club's riders the day before in the Baw Baw Classic - where finishers were greeted by sub-zero temperatures and snow fall at the Mt Baw Baw summit! Congratulations to Helen Kelly for taking the win in the Women's race, and to Ken Ford for his amazing sixth win in succession in the Masters 4, 5 & 6 division, and to everyone else mad enough to take part.
Back at Glenvale, the A Grade race was pretty much decided in the first ten
minutes. After a first lap solo effort from Damon De Angelis (Promains) was
reeled in, a counter attack by Gitane/SHM duo Brendan Rowbotham and Peter Barnett,
Nick Walker (CBD Cycles), Warren Knevitt (O'Mara Cycles), Julian Dutton (SmallDog.com.au)
and Greg Nicholson (Pro-Motion) took off and were quickly out of sight.
The B Grade race saw a number of early breaks open handy gaps, but none big
enough to put the bunch out of contention. Mark Kotzen, Gareth Martyn (O'Mara),
Michael Chiller and Tess Downing (Drapac-Porsche Development) featured in one
move, with Downing also chasing across to the most threatening break containing
Peter Zvedeniuk, Brian Nguyen, Glenn Wright (Giramondo) and Andrew Robinson
The final race in the Tri-Alliance Women's Super Summer series saw a good field
tackle the sport category. Kerrie Howard (Fitzroy Cycles) and Michelle Murrell
did their best to split the field in the early stages, but weren't allowed to
dictate terms and were chased down whenever they attacked.
Dean Berry (Bicycle Superstore) will see out the season in B Grade, after a
good win in the C Grade bunch sprint, with regular place-getters Jarrad Anderson
and Clint McDonell also on the move after following Berry home. It's a similar
scenario in D Grade with Fabio Angelini (Bicycle Superstore) taking the win
from promising junior Calvin Watson and Marco Nardo: both Angelini and Nardo
are well and truly ready for C Grade.

of April at Glenvale Crescent (Melways map 80B2). B, D and E Grades start at
