Criterium 2

Juniors: With just four competitors, the boys raced closely and showed good riding skills before enjoying the MARs bars on offer at the podium.

D Grade: WIth 8 competitors starting this race quickly turned into a 3 person race with Andrea, Jack and Phil breaking away early. Late in the race Andrea found another gear and rode off the front to leave Jack and Phil to fight out the minor placings. One for the girls!

C Grade: A big field again for the C grade and a solid pace right from the gun saw a few drop off the back in the first half. Those remaining stayed together for a drag to the end. Adam Grams had a big turn around after his DNF last week & showed great pace to hold off Tony Nolan who was returning to racing after sometime.

B Grade: Former elite A rider, Brady Cumming stirred the pack right from the gun. After a few attempts a break-away of 4 developed – Brady, Chris Maycock, Trent West and Matthew Haswell. These 4 guys rode like a well oiled machine and continued through out the race to put ground on the pack. This may have been helped by “team Dalby” putting “the brakes on” too to let their man get away?? A strong sprint by new comer Trent saw him take the win for the first time.

A Grade: Smaller field this week, with a few regulars away. The pack staying together until mid race. Here Seb, Peter and then Raf jumped off the front until the final laps. Strong riding by Darren Rolfe soon brought the pack back together. Here Darren proved himself as a good lead-out man for Campbell who just held off Peter Collins in a close finish.
