Combined Clubs Criterium Race Report – by Rob Walker
QLD Elite track sprint champion Nathan Graves continued his road domination in his off-season at the combined club criterium racing in A Grade on Saturday morning. In near perfect racing weather Graves was able to unleash his trademark sprint with under 1km to go and take the race with a comfortable margin, Bikeline Racing/Team TLD’s Richard Macavoy sprinted to hold onto 2nd and Bikeline Racing’s Matt Sander rounded out the podium 3rd.
In a good sized B grade field the winner was Kent Bauer with Dan Sullivan taking 2nd, and Adam Grams made up the podium in 3rd. Honourable mention goes to Simeon Griggs for almost pulling off a breakaway. It won’t be long before Simeon makes it to the top of the B grade podium.
A welcome return to racing saw a fast improving Joel Dobson take out C grade with Warren Edwards in 2nd hot on Joel’s heels, & junior rider Ashley Luke (D grade) taking out 3rd place. A time handicap was afforded to D Grade riders Laura Brazier and Ashley. Only two Junior riders lined with Dylan Hickey taking 1st over Emma Stevens in 2nd. Well done to our Juniors having a crack. Hopefully we can get a field of Juniors for the upcoming Road Races.
Many thanks to Nick Byron and Paul Adcock for conducting the races and keeping us all in line. Also a huge thanks and a big hug to Suzy for taking such great pics. 🙂
