On Sunday the Sutherland Open was two races; a road and a crit and saw both Metro and Country combined although broken into A and B grade heats. Troy was first out in the morning in about 10degrees weather that only marginally warmed during the day, Troy went out hard and stayed with the pack for the crit race. But he run out of puff half a lap from the finish. (15min + 2 laps)
Nathan rode well and kept the pace and finished fifth. Nathan, the Warburton boys, and two other Academy kids all rode together to hold of the Sydney and other country riders and come 1 – 5. (12min + 2 laps)
Road in the afternoon. Troy just cruised to finished (7.5km). Nathan (13.5km) got a fourth. The first three rode as one pack and a break back to the next four. That four worked together and Nathan was able to sprint away at the end for fourth.
They enjoyed themselves.
This weekend they are riding the Gold Coast Goldstars Junior Two Day Carnival. Sat at Runaway Bay and Sunday at Nerang.
