A huge thank you to our volunteers that come to crits each week, without you guys there would be no racing. C-grade missed out on having their Prim section so they will have two next week. It was great to see so many riders this week and it would be great to build on these numbers again in the coming weeks. Results follow...
Numbers continue to build as the Criterium season gets underway spurred on by the new scoring system...
Last night was the beginning of the point score season. First place received 5 points, second 3 points and third 1 point. There was a prime lap mid race which was held at the starter’s discretion which was worth 3 points. It was great to see so many new faces at racing. Please remember to make these people feel welcomed by getting to know them better.
Thank you to Sue Cameron, Geoff & Tracey Hardaker and Dan & Meredith Gillespie for running the races.
Tonight marked the start of the Criterium season at our Toormina track which was raced in windy conditions...
