Northern continues VVCC domination

Northern continues to dominate this year’s VVCC Opens with Terry Duggan taking out the EVCC Open at Learmonth last Sunday.

Terry managed to snatch victory from Geelong’s Amanda Hosking after she overhauled a somewhat sheepish Emilio Romano in what would have been an embarrassing defeat for both Northern and the whole Italian community!

Emilio admitted that he thought he had the race won on his New Bianchi from Bikeforce in Richmond, when he went far too early only to find Amanda overhauling him at the 200m mark. Fortunately for all Terry was given a lead out by our own David Halliday, managed to jump onto Amanda’s wheel and save the day by catching her only metres from the line. Third place went to Eureka’s Brad Eppingstall, with Emilio hanging on for 5th.  Emilio was speechless after the race, having being offered a walking stick by fellow rider Peter Mazzarella, which was quickly discarded before any photographic evidence could be obtained, his only comments "I went too early, what can I do?".  It felt like Northern took out fastest time as well, with our adopted Nick Kennedy (Colac) claiming that title in what was a another great ride off scratch.

A beautiful sunny morning provided a terrific days racing with a huge bunch finish. Thanks to the VVCC and Eureka for putting on a great race and the huge after-race spread, and thanks to all the marshals, officials and volunteers who helped out on the day.

Father's Day Crits

Raising money for Prostate Cancer

Thanks to everyone who made the effort and who enjoyed a great days racing at National Boulevard.  A big thanks to Allison, who arranged for on line donations and to all riders whose generosity in racing for no prize money helped raise in excess of $1500 towards Prostate Cancer Research.

Thanks also to Club members Mark Collins, who donated first and second prizes on the day to help celebrate Fathers Day and Tamara Riddell, who also donated a prize for the ride of the day. Also to Heath from Bikeforce Richmond who again generously donated raffle prizes for our next crit day at National Boulevard.

Fathers day

Congratulations to all grade winners and especially to Kevin Russell, who rode a terrific race to take out the Fathers Day ‘One Tough Dadda Award’ for his long solo breakaway win in B grade (above). The days racing was hotly contested with a number of close finishes, including a dead heat in E grade (below).  RESULTS.  It was a great days racing, so thanks to everyone who participated.

Welcome Spring

Lancefield/Pastoria Scratch Races

RESULTS

A cracking pace from the outset created a really tough race in A grade which had the peloton almost constantly in the gutter the for the first 20km.  Eventually attacks from Phil Smith, Michael Borowski and then Nick Kennedy and Darren Roberts created the break up Bald Hill which was never caught, despite a valliant effort from Paul Logan and Tom McDonough and then later the entire chasing bunch.  The break of 4 hit the line with just under two minutes on the remaining field.  Due to the high speed the race time was almost 4 min quicker than the Club Championships a few months ago which then decimated the entire field.  Great racing to all involved.

Thank you to Tre Cafe in Brunswick for your generous donation towards this race which made sure of good prize money for all grades across small fields.  Also a big thanks to Albert Rain for standing in for Harry, Chooka for pitching in and helping as he always does and again Bruce Logan for his great work running registration and the camera and finish work.
