Results from Race 1


Munro/McDonough Memorial

Unfortunately, riders for the 4th Munro/McDonough Memorial brought to you by Banyule Cycling were greeted with wet weather which didn't stop for the entire race.  At the end it was two limit riders in the 63km distance which fought out the finish with Terry Hodges taking a great win.  Rod Scott flew the Banyule flag and picked up a great 2nd place.  The training is now paying off for Rod.  Fraser Short, also from Banyule Cycling did what many before him this year have failed to do and beat Darren Roberts for fastest time.  It was also great to see 3 women in the top 10 placings.  Also, no doubt a record we had 6 women starters from a field of 34, well done to all of them in the very miserable conditions.

Unfortunately, after reviewing the results Angelo DeFrancesco who was awarded the first unplaced over 65, should have actually been awarded to Peter Share, well done Peter and we will fix you up at your next race.

National Boulevard

Strong northerlies greeted 66 keen riders today for Northern's 8th criterium for the year across 5 grades.  In A grade Kos Samaras, attacked from the start line and opened up a 1:15min gap on the chasers before Darren Roberts, Phil Bramich and David Holt decided enough was enough and split the field before catching Kos.  At the finish Darren held off Holt by 6 inches with Kos coming in 3rd.  In the other grades the Riddell family had a great day with Scott getting up for his first B grade win ever and his wife Tamara taking out D grade in an impressive display in the biggest field of the day.  Paul James won C grade and Robin Condie from Eastern claiming E grade.  With Tamara's win and Allison Watt's 3rd in E grade, they both moved closer to Cristine Foster, with Riddell picking up some good points for the day to begin to challenge in the Women's Aggregate Club Champion (see leaderboard below)

Next Sunday marks the running of race 5 of the Super Series and honours two of Australia's greatest cyclists, Snowy Munro and Jack McDonough.  Registration will be a the Kyenton Bowling Club from 8.45am with racing on the 21km Pastoria circuit.  Please enter prior to Wednesday midnight
