2019 Bathurst Road championship:By Road Sub-Committee - June 16 2019
2019 Bathurst Road championship:
- Vale Circuit Course - 9th June 2019.
In a repeat of last year event Bradley Rayner has defeated Mark Windsor in the 2019 Bathurst Cycling Clubs A Grade Road Cycling Championship.
Similar to last year, the championship was contested on historic Vale Circuit Racing circuit with 8 riders in contention in the A Grade title on the final lap of the championship. Mark Windsor attacking on the climbs however Rayner and Gascoyne quickly closed it down only to have Chris Couper break clear in the final few kilometres of the championship.
After working with Mark Hoyer to come back into contention Stuart Renshaw tried to jump across to Couper however Charlie Gascoyne and Luke Tuckwell also chased hard and the whole group came back together. Defending Champ Brad Rayner surprised everyone by jumping away again, this time with a winning break; Windsor chasing him home in second and the promising Daniel Googe sprinting over former World Masters Champ Charlie Gascoyne for the bronze medal.
Rayner was excited to retain his champion title in the top grade given the quality of the Bathurst Honour Roll. Only European Professional Dean Windsor, Craig Hutton and Blair Windsor able to win back to back titles in the last couple of decades. For Mark Windsor it was the sixth time he has finished runner-up in the A Grade championship in the last 20years however he was quick to praise Rayner as the best rider on the day. Daniel Googe’s effort to defeat former World masters Champion Charlie Gascoyne for 3rd place in the A Grade championships was a breakthrough performance for the young rider who has quickly worked his way through the grades after taking up the sport less than 2 years ago.
B Grade Championship went to David Reece after he broke clear with Jack Cannon Tony Shaw and Orange rider Drew Tuckwell. Reece to fast in the sprint to finish defeating Jack Cannon and Tony Shaw in third in the 2019 B Grade Title. Former A Grade champion Rob Stephen leading the chase home to take 4th place.
Braedon Smith was too powerful in the closing stages of the C Grade Championship defeating David McKellar and Peter Wilson and a number of visiting riders lead home by Orange junior Xavier Bland and Penrith's Martin Dalitz. While Jette McKellar won the 2019 D Grade championship, and also finished second overall in the Top female title behind Kalinda Robinson.
Although Robinson considers herself a track specialist she is a national junior medallist on the road and certainly is a fine addition to the impressive honour roll for the Championship Female Road Rider of Bathurst.
