The results of Sunday’s handicap race are attached.

There were 31 starters for the short 14.1km Dash/Screamer race over the 1 roads Newbridge turn course. Robyn Partridge started first 3.5 mins ahead of the next D grade riders. The first C grade riders started off a 6-min handicap. The first B grade riders started off a 10.5 min handicap and the first A grade riders off 12.5 mins. The scratch riders started with a 13-min handicap.

This race was the first under the control of the new 2018 Road Race Co-ordinator Glen Partridge who set the handicap. He did a good job as only 2 mins separated 1st – 13th place and only 3 mins separated 1st place to the fastest time place getter in 28th place. This put nearly all riders together on St Johns Road for the last 2km of the race.

The race was won by Ian McEwen who has only recently returned to racing after 3 months off. Second was Eliza Bennett who is in good form having recently taken 3rd place in the Remembrance Day race on the 12 November 2017. Third was Claire Kirby who has been riding well lately. Marian Renshaw showed good form to finish 6th, her track training showing through on this short course race.

Fastest female was Brooke Tuynman in 23rd place with a time of 22:52, only 15 sec ahead of the next fastest female Kalinda Robertson with a time of 23:07. Fastest male rider was Will Hodges in 28th place with a time of 19:36.
