SERIES 2 (Sept/Oct 2021) National Club ESports Series

RACE 5 - Wednesday 13 October 2021 – 6:30PM (Daylight Saving Time)
27 km Mountain bike race in the Watopian Jungle on the Serpentine8 Course –
This course is a bit of a mystery to most of the team as few have used the mountain bikes in Zwift, so the setups will be interesting.



Bathurst still have a chance of the podium with only 1 round remaining of the Auscycling National Club Esports Cycling Series. Bathurst remain in fifth place behind Canberra’s Vikings Cycling Club who look to have the series won with 1542 points. The Bathurst Cycling Club are in a tight battle for third place with eRANDWICK and Waratah Masters Cycling Club, only 76pts separating the 3 clubs going into the final round.

20 Bathurst riders finished the 5th round of the series this week, and although that was down on recent rounds the locals ranked high in most of the grades contested. Attached is the list of Bathurst Team finishers (RACE 5 National Club ESports Series) where - Alex Banner, Angela Falzarano, Laura Renshaw, Claire Scott, Toireasa Gallagher, Charlotte Lovett - Mark Windsor, Luke Tuckwell, Jack Reen, Jeff Frank, Matt Cowley, Cal Baker, Jack Cannon, Cadel Lovett, Cameron Arnold, Ryan ODonnell, Peter Wilson, Gary Hamer, Gary Baker & Steve Cox.

In the female events Toireasa Gallagher was again one of the clubs best performers featuring on the podium again in the D Grade Women event, likewise Laura Renshaw performed well just missed the podium in C grade finishing 4th with the very consistent Claire Scott again in the top 20 in C Grade.
Promising youngster Charlotte Lovett impressed in had her first ESports race finishing in the points and just one place behind former National Road and Track champion Julie Speight. Meanwhile Bathurst had two riders in the female B Grade with Alex Banner and Angela Falzarano riding well to finish 13th and 14th respectively.

Former Bathurst junior Zac Marshall showed his class winning the overall  A Grade men’s event defeating Ryland Short and Ben Hill (a former wearer of yellow jersey in the Tour of Slovenia) in a time of 36min 35.9sec. But luck wasn’t with the talented young Illawarra cyclist as he was removed from the results after losing his Heart Rate connection in the race.
Bathurst’s Mark Windsor continues to climb the ranking with another top 10 finish in A Grade he now moves to 5th overall behind Series 1 winner Chris Ling (Randwick) with Ben Hill (Canberra) Jonathon Cridland (Southern Cross) Nick Squillari (Hawthorn) and Windsor making up the top 5. Western Division Esports Cycling Champ Luke Tuckwell finished 13th in A Grade, while Jack Reen continues to improve recording 44m41 for the 27km in the top grade.

Bathurst had it best ever results in the B grade men’s event, with 4 riders finishing with top 30 series points. Jeff Frank recording the best finished by a local team member in B Grade this season finishing 12th in the big field, with Matt Cowley also finishing up with the leaders in 18th place. Also scoring points in B Grade Cal Baker and Jack Cannon with top 30 positions, while promising young rider Cadel Lovett wasn’t much further back recording 44min 09sec for the 27km followed in by the hard riding Cameron Arnold.

Ryan O'Donnell continued his great start to Cycling's Virtual world, scoring big points for the club with another podium finish in C Grade, his impressive results will see him re handicapped to B Grade for the final round of the series. Meanwhile Peter Wilson had his best ride in the series so far scoring top 30 Series Points in the very competitive C Grade event. After a series of falls out on the road Peter has been continuing to improve through the ranks in ESports Cycling and it comes as no surprise to now feature in the series points. After winning his way through D Grade in Series 1 Gary Hamer continues to improve in C Grade with another good finish in Round5.

Bathurst can always rely on Gary Baker and Steve Cox for points in D Grade the pair always perform well Gary was 12th in round 5 with Steve just a bit further back in 18th position.

RACE 1 - Wednesday 15 September 2021

The pace was on in A Grade, with the strongest field to ever race one of the Renshaw’s Pedal Project Events. Riders from all 4 major centres in the Western Division (Bathurst Dubbo Orange and Mudgee) racing for overall victory.

In the end it was the current Western NSW Esports champions Luke Tuckwell of Orange (& Bathurst Club) and Kate Spicer of Dubbo that took overall victory in the open men and womens events.

Luke Tuckwell set up his win with an attack in the final 2kms of the event which brought all 4 Dubbo Riders (Kurt & Dylan Eather Simon Heppell and Spicer)to the front of the pack to chase. In an impressive display Tuckwell hung on for victory infront of the fast finishing Nick North who is continuing to improve after recovering from a recent injury. Third was a dead heat between top young cyclist Dylan Eather (Dubbo) and Cadel Lovett (Bathurst) with Race One winner Mark Windsor (Bathurst) and Dubbos Simon Heppell rounding out the top5 overall.

Western Regions top ranked rider on the road at the last two regional Road Championships Kurt Eather (Dubbo) was next to finish. It was an impressive display by Eather who may not have won but put out almost 350watts average for the race, which is very close to the record for an RPP event.

Craig McAlister (Bcc Vic) Cameron Arnold  (BxCC) and Stuart Renshaw (Bathurst) rounded out the top 10 in A Grade, with a special mention to Craig McAlister who has rapidly climbed the ranking from C Grades only a matter of weeks ago to establish himself now in A Grade.

Runner up in the recent Overall Men Western NSW ESports Title Mark Windsor took-out the Green Sprint Jersey in A Grade recording 24.20sec to defeat Dubbo pair Simon Hepple and Kurt Eather.

Tuckwell makes his move:

Stephen Jackson shows his experience in B Grade:
Bathurst most experienced ESports Cyclist Stephen Jackson put in a personal best performance to win B Grade in the Weekends RPP Lockdown Cycle Race. Jackson recording a very fast 27min 43sec to defeat Western Region Female Champion Kate Spicer of the Dubbo Cycling Club.

Ray Thorn (Bathurst) is the big improver in the sport, finishing in 3rd place in B Grade winning a 5 ride sprint to the finish, defeating Bathurst team mates Steve Bennett, Luke Gilmer, David Reece and Jack Cannon, with only a handful of seconds separating the 5 riders.

Bathurst club rider and current Western NSW C Grade Champ Paul Jones (Victoria) took the Green Jersey in B Grade after a blistering sprint, recording 24.03sec to not only win B Grade but set the fastest time overall.
Meanwhile recent gold medallist at the Western NSW ESports Titles in the B Grade Female Category, Jenn Arnold was again the top Female performer in the grade.

Mudgee Win the C Grade Event
Mudgee rider Jeff Frank certainly got under the handicappers guard in the weekends C Grade Lockdown race, Frank not only winning c Grade but finishing Top 10 overall in a super time of 27m37s, the performance will mean he is likely to go straight to A Grade from C grade.

Seb Hanscomb of Dubbo rode well to finish 2nd in C Grade in front of former Bathurst coach Mick Marshall (now of Illawarra). After winning D Grade at the last the last Lockdown event Mick Robinson (Bathurst) showed he is well up to C Grade finishing 4th infront of Adam Young (AHDR). John Curley (Dubbo) taking 6th place in front of Peter Wilson (Bathurst) and current Western NSW D grade male champ Gary Baker.

Jeff Frank also won the Green “Sprint” jersey recording 26:42 to defeat Adam Young (AHDR).
