Female Riders dominate the Track Champs

Bathurst Cycle Club held their first Track Championship event for the 2019 season with the 500 meter Time Trial Title contested in good conditions.

Josh Corcoran recording fastest time to take the Bathurst A Grade Title, recording 36.84seconds for the 500metres. It was a great result for Corcoran after taking a break from the sport at the end of 2018 after a tough European Trip during the year. Second in A Grade was Daniel Googe (37:00) who is a real find for the local club having only taken up the sport in the last 12 months.

Yet maybe the big story of the night is the performance of the female riders with Oceania Junior Champ Eliza Bennett (37:91) finishing 3rd in A grade. While Kalinda Robinson was on fire recording the 3rd fastest time overall in winning B Grade with an outstanding 37:01, the speedie Tyler Puzicha 2nd in B Grade with a sensational 37:17.

Bennett’s 3rd place in a local A Grade championship is a very unique performance and maybe even be the first time a female rider has finished on a A Grade podium. Yet Robinson’s time may even be the fastest set on the Bathurst Velodrome by a female rider.

The female domination continued in the lower grades with Toireasa Gallagher (43:94) defeating Marian Renshaw in the C Grade Championship and Catlin Lovett (43:10 winning the D grade.

The Junior title also dominated by the girls with Ebony Robinson (42:24) defeating Charlotte Lovett and Genna Gallagher.

Feeling a little better, a determined Hutton was keen to get things back on track with a win and defeated current club Road Champion Brad Rayner and Mark Windsor who has also placed in the top 20 of the Elite Mens Road National Championship on a number of occasions.
The exciting news for the club was young guns Dan Googe and Luke Tuckwell also in the top 5 in A Grade, of course Tuckwell a medallist this year at the Junior Nationals.
The winner of B Grade, Graeme Peadon has a great National Road Championships heritage, not only has he recorded some impressive placings in the open Men National Champions himself but his father won the Australian Road Championships. Peadon was an impressive winner out-sprinting a former Bathurst Road Champion Andrew Carter with David Reece 3rd who was the club rep at the World Road Masters Championships in Italy last year.
Champion Female cyclist Toireasa Gallagher has a podium finish at the Elite Women’s National Road Championships on her resume and was too strong for a Junior National Medallist Kalinda Robinson in C Grade, with very consistent Bruce Hutton third.
