Road Race Report / 2022 Carroll/Scott Memorial Triathlon
« on: March 20, 2022, 06:37:39 PM »
13th running of the Carroll/Scott Memorial Triathlon Today.
The inaugural event was held February 2008 but in recent times the event sadly had to be cancelled a couple of times due to covid19 and road permissions.   
Considered much more than just the premier trophy race of the Bathurst Wallabies Triathlon club’s calendar, in the early days the event was also considered the club championship. It is also very much a part of the club’s DNA as it is linked to the establishment of the club, remembering life members Dave Carroll and Dave Scott who were both at the initial meeting to discuss the forming of the club. 

The men’s event has been dominated by 2 athletes, Richard Hobson in the early years and then Nick North.
It was Nick North that continued this amazing record again in 2022 defeating Will Kelly and Mark Windsor in the feature event setting the fastest time for that course this summer. Former Club Champ Josh Stapley 4th with Sebastian Prior rounding out the top 5 in front of Declan.
Nick now has the remarkable record of racing the Carroll/Scott Memorial Triathlon 8 times and winning every time he has started it.

While there has been a female winner each year since the 2008 event, it seems Carroll/Scott Memorial trophy for the female triathletes was first awarded in 2012. In that time there has been many impressive winners however the 2022 winner Mercede Cornelius-Feltus will certainly go down as one of the most impressive; doing an extra lap in the pool before winning in an excellent time. Top Bathurst sportswomen Candice Falconer was runner up in front of Chelsea Hosking with Tania Pringle and Virginia van Gend making up the top 5, and Fallon Weal, Bec Oconnor and Amanda Robinson rounding out the top 8.

The Club also held a Long Course Support Event which was won by Aaron Burgess in the mens category and one of Bathurst top endurance athletes Kathleen Stutsel defeating  Catherine West, with Barb Hill talking 3rd infront of Rebecca Hamment.

Road Race Report / 20km BCC Bathurst Isuzu Ute Handicap

20km BCC Bathurst Isuzu Ute Handicap – 30/01/2022
Eventful start to the Local Isuzu Ute Bathurst Cycling Club Event (presented by Clancy)  with competitors having to wait for the floodwaters to clear then a change to the course due to the heavy rain overnight in Bathurst.
Once racing started Bec OConnor look set for an all the way win but the BackMarkers burst onto the scene in the final couple of kilometres to steal the win.

Bec OConnor led the way from Rosemary Hastings Cathy Adams and Lara Allen early in the race, with a bunch that included Phil McFarland Peter Hickey Bruce Hutton Scott Allen and Jille Harris looking the main threat to the leaders.
At the turn Bec OConner was riding strongly and looked to have built a winning lead however a bunch of Middle Markers including Glen Partridge Darren Fenton Rob Stephen Peter Wilson Glen Carter Phil Stapleton & Rod Esdaile had moved into second place on the road and looked threatening.
However there was also plenty of action at the back of the race with Craig Hutton and David Nicolas quickly joining Nicholas Barrett Jack Cannon and Mark Windsor and soon after joining Steve Scott Dave Reece and promising young orange rider Oscar Hanson after fast starts.
With less than 3 kilometres to the finish Bec OConnor was still leading but was starting to tire after the long solo ride and suddenly the backmarkers burst onto the scene to fight out the finish.
Jack Cannon the first to go however Craig Hutton brought him back only to have David Nicolas and Nicholas Barrett sprint past to take first and second, Jack Cannon Mark Windsor rounding out the top 5.
Leading the next group in was Bruce Hutton and Darren Fenton in front of Glen Partridge Rob Stephen Peter Wilson rounding out the top 10 in front of top placed female Jille Harris and Phillip McFarland in 12th place.
After all his recent representation duties including a medal at the Paralympics at Tokyo Dave Nicholas has been looking easy back and enjoy his cycling more. The more relaxed approach is certainly paying dividends, as his first and fastest performance in the weekends event would be probably his best performance since racing with the Bathurst Club; his time for the event 24:26 was very fast. Meanwhile Jille Harris finished fast to defeat the unlucky Bec O’Connor for first female

Screamer All-In Handicap – 2022 underway!!
Bathurst Cycling Club held its first Sunday Club Race for 2022 on the weekend using the short fast Screamer course to kick the year off with some intense cycle action.
Frontmarkers Amanda Robinson and Bec OConner combined well to hold a good lead during the early stages of the 20km handicap event, with initially the challenge initially coming from Cathy Adams and Lara Adams who were being in turn chased by Scott Allen and Jill Harris.
However by the mid-way point it was clear that the 5minute bunch of Glen Partridge, Bruce Hutton, Darren Fenton and Gary Hamer looked the biggest threat to the early leaders, with the 4min group of Toireasa Gallagher, Peter Wilson and Rob Stephen trying very hard to close the gap.
The back markers looked unlikely to feature in the finish with lone scratch marker Craig Hutton set a difficult task to get across to the 45sec block group of Jack Cannon Mark Windsor who were catching the 2min brunch led by Ray Thorn, Robert Jeffries and Tony Barlow and also the 3min group of Steven Scott, Rod Esdaile and Damien Bennett.
In the final couple of kilometres Gary Hamer, Glen Partridge and Darren Fenton caught the leaders with Jille Harris going with the trio to make a 4 rider sprint to the finish were Darren Fenton took the win from Gary Hamer and Glen Partridge. Jille Harris the top placed female rider in fourth place with Cathy Adams fifth infront of Toireasa Gallagher and Peter Wilson. Ray Thorn, Mark Windsor and Steve Scott rounding out the top 10.
After 40years of Club racing Mark Windsor was excited about taking fastest time in the first race of 2022, recording 25m23sec for the 20km event, however he quickly admitted having a bit of luck defeating Craig Hutton and co marker Jack Cannon for the honour. Fastest Female honours going to Toireasa Gallagher in 28min 57sec .

The Female race became a great 3 way battle, with Fran Walker holding a solid lead early in the race but both Ella Falzarano and Charlotte Lovett chasing hard.
On the final climb Ella Falzarano showed plenty of talent to finish 13th overall and only a couple of minutes down on the winner to take the win and fastest female trophy.
Meanwhile Charlotte Lovett and Fran Walker where still racing for the top Bathurst Club Female category with Charlotte Lovett praising her dad Rod for encouraging her to catch as past Fran in the final stages of the race.

Race Report “The Bathurst Isuzu Ute 2021 Rockley Cup presented by Clancy Motors Bathurst...........
Early leaders Fran Walker Peter Hickey and David Hyland started strongly but broke up on the early hills allowing the 35min group of Nev Krahe, Peter Wilson, Mick Foran, Charlotte Lovett and Cameron Crump to catch the leading trio. Behind them Rod Esdaile and Bryce Staker looks to have a tough task with the 22min bunch (which included Sean Bloch, Rod Lovett, David Reece, Ella Falzarano, Stuart Jakeman, Drew Tuckwell & Ray Thorn) moving quickly toward the race lead.
Facing a 12min gap to the next bunch the 9min Bunch (Dennis Martin Jack Cannon Nick Barrett Sturt Renshaw and Mark Windsor) started fast hoping to get in contention, but the plan didn’t work as the bunch split up before the first climb which meant they would soon be caught by the back 3 bunches.
The scratch bunch of Tom Chester, Sam Greenwood, Devraj Grewal, Luke Tuckwell, Ben Spenceley, Luke Britten & Luke Roper looked smooth and fast early in the race, holding a pace certain to have them in contention for the race win. In front of them, the 3min Block group (Ben Anderson, Dylan Eather, Hugh Sessini, Asher Fawle, Brayden Bloch
& Ryan Britten) and 6min bunch (Cadel Lovett, Oscar Jakeman, Jack Reen, Oscar Hansen, Xavier Bland, Joshua Ludman, Josiah Grierson & Joshua Early) where hoping to hold off the scratch bunch but the signs where there early that the 2021 race would come together.
In the second half of the race it was Sean Bloch and the 22min bunch that looked a chance of hanging on for the win; however Tom Chester called on Sam Greenwood for a bit extra in the Scratch Bunch and the race came down to a sprint between Chester and Devraj Grewal, with Tom winning by 10m from Devraj, with last year’s fastest time winner Luke Tuckwell just behind the pair in third place. Hugh Sessini rode well off Block to finish 4th in front of Josiah Grierson and the luckless Sean Bloch. While top class Orange Junior Ben Anderson was 7th in front of Sam Greenwood and promising Bathurst junior Cadel Lovett with Ben Spenceley rounding out the top 10 .

This 1969 Rockley Cup was a NSW League of Wheelman Championship Promotion, with the Senior Race supported on the day by a number of Junior State championships in a giant day of cycling for the Bathurst. 
Bathurst Champion Jeff Rice chasing down two good riders Robert Fisher (Cowra) and John McLean (Nowra) to win the inaugural Rockley Cup in 1969, with Dubbo champ Darrell Wheeler recording a very fast 1hr 46 06sec to set course record that wouldn’t be bettered for a decade when Olympian and top class professional Rob Whetters took first and fastest.
The 2021 Rockley Cup was sponsored by the Bathurst Isuzu Ute and faced a number of unusual challenges such as Covid19 and floods.. but in the end an excellent field faced the starter with Rauland Cycling Team entering the event after coming west for a training camp. So with the help of all the race officials and sponsors Bathurst Isuzu Ute, Clancy Motors Bathurst, Bathurst Cardiology the 2021 Rockley Race continued as the premier Handicap Trophy Race on the Bathurst Calendar.
