Pro Racing / Trofeo Citta di Brescia (UCI 1.2)
« on: July 09, 2018, 07:41:44 AM »
Tim's important DNF in the Trofeo Citta di Brescia

Maybe its races like the Trofeo Citta di Brescia (UCI 1.2) that really allow us to get a look at the roller coaster lifestyle of the full time cyclist.   

Tim Guy and his Ljubljana Gusto Xaurum team mates including Aussie Ben Hill where coming off the hype of their success in their home tour at Slovenia racing against some of the world great cycling teams.
See -

However, there is no time to sit back and pat yourself on the back; your back-in-the-saddle training the next morning and the following weekend there will be another race with another set of challenges. One of those challenges is the better you perform the greater the desire of your opposition to defeat you.

For Tim Guy the race was simply a build-up event for the Tour of Hungry next month, Tim hoping to get miles in those leg after a series of training interruption recently.

With the 121.8km Trofeo Citta di Brescia held in the evening and consisting of many laps of a short circuit in Brescia it was difficult to compare the conditions in Italy to anything they would experience in Hungry. Yet there is no point questioning this, as procycling is just about getting harder and tougher, and growing to meet the demands of all races as the sport is tough and you need to be versatile to survive.

BUT here are Tim Guy’s Comments after the race --
"Absolutely crazy. 5.5km circuit, 21 laps. Started at 8pm on a cobbled 1km decent with 5 switch backs. Got dark in first half hour, there were no lights on large chunks of the course and a thunderstorm hit 2 laps in."

In hindsight a cobble decent straight off the start would be a factor to consider prior to the event. There was no Big Tour rolling neutral starts with a relaxing nature break at the Citta di Brescia, it was just hyped up Italians. As you would expect only 23 finished the race which was won by the unsigned Italian Rocchetti Filippo in 3hr04m49s.

But as Tim knows now if you are going to race in Europe you need to bounce-up, adapt and grow.. because sadly humans don’t grow in the right direction in the comfort zone..

Tim explained that
"Ben and I both picked up a stomach bug a few days ago and I'm still battling. Have not eaten a thing."

Certainly this would explain why the boys where on the back foot from the start, Tim actually using the decent to get back on the pack after getting squeezed out the back in the surges.. Of course this is the opposite circumstances to normal with Tim more a climber, so strangely a weak point of Tim cycling was targeted in this event and he had to face it.

Tim has grown in the Citti De Brescia, he knows to survive on the cycling roller coaster and reach his potential, he has to find some positive when floundering around in the Uncomfortable Zone.. and grow to cope.. So I was impressed at the end of a very irate cantankerous negative Tim Guy Race Report when he finished with –

“Actually, the race was still pretty darn cool. Crazy Italians, but cool.”

Bounce-up, adapt and grow.. I am not expecting Tim to descend like Froome, but he will be better for the Citta di Brescia.. Wait a minute! How did Froome become such a good descender –
#Growing in the Old UnComfortable Zone!
#The Uncomfortable Zone, the secret to success!

final day -

A Memorable 2018 Tour of Slovenia:

After a shaky start for both locals, with Mark Renshaw falling in Stage 1 and Tim Guy missing the race all together, things have worked out very well for the pair.

In fact Tim Guy as a Ljubljana Gusto Xaurum team sponsor couldn’t be happier -- with team mate Ben Hill wearing both the KOM and Overall Leaders jersey during the Tour - and then outstanding prospect Tadej Pogacar winning the Best Young Rider classification on the final day of competition and finishing an amazing 4th overall.

While things just got better each day for Local Champion Mark Renshaw.

He was to start 2 week of competition on day 1 of the Tour of Slovenia when he had the fall, in a mission to improve fitness for the Tour de France after a season full of setbacks. If the fall forced a withdrawal from the race his 2018 Tour de France Plans would of have been under threat, instead he has improved each day and now continues to build to the 2018 Tour de France at his next assignment the Adriatica Lonica Tour.

Road Race Report / Corcoran Hodges & Bolton head to Belgium
« on: June 20, 2018, 07:55:32 AM »
Young local cyclist heading to Europe for their summer:

Bathurst GPM Stulz cyclist Josh Corcoran was the first of 3 local cyclists heading to Belgium for a couple of months while the Australian NRS calendar is having a quiet period in mid-winter.

Corcoran has teamed up with Ghent cycling mentor Staf Boone for his stay in Belgium hoping to learn as much as he can in his Kingsnorth Wheelers Development Program. Boone has decades of experience and has been involved with some of the past team mates of Bathurst’s Windsor brothers including Doug Repacholi who rode with Blair at Budget Forklifts and Dean Downing who was with Dean Windsor at both Rapha and Endura Pro Teams along with Jack Bauer (Endura) who was also part of the Staf Boone Program.

Also heading to Belgium - are Will Hodges (GPM Stulz) and Tom Bolton (Oliver’s Real Foods) with both expected to arrive in the next week and race shortly after. Will is a CSU student from Cowra who rides for the Bathurst Club while Tom rides for the Dulwich Hill Cycle Club but both riders have been living and training in Bathurst prior to leaving for the trip.

Pro Racing / Bassevelde Open Omloop 1.12A
« on: June 20, 2018, 07:52:17 AM »
Young Bathurst Rider Josh Corcoran Belgium trip:

Bathurst GPM Stulz cyclist Josh Corcoran has quickly settled into the Belgium races having already raced 4 times, and finishing only 32sec behind race winner Steven Caethoven in his last start, the Bassevelde Open Omloop – (1.12A) on 19/06/2018.

Steven Caethoven (who rides for Decock/Van Eyck/Devos/Capoen) defeated Guy Ten Hartog (Dirk Verstuyft) and Kristof Dhollander (Thielemans De Hauwere) in the 125km event on the roads north of Ghent. A former World Tour Pro for many years, Caethoven is still in good form having won a number of events this year and is remembered in Australia for defeating Stuey OGrady in a stage of the Tour down Under when riding for Topsport Vlaanderen. Corcoran ride was impressive finishing in the main bunch in 37th place in 2hrs 43m 43s.

The Bassevelde race came after events on the 9th, 11th and 16th June for Corcoran. On the 16/06/18 he raced the 120 km Wetteren Ten Ede event, which was won by former Robobank Pro Hans Dekkers, while on the 11th June he raced the 110km Ursel (1.12B) Omloop which was won by Team Wales U23 Academy Rider Will Roberts.

Josh’s first race in Belgium was the 120km St Katelijne Waver race on the 9th June, just north of Brussels, where he rode aggressively to make the early break. He slipped out of contention in the final stages of the race won by Belgian Pauwel Verhulst ( Baguet / MIBA / Indulek / Derito) but showed the skills to be competitive in the tough events.

All in Handicap:
Good field lined up in the weekends Bathurst Cycling Clubs handicap considering the cold tough windy conditions.
Experienced riders Marian Renshaw and Rosemary Hastings had control of things early with the leaders working smoothly. But it was C Grade group that would soon challenge for the lead an look an excellent chance of winning.

Back in the field the 3 Backmarkers (Hutton Rayner & Windsor) had started fast to work off there 23minutes handicap. While impressive youngsters Luke Tuckwell and Ben Anderson had the experience of Richard Hobson and Ryan ODonnell in their 3 minute bunch and where making the ground on the B Grade bunch.

However at the final turn it was the three backmarker lead by Craig Hutton who raced to the lead that fast that only Tony Shaw could follow them. On the final climb Tony Shaw lost contact leaving Craig Hutton Brad Rayner and Mark Windsor fight out the finish.
Hutton took a well deserved win with Rayner second and Windsor third, Tony Shaw’s 4th place was another good performance for the cycling newcomer with Richard Hobson in the prizemoney in his first race since the Grafton to Inverell Race.

Rosemary Hastings who was close to the lead for the entire race was a very deserving winner of the best placed female on the day.

Senior Results:
Dubbo take both Mens and Womens Titles at the 2018 WD Champs

Bathurst Cycling Club hosted its first road race at the multimillion dollar Bathurst Bicycle Park on the weekend with the 2018 Western Division Road Championships starting and finishing at the venue. Although the road racing tracks at the Park have not been completed race officials Elaine Ryan and Glen Allen reported the racing on the temporary course went very well, with Western Region Cycling President Mark Windsor very impressed with the quality of the racing.

While it was the Orange club that defeated Bathurst in the final of the Mark Renshaw Junior Cup at the end of a full program of Junior Championship in the morning at Mt Panorama, but it was the Dubbo club that dominated the Senior Program at the Bike Park, with exciting young riders Kurt Eather and Haylee Fuller taking the Champion Men and Women’s Titles.

With an excellent record in recent A Grade championships it was the Bathurst riders that went on the attack early in the 55km premier A Grade Title, with Jeremy Ryan, Mark Windsor and Craig Hutton all breaking clear, hoping to give the Bathurst Club the early control of the race. However, the strong Dubbo team quickly chased and neutralised the moves, resulting in a bunch of riders returning to the Bike Park for a show down on the hill they affectionate called the “Mother in-law”.

It was here that National Junior Champion Kurt Eather showed his class kicking past his brother Dylan to claim at comfortable win from Dubbo team mate Tim Hines with Bathurst’s Brad Rayner third infront of Dylan Eather, Craig Hutton and Daniel Barber. Steve Dunstall and Jeremy Ryan where next follow by Richard Hobson and Ryan ODonnell with Jason Farr rounding out the top 10 in front of Dennis Martin and top-class female rider Emily Watts who did not qualify for a title as she now rides for a Sydney Club to contest the NRS competition.

Another very promising rider, 13year old Ben Anderson of Orange defeated Dubbo’s world masters championship medallist Graeme Peadon in B Grade with Bathurst’s Will Lesh taking the Bronze. Next to finish was Haylee Fuller, Luke Tuckwell, Stuart Renshaw, Drew Tuckwell followed by Jodie Martin, David Reece and Tony Shaw rounding out the Top10 ahead of Daniel Googe, Alex Jones and Alex Russell.

Haylee Fuller’s 4th overall giving her the 2018 Champion female title ahead of Bathurst pair Jodie Martin and Kalinda Robinson with Toireasa Gallagher 4th and Zara Fuller rounding out the top 5 in the 2018 Women Championship.

Orange veteran Gary Halloran recorded an impressive victory in the Combined C&D Grade race defeating Blue Mountains Climber Kevin Bell and talented Dubbo junior Zac Fuller with Toireasa Gallagher and Graham Stait finishing just behind the trio. Next to finish was Orange’s Ivan Podres with Glen Carter, Michael Robinson, Mitch Bland and Zara Fuller rounding out the top 10.
