Road Race Report / Re: Mudgee Interclub Triathlon
« on: November 14, 2018, 06:20:58 AM »
Congratulations to Mudgee Red Devils Tri Club on 20years of hosting Central West Tri-Series Events:
(Cowra club also celebrated 20yrs having held their first Interclub event in December 1998) 

This weekend’s interclub Central West Triathlon Series event at Mudgee will be a significant event, being the 20 year Anniversary of the first Mudgee Interclub round in the summer of 1998/99.

Mudgee won the inaugural series and in the 20 years since the series recognised by Triathlon’s State Administration body TriNSW as they attempt to run divisional Championships across NSW.

The actual first interclub event was held Orange on 8th March 1998, with the Mudgee Club crown the first Regional Triathlon Champions (1997/98). Cowra holding the second Interclub event (which was round 1 of the 1998/99 series) in December 1998.

Mudgee held the second round 1998/99 series on the 21 March 1999 at the Mudgee Pool. The two Round 1998/99 series decided on points based on the top 5 men and women in both the Open Seniors and the Junior Category. Where as today’s series is decided on the results of the different Age Divisions rather than the overall.

Twenty years later Cowra have just hosted there 20year Anniversary opening round of the 2018/19 Series and the Mudgee Red Devils Tri Club will host round 2 of the 2018/19 series this weekend (18th November 2018).

Back in 1998/99, Mudgee dominated the outright placings in their inaugural Home Interclub Triathlon with 3 members in the all-important Top 5 in both the Senior Males and Senior Females, backing that up with 3 Males and 2 Females in the top 5 Junior Results.

Mudgee champ Nick Kastelein defeating teammate Jason Pattison with Mark Windsor who raced for Mudgee due to Bathurst not having a triathlon club finishing 5th. Dubbo’s Scott Stevenson and Cowra Champ Jeremy Ryan finishing 3rd and 4th.

Mudgee also first and second in the open Womens with Kim Thomas defeating Rhonda Gainsford while Giselle Denley finished 4th; Dubbo’s Triathletes Rebbecca Rolls third and Karen Salmon 5th.

Certainly some impressive performances in the juniors in 1998/99 Mudgee Round with Orange’s James McMillan in super form defeating good Mudgee Triathletes Nathan Evans, Josh Ludwick and the up&coming Matt Murphy. Brett Thoms of Cowra taking 5th points. In the junior girls Orange state level cyclist Leanne Nichols defeated Mudgee speedsters Tania Murphy and Lisa Marhoff.

Other Mudgee athlete to perform well in 1998/99 - Nathan Evans, Steve Hawkins, Adam Mort, Tony Muller, Mark Roth, Tim Russell, Robert Spearman, Greg Wilson, Michael Sharp, Vic Southgate and Paul Amos who also won a round of the Cycling Interclub Series at the time.

The warmup derbys set-up the riders for some excellent flying 200m times followed by some Sprint Match-ups.
Dan and Josh recording the fastest flying 200m times both stopping the clock at 12.36, but josh’s experience shone through later in the Sprint
Little between Brad and Drew’s 200m times with Brad recording 12.36 and Drew 12.85,

The Modern Day Remember Them Race

The modern era of the Memorial Cup is thought to have begun on Remembrance Day 2006 when the females raced for a Bathurst Womens Handicap Championship which was won by scratch marker Toreasa Gallagher defeating Jill Harris, Rosemary Hasting, Jasmine Lee and Kerryn Windsor finishing 5th infront of Marian Renshaw Gerry Stieda and Raewyn Simons.
That day a separate Mens Handicap was contested which was referred to as the Remembrance Day Race (or the Remember Them cup) it was won by a young Blair Windsor with scratchman Dean Windsor finishing 2nd and Fastest, then followed Bruce Goddard Dan Watson and Ryan O’Donnell in 5th in front of Mark Windsor, Scott Allen and Nick Mullin.
This inspired Bcc club legend Elaine Ryan on a searching mission for the Memorial Cup, which she located and the cup was again presented to Cruz Conroy in 2008.

2018 Remembrance Day Trophy Race:
The Bathurst Cycling Club “Remember Them” Trophy is very stately silver cup in honour of the fallen Bcc Members who gave their life in the World Wars. The event is scheduled on, (or around) Remembrance Day with local soldiers Robert Dale, Jack Sandry, Kenneth Adlem, Ron Harper and Ivor Ezzy acknowledged on the trophy.

The race has always been a relatively short Handicap event, giving riders of all levels an opportunity to race against the local champions for the historic trophy. The Cup first contested in the mid-1940s, when Bathurst Cycling Club life member Jack Mckay won the inaugural event, (over 72 years ago now).

In recent years the message behind the elegant cup and the significance of Remembrance Day has been highlighted by the local cycling club with the announcing each year of a local cycling World War veteran to be remembered for the following year, culminating in the Bathurst Anzac Trophy which will be named in honour.

World War Veterans honoured recently include R.H. Harris last year, and before that little John McKay (2017) E.Johnson (2016) R.G.Honeyman (2015) and Jack Windsor in 2014. This year’s Bathurst Cycling Clubs World War 1 Veteran will be named before the Remembrance Day event on Sunday. 

At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years continuous warfare in World War 1, so 2018 will be the 100 year anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War.

On Remembrance Day 2018 the Bathurst cycling club will again join Australians observing one minute’s silence in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts; but also continue its tradition of naming a local cycling WW1 veteran who they will investigate and remember so as to breathe life into their spirit in the lead up to the Anzac Day event to be named in their honour.

Road Race Report / Round 8 Bcc Road Series

X-Roads Graded Scratch Races:
Round 8 (Final Round) Bcc Road Series

The final round of the 2018 Bcc Road Series was held today in Bathurst with the club running four Graded Scratch races on the very tough Caloola Range Course.
Brad Rayner and Mark Windsor had the top 2 positions sewn up it the A Grade Title, but both where put on the back foot with European Professional Tim Guy starting very fast, pushing the pace to the Half Way Turn. On the return trip the trio of Guy, Rayner and Windsor launched a series of attacks with top class triathlete Denis Martin chasing hard to regain contact. In the closing stages Windsor tried to break clear but was soon caught with Guy kicking first in the dash to the line, however Rayner was on his wheel and the seasons most consistent Club Race rider jumped past Guy in the final few metres to take the win and secure a comfortable win the Club A Grade Road series championship over Windsor with (unofficially) Steve Dunstall third just in front of Richard Hobson.
World Masters Medalist Graeme Peadon of Dubbo and the promising Daniel Googe broke clear of the field early in the B Grade race however a strong chase group formed which included Mark Simons, Jodie Martin and Hayden Booth with Chris Davis, Brian Draper, Charlie Cross, Andrew McGrath, Steve Scott and Ian Glen riding strongly to get back in contention. However at the finish Graeme Peadon jumped clear for and impressive solo win from Daniel Googe with Jodie Martin the top placed female overall in 3rd place ahead of Hayden Booth and Mark Simons. Sixth place was Chris Davis with Brian Draper Charlie Cross Andrew McGrath and Steve Scott rounding out the top 10.

C Grade was dominated by series leader Rob Stephen Mick Foran and Jillene Harris, with the trio building a winning lead early in the race. In the closing stages Harris was caught up in a section of loose dirt and Foran jumped clear to take an exciting win from Harris and Stephens with Peter Wilson and Nev Krahe rounding out the top 5 from Glen Partridge.

D Grade was a was one of the day’s highlights with former junior champs Jim Allan and Pete McKinnon returning to racing. Jim Allan a former international level rider has been back on the bike for a year or so but this would have been the first time he and Pete McKinnon would have raced together for a couple of decades.
However it was another rider that came back to the sport recently claiming the win, with David Hyland rejoining the leaders after losing contract on the hill but finishing powerfully to win from Peter McKinnon and Norman Wise, with Jim Allen fourth and Rosie Hastings fifth.
