Road Race Report / 2017 Remembrance Day Trophy Race:
« on: December 19, 2017, 05:11:14 AM »
David Hyland claims his biggest race win:
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 long running road race, (starting in the 1940’s), gives riders of all levels an opportunity to win with a handicap format to decide the winner of the trophy. In fact since the trophy was reintroduced to the local cycling Calendar, the Backmarkers have never caught the very motivated outmarkers to claim the trophy. 2013 winner Michael Robinson having a lot to do with this, delivering a stirring introduction to the 2014 event explaining if there was ever a race where you try a little harder for the guys you a riding with, it is this race.
It was the out markers again winning in 2017 with David Hyland, riding off 18min taking the win from co marker John Kitchen with Eliza Bennett in third place with 12minute co marker Chris McEwan 4th ahead of Rosemary Hastings and Norman Wise both off 15minutes. Fastest Time going to Craig Hutton (Scratch) in 0:37:35

Road Race Report / 2017 Screamer/Dash
« on: December 19, 2017, 04:30:54 AM »
The 2017 Screamer:
Around the year 2000 Club Development Officer (JDO) Johnny Stephens re introduced a cycling event between Bathurst and Perthville & return, which would be the shortest event on the local Road Calendar and focused on Harold Buttsworths long standing race record. The event was referred to as the Record Breakers or The Screamer and later The Dash.
Although the race would change courses a number of time it remains today as a celebration of cycling on the Vale Road. Johnny Stephens re-introduced the Record Breakers “Screamer” event to pay respect for the past performances on the historical course; in doing so he made a connection to the earliest road cycling courses used in Bathurst.
Club records showing the Bathurst Pro Club racing on the course in the 1890s when the Safety Bicycle become more assessable, with a formal event contested by the League of Wheelmen racing on the course in September 26th 1896, while earlier in the 1890s the Cycling Union was using a Road Race loop course on the Vale Road.
The 2017 Screamer was won by Ian McEwen riding off 9 min Handicap with state junior rep Eliza Bennett second off 7minutes, 3rd was Claire Kirby riding off 9:30 min and the top 5 David Hyland and Tom McClelland.
Traditionally there is a big focus on Fastest time honors, and although well out of the placing, Cowra champ Will Hodges recorded a very impressive 19:36 for the event, while the Fastest female was Brooke Tuynman in 22:52

Road Race Report / 2017 Hotel Canobolas Christmas Cup
« on: December 19, 2017, 03:55:39 AM »
Rees wins 10th Edition of the Hotel Canobolas Christmas Cup:
Orange cycling premier Handicap event, the Hotel Canobolas Christmas Cup returned to the Forest Road Huntly Road course in 2017 for the 10th anniversary of the iconic event.
The event was dominated by the outmarkers with Orange’s Dave Rees defeating team mate Sue Bonnar who was also second overall and fastest female in 2014. Popular Bathurst riders Rosemary Hastings and Caroline Robinson taking 3rd and 4th placings with 2013 winner Matt McGrath finishing 5th.
Cowra’s Will Hodges who rides for the Bathurst Cycling Club recorded fastest time in the event for the second year in a row. This is something to be proud of, given the quality of scratch markers in the race over the last decade, including Bathurst superstar Mark Renshaw.
Likewise Orange’s Katey Sutton claimed the prestigious Female Fastest Time award in 2017 which was won by top NSW representative Leonie Burford in the inaugural event when European Professional Dean Windsor finished first and fastest.

As always Orange’s Brian Kennelly and Julie Middleton are in the mix while both Phil Tudor (Orange) and Cowra’s Andrew Fisher currently hold places in the top 20 in the 50-54 qualifying. There are plenty of other in the mix with the orange club boosting a large number of members in the points....

Good Start for Julian Woods – Bcc Handicap Nov 2017

New Art Gallery Curator Julian Woods has made a nice start at the Bathurst Cycling Club winning his first race with the club. Julian actually rode in last year’s World Age Championships in Albi France so he looked a great chance right from the start after receiving a generous handicap.

Strong C Grade riders Hayden Booth and Rob Stephen chased hard and although not catching Wood took second and third.
The Backmarkers where lead home by Harry Carter who recorded Fastest Time and finishing in 9th place on handicap while the first female finisher was Caroline Robertson.

Track Racing / 2017 Oceania Track Championships
« on: November 20, 2017, 05:30:17 AM »
Bathurst's Harry Carter in NZ for the Oceania's
Harrison Carter hoping to add to Bathurst cycling excellent recent record at the Oceania Track Championships..

As you would expect former Bathurst World Track Champion Mark Renshaw is an Oceania Track Champion in 2001 when he defeated Ash Hutchinson and Olympic Track Champion Ryan Bayley in the Elite Mens Scratch Race.

In fact the 2001 Championships was a great one for the Bathurst Club as Toireasa Ryan (Gallagher) was on the podium in the Elite Womens Points Race behind World Champ Kate Bates & New Zealands Annalissa Farrell while Youth Olympics champion Meg Windsor was unlucky finishing in the top 6 in three separate events but missing the podium.

After winning the U19s Oceania Points Race Championship on the track in NZ in 2005 Dean Windsor would later focus more on the Road Oceania Championships like others in the Bathurst club but he was unlucky 4th in the Elite men’s Oceania Point Race Championship on the Track in New Zealand.

Certainly Harry has confirmed his place in the record books as one of Bathurst's best Trackies - Fingers crossed for Harry in NZ.
