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.

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.

Road Race Report / 3 Roads "all-in" Handicap 16th June 2018
« on: June 17, 2018, 05:42:06 AM »
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.

The Dimension Data team consists Bathurst’s Mark Renshaw, Team leader Mark Cavendish, Nickolas Dlamini, Ryan Gibbons, Reinardt Janse Van Rensburg and Jay Robert Thomson. There will be plenty of competition in the Italian event with the Quick-Step Sprint train will be looking to dominate for in form Elia Viviani while Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek – Segafredo), Simone Consonni (UAE-Emirates) and Italy’s Matteo Trentin will ensure the bunch sprints will be hard fought affairs.

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.

Big news for the Aussies and Tim Guys Ljubljana Gusto Xaurum Team was that Ben Hill was part of the breakaway of five riders on Day 1 of the Tour of Slovenia; the others in the break included Nik Cemazar, Jon Bozic, Juraj Bellan & Martin Haring.
Hill had a great day winning sprints and the Hill Climb to take the KOM Jersey and finish 5th in the Points Jersey.

Things where not so good for Bathurst Champ Mark Renshaw, with the sprint team catching the 5 leads all was set for the expected bunch sprint. However things where chaotic at the finish with 2 major crashes taking out all the high profile sprinters including Mark Renshaw who fell heavily.
Others to fall included Caleb Evan (Mitchelton-Scott) 1.5km from the finish while the Rafal Majka fall was closer still to the finish line.
The Stage went to UAE Team Emirates rider Simone Consonni who outsprinted Matteo Pelucchi and Niccolo Bonifazio.
The day even better for Ljubljana Gusto Xaurum with 3 riders in the top 10 in the Young Rider Classification (infact 4 in the top 12) lead by Jon Bozic who rode impressively on Day 1

Would Tim Guy be the only rider to participate in the Bathurst Cycling Classic B2B and the Maraton Franja Ljubljana?

Both events are rounds of the Cycling Age Group World Series and Tim Guy has a wonderful connection with both - having finished on the podium in the Blayney to Bathurst B2B challenge Weekend and now part of the oldest Granfondo on the World Series, the Maraton Franja in Ljubljana, which is his current home away from home in the European Summer.

In 2018, Round 10 of the UCI Gran Fondo World Series was Blayney to Bathurst Cyclo Sportif with Round 15 of the World Series the Maraton Franja at Slovenia's capital city where Tim Guy and his Pro Team - Ljubljana Gusto Xaurum, where part of the big promotion with the event drawing over 7000 riders over the 3 days.

Senior Western Division Road Champs to go ahead this weekend.

If you have been following the Western Division Senior Road Championship updates it will not surprize you that Bathurst has had some trouble while attempting to run the event. However, the Bcc is committed to running the event – so we do have a Senior WD Road Title this Saturday along with the Junior WD Champs at Mt Panorama. But for Safety and to avoid affecting traffic in the area there will be a few race regulations.

Unless significantly upgrading Traffic Control in some locations, (which of course impacts local traffic even further), Bathurst has limited course options for this type of event. In fact the “Cross Road Course” looks the only real option at this point. This means a change in normal championship procedure with all Grades doing the same Course; we had hoped that D Grade might be able to have an easier option (2Roads Quarry Course) but for this to happen the race has to be controlled by senior riders till the Newbridge Neutral Zone, this has been difficult to organise and D Grade (if contested) looks certain to start with the C Grade event.

So the Race details for the Saturday’s Western Division Senior Road Championships are:-
Bathurst – Bathurst Bike Park – Vale Road Bathurst.
Saturday - 30th June 2018, (Reserve date – No Reserve Date Available at this time)
Course – CrossRoad “Caloolah Hill” Course – 50km (plus 4km Neutral)
TIME: 12:00 mid-day registration (closed 12:15pm) for a 12:30pm start (see Note Below)
AGE Divisions: Senior Divisions (U19s, U23s Elite & Masters with U17s & U15s racing on Club Event Approvals
NOTE – Coaches Parents & Guardians are to consider the stress on all U15 U17 riders before entering the events).

EVENTS: Graded Scratch races (4 Grades if possible) - however it is likely there will be 3 separate grades (A, B & C Grades) with D Grade racing with C grade if required. 

ENTRIES – To Consider the Championship’s Handicapping & Planning All Initial Entries should be ONLINE ONLY – See the Attached Link….

So there is only Money Collected on the day before the race – There is a chance you will be able to get in the event on the day (ie Last Minute Rego) if you get there a bit earlier, but it is likely you will be handicapped into a harder grade as a penalty. 

For the latest info on the event, See the Bathurst Club Web Site or their FaceBook Site. Also there will be a summary on the Western NSW Cycling Site (Please Note This is the Page you are reading now)-
or for Race Reports and Results see:-

A B & C Grade (Long Course):
Start Bathurst Bike Park (Neutral to Rail lines at Perthville) then continue straight along the Trunkey/Vale Rd to Georges Plains, where you go over the bridge and turn Right towards Trunkey Creek on the Trunkey/Vale Rd. 
Continue to the turn at the Cross Road Neutral U Turn, (approx. 34km from Bathurst) and then return to the Bike Park Finish.
Note the change to race conditions (RTZ) after Perthville (approx. 3km) which includes no more than 2 abreast to avoid any impact on local traffic.
In simple terms, it is just a 55km (Approx.) out and back course from the Bike Park. 

As per the Bathurst Cycling Club Event Management Plan there are a number of Competition Neutral Zones (CNZ) on these Courses. All Competitors must take the time to understand these CNZs and by signing on you confirm you understand the Competition Rules (especially Neutral U Turn, Neutral Zones, and Respect the Traffic Zones (RTZ) )

Obey all Road Rules – eg - please note there are a number of Rail Crossing anyone illegally passing through a Rail Crossing will be Disqualified.

This is a Test Case for events at the bike park – Due to the expected low number of entries but good cross section of competitors this event has been identified as a trial, and will be the first time a Road Event will finish at the Bathurst Bike Park. This means that competitors are to take extra care and responsibility, eg the corner into the park has a section of dirt, which all competitors must take time to observe before the event. Please Note; that the finish has been moved up the hill in the park to ensure there is no advantage attacking through the corner, as the sprint should not start until well inside the Park Boundary.

Respect the Traffic Zones (RTZ)
This Zones means we cannot impede the local traffic on this section of road. Ride should only ride in a manner acceptable to pasting non-enter traffic. This means -
Only Ride 2 abreast Max
No Riding within 2.5 meters of the centre line or road centre markers – ie use the road edge where available.
No Rolling to the back of the Bunch in the centre of the Road
No Slowing at the front of the bunch or acratic riding causing the Bunch to fan across the road.
