The Bathurst cycling club held its Club Race on the Historic Vale Circuit on the weekend. A small field contested A Grade with Will Hodges (Oliver’s Racing) taking a narrow win over Brad Rayner with last start winner David Nicholas third and Dan Googe 4th.

Glen Partridge seems to be recovering from his hip injury, recording his second win in a row in C Grade defeating the very consistent Rod Esdaile and new comer Braedon Smith who is showing a bit of talent since taking up the sport.

Club legends Marian Renshaw and Rosemary Hastings raced D Grade with Marian taking victory in the final sprint.

How it Happened

Womens Short Course “Line Honours”
After a good swim it was Amanda Robinson that led the Women’s Short Course Event, with Jo Foster, Belinda Cooper and Melinda Short chasing hard and eating into Amanda’s lead on the bike leg.
Foster taking the lead in the run an looking the winner until Tania Pringle finished very fast to take the handicap win in the final few meters of the race. The unlucky Jo Foster was second only a few seconds from the win. After leading for much of the event Amanda Robinson was a deserving third with Andrea Meale running an excellent final leg to push Belinda Cooper back to 5th.
Jessica Brennan was an impressive 6th but had to contend with a very determined Bonny Keevers, who after being caught by Brennan fought back in the run to sprint it out for sixth place. Melissa Rajkovic was strong in all 3 legs finishing 8th infront of talented triathlete Morgan Watts who not only finish 9th on Handicap but recorded the fastest female time in the short course event infront of Female Backmarker Kerstin Howard who actually borrowed Donna Scott bike to finish the bike leg after puncturing early in the ride. 

Mens Short Course “Line Honours”
It was actually the Teams that took the line honours in the Short Course event, popular club members Peter Bennett and Mark Burns combining to win the day.
Peter Bennett famous for his “Have a Go Attitude” is living proof that you don’t have to be able to run to be a triathlete with some serious knee issues restricting him to a walk. However with a chance of line honours in the handicap format, Peter tagged long time committee member Mark Burns for the run and the popular duo smashed it, taking line honours overall and defeating Team Defibs and Scrambled Legs in the Teams Race.
In the race for the individual Male Handicap Classification, Darren Powyer held the lead till well into the final run led when Paul McAlpine surged past to take the win. The luckless Powyer look set for second place till both Nicholas Gailer and Alex Weal caught and past him just before the finish line to push him off the podium. Ironman James Kelly had a great battle with Aaron Burgess for 5th place, Kelly using all his experience to take the final place in the top 5 by a couple of seconds.
Event Backmarker Mark Windsor looked to have a tough task with a 41minute Handicap and only finished 14th on Handicap, however he recorded the fastest time with 38:56, second fastest was Christopher Howarth (with 47:27) just infront of Aaron Burgess win 47min 40sec.

Mens Long Course “Line Honours"
Michael Stapley and Paul van Klooster were the early leaders in the Mens Long Course Handicap race with Van Klooster and Hayden Cupitt then coming together to battle it out for Line Honours. Cupitt out running Van Klooster in the final leg to take the win. Darren Fenton, Damon Cupitt and Geoff Short had a great battle for third, Shorty put in a great bike ride to lead the trio into the run leg where Darren Fenton made his move to take third infront of Damon Cupitt and Geoff Short. Jack Reen powered through the run leg to climb to 6th across the line, his time of 55:08 third fastest in the long course race behind Nick North (0:50:22) who was 10th across the finish line and Thomas Hanrahan who recorded 53:21 (9th)

Women Long Course “Line Honours"
After a good Swim and Ride Donna Scott had jointed Michelle Patton in the lead of the Womens Long Couse Event, however Patton paced herself perfertly on the run to record a clear win from Scott with Katie Prior just lasting to defeat the very fast finishing Kristy Powyer for third on Handicap. Anna Blackie started the run in 3rd place but hung-on well to make the top 5 ahead of fast finisherd Renee Covington Jennifer Arnold and Hollee Simons who recorded 2nd fastest time in the event behind Emily Watts whose 57min 17sec is believed to be the second fast time set on the long course.
