NEW EVENT -- 4th September 2021
Another Lockdown Handicap on Zwift

With the Covid19 Lockdown preventing the Western NSW cycling Championships this weekend in Bathurst, plus the forecast of rain, we are we are proposing another Zwift Lockdown Handicap to get everyone moving.

A couple of weeks ago (21st Aug 2021) when the Lockdown was sprung on as, Renshaw’s Pedal Project came to the rescue for any local cyclists with access to the Zwift App for a bit of social competition. I am sure a number of you read the report in the press, the results and race report can be found here --
So with the 10 day lockdown now growing, plus a wet weekend forecast, we are proposing another event this weekend (4th Sept 2021).. Same format!!
It is Important If you would like to participate in the event that you follow the Renshaw’s Pedal Project Zwift Account as soon as possible. You need to follow this account before the invitations go out.

To Enter
Simply open the Zwift Companion App and go to Find Zwifters and type in Renshaw’s Pedal Project – note the apostrophe.
This should give you an invitation to the event, which you accept to be entered in the RPP Lockdown Special.
Before the event will need to get zwift up and going and JOIN EVENT before the start time as there will be no Late Starts.

Strangely the last event it somehow developed into an unofficial Bathurst Vs Dubbo Challenge; of course that wasn’t the intension, as it really is just some social competition, especially using the Meetup format where a few strange things can happen. However it made for some good racing and of course we are keen to have the regions cyclist involved again.
So a special invitation to all the DCC esports team as well as any other regional cyclist with a Zwift account.
A number of the Dubbo riders will be glad to know that the Handicaps have been adjusted after the event on the 21st Aug 2021. You can see the new handicaps on the Grade Site – see the link below
Now everyone is throw in together, sorry, and the idea is that you check your grade before the event to know who you are racing against.
It is important to note that the course remains the same so your first priority is to have a crack at a new PB on the course.

See Attached Link -- Will be adding riders to the Handicap list up to 10am Saturday 04/09/21 - otherwise you will just be in A Grade by default

SO having trouble getting invites to everyone.. As RPP can only send out 100 invites and we have almost 150 followers
Will trying to get more invites out - But can people not riding who have an invite decline so we can move that invite to some of the riders who have missed out.

Mudgee rider Jeff Frank certainly got under the handicappers guard in the weekends C Grade Lockdown race, Frank not only winning c Grade but finishing Top 10 overall in a super time of 27m37s, the performance will mean he is likely to go straight to A Grade from C grade.

After winning D Grade at the last the last Lockdown event Mick Robinson (Bathurst) showed he is well up to C Grade finishing 4th infront of Adam Young (AHDR).

The pace was on in A Grade, with the strongest field to ever race one of the Renshaw’s Pedal Project Events. Riders from all 4 major centres in the Western Division (Bathurst Dubbo Orange and Mudgee) racing for overall victory.

In the end it was the current Western NSW Esports champions Luke Tuckwell of Orange (& Bathurst Club) and Kate Spicer of Dubbo that took overall victory in the open men and womens events.

Luke Tuckwell set up his win with an attack in the final 2kms of the event which brought all 4 Dubbo Riders (Kurt & Dylan Eather Simon Heppell and Spicer)to the front of the pack to chase. In an impressive display Tuckwell hung on for victory infront of the fast finishing Nick North who is continuing to improve after recovering from a recent injury. Third was a dead heat between top young cyclist Dylan Eather (Dubbo) and Cadel Lovett (Bathurst) with Race One winner Mark Windsor (Bathurst) and Dubbos Simon Heppell rounding out the top5 overall.

Western Regions top ranked rider on the road at the last two regional Road Championships Kurt Eather (Dubbo) was next to finish. It was an impressive display by Eather who may not have won but put out almost 350watts average for the race, which is very close to the record for an RPP event.

Craig McAlister (Bcc Vic) Cameron Arnold  (BxCC) and Stuart Renshaw (Bathurst) rounded out the top 10 in A Grade, with a special mention to Craig McAlister who has rapidly climbed the ranking from C Grades only a matter of weeks ago to establish himself now in A Grade.

Runner up in the recent Overall Men Western NSW ESports Title Mark Windsor took-out the Green Sprint Jersey in A Grade recording 24.20sec to defeat Dubbo pair Simon Hepple and Kurt Eather.

RESULTS A GRADE - 1Luke Tuckwell (Bcc Orange) 2Nick North(Bath)  3Dylan Eather (Dubbo) & Cadel Lovett (Bath) 5Mark Windsor (Bath) & Simon Heppell (Dubbo) 7Kurt Eather (Dubbo) 8Craig McAlister (Bcc Vic) 9Cameron Arnold  (BxCC) 10Stuart Renshaw (Bathurst)
