Recent Racing, NCT, ACT Champs and CCC Champs

Over the past few months the team has had a busy racing schedule with the National Capital Tour, the ACT Championships (Road and TT) and the CCC Road Championships all within the space of a month or so.

The team went into the National Capital Tour with a good team looking for any opportunities they could make use of. After solid rides in the Prolouge the team faced a series of setbacks in stage one with three riders withdrawing from the race for various reasons. This left two riders remaining for the final stages but both Matt R and Jeremy R were both willing to give it a good shake. Both riders raced very strongly keeping pace with the front group for the majority of the toughest third stage. Ultimately Matt finished in 24th place overall and 15th in the final criterium. Considering the quality of the field this was a great effort.

Following on from the NCT, were the ACT Championships. In the Elite road race Jeremy R took out the overall honors supported by a strong team including including Jeremy G, Stephen I, and Nick S who finished in 4th, 5th and 6th respectively. In the masters racing Stephen B also collected the gold in the Masters 4 event. The following day in the time trial both Jeremy R and Stephen B when on to do the double also collecting the Elite TT and Masters 4 TT titles.

Yesterday was the Canberra Cycling Club road race championships. With a solid field in attendance Stephen B rode a smart race to collect the Bronze medal in the A grade road race. (won by International level Mountain bike racer Andy Blair).

Some great results over the past weeks and a good signal to some of the form that is building as we draw closer to the Tour of Bright at the beginning of December. The summer Criterium series also commences this Wednesday evening with Tiffen Cycling fielding two strong teams it should be a fantastic summer of racing we look forward to seeing you out there.
