Sunday Wrap

6 Sep

What a huge day for so many riders, hitting the tracks at Samford. The races have been run and won, with Michael Illing taking home the Elite Men’s title. There were a heap of other winners too, so head to our Results page and check out the full lists.

Visible Focus have sent through a link to their photos. Go and check them out here.

If you or someone else you know was out taking photos, send us a link and we will keep this post updated with them.


Day 1 Wrap

5 Sep

CX racing today and oh it was fun. Such a great track with some technical obstacles, close racing and spectators all round the course. Ride of the day goes to the guy who raced B Grade then backed up and held his ground in the A Grade field. Dan Radford took the honours, completing 14 laps in 45:50.

We hope to make Samford a regular stop for the CX crew and we have quite a few spots to use within the Baden Powell Park.

Rego for tomorrow kicks off at 6:30, with first race at 8:00am. If you haven’t pre registered, we will have entry forms in the morning and rego closes 1 hour before your race start for day entries, 30 minutes for pre-rego’d riders.

Jungle Bean and DRCC will be out in the morning to keep you fuelled up for the day’s festivities!

See you all in the morning!
