Hi Everyone,


CONGRATULATIONS to Laura and Andy on the birth of HANNAH - another new member to the bike club.

Don't forget the social ride this weekend - have a look at the web site for details.

Dirt Crits Race 06/02/12
First week back for the kids at Dirt Crit. There was a big turnout with lots of excitement and the holiday spirit still in the air (along with the dust!). Great ride by all and well done to Bella MacMunn in taking first place!

Adults race was a graded scratch of the short loop course:
D grade winner (3 laps) - Kerryn MacNamara 21:13 and hot on her tail was Tina McDonnell 21:14. Great effort by Flynn Bowker (21:37) in 3rd place.

C and B grade were combined this week (6 laps) - winning spot went to Rob Greenway 32:08, 2nd was Paul MacNamara 32:22 and Jason Parker (32:31) in 3rd place.

There was some stiff competition in A grade (7 laps) with riders leaving the crowd in a cloud of dust each lap. Mitch Greenway took 1st place convincingly with 31:28, 2nd was Chad 32:41 and 3rd place went to Foley Lachal 33:26.

Well done and thanks to everyone for another great Monday night at Dirt Crits. We hope to see even more people next week - come on down for a ride and a chat - the perfect way to start the week!

Shannon and Mitch on Duty for next week 13 Feb - look out A Grade!! Graded scratch race with the course TBC.

That's all for this week.
