It was a great day at Mirimbah last weekend and again thanks to Tina for organsing it. Well done to David Bock taking out the Mountain/Dirt trophy again.
Apologies also for not getting the road cup sorted. The storm on the last Thursday threw a few spanners in the works and I was hoping that we could somehow reschedule the race to have a fitting end to a well contested season however our obligations to race regulations means that the results to date will stand.
Well done to Bruce Halket who too has had a consistent season and just edged out Darren who has raced well and persistently. No surprises that Mitch took out third - he's doing very well with his career and David Jagger's fourth reflects his improvement over the season. Will Mac did well to place fifth in both the road and mountain series. Well done too to Christine and Julie for regularly keeping the blokes in line - both of you have raced very well.

A few acknowledgements: Thanks to John Lithgow and the crit crew and all the volunteers for putting on the criterium/road race. It's a lot of work but is our primary income generator ( to the tune of about $5000.00) and I think is a good thing for our club to be part of as it's now one of the top events in the state series. Thanks to our volunteers over the season-it wouldn't work without all of you. Well done to Dave and Tom for keeping the Dirt Crits happening - again a lot of work. Thanks to our sponsors: The Delatite Hotel, The Alpine Butchery, All Terrain Cycles, The Scody High Country Cycle Challenge/ tour de flavour, The Deck, The Mansfield Community Bank, Stewart's Bus Lines, Bakker Plumbing and the Friday Foundation. We do get real benefit from these sponsors. Thanks to the exec who do a lot of work behind the scenes. We meet most months so if you want to provide feedback please shoot me an email. Our AGM will come up quickly so please have a think about how you feel about the club, what we can be doing and if you want a role in that.
The autumn series of events will be out soon so keep an eye on the site.
Cheers , John.
