Tour de Dirt
Monday’s Dirt Crits saw stage 1 and 2 of the Tour de Dirt.
Stage 1 was the Hillclimb; entrants were handicapped by completing a different number of smaller laps, then finishing off with a climb up to the ‘top’ of Riflebutts Reserve.
Dan Purcell was first to the top, closely followed by Tom Macmunn and Kian Lerch-Mackinnon.
Stage 2 was a downhill from the finish of the hill climb to the main finish area.
After handicaps based on previous results, James Griffin took the win; Dan Friday and Dave Moore tied for 2nd.
With one stage to go this coming Monday, Tom Macmunn leads the general classification ahead of Dan Friday and Damian Grundy.
Here are the detailed results.
Road Racing update
Thursday night’s Team Time Trial had to be cancelled due to an administrative issue between VicRoads in Benalla, Victoria Police Event Planning Unit in Melbourne and the MMBCC road race sub-committee chair regarding Public Liability insurance.
The result was proof that the Event Planning Unit and the MMBCC vice-president can’t read! It’s now been resolved and the permit for our final race on Thursday 14 December will be issued early next week.
Our final race will be a handicap at Jamieson (with a late start, 6pm rego for a 6.30 start) with presentation and dinner afterwards at The Wrong Side Brewery (the old Jamieson Brewery). The Wrong Side will be awarding a t-shirt and 6-pack to the winner and rumour has it the road race sub-committee has asked for a little more prize money than usual.
To decide on your prize, check out The Wrong Side.
