About eighty members, family and friends of the Mansfield Mt Buller Cycling Club attended the end of summer season picnic and presentations at Mirimbah Park on Sunday.
In beautiful autumn conditions some of the roadies rode from Mansfield with five really earning their lunch by going up and down Buller on the way. A mass of the mountain bike crew headed up Buller for a variety of rides before descending River Spur to meet for lunch.
In the road season results, Tony Williams edged into the top ten on 54 points with Steve Plummer 9th on 59 points. Both were pleased to end the season with a top ten finish. Ahead on countback, Rob Greenway had a steady season on 59 and last years' winner, Craig Wilson was 7th. Craig rode well towards the end of the season rising to the "block after block" group. Jock Brega (66), Will MacDonald (68) and Andrew Gerrans(79) were all quiet achievers to fill the next placings. At the very pointy end Stefan Vaivars, Bruce Halket and Josh Hopwood had all been training consistently with a focus on the season premiership. With a tactical sprinting edge, Josh (108 points), was able to hold off Bruce(101) and Stefan(92) to take out the perpetual trophy for 2011/2012.
