Peel Junior Tour Results

The girls had a ball at the Peel Junior Tour today, gaining some great experience as well as more treasures for the trophy cabinet․ Emily Wiggins took the clean sweep in the U13 girls with 1st place in the Prologue, TT and Road Race. Danica Wiggins was 2nd overall in the U15 girls with 2nd in the Prologue & TT and 3rd in the Road Race. In her first year in the U15 category, Jess Waldron also had a great day finishing 3rd overall in the U15 girls after placing 5th in the Prologue, 3rd in the TT and 2nd in the Road Race. Well done girls! Unfortunately Lachlan Waldron was a non-starter after coming down with a cold. Get well soon Lachy.

Long Course Champs – Results

Another chilly but fine morning out at Spencer Rd, Narrikup, for the Long Course Championship event today․ Thanks Kathleen, Martin, John, Raylene & Mark for helping with marshalling, timing, signs and the trailers․ Well done to everyone who took part on this tough course․

Great to see Team Denmark’s David Beckwith and Kea Mumford taking the first two places in B Grade, closely followed by new member George Law, and five ladies taking part in C Grade․ Excellent efforts from U15 Riley Heslop who rode his one lap with B Grade with a solo breakaway for the second half of the lap and from Craig Wiggins who quietly left Mark Sobik and Stuart Passmore in his wake on the way to winning A Grade․ No local racing next weekend, so check out the social rides on Saturday and Sunday mornings․ All the best to those racing the Kalgoorlie-Menzies as well as the Karri Cup MTB event․

Pickering Brook Results & Peel Junior Tour 28/29 May

The Wiggins family was out in force at Pickering Brook on Sunday․ Craig was 2nd in the A Grade Men’s road race – after riding much of the race in a breakaway that was caught close to the finish, Craig did very well to regather and sprint to 2nd place․

Emily was 3rd in the F Grade Time Trial and 5th in the road race (as well as first girl in both of these)․ Great to see Allison and Danica having a go in C and D grades too․ Well done to you all․ Full results available here

Good luck to Emily & Danica and Jessica & Lachlan Waldron who are competing at the Peel Junior Tour this weekend․

Thank you Heslop Family & Beaurepaires Albany

The committee would like to thank Tony, Hayley & Riley Heslop and their business Beaurepaires Albany for their assistance following a flat tyre on the club trailer during the Mt Barker to Albany. After a phone call from Riley, Tony travelled out to the trailer on the side of the road to fit a replacement wheel. Tony and Hayley have also organised a spare wheel for us free of charge which is greatly appreciated. Thanks also to Michael Cameron who helped out by taking the flat off the trailer before Tony arrived.

Syd Harper Cup – Results

The weekend’s stormy weather had passed over by Sunday morning and more than twenty riders turned out in chilly but reasonable conditions․ Five U15s joined in with the senior riders, including Jeremy Staude who put in a great effort in his first full length handicap event․ Thank you George, Martin, Michael, Stuart & John for help with marshalling, trailers and signs․

U15 Lachlan Waldron made a gutsy break from his 8-minute group on the way back from Frenchman Bay and remained out there for most of the day until his hard working group members Jim Lie and Paul Terry finally reeled him in near the Windfarm turnoff․ In a well-deserved win, Jim narrowly outsprinted Paul with Lachy rounding out the podium․ Off three minutes, Lucy Wellstead had another good ride to be first lady home ahead of strong U15 Jess Waldron․ Off scratch, Nav Coole chased hard – mostly solo on the way back – to come in less than a minute after the winners and post the fastest time․ Full results here․

Next Sunday at 8am is the Long Course Championships on the Spencer Road course in Narrikup․ Please let us know if you can help out․
