Elleker Kermesse Results

The sunshine was welcomed, while the crosswind was not so popular at the Elleker Graded Kermesse on Saturday․ It was fantastic to have such a large A-Grade field starting, although it was gradually whittled away by injury, illness, flat tyre and tired legs․ Congratulations to visiting rider Luke Ellis, David Beckwith and new-to-racing Richard McKenney who took out their respective grades․ Well done also to Tammy Stone and Raylene Sobik who were the first placed women and U15 junior Jessica Waldron whose pace never faltered during the C-Grade race․ We wish Tom Quartermaine the very best as he finishes his year of medical studies and placement in Albany and returns to Perth․ Full results here

Team TT & Tour of Margaret River Results

Apologies for the delay in posting the results from the Team Time Trial on the 5th November․ As always there was a great feel to this event, with good natured rivalry and lots of encouragement within the teams․ Fantastic to have a few visitors and to welcome some new local racers․

Conditions were good and four teams went under the magic 30 minute mark, including Andy Bell and Mark Sobik who found themselves unexpectedly riding as a duo, and Carl Beck, Riley Heslop and Daniel Lee who worked well together to post an impressive time of 26:33.0․

The combined power of Luke Ellis, Stuart Passmore and Craig Wiggins blitzed the field with fastest time of the day and a new course record of 24:14.8․ First of the all-women teams were Kea Mumford, Suzanne Peacock and Tammy Stone – with Kea setting the pace to bring the ladies home in a speedy time of 31:18.0․ Full results here.

Over at the Tour of Margaret River on the weekend a bunch from Albany & Denmark joined more than 600 other riders for the team-based event․ Craig Wiggins was 3rd in Division 1 in Stage 3 and his OTOC Vault team finished second overall after the three stages.

The Denmark Geezers – Kea Mumford, Mark Adams, Andrew LeFort, Greg Newton, Colin Ashton-Graham and Nathan Brown – were third overall in Division 6, with Mumford finishing first female in Stage 3.

Lee Haselgrove’s Arimia Andiamo team finished 4th in Division 3, while Ben Castlehow, riding with Team Manjimup, was King of the Mountain in Division 8 on Stage 2.

By all accounts the Tour was an excellent event, wrapping up a week-long cycling bonanza which started the previous Sunday with The Amazing Albany Bike Ride and Breakaway WA. Full results for TOMR are here.

20km Time Trial Results (8th & 29th Oct)

The forecast for wild weather kept some away from this morning’s 20km Individual Time Trial, but the worst held off and riders faced only light rain and just a bit more wind than usual․ There were mixed fortunes, with some posting fast times while others found it a slog․ Andy Bell tackled the course a little differently than usual, riding his fixie to finish in a solid 32:39․7!

Full results for today and the mixed Individual & Team Time Trial on Saturday 8th October are here․

Next Saturday 5th October is a 20km Team Time Trial, when we’ll be joined by some visitors here for The Amazing Albany Bike Ride (Sunday 6th) and the Denmark Discovery Ride (Monday 7th)․

We have noticed that the batteries on some older transponders have started running out․ If this is the case for you replacements will need to be purchased ($125 – with 5 year subscription) or you can hire them for $10 per event․ If you’re unsure your transponder if working properly, please get in touch with the club before Saturday if you’re intending to ride․

Elleker 3 Hour Participation Challenge – Results

The inaugural Elleker 3 Hour Participation Challenge was a lot of fun and we welcomed several new faces in the field. The event had a great vibe, with some riders sticking together as a pack, others taking it at their own pace, and some riding as a relay. Well done to everyone who joined in and thank you to the event marshals and helpers. Lap times for those who had transponders on are available here.

Check out some event photos taken by Lachlan Waldron here.
