This Saturday afternoon we will be meeting at the Mountain Bike Carpark on Taylor Pass Road at 1pm for a 1.30pm start. The open grade will compete in a 38km handicap event covering 3 laps of the out and return course. The rolling course will see the handicap groups try to stay intact to keep away from the strong scratch group. With Craig Harper away, fastest time honours will be closely fought out between Gerard van Antwerpen, Sean O’Neill, Jeremy McKenzie and Nick Batt. There will also be shorter 13km and 26km race options. The races will be a good warm up to the Winter Season which starts next week (weekly events July through to October).
