Entries for this race are closing on Sunday.

It's a great race, doesn't take long to get there. There's one hill to take note of, and the roads can be a bit dead, but apart from that, nothing to be concerned with.

Cheap road race as you don't need to pay for a weekend away

Well at least your were at mudgee! My training has been hopeless in the last two months.

I've been in contact with Eugene Shilter who has also entered. We'll probably catch the train and ride to the start of the race for a warm up.

Good to hear Eugene is racing. I've been meaning to get in contact with him, but i have a habit of forgetting to actually do it.

I'm out : (

I spoke to Eugene. He didn't sound pleased about being bumped into Div 2 since its his first race in a few years. I think he won or placed high in this race several years ago, so he may have reputation in the eyes of the handicappers.

Have a fantastic race everyone.

Eugene hasn't been on the club handicaps that have been sent in recently, so i'm pretty sure they've gone on his previous performances. We should be able to fix this up for his next race.

i'm also out and am gutted (my favourite race in the year). Spent the night waiting at the local medical centre resulting in having a soft tissue infection :!:

On a positive note, i will get to spend the time stripping down a couple of bikes in preparation for the new road racer for next season!

Rumour has it that Mr Wallman scored himself a 2nd place finish, narrowly missing the victory.

Awesome result Wallman, I would have liked to see the photo finish and the one with you flapping inappropriately. Well done.

Are you looking at this one Tim?



I was a bit over-excited, in my defense the photographer obviously thought I'd won, the race caller thought I'd won, and the actual winner was on the opposite side of the road which made it hard for me to tell. If they hadn't had the photo finish I might have bluffed my way onto the top step!

Great photo too!

Jeez, i recognise the winner. I was warming up with him at Wagga before the crit (he was warming up for 3 grades after me!!!) and had a long chat with him. I should have kept some of the tips to myself. He's also one of Mike's offsiders (a spin instructor @fitnessfirst)

To anyone who has not done the Kurrajong I can highly recommend it.
and on that subject why is the Dinnerville so highly supported by the club and this one hardly gets a mention ? Both are great races and both fairly close to home. See all there next year.

P.S.
Well done again Matt.

It is a nice course!
I had a good race despite cramping with 3k to go, l was 4th wheel :-) I had reduced power, the pace was picking up and l couldn't jump on :-( I finished solo behind the lead bunch. I worked on positioning myself to stay in the front half of the bunch on the 2nd lap, except for the hill where l was at the back :-( l had to work damn hard, too hard??, to move up and was in the 2nd bunch at the top. Soon after we merged with the lead bunch and then other riders joined. We then had a large-ish bunch for a sprint finish.
