With winter fast approaching and the prospect of near sub zero temperatures in the dip at Lansdowne, we’ve opened the Waratah Club clothing window until Monday 22 May. So now’s your chance to top up on some cold weather gear, or whatever else takes your fancy. After 22 May all orders will be produced and shipped approx. 6 weeks later. To place an order simply go the following site:

You will then be able to choose from a large range of Waratah clothing.

Because of the large range of options available we have a PDF that describes the difference between the apex, performance and tech jersey options: Champion Systems Range Descriptions. These three are also available in ‘club’ or ‘race’ cut. The club cut is the looser fit and the most commonly ordered.

Denis Fahey Wins Double Gold At World Masters Games

Denis Fahey Wins Double Gold at World Masters Games

Over 25,000 people competed in the recent World Masters Games in Auckland NZ. Among them was our own ever green Denis Fahey who entered three events, the road time trial, the road race and the track pursuit. Denis collected gold in the road time trial on a flat fast course, he also collected gold in the track pursuit event and he finished a creditable 8th in the road race on a tough hilly course.

Being back in his native NZ must have inspired him to ride like the wind. Congratulations Denis from all your Waratah mates.

NSW Masters Champs. Orange 22 – 24 April

NSW Masters Champs. Orange 22 – 24 April

Perfect weather greeted 11 Waratahs (Harry ROURKE, Alexander WATT, Philip HARREX, Bob CLARKE, Bob WILLIS, Daniel BERNARD, Chris FOWLER, Brian NIELSEN, Geraldine BLOMFIELD-BROWN, David LEDGER and Chris MERCURIO) competing across 3 events in a range of age groups.

In the premier road race events on a challenging 25km circuit at Molong (30mins drive from Orange) the results were patchy.

Geraldine BLOMFIELD-BROWN once again showed the way with 3rd in her WMAS1-4 division. Gerri was also 8th overall (22 starters). David LEDGER was outsprinted for a podium and finished 6th out of 36 starters in the very competitive MMAS5 division. Chris FOWLER (MMAS7) couldn’t match the 3 man breakaway on the penultimate lap and finished up in 5th place. Brian NIELSEN (MMAS4) had bad luck with a puncture in the neutral zone and Daniel BERNARD (MMMAS1-2) found the pace too hot. Harry ROURKE (MMAS8) finished 9th.

In the criteriums held on the fast flowing industrial estate circuit Harry ROURKE, now nicely warmed up from the road race, showed his speciality with 2nd place in a hotly contested sprint. Alexander WATT (MMAS8) finished 11th. Geraldine BLOMFIELD-BROWN was first WMAS4 for a gold medal and 3rd overall! Others included Bob CLARKE (MMAS9) 6th and Bob WILLIS (MMAS10) 1st. Dave LEDGER held on for a top ten finish, placing 8th.

In the race of truth, Dave LEDGER was the fastest Waratah on the lumpy 20km time trial course with 33:29 and 6th place. Chris FOWLER posted 34:15 missing the podium by 3 seconds! Geraldine BLOMFIELD-BROWN again showed her class with 36:06 and a bronze to go with her gold from the crit. Chris MERCURIO (MMAS3) tried hard for 36:18 and 18th place (Peter Milostic was flying with 29:04)! Harry ROURKE posted 39:49 for 8th, Bob CLARKE 43:13 for 5th and Bob WILLIS again 1st in the MMAS10.

Congratulations to all competitors!
