Calga TT Sun 6 Aug

Calga TT Sun 6 Aug

The race of truth continues … 3 Waratahs fronted on a windy day at Calga. Jeremy Lowes had a personal best (40:12) but still chasing a sub-40 min time for the short course. Better luck next time!

Geraldine Blomfield-Brown posted another brisk time of 40:55. Obviously getting online coaching from partner Chris, who is currently riding up every mountain in Switzerland.

And Chris Fowler proved that time-trialing is 25% physical and 75% mental. Just couldn’t get his head in the game and slumped to 39:17.

And, just for interest, in the UK in June this year, Paralympic gold medallist and multiple national record holder Adam Duggleby added the 100-mile (160km) national competition record to his list when he powered to victory in the Eastern Counties CA time trial in Cambridgeshire. Duggleby, 32 from Leeds, covered the distance in 3hrs 16min 51sec, slicing 4:40 from the two-year-old mark and taking victory on the day by more than two minutes from his nearest rival. That’s 4 consecutive Calga long course TTs – each one well under the hour!

Waratah’s support ‘Below the Belt’ Pedathlon

We need a few more charity minded Waratah’s to make up a 6 man team for this fund raising event at SMSP on Tuesday September 19 from 9am. The Club will be making a significant donation in support of the team and of course each team member is expected to raise some funds to support ANZUP and their invaluable research effort into prostate, testicular, kidney and other “below the belt” cancers. Over 300 riders are expected at this 3 hour race challenge with plenty of prizes and entertainment. For more details contact Graham Jones at grahamjones@live.com or on 0412 949885.

These kinds of cancers have affected many of us in some way or another so how about doing what you love to do and help the research effort.

Disc Brakes Allowed in Races

A recent ruling by Cycling Australia means that you can now ride a disc brake equipped bike in club races. An announcement on the CA website states:

Cycling Australia is pleased to announce that riders will be able to use bikes with disc brakes at club, state and non-UCI national championship level road races across Australia, effective immediately.

Cycling Australia CEO Nick Green OAM said that the new stance on disc brakes will encourage and allow more people to get involved in racing, particularly at the local club level.

“Cycling Australia is taking a leadership role in the global discussion around disc brakes and look forward to seeing a positive effect on the Australian cycling landscape with this announcement,” said Green.

Cycling Australia actively works at all levels to remove barriers for people getting into cycling, and we believe this is another valuable step towards getting more people to give racing a go.” he added.

Clearly this means that Waratah members now have a new excuse for a new bike 🙂
