This is the latest news from James’ wife Monica. Great news! James has improved considerably. He is quite lucid, very chatty and in relatively good humour and would like to go home. Still no visitors until he’s moved to a ward which could be quite soon.

Latest News from the Waratah Masters CC
Join us to celebrate 40 years of a great little bike shop. Big prizes on offer over all grades.
Racing today at Heffron has been cancelled due to the forecast rain and gale force winds.
The Club held it’s Time Trial Championship on Sunday at Calga and it turned out to be a cracking day. Some excellent times were recorded in perfect conditions.
Out of 70 riders completing the 24 km course Waratahs took out the top 3 places on a time adjusted basis – what a great result! Well done Denis, Chris and Peter. In addition 8 Waratahs achieved a personal best time.
On an age adjusted basis the Club’s 2018 TT Champion is Denis Fahey, followed by Chris Fowler and Peter Jones.
A special mention goes to our oldest competitor Max Beardwood. Unfortunately the organisers don’t have an age adjusted time for an M11 rider, such is his rarity!
Thanks to all riders who came along and participated in this event.
The Club‘s Time Trial Championship for 2018 will be held this Sunday, 6 May, at Calga. The format will be the same as previous years. This is an aged based competition over a 25 km out and back route and it’s run for us by ATTA. Registration commences at 7 am when you will need to identify yourself as a Waratah, show your licence and give your MMAS / WMAS category. You will then be given a start time, with riders starting at 1 minute intervals commencing at 8 am running through until about 10 am. Waratahs will be mixed in with riders from other clubs also completing the TT course on the day.
Entry is FREE (usually $25) for all Waratah members. Medals will be awarded for the top 3 male Waratah riders in each age group. For female Waratahs there will be medals for the top 3 riders over and under 45. The overall Club Champion will be based on an age adjusted time.
To get to Calga from the west, proceed along the M1 (F3), towards Newcastle, taking the Peats Ridge / Calga turn off. The starting area is approx 1 km from the turnoff on the RHS of the road.
The TT is known as the ‘race of truth’, so even if you’re not a regular TT rider why not come along and test your legs against the clock in the company of your club mates. It’s something very different to criteriums and you may even surprise yourself. The event will be held in all weather conditions.
