Latest News from the Waratah Masters CC
The Club’s Road Championships were held at Lansdowne on Sunday 16 September. Some 75 Waratahs raced across 11 grades, including three members over 80 competing in the M11’s. The weather was beautiful as was Dave’s coffee which he so generously provided free of charge.
Racing was fast and furious in most grades with a mixture of breakaways and bunch sprints hitting the line to take out the honors. Congratulations to all place getters and to all members who came out to compete in this enjoyable day. As usual all medals will be awarded at our annual dinner in December.
Race results are as follows:

Due to late notification that the full Dragway won’t be available the venue has now changed to Lansdowne.
The Clubs Road Race Championships will be held this Sunday, 16 September, at Lansdowne. This is a day for Waratah Club members only.
Each Men’s Masters Category, 1 to 11, will have its own race. Some categories may be combined if numbers warrant.
As our Women’s membership is low, it’s proposed to have two races, an under and an over 45 years race. If agreed by participants, the Women’s group may be allowed to ride within an appropriate Men’s category. Medals will be awarded to all winners and place getters and presented at the Club’s annual dinner in December.
Entry is free and start times are: 7.45 am for MMAS 1 to 5 and WMAS under 45; 9.00 am for MMAS 6 to 11 and WMAS over 45.
All Waratahs are encouraged to participate in this enjoyable Club event. Even if you don’t manage to pick up a medal it’s one of the few opportunities we all have to meet and mix with our fellow Club members. It’s requested that Club jerseys be worn by all riders.
Hope you can join us for this enjoyable Club event.
Congratulations to Waratah Maria Nash who won silver finishing second in her age group in the ‘2018 Gran Fondo World Championships’ held in Varese, Italy, last weekend. This event saw the cream of international cycling compete in a race over a tough 103 k course. All riders had to qualify for entry in one of several UCI qualifying events. What’s even more remarkable is that Maria only recently started competitive racing, having her first road race earlier this year. It took none other than the world renowned Frenchwoman Jeannie Longo to beat Maria across the line. Where’s she been hiding all these years?
Well done Maria, we look forward to welcoming you home and trying to stay with you up Akuna Bay.

Just for a change, on Sunday 5 August we will be hosting an aged based event at Lansdowne. Riders will race in their M/W age category. Categories 1 – 5 start at 7.45 am and categories 6 – 11 start at 9.00 am.
As in the past, all females will have the choice of racing in an age group up to two levels above where they belong (bad luck boys). This is purely at the discretion of the rider.
This is a chance to test yourself against riders of your own age for a change, so hope you can make it.
