Just a reminder that the Southern Hemisphere Cup is on at Eastern Creek Raceway (SMSP) this Sunday 7 October. Racing starts at 7.00 am and registration opens at 5.45 am.
Late entries will be accepted on the day, so if you missed the cut off you can still race.
We had planned to run two female grades, however due to the very low number of female on-line entries we feel it’s fairer to grade all females in with divisions 1 – 5 and have prizes for the first female in each grade. It’s unfortunate but we’ll try to get higher numbers next time.
Significant cash prizes totalling over $5,000 will be available across all divisions together with prizes for prime winners and the first females. In addition all riders will go in the draw to win a set of bike roof racks compliments of TheRoofRack Store.
Hope you can join us for this major event.

In addition to the cash prizes all riders will participate in a raffle to win a set of bike roof racks, compliments of the RoofRackStore.
Entry costs $35 and needs to be made via Cycling NSW event entry.
Entries close Wednesday 26 September, so don’t delay in placing your entry for this major race.
Hope you can join us.
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.
