Calga TT Sunday 4 March

Calga TT Sunday 4 March

Chris Mercurio at the start

A sea of Waratah colours were spotted at Calga on Sunday. This ATTA report, courtesy Brad Craft, pretty much summed up the day “After an extended holiday break due to Traffic Control formalities with NSW police our year started with 68 time triallists. A few late scratchings saw the numbers a little less than usual.
The weather was a fine 25deg with some of the late starters copping a bit of a headwind on the return leg.”

Only Ian Thomas braved the long course (43.2km) with a 30.4kmh average for 1:25:22

Best of the Waratahs in the short course (25km) was the ever-improving Michael (Miguel) Troup with 38:07, closely followed by track star Paul McKay with 38:25 (and first on standard time). The also-rans were your correspondent with 38:45, Chris Mercurio 40:35 and Felix Tucci with 47:22. A great turnout and solid efforts by all riders.

The next Calga TT is on Sunday the 8th April. Hope to see as many Waratahs as possible out there. Competition for the Nowra Teams is hotting up!

Try the Track at Dunc Gray – 7 Feb 9.30 am

Have you ever considered tackling a velodrome? Intrigued by the idea of riding around a 42 degree banked tracked? Do you want to improve your sprint or perfect that smooth cadence?

The 2018 Waratah Masters Club Track Championship will be held on 10th March at Dunc Gray Velodrome in Bankstown.

We would like more club members to participate and in order to encourage those of you who might be interested but have not yet experienced the exhilaration of a velodrome we have organised two “Try the Track” days at Dunc Gray. The first was on 4th January at 2pm and was well attended as can be seen from this happy and slightly exhausted post ride bunch: http://www.waratahmasters.com.au/2018/01/try-the-track/

The next session will be on 7th February at 9:30am.

More details at http://www.nsw.cycling.org.au/Track/Try-The-Track

These sessions are usually limited to a small group and we would like to know numbers for the next session by Monday 5th February in order to organise correctly sized bikes so if you’re keen please contact Stephen Joyce stephen.george.joyce@gmail.com or Terry Freshwater freshwatert@ymail.com.

In order to encourage participation, the club will pay $50 per rider towards the cost of bike hire, coaching and track hire.

Why not give it a go, you may love it!

Vale Barry Robins 1934 – 2018

With great sadness we report the passing on Wednesday of Waratah member Barry Robins after a long battle with illness and most recently a series of strokes.

Up until a few months ago Barry was racing in F grade and, as always, putting in 110%; that was the only way Barry knew how to ride. Following a long and prominent cycling career at the St George Club, Barry was instrumental in continuing the long tradition of Veteran’s racing at Homebush Bay. He played a key role in the formation of the Waratah club and even proposed the name Waratah which was readily adopted.  Barry competed in A grade well into his sixties which gives you some idea of the quality of his bike riding. In addition to his riding prowess Barry put a lot back into the sport and, for many years, organised the famous 100 lapper at the Hurstville track on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s as well as officiating at many events including the early Waratah races at Homebush Bay.

Our sympathy goes to all of Barry’s family at such a sad time. His spirit will live on at the Waratah Club which he loved so much.

Barry’s funeral will be held in the North Chapel of Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Camden Valley Way, Leppington, on Thursday 25th January at 2.pm
