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!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org or Terry Freshwater email@example.com.
In order to encourage participation, the club will pay $50 per rider towards the cost of bike hire, coaching and track hire.
