XC Rd 8 Short track race report & results


Rain kept a lot of riders away yesterday but those who did come kept the heat on for all 3 races of the short track format. The longest lap was around 3.4Km keeping each of the 3 races short and sweet.

In A-Grade Justin Millington relied heavily on his road racing tactics by sitting on Liam Flanagan’s wheel for all but the last half a kilometre. Not to be out-foxed, Liam got the better of Justin in race 3 for a well deserved win.

The B-Grade field did well to minimise the gap to first but Shane Gillett continues to be unstoppable especially over the shorter distances. The punters also welcomed 2 new faces of Andrew Stockwell and Matt Christie, well done and hope to see you again soon lads.

C and D Grades were combined so everyone could keep one another company and it also proved for some close racing. Commiserations to Peter Cullen with a broken rear derailleur denying him a clean sweep and congratulations to Paris Millington for taking advantage of the opening and beating Cameron Gilchrist home on Race 3.

Next Race is GE Rd 6 11 October. Hope to see you there.
