2018 11 20 Race Results

PMCC John Oxley Motors Criterium season.

Week 6

This week it was Scratch Racing again

Jazz was promoted to D grade and Lachlan to C grade. We welcomed Matt and Alistair to the club and Mark dropped in for some racing a long way from Penrith his home club. Jodie and Joel came back for more racing and Kevin made it as well.

The commissioners had the Juniors bikes rolled out and then there were some helmet checks. Drops was on duty as our first aid officer.

C and D Grades

These riders raced first but the two grades were sent off about 2 minutes apart as there was a big crews on the track .
Oscar, Miren, Jarvis, Alani and Lachlan all got some racing in before heading south with Will to the Illawarra Track Open for some track racing with NCAS on Saturday arvo.     Good luck kids.
Gareth, Michael, Jodie and Todd we’re surrounded by u19-15 riders in C grade.
Alistair, Richard and Matt raced the kids in D grade giving Nick Campbell and Jazz a run for their money.

In the Juniors​

It was a race of two, with Charlie & Zac breaking away immediately from Zoe & Thomas.

Charlie eventually broke away from Zac after about 5 minutes and won comfortably.

Zoe also broke away from Thomas after the first lap and was leading easily with just one lap to go. But with a concerted effort by Thomas and a lapse in concentration by Zoe (in the home straight), Thomas was able to pip Zoe on the line by about half a wheel.

A & B grades

These two set of as one bunch, racing together for what was in the end 5 intermediate sprints.

Two won by Craig Robinson, two by David O’Brien, and one by Joel Armitage.

With a sprint every 3 laps, and with the seven riders staying together for about 15 minutes it was exciting racing. At the bell there were still 5 riders in contention, with all 5 competing in the final sprint, with only about a wheels length separating 1st to 3rd.

The final results for all grades will be published soon.

Great racing everyone
Thanks to all our helpers and officials!
