MadDog's Final Summer Beauie Feb 12th

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

This wasn't just any old Beauie but MadDog's last race before heading over to the US to race with Team Type 1. Pressure and expectations were high and with signs of good form there were rumblings of everyone vs Maddog.

MadDog's chance of a win was looking slim with sprinters Mick Curran and Nash Kent looking to spoil the party. It's not exactly clear who's side Cam Peterson was on or if he was just looking to hand out the hurt bag. The pace was on from the gun, many finding the speed out of the hairpins too much to sustain causing the 30 strong bunch to quickly reduce in size.

NSCC Ladies Ride - Sunday Feb 19

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

On December 4 last year, NSCC held the inaugural "NSCC Ladies Ride".

An initiative thought up by the Lovely Kim Austen and the not so (visually) lovely Mr Neil Matthews to encourage more girls to get their bikes out and have a bunch ride with partners etc. or just to come and meet other girls on bikes.

The day was a huge success http://northernsydneycyclingclub.org.au/node/32820

Bobbin Head Cycle Classic

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

On Sunday the 25th of March the Rotary clubs of Ku-ring-gai and Turramurra are organising a charity ride in our backyard.

There are multiple options but the main ride is from Turramurra to Calga and back via Bobbin Head, 100km. The ride is to raise funds for two charities Lifeline–Harbour to Hawkesbury and a project to build a Hospital at Bo, Sierra Leone.

It would be great to see a large number of NSCC riders support the event and if interest is sufficient we will evaluate cancelling the current Beaumont Rd scheduled for this date.

Beauie Worlds Report Jan 22

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Rain threatened the race this morning with a 50/50 decision on running or not, finally leaning to the "lets run" decision once the rain stopped around 8:15.

With isolated rain all over the north shore the numbers were unusually big for the weather conditions.
Rain made the course super slippery and the three grades rode well to keep everyone upright.

Each grade was shortened slightly as more rain threatened the end of the race. The racing was fast and aggressive each coming down to a bunch sprint.

A small but aggressive bunch turned up for racing today keen to get their emotions fired up in preparation for the live coverage of the Australian Road Nationals later in the day.

A Grade

The racing in A was fast and Timmy "Version 2.0" Duncans return to racing has him motivated for a crack at the A Grade title.
Not without a great showing together with Andy Logan, the two boys put in strong displays on the bike. Perhaps 2 new guns to watch in 2012.

Super Sue Forsythe...really is Super....and better than the AIS can recognise.

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

North Sydney's Sue Forsyth (Team SiS-NSW) upstaged her breakaway rivals to take out race two of the NSW Grand Prix Series at Cronulla on Sunday afternoon.

Headline courtesy of Cyclingnews.....there is no better way to sum up NSCC's Sue Forsythe's performance today at the Cronulla Round of the NSW Cycling Grand Prix.

Coming off the AIS development selection camp last week and deemed by AIS selectors as "not aggressive enough", this analysis of Sue Forsythe as a cyclist resulted in her non selection of the 2012 AIS Womens Team.

Beauie Worlds Oct 30 - Race Report

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

1 week on from the Grafton and 1 day on from the Melbourne to Warnambool, a large selection of the regular Beauie Worlds riders were kicking up their heels for a well earned break.

As always Central Coast CC arrived en masse to have a go at adding to their trophy cabinet.
Their presence turned todays race from a handicap format into a full blown club vs club duel.

We really appreciate the local support from the riders from Central Coast CC together with the Manly Warringah club who are now regularly walking away with big chunks of the prize money (not that we enjoy this)......

Croc Trophy: Subaru-MarathonMTB.com win Teams, Masters AND 5th on Elite GC

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Coming off a 3rd place stage finish yesterday, Maddog has finished 5th on the Croc Trophy GC.
Arguably one of his best ever performances on a pushy (outside Beauie Worlds of course)

Adding to the achievement is the fact that with Subaru-MarathonMTB.com teammates Mike Blewitt (NSCC) and Graeme Arnott, the 3 boys also won the teams classification and got Graeme up for 1st place in the Masters Category.

Truly an amazing effort when you understand the scope and difficulty of this race.

In a quote from Maddog today "That was the hardest race ever. I never want to ride a bike again".

Grafton to Inverell 2011 - is B the new A?

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Grafton to Inverell is arguably the toughest one day race on the Australian racing calendar.
228km directly west from Grafton on the North Coast with a 17km climb of Gibraltar Range which takes about an hour to ascend and finishes approx 140km from the finish.

The old saying goes....."you might not win the Grafton on Gibraltar, but you definitely can lose it there"

Again the climb determined the outcome of the race with a breakaway of 5 initiated on the climb in A Grade and playing a key role in determining the outcome of the race in B & C also.

Justin Morris - 3rd place Stage 8 Croc Trophy

After a day of chewing stem, dodging bushfires and surviving ex QuckStep riders attacks, Maddog broke away in the closing stages of todays stage to claim 3rd place. An amazing effort. Well done

Without any first hand accounts of the goings on.....I'm just gonna redirect all traffic to Maddogs latest stage report from the Croc Trophy and the cycling news race report

http://www.cyclingnews.com/races/crocodile-troph...

Pretty happy I didn't lend him one of my nice white jerseys for the race.....

Beauie Worlds Oct 16 - Crash in B ends any chances for A

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Spring Cycle lived up to its name on a weather front. Beautiful 23 degree sunshine at 8am greeted nearly 60 riders across 3 grades.

Daniel Vanechop top corner

Due to the large number of B Grade sign ons, the field was capped for safety at 25 riders with a few of the stronger riders trying their luck in A Grade.

A big thank you to Central Coast CC who turned up en masse to have a crack at NSCC's cash prize draw. Together with MWCC, the inter club rivalry is strong in 2011.

In doing so, riders in all grades gave it a solid crack.
