Some 83 riders saddled up for between 6 and 12 laps of the Yarra Glen circuit which has a leg to suit most types: a climb up Glenview Road for the sylphlike spinners (does anyone do the big ring tango from the bottom?); a downhill blast on King St which brings the big units to the fore (if only briefly); and some power play on Yarraview Road for those with the big engines. Neil Cartledge got the day off with a bang as he punctured a single on his warm up. Andrew Buchanan rode to his rescue with a replacement wheel as the s instructions.
We have Ken , Peter and Jim to thank for the race reports in this week’s newsletter.
