Vaughan Claims Golden Gnome

Good to see Vaughan Berge back riding strongly again today when he fronted for Uberquads 3 and took out the Cat 1 Golden Gnome.  Ryan Bailie may be the top ranked Australian Triathlete this season but his light weight frame put him at a disadvantage on the fast descent and sprint to the line at Lowden with Vaughan just getting over the top of him before the line.  Nicholas Lawler claimed third, Jaiden Lanigan fourth and Uberquads Dave Holland and Paul Kirby the minor placings. With only Nicholas and Ryan showing up for the SWCC All stars team they could not qualify in the placings in the TTT despite an impressive effort seeing them record fastest time just ahead of Vaughan’s squad.  Uberquads 1 recorded the third fastest time and…

Sun Shines on Round 1 Cristal Titanium Series

Despite weather forecasts looking somewhat average leading into Sunday’s event in Collie, the conditions were close to perfect with sunny skies and only a light southerly for the field of almost 100 who turned out for Round 1 of the Cristal Titanium Series in Collie. There was a bit of wheeling and dealing around the registration desk as teams short of riders quickly snapped up those who had entered as individuals.  This included Mark Thomas’s All Stars team who were depleted with a no show from young Brad Linfield.  After a superb performance at the recent Collie Donnybrook, Mark Benson was therefore soon tapped on the shoulder and given the unenviable opportunity to step up into cat 1 and try to hang on in a TTT with Nicholas Lawler and…

Nicholas joins Honorary Club

Nicholas Lawler today joined the legendary Brendon Morrison as the only rider to have won the Henk and Marg Stoffers Event twice.  Brendon still remains the only rider to have claimed the trophy two years in a row, but Nicholas has been one of the club’s most consistent achievers in recent years and was certainly deserving of his second victory which he indicated he had to fight just as hard for as when he first won in 2012. Starting off scratch and giving away 10 minutes to the front markers Nicholas and Bryce Lanigan were always going to be hard to beat.  Unfortunately James Stephenson was an early casualty of this group feeling the effects of an off road Duathlon the day before.  Busselton’s Jamie Coutts and Michael Midgley could…

Fast Times at Final TT

There were some fast times once again recorded at the final event in the Marg Stoffers midweek TT series on Wednesday evening in Busselton.  It was great to see a good contingent of Busselton riders including Jamie who is now a Busselton local. Brian wasn’t sure Garry was looking too comfortable at the end of the first section but he continued on past the finish line determined not to let the cramps get the better of him this week.  He actually looked a lot better on the return leg and put in a very respectable time of   Steve Camarri was closing in although not on his best form this week but still riding well to record With no TT bars new member Phil Magee did well to stop the clock…
