Race 3 SWCC Cristal Titanium Series

For the third race in the 2016 Cristal Series we were back on the Mowen Rd course out of Nannup. This undulating wide road is deceptively challenging and some still had memories of how hard the racing was two years ago!! SWCC Drillers 1 had gone all out with their recruitment to ensure they retained their grip on the Cat 1 series lead with Bernie Swart and Bryce Lanigan subbing in. The new recruits timed their entrance to perfection arriving on the line just as the group set off in the 30km road race. Both were soon involved in the main breakaway with young Bryce going on to claim victory from Uberquads Liam Magowan with consistent placegetter Nicholas Lawler in third place ahead of Bernie with Michael Midgley from Busselton…

2016 Collie Donnybrook Race Report—Grant Eikelboom

I was feeling pretty happy with my form leading into Collie Donnybrook this year – I had a month off work watching the Tour and racking up plenty of km’s through July, and then a couple of easier weeks back at work leading into the race which I thought might make for a nicely timed taper. Sussing out the handicapping prior to the race, I found myself in the small 10min group, with Marten and Leon only 2min ahead in a very strong looking 12min group which also included Jamie, Soeren and Mick from Busselton. Right from the gun, it was clear that the majority of our 10min group (consisting of maybe 10 riders at most), were quite content to wait for the large 9min group to catch us and…

New course : Same result

Nicholas Lawler retained his tight grip on the Henk and Marg Stoffers trophy by sprinting to victory yet again this morning. The uphill finish to Ferguson Falls Winery was testing but he managed to overcome his younger Satalyst team mate, Bryce and take the win for a record third time. The slightly shorter circuit proved challenging enough for most and made it difficult for the handicap groups to get into a rhythm. The limit markers were always going to struggle to reign in the enthusiasm of the young guns with Harrison, Lowan and Josh putting the group under pressure each time they went to the front. Vern who is understandably still recovering from his recent 24 hour effort found the pace a bit hot as did the two Pauls. Working…
