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…

Bryce on Fire

Bryce Lanigan showed there is no stopping him as he scorched around the Dardanup TT course in very hot conditions on Wednesday evening stopping the clock at and taking another 18 seconds off his personal best. Little wind saw most riders close to their previous best with Steve Camarri putting in a strong ride taking a few seconds off his pb and Brent Allan (despite being held up by a dog on course) also managing a one second improvement. Mark Thomas resplendent in the new go fast club skin suit recorded a consistent as did Jessica Lawler who stopped the clock at   Craige Pettit is another to have had a consistent season posting , a very respectable time. Ben Hastie had a few mechanical issues and did not appear happy with his…

Character Building Conditions

With a strong SE breeze that appeared to pick up as the evening wore on, conditions were described by Jaiden Lanigan as ‘character building’ and certainly younger brother Bryce has developed plenty of character in the last 12 months as he showed great strength and determination to record the fastest time for the stopping the clock at just one second off a personal best.  A great effort!! Most struggled in the conditions but it was definitely a night for the youth to shine with the irrepressible Isabella Commons recording a Pb and wanting to ride home afterwards and young Courtland Wood showing that he continues to improve each week by slicing a chunk off his previous best.  Meanwhile Alex Hastie showed he puts comfort first stopping to take a toilet…

Erin Impresses Again

Sporting her new Arbitrage skinsuit Erin Kineally impressed again at this week’s TT in Busselton going chicking almost the whole field and going close to rivalling Peter McDonald’s time although he did have the excuse of no TT bars or helmet. The southerly wind meant for cool conditions and was welcomed by the time keepers if not the riders as it helped to keep the very friendly flies at bay slightly. Mark Thomas was first rider away in the long course and keen to impress with his coach on hand but rival Steve Camarri once again got the better of him. Ian Kugler put in a gutsy effort as always recording with no go fast gear while Craige once again had all the fast looking gear and put in a…
