Top Racing for 2018 SLCC Women's Series Finale

It was an early start and beautiful morning for the Criterium - the final event in the SLCC Women's Series held at Victoria Park on 23 September. C and D grades had a really quiet and spacious track which produced some excellent racing. It was great to see the bunches working together but also the tactics come into play. Sprints were won by Vanessa Seeliger and Sharlene Harding taking out the D and C grade prizes. A much bigger group raced in the B and A grades, which we were thrilled about seeing as there were some tired legs out there with the SS the previous day - absolute champions for coming out again. The racing saw riders working together, using the group, dropping back and then surging again for the sprints and the finish line. Sprint prizes for B and A grades went to Emma Seeliger and Staci McCudden



Sprint winners: Staci (A grade), Emma (B grade), Sharlene (C grade) and Vanessa (D grade).


We had some riders new to racing joining us (Vanessa - second race) as well as seasoned professionals - all aiming for placings which made for an exciting morning of racing and finish to the 2018 SLCC Women’s Series. 

Congratulations to all the racers for your efforts today and for supporting the entire Series.

A big thank you to all our volunteers who supported the racers and kept them safe. Without this support, events like this would not be possible. Also to VLCC for working with us and sharing the track - this worked really well.

The morning went well thanks to the efforts of the Commisaire and Volunteer teams; Graeme Zucker, Paul Trim, Ken Gooding, Robert Faulkner, Felicity Laing, Leanne Perugini, Judy Ireland, Carmel Barber, Anne-Marie Wesley and thank you too, to James Caracoussis for the excellent pictures.
