Jack Frost Came Out To Play

on .

Jack Frost came out to play on Sunday when Junior, Elite & Masters Athletes flocked to Gumeracha for round 3 of the Skinny Lattes Cycling Club Race Series.


Senior Women lined up on a 56.7km course in a handicap race. This is never the easiest things to get right on a flat course let alone one that had so many leg sapping undulations and a heavy road surface.


Senior Women Handicap Race Report 56.7km 552 metres gained.

With the small bunches working to catch the 3 riders off limit, and to stay away from those chasing, groups were caught and passed, the small scratch group of Liz Buckley & Rhiannon Hughes used their impressive ability racing Time Trials to reel in chopping block, but this combined grouping did not, unfortunately, have the firepower to chase down those in front who were burying themselves to stay away.


U17 Women Scratch Race Report 39.7km 389 metres gained

Eight U17 Women, who had all raced on Saturday told their understandably tired legs to take a back seat as they tackled the lumpy course, these young athletes were inspiring, as they battled the never ending hills around Martins Hill. Those that dropped off the pace realised the strength in regrouping with others who had also popped, sharing the workload and working together hoping to slowly regain some lost ground.

Tight Competition Across Many of the Grades

Near perfect race conditions greeted SA's women as they tackled the Skinny Lattes Time Trial at Milang on Mothers Day.   By the 9 am start time the temperature had lifted, skies were clear and the notorious winds of Lake Alexandria were absent.

The Skinny Lattes Race Series will again provide a valuable opportunity to those Junior and Senior Women targeting the State Time Trial Championships on June 3rd.

Mother's Day, Sunday, May 14th will see a selection of South Australia's keenest riders out testing themselves on the out and back course from Milang to Finniss.

Perfect Conditions for Riders at Murray Bridge

on .

 

DSC 3905

Hardly a breath of wind disturbed the waters of the mighty Murray River today when 40 female cyclists rolled into town and established camp at Sturt Reserve for the annual Skinny Lattes Cycling Club Tour.

The near perfect conditions in the morning saw many of the riders recording personal best times on the out and back Individual Road Time Trial Circuit on the outskirts of town.  It was no surprise when  U17 Junior rider, Olivia Wheeler, dominated the Junior Divison 1category.  Wheeler's ride was strong enough though for her to take out the Fastest Time of the day across all senior grades as well, congratulations Olivia!

Sunday's Road Race course looks deceptively flat on paper but the heavy road surface, ever present lake breeze and undulating bumps was enough to sap the legs of many riders.  Despite numerous attacks, A & B grades come down to nail-biting bunch sprints.

The tour consists of three stages, across the two days and has riders competing in Individual Road Time Trial & a Criterium on Saturday, then backing up with a Road Race on Sunday.
