* Wagga (Tolland) Weekend over 4-5 March - Conor Tarlington (BiciSport) had his first taste of the traditional "gutter grovelling" NSW country handicap around the windswept Wagga countryside. Riding off Bunch 3 on the Saturday Conor rode well & was caught by the "Scratchies" in the final 40k and was blasted off in the crosswinds. The Sunday event was marred by a crash (not involving Conor) and he was a DNF.
