Riverina Interclub @ 28 Apr - Peter Budd reports
The Riverina Interclub handicap was held in Albury over 65k. The wind was seemingly always in your face or a crosswind where gutter riding was the order of the day. It was a tough day where the front (handicap) groups took the honours. A good opportunity to test the legs with good race speed.
ATTA Time Trials @ 5 May @ Calga
ATTA attracted a good turn out in windy conditions with a slight chill in the air. Good rides by Mike Foster (5th from 69 starters), Jeremy Hopson (11th) & Matt Coy (21st), Tom Green (24th), Mike Lawson (42nd) & Ian Grainger (43rd).
