Anzac 25 Wrap-up

The Anzac 25 Open was held this past weekend and Kangaroo Point was out in force across all the Senior Divisions.  

For KP the day started with the Womens C race.  KP had a strong contingent of members including a number of Flyers.  The race was great to watch with smart riding from all members.  The intermediate was a long sprint won by Yvette W.  The finale was a sensational two up sprint between rising stars Simone L & Steph B.  Steph led out from the bottom of the hill and just held out the fast finishing Simone.  The photo showed Steph took the win!

In Womens D, a lone Flyer, Mandy R learning lessons from the intermediate sprint held her own in the final and took the top step.  Congratulations Mandy!

In the Masters D race, a smart race ridden by Jeff K and Michael B, but it was Calvin T and David H taking the glory with a First and Fourth respectively.  It was a very enjoyable race to watch.  Congratulations to all.

A fairly quiet race for Members in Masters A, B & C with everyone finishing with the bunch.

The Anzac 25 race itself was a grueling 25 lap affair of the race circuit.  In the end it was a break of three riders who stayed away to take the first couple of steps of the podium with a bunch kick determining the lower places.  Club member Travis S was pipped taking fourth place.

Congratulations to Stephen R with his third place in a fast and furious bunch sprint in the Elite B race.

Congratulations to Hannah T for taking third in the Womens A race, with strong rides from Michaela M & Brooke S.

In the Elite C race, members lit the race up from the start with every lap seeing a different group of riders off the front.  By the time the intermediate sprint was on, Cameron L had found himself in a prime spot to take it out and did so convincingly.  Unfortunately, shortly after, a number of riders were caught up in a crash.  This neutralized the race while ambulances tended the fallen riders.  In the end it was a neutral lap followed by a one lap dash.  The rider who had enjoyed a break was given his advantage back and went on to take the win.  Once again, Cam L had the perfect position and took out the bunch kick (and second overall) with the remaining KP riders finishing strongly.

Everyone was awesome.  The End.
