Stock Rocks

Once again we had a good size field to contest the race at Stockinbingal. It was especially pleasing to see so many riders make the trip across from Canberra including NRS riders and some riders taking part in their very first handicap. It is always good to see new riders take part in our series and it is great to hear that the TDR has a great reputation for giving lower graded riders an opportunity to get a taste of mixing it up with other clubs.

The highlight for many was how the race kicked off – impromptu “Drops of Jupiter” karaoke by some locals that were still very much on the piss at 10:00!!!!

The race itself was as close to wind free as Stockinbingal gets and this allowed for some very fast racing. The scratch boys did a good job setting a new race record of 1:06:49* which equates to an average speed 42.7km/h. Despite this they couldn’t quite catch the front markers who managed to hold on for victory.
