Originally this website was for the Tour of Two Rivers which was a series of scratch races held during Spring. This series has now run its course. This website will still remain but it will be used a platform for the various cycling clubs in the Riverina to help promote their interclub races through out the year.
The race at Griffith has just been cancelled. Griffith CC really needed 40+ entrants to make hosting the race viable and currently we only have 32 entrants.
As a couple of races have been changed this Spring we have mixed the format up a bit. Tolland and Griffith Cycle Clubs are now holding their races as handicaps instead of scratch races and the point score has been suspended.
At the end of this year’s TTR it will be time to revaluate the format of the TTR. It may become another handicap series or it may get rolled into the TDR as an extended handicap series or it may even be dropped altogether. Have a think about what format you would like and let your club committee and myself know your thoughts.
A grade: 1st Matt Clark 2nd Tomash Loki 3rd Angus Harris.
B grade: 1st Brad Rose 2nd Cameron Justin 3rd Charly McMillan.
C grade: 1st Shaun Power 2nd Michal Traka 3rd John Holgate
The results and General Classification after the Cootamundra Criterium are now up on the Tour of Two Rivers Website.
Leading into the final stage this weekend at Uranquinty James Toole only has to start the race in order to secure the A-grade Title and Peter Treloar has already secured the KOM Title
In B-grade Bradley Drew, Andrew Bruce, Michael Schmid and Scot Gill are all within three points of each other and are all capable of taking out the B-grade Title. The KOM title is just as open with a good 5 or so riders capable of taking it out.
Tony Aichinger looks set to take out C-Grade although 2nd place will fought out amongst Flavio Zanotto, Ryan Knight and David Herrick. Expect a ding dong battle between Flavio Zanotto and Mark Dunlop for the KOM title.
Eddie O’Farrell has a solid lead of seven points over Ian Davidson who are light years ahead of the rest of D-grade. The KOM title will also be a two horse race between the same two riders.
If you want to be part of the action make sure to get your entry in ASAP.
Entries for the final stage at Uranquinty are now open and you can view the current start list here.
COOTAMUNDRA ROTARY BIKE FESTIVAL 9, 10th November
Incorporating TTR STAGE 5 – The Cootamundra Criterium
The Cootamundra Rotary Bike festival will be held over the weekend November 9th and 10th. The purpose of the festival is to promote Cootamundra as a bike riding destination and potentially provide a constant stimulus for our local economy as bike tourists come to visit. The cycle club has 4 race weekends a year that bring outside money to town, the bike festival’s hope is to encourage a steady stream of bike riders to visit right through the year.
There are a fair few activities over the weekend that you might want to participate in or just bring the kids down for a look.
◾Two social rides. One 30kms long, the other 70kms. This would be a good opportunity to share your sport with your partner or kids. It’s not a race, it’s an opportunity to enjoy a casual ride. Sign on at Scout Hall 8.30
◾Markets. There will be about 40 market stalls around the Scout Hall.
◾Antique bike display. A lot of old and interesting bikes as well as information regarding Coota’s bike history will be on display in the Scout Hall. 9am till 5pm
◾Bike toss. Come and see just how far you or your kids can throw a bike. You know you’ve wanted to in the past, here’s your chance. Adult and junior competitions. Medallions for the winners. 1pm Start
◾Bike challenge. Our new federal member Angus Taylor will take on Janine Lee, riding on a trainer for 3 hours. 2pm start
◾Trivia night. 7pm at the RSL, raising funds for RDA. Get a table of 8 together and come and have a fun night. There are some great prizes and an auction of some pretty interesting items will be held(see the website).
◾The Criterium. 10am start! If you’re not riding, come and have a look it’s worth watching! Enter here: http://riverinainterclubracing.com/ttr/entry/
As bike riders this is a good opportunity to get behind and promote our sport in our region. I hope to see a lot of you there supporting this weekend.
Here is the current Entry List for the race at Coolamon and unfortunately it is still a bit on the low side. Given that the website was down earlier this week some people may not have had a chance to get their entries in. If you are one of these people can you please get your entry in today.
