SCC organised a fantastic day of racing at Edwardstown Velodrome on Australia Day for 2016.
Female & Male riders of all abilities, ages, shapes & sizes were on show ranging from Little Trakeez to future stars in junior ranks to some old heads in Masters Ranks to some of South Australia’s elite local riders.
Some folks out to beat personal bests or having a roll around with friends – we had it all covered.
Heart starters for all grades started the ball rolling.
- 1 lap handicap races – Matthew Opperman, Michael Chaffey, Philip McIntosh, Lewis Walker, Tyler Stevens, Jacob Currie had good wins in the 1 lap dash with the biggest cheers reserved for the Little
- Trakeez – Gemma Chaffey, Isabella Currie & Sophie Lennon who all also roared around the track for half lap time trials.
Peoples Choice Credit Union Wheel Race Finals with the winners being:
- Senior Men – Malcolm Clasohm (135mts)
- Senior Women – Isabella Dashorst (30mts)
- Junior Men – Tyler Stevens (310 mts)
- Junior Women – Rayna Anesbury (30 mts)
These were feature events on the program – lots of tactics to save the legs for the final sprint coming
Flying 200’s – By invitation each rider did 2 laps behind the motorbike & wound up for a flying 200 with Matt Franks was red hot 11.60 just pipping Sean Hennessy by 0.06 seconds in hot & slightly windy conditions.
Senior & Junior Italian pursuits were popular viewing with riders of all ages working together.
Motor pacing for Seniors & Junior A grade were hotly contested with winners including Matt Franks, Andrew Welch, Gemma Kernich & Tristan Saunders.
Junior Scratch races provided wins for Noah Davies, Oliver Wilson & Harrison Opperman.
Madison Invitation Race – A first for our track carnival proved to be a hit with riders & spectators –
we hope to grow this event each year. Phil Dixon & Sean Hennessy showed their class in what was quite a brutal pace & race throughout.
It was great to have our friends from Whyalla, Mount Gambier and Riverland CC’s on board for racing.
Some of the Italian Pursuits saw “Country v City” teams that offered a chance for bragging rights.
Being able to set up teams was a great opportunity to get those competing into “team mode” for our InterClub Event on Adelaide Cup day. Please keep an eye out for that event on March 14th at Edwardstown & get involved.
These country clubs need our support so please race at their events & return the support they give the city clubs.
All in all around 70 riders participated & we hope that all had a great day like we did.
As you can see there was a race for everyone – sprinters, enduros & all in between in our busy program. Thank you to all who played a part in making it a successful day.
Hope to see you all out there for Australia Day 2017.
