22nd February 2014
Twinnies season is almost over, just a couple more races and then all that’s left is the Club Championships and the presentation night festivities
Club Championship nominations have opened, for those who have not participated in a club championship event, it runs like this. Your handicap start is gone and its down to a mass start for both male and female. It doesn’t take long for people to sort themselves out in the swim, then the bike leg- we will have police at the both sets of traffic lights to ensure no one gets caught at those bloody red lights, with marshals at Fraser/Amaroo and Woodlands Drive Roundabout. It really is a great finale to the season, so why not give it a go. For those that still wish to race but not in the championships it will be like any other Saturday morning.
Then, its time dig out your finest clothes and jewels for the presentation dinner. Cost will be $40 per head for members and non-members/partners. For members you ticket has been discounted by $1 for every race you have completed up until Saturday 22/2. Please note there will be not ticket sales at the door, in fact ticket sales will close the week before to ensure we can give numbers attending to the caterers. So get in early.

Dr Bike Roger was up overseeing the method cyclist were traversing the Pink X’s corner and reported back that everyone was going really really well until nearly the last rider turned the corner with the inside pedal down and guess what, that pedal hit the bitumen and got ejected into a half pike before crashing into the bitumen, fortunately no damage to the bike and the rider with a bruised ego mounted the bike and finished the race albeit with a few minor scratches.
Dr Bike Junior Paul talked about ‘Grand Fondo’ bike rides. These rides vary in distance from 60km-260km.
