Race 10 of 29

Race Report 15 November 2014

Wind is my friend, so I heard someone on Saturday morning say. He also said, “If you love hills, they will reward you” all a little too deep at 5:50am at Twinnies. There was plenty of talk about which way the wind was coming from, as far as I’m concerned, it was either behind you, hitting you from the side or you were heading into it.

Lisa Ross – lets go!

 

For those who still want a Twinnies Tri Suit, please let me know, we need a few more to make our minimum order and I already have orders for four (4), this is an ideal chrissy present, and you are getting a quality tri suit for the subsided price of $100.

Are you going to the Chrissy party, well better bring your money along next Saturday to confirm your booking, No Money No Seat on the boat.

We had our  first breakfast this season, and so keen were members to tuck in, the presentation took second place, so Doctor Bike giot bumped. Sorry Paul, but good to see club faithful Stuey Chambers turn up, seems he only made it to a green patch along Darlington Drive to offer support, alsa he is not  Michelle Alchin, a lot quieter!

The Pink Marshall police reported that 3 people crossed onto the incorrect side of the road. Of those, two were first timers and have been spoken to. The other, an experienced triathlete was spoken to last week and again breached tthis week, crossing over the pink crosses. He will be suspended from competing at Twinnies for two races.  Paul Woodger has again offered his expertise free of charge to take anyone around the course and share his tips and experience. He leaves the transition area at 0600 on Friday morning, if you’re keen, please let him know either through our contacts page, our facebook page or give him a call at Coast Cyclery

The committee is calling upon all members, that if you see someone doing something wrong or dangerous, speak to them at the time and let the committee know. Without everybodies support in maintaining a safe event, it could easily be closed down by the Powers that Be- Police, Council, Roads & Maritime Services.

Race Report 8 Movember

With all our Twinnies members safety back after Noosa, Tracey with a new bike! It was good to see our numbers were back up again.

As you are all aware were need marshals each week, we have been fortunate to fill the mandatory points at Fraser/Amaroo and Woodlands Drive. We introduced marshalling at the Pink Crosses –corner of Ash and Glen Ayr Drive last season as a safety measure as some riders inadvertently found themselves on the incorrect side of the road. Des Gooda marshalled the Pink x’s on Saturday and identified a number of riders who were lucky there was no car/truck coming the opposite way over the crest of the hill. BE WARNED ANY FURTHER BREACH OF CROSSING THE PINK CROSSES WILL SEE YOU SUSPENDED FOR TWO RACES. If you have difficulty travelling around this corner, please slow down, let us know. Paul Woodger has offered his services to any member free of charge to take you around the bike course.

We are know taking nominations for marshalling the pink crosses. I am seeking nomination for 6 December until the end of the season, remember to qualify for the Club Championships, you must have marshalled sometime throughout the season. Names can  be placed on the sheet at registation.

Marshalls for next week 15 November
Fraser/Amaroo – Julie West
Woodlands Drive Lisa Warner
Pink X’s Angie Allan
