Wow! I think we all witnessed something pretty special at Heffron Park on Saturday with 30 women lining up for Race 1 of the Women’s Crit Series. It was simply awesome to see and thank you to all for supporting the race!
We think the handicap concept worked well but we welcome your feedback as we want to make women’s racing exciting and today certainly was a terrific start!!!
A huge congratulations to the podium getters and to those who raced for the first time – see you all on 9 September for Race 2 and more fun and champagne
