Another great afternoon at Heffron Park – this time with the sun shining (well for most of the time)! Great to see many old faces and lots of new ones too.

We hosted the Women’s Come N Try Race prior to normal racing and even though we only had a few starters, I think they all had fun and learnt a lot! Thanks to Anna, Daniele and Clare for your time this afternoon helping with this Cycling NSW initiative.

Racing wouldn’t have been possible without our awesome Volunteer team and a massive thank you to Calvin Smith and his team (Stavros, Ian, Sam, Brian, Dietmar and Stew)! Matt Hynes was our wonderful Commissaire and Alex was First Aider (but thankfully not very busy!). Hope I haven’t forgotten anyone as it was a great turnout of volunteers!

Well done to all the juniors who were first down to Heffron Park and had a session with Andrew Logan – it was awesome to see so many of you!

REMINDER: NO RACING NEXT WEEK AS THE CLUB IS SUPPORTING THE B2B WEEKEND OF RACING IN BATHURST – SEE YOU ON 8 APRIL FOR THE NEXT RACE!

Results were:

A Grade

1st – Alex Nazarewicz (Manly)
2nd – Patrick Sharpe (St George)
3rd – Tai Huynh (North Sydney)

Thanks to everyone that came down to Heffron Park this afternoon! It was touch and go with the weather and when we weren’t getting sunburnt we were getting wet!!! Big kudos to all the riders who braved the conditions and raced!

Racing wouldn’t have been possible without our awesome Volunteer team and a massive thank you to Geoff Hillbourne, Frank Caristo and Daniele Vanolini who spent nearly 1.5 hours sweeping and clearing the track which was in pretty bad shape after all the rain we have had.

The rest of the team were manning the fort – thanks to Anna Murray (First Aid), Charles Dalrymple-Hay, Conor O’Daly, Sue Henry and of course our Commissaire, Richard Jenkins. We also had some other helpers thanks Ollie, Pina and Liam!!

Well done to all the juniors who were first down to Heffron Park and had a session with Andrew Logan – it was awesome to see so many of you!

Welcome to our new Committee Members

Recently we asked for expressions of interest to join the Committee and we are delighted to say that we had numerous members show their interest and subsequently we would like to welcome the following:

Bert Jansen – Treasurer

Bert has been a member of the Club since 2013 and enjoys racing on Saturday afternoons and training with the Club.  Since the birth of his young son his training has been disrupted, but he really wanted to be able to contribute to the Club and with his background in finance (previously working at Rabobank) and most recently at All Leasing, he is looking forward to taking on the role of Treasurer.

 

 Rick Jordan – General Committee Member
Rick has been a long standing member of the Club, joining in 2001, and will be well known to a lot of our members.  He has an IT background and has enjoyed much success over the years on and off the bike!  He loves time trialing and has been an active racing member over the years.   Rick will bring lots of energy and ideas to the Club to assist us with racing and also behind the scenes with everything technology related!

 

Conor O’Daly – General Committee Member
Conor joined the Club in 2014 to get fit and meet new people given he had moved to Australia from Ireland and was previously playing semi-professional rugby!  Finding that he really enjoyed cycling, Conor has gone onto great things, racing A grade and being part of the Mobius Project 63 MTB team.  Conor has to balance riding with the corporate life of an investment banker and is looking forward to representing our current and prospective younger
members and being involved in the long term development of the Club.

 

We ask you to join with us in welcoming Bert, Rick and Conor onto the Committee.
