State Road Title Results

In extremely hot and dry conditions, Matty and IJ took on the states best in Kelbar yesterday for the State Road titles.

In Masters 2, IJ had a VERY hotly contested field. In the tough conditions, an attack on one of the major hills saw 7 riders clear the main bunch and stay away for the remainder of the race. Unfortunately, IJ was unable to make the break, but came home in a very creditable 9th position.

In the combined Masters 3 & Masters 4, the pace was on from the start of the race. Despite positioning himself well in the opening k's Matty also suffered badly in the tough conditions and failed to finish the 76ks.

The course and conditions are as punishing as they come in Queensland racing. Well done guys.
