Racing Wrap Up

What a weekend of results there is to report about!!! From the South to the North, the M1 riders left their mark in a BIG WAY!!

Firstly, lets head South with the M&M boys - no need to guess which one is the peanut M&M. Damp conditions on Saturday morning threatened the Masters A Crit at Maurarrie, but Peanut M&M threw his bike on the start line anyway. Red M&M - the brains of the pair - thought it was a safer option to sit the Crit out. After holding good position for the race, Peanut M&M pulled off a 4th place in a mass bunch finish. Best result for Peanut in Masters A for this season.

Sunday, belonged to Red. With little training in the legs - besides 160k the weekend before - Red had the ride of his life in the Masters A road race. An extremely strong field of 70 was shattered to pieces in the hilly, windy conditions - only the strongest survived. What remained of the lead bunch sprinted at the end, with Red claiming 6th spot. Former Gladstone rider IJ had the ride of his life and also took out first place to claim his biggest victory of his career - so far!

I need a rest. Too much excitement for a Monday morning...

Ok, heading North now. In A grade, The Proclaimer came home in 4th place - how many turns was it that you pulled Proclaimer???

In B grade, HandiCat confirmed that she won't be a front marker for this Weekends Canelands classic, by coming 5th !!! The Silent Assassin wasn't so silent and stuck his head out the front for too long on the last lap and got busted on the final sprint to the line.

Somehow Bloomers managed to get a start in D grade for the Cawarral race???? Needless to say, Bloomers scored his first and last win in D grade for the season - automatic promotion to C grade for you Bloomers!! Claiming another place this week was the Dominator - a 3rd to add to his 1st from the last Rocky road race.

Well done to everyone who flew the M1 flag high on the weekend.
