Parkhurst Criterium Round 4

Rockhampton Cycle Clubs Parkhurst crit was held again yesterday, with one of the most spectacular finishes seen from the club in a long time. M1 Cycles very own Dylan Nankivell rode solo with Cam Jennings for the last 15 min of the 50 min race. The pair put a half lap lead onto the chasing pack and held it until the very end. With cam lifting up at 2 laps to go, Dylan drove the last 2 laps at 54kph to take out the A grade win solo, with the pack only metres behind him.

Brad was unfortunate this time in this race and was unable to hold turns with the guns, he should be back with a vengeance in the near future...

C grade had new comers Scott Smith and Tim Hancock, who rode extremely well for their first ever race, and first ever crit. Way to throw yourselves in the deepend boys. Tim finished mid pack in the sprint, and Scotty not to far behind. Jodine Cragg and KP had the ride of the day, giving the boys hell in the crit, and again, finishing mid field.

Well done to all M1 riders, it was a great turn out, with even better results.

Dylan Nankivell and Brad Lawlor head south this weekend to compete in the Toowoomba two day event. It involves a criterium on saturday and a 70km kermese on sunday. Maybe Brads loss on the weekend was just a taper for this weeks big open event. Only time will tell...
