Stromlo – Condor Creek (Goulburn interclub II, home) – Results
March 22, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 pm$15
We had 61 riders turn out for the second leg of the VCC-GCC-CCC interclub weekend.
By all accounts people enjoyed racing in the cool overcast conditions. The course was quite hilly including the Three Sisters and Urriara Crossing climbs, with ABC grades also getting the full Condor Creek climb.
Thanks to our friends at Goulburn Cycling Club for making the trip to Canberra, and to Canberra Cycling Club for making this a good-spirited three-way rivalry.
Special thanks to the very professional and well organised assistants this morning- Simon Dwyer, Glen Moorby, Seb Lacrampe and Lyn Vasudeva. Thanks also to Matt Haddock who stepped in to be the impromptu finish chute recorder and to Simon Lai who helped with finish line timing.
