Boxing Day Criteriums

Earlier this week on Boxing Day, South Coast Cycling Club held their annual race around the bay in Glenelg as part of the Bay Festival of Sport with Sponsorship from People Choice

Both coaches raced in their respective grades. Phil having been moved up into B grade from last year, the short technical circuit and the pace of the bunch proved too much for many including Phil and he was pulled from the race.

Michelle had better luck being placed in C grade with only two other women. The handicapping was not great and she should have raced with B grade. The racing was hard but she managed to pull of the win!








Nathan also had a good race in Junior C grade with 3rd place
