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
Sunday saw athletes competing in two events locally and another interstate.
First up was the SDVLCC Handicap race at McLaren flat on a lumpy course and a challenge for the handicapper.
Colin was best placed in 3rd with Greg in a close 5th
