its one road, not exactly sure hoe long, but ts mainly flat with turnable corners for the first half, then a bit of down hill, then a bit of flat, then more down hill. U turn on the road at both ends, so on the last lap, you have to come out of the turn on the road, then up a bit of hill, then some flat and slight hill, then cornery bits and final sprint. Id really say this race suits strong srpinters, as the up hill is nothing of note, and the corners are no challenge, its just the on the road turns that are a bit of a challenge.

All I can say is that if Mark Lacey and Micklan could ride like they drive they would win every time. Try following them to and from the course in the car...Lacey never stuck to the speed limit once - and it was double points!! Still I guess I have to thank them for getting me there and home - even though I only have 4 license points left.

Congrats to Micklan on the 5th place and Anthony Platts-Bags for the 2nd in C grade. Chidgey took the plunge up to B grade which looked tough.

D grade was a non event with Hugo, Camilla, myself + 1 other in it. We had the option of riding the grade and taking a gauranteed podium, but opted to try and just latch on to C grade - but it was impossible being at the back at the hair pins. Still - we latched on to some rogue C and even a B grader and got a good ride in. Thanks Toff for the tow. My recommendation to any one starting to ride at Beaumont would be to start in C grade.

Still - it was a good day seeing a lot of DHBC red at the race. I could quote Kirk Cobain's album and say it was a classic case of "Smells like 'team' spirit". ah well Teen / Team close enough.

B grade report.

I was feeling a bit off colour and wondering what I was doing there. In the early laps I was burning a lot of energy off the turns and then I planted myself towards the front, but slowly worked backwards. There were a number people doing silly things to get forward and I didn't want to be apart of that. A grade crashed in front of us and we jammed on the brakes, then a bus decided to pulled out of a laneway and we had to hit the anchors again. A little latter I found myself towards the back with Tim, who was wearing a D grade number and Chidgey and then Chidgey did an good maneuver to plant himself towards the front, while Tim was suffering due to the problems he was having with his gearing.

Some idiot decided to park his car on the road with the hazard lights on, if 2 bunches had arrived at the same piece of road at the same time it would of been messy.

Last lap, I'm near the back and decide not to contest the finish, I see several riders cheat by overtaking on the wrong side of the road. Someone yells out numbers of those who are disqualified. Tim is not in a good position, but Chidgey is. Didn't see the finish, I rolled over about 100mtrs behind.

Anyone know what the average speed was?

Got a flat on the ride back to Hornsby, hit a small rock and flat spotted.

Found out on the way back that B grade completely filled out and some riders were told to ride A or C.

Chidgey has posted some picks on FB

my report would be much the same as Mikes. Except i started to contest the sprint then ran out of juice. its hard work having to sprint out of every turn around for 200 metre's. was a great day out and the numbers were fantastic.

That's what people have posted on tour de mike, I'm more inclined to believe 38.6 as B didn't lap C

Forgot to mention, the cause of the crash in A grade was half wheeling
