Re: RBCC Racing @ Heffron

D grade at the moment is mainly juniors and women. Average speed around 30 to 31 km/h. Usually less than a handful of riders. You choice but I would suggest c grade if you do any sort of training.

I too had the same cracked rims on the Bonty's - twice. Renegade replaced them under warranty although the second time they went up one level in spec (eylets on the rims after approval from TREK) and have not had a problem since. Another mate had the same issue. Might be a common problem with the &q...

NO racing at Heffron this ANZAC long weekend. There is no racing on a Saturday at Heffron on a public Holiday long weekend. It just gives the volunteers who bring you racing nearly every week of the year a break. I will be taking advantage of my break and racing at Oatley Park with St George club. A...

Further to previous posts on average speed calculations: I enquired with the powers that be and the calculations are correct regarding decilmisation etc. However the course distance used in the calculations is 2.02km. This pretty much what i measure each week via my speedo. HTH Regards Beanzy

My 2c.. No matter what distance or time you use the quoted average can be used as comparison between grades as they are all calculated the same way. They therefore provide the best analysis on a week to week basis. The quoted figure on RBCC website is also close to my recorded figure before i pulled...

D Grade race report : Addition (from Beanzy's POV) Very fast pace, constant attacks. I chased down attack with Lindsey i think on lap 10 hoping to drag bunch with me as the attackers were quite capable of going off on their own. When i caught them, they attacked again but i was spent after the chase...

Good Race report Mike, but i have to disagree on some points. 1. I apologise once again for cutting a little to close chasing down the attack early in the race. It was a case of dont let the Tony (aka as the priest) get away with a known (Ryan) time triallist. As we all know Tony can get away with a...
