Sunday turned out a fine hot morning for our first Choc Fish race of the year. The course was very dry and dusty, making it loose in some places. Twenty five riders took the field, including a number of youngsters which is great to see, and a group from Mackenzie College – thanks for making the effort to come down. Tell your friends and spread the word!

Hard-luck mention to Blair, who broke a chain 50m from the start of the race. He whipped home to get a spare bike and rejoin the race, but had mechanical issues which led to a crash. Better luck at the Tekapo10!

Results are below. We accept bribes, beer and hard labour on track maintenance if we have made a mistake that needs to be corrected 🙂 I will put some pictures on the web later.

The next race will be on 24th February. The location is not yet decided, and details will come out later. See you then!
