Northern is ahead on the points table 60 points to Eastern’s 41 after today’s first race in the Tour de Metro four-race series in cold but sunny conditions at National Boulevard.
Northern had the home ground advantage and had a few more riders – 56 to Eastern’s 43. With one visitor from Hume, the total start number was 100 riders resulting in good fields across all grades. Northern had winners in A grade Mark Seddon, C grade Terry Hollibone, E grade Ian Bishop and F grade Brian Forbes, with placegetters in all grades.
Congratulations to everyone who braved the cold conditions to race today and a big shout out to officials and volunteers for making the race possible.
Let’s keep Northern on top by continuing the good numbers at next week’s race two, again hosted by us at NB on Sunday.
