THREE members of the Peel District Cycling Club (PDCC) represented WA at the National Junior Track Championships in Melbourne last week.
Members of the Under-17 Men’s team Oliver Bleddyn and Jay Lindorff secured bronze and Dharlia Haines won gold in the Under 17 Women’s Points race.
On Sunday , the Peel Districts Cycling Club assisted the Australian Time Trial Association (ATTA) with a 40km time trial.
Originally scheduled to race the Hopeland course down Hopeland Road, roadworks meant a change to the Serpentine course using Karnup Road, Rapids Road, Rowe Road and Hopeland Road.
The high humidity and strong north-easterly made racing challenging.
Fortunately, the forecast thunderstorms did not arrive until racing was complete but a number of riders still set personal best times for the course, which for a number of competitors it is all about, not worrying about other riders and competing against yourself.
In the battle for fastest time, it was Stu Helm against 18-year-old Conor Leahy.
An aggressive first lap secured Helm the title of fastest rider on the day.
In the battle for standard time honours, riders received a time bonus based on age.
Chris Glasby beat long time nemesis Colin Rose into third place overall and winner on standard time.
Next Sunday , Peel District Cycling Club will return to the Hopeland Community Centre for a 16km time trial down Hopeland Road, turning around well before the roadworks.
