Rain fails to slow pace

The first race was the 500m sprint from a rolling start. The under 13 women was won by Emily Wiggins, with Isabella Commons second and Hannah Waters third.

In the under 13 men it was Baden Grey first, Joshua Howe second and Toby Dew third.

The under 15 women resulted in Danica Wiggins and Dharlia Haines racing side by side for 500m, with 20m to go. Wiggins just edged ahead to win by less than a wheel, with Emma Lendrum third.

The under 15 men sprint was a repeat of the State under 15 men criterium with Sebastian Barrett and Jordan Dawson clear of the field and Barrett´┐Żs powerful sprint propelling him to first again.

Courtland Wood finished third. Due to injury and illness the under 17 women was a two rider race, with Rebecca Blake winning from Talia Banks. The biggest field was the under 17 men and Julian Krohn kicked early and held off a fast finishing Craig Wiggins with Conor Leahy third.

The rain has eased to a constant drizzle by time the next race the time trial started.

The under 13s raced one lap of the 2.1km circuit, the under 15 and under 17 women three and the under 17 men six.

In the under 13 women, it was Emily Wiggins first, Hannah Waters second and Amelia Stones third.

In the under 13 men it was Joshua Howe first, Toby Dew second and Matthew Connan third. The under 15 women resulted in Emma Lendrum first, Dharlia Haines second and Danica Wiggins third.

The under 15 men was another reversal of the earlier results with Jordan Dawson winning, Sebastian Barrett second and Courtland Wood again third.

Rebecca Blake was again victorious in the under 17 women with Talia Banks second. Craig Wiggins was untouchable in the time trail, riding away to win. Conor Leahy was second and two seconds away in third place was Tyler Lindorff.

The final event was the road race, a 3.6km circuit using all the Motorplex and including a couple of technical corners, a short climb and some exposed sections.

The under 13s combined men and women were first away for a five lap 18km race.

Most of the bunch stayed together until the final lap. First round the final corner was a very select group of under 13 men. Baden Grey used the same burst of speed as he did in the sprint to score a convincing win.
