Makarewa Race Report Saturday 22nd May
Without STMS this week it was decided to have an "unofficial ride-race" and it was up to the riders to maintain their own safety on the road.
Two groups (55 riders) set off to ride a shortened course in damp conditions. It was a flat course that suited the sprinters who culd stay with the bunch. Both groups did stay together with most riders doing their bit on the front, any attack was chased down fairly quickly.
The light rain on dirty roads had everyone looking like they had been sprayed with mud!!
