What a night of racing - both the junior and senior divisions dished it up for an awsome night's action.

Junior Report

Some great Junior performances last night ... Big thanks to Dave Beadle for helping out, and also to Kylie Gough, Hunter Gough, Alan Strong, Jo Stephens and all the other helpful troops. It is fantastic to see some really outstanding form from Lucy Dawkes and Emily Paterson in the C Grade – great for Maddy to have some girls for company! Josh Miller and Jordyn Whyte were also dishing it up in the C Grade ... some excellent racing!

In the B Grade, Jack Pedlar, Will Sutherland and Caleb Hope were standouts, with the girls keeping the boys honest ... great stuff!  In A grade, it was awesome to see Brayden Stephens coming into form with a win in the Points Race, with good consistent performances from Hamish Beadle, Tom Sexton, Josh van den Arend, Anton O’Connell and Hayden Strong.  The racing was fantastic to watch - keep up the good work team!

Senior Report
A great couple of hours of racing with really strong fields in both A Grade and B Grade ... we just need some C Graders to start turning up so we can also have a strong C Grade field too – c’mon guys, razzle each other up and come down!

It was a really fun night of racing, and I particularly enjoyed the Keirins and Team Sprints – there were some really stand out performances, particularly from Matt Archibald and Nick Kergozou in the Keirins and some great team sprint rides across the board.  Anton O’Connell was on fire again in B Grade, and Ant Leathart was also his consistent self ... must just about be time to go up to A Grade for these guys!

Big thanks to Maree Wilkins for helping out (as she always does!) and to Stu MacDonald, Mike Cooper and Ross Machejefski, as well as Caleb Hope. Hugely appreciated, cheers team!

Just to confirm, we will have racing next week, despite the Tour of Southland.
