Bankstown Sports CC run races at Lansdowne at the same time and on the same Saturdays as Lidcombe. I went out there 2 weeks ago when Horsley Park was canceled and then again today for my C-grade debut (got 5th, in the chase group following a 3 man breakaway). Entry fee is only $5, but there's no prize money. Everyone gets put into a raffle, though, and you might win a puncture kit or bottle of lube. That's going to be my alt. race from now on.
Get thee up to B grade! Well done!
my first c grade placing does not a b grader make! i teried a new strategy of being last for the first 5 laps ( ie bludging at the back) whilst ingnoring the odd few that tried to make a break every once and a while. with about 3 laps to go a pair seemed to have an incereasing 100-200m break, so i thought i better do my bit and drag the bunch up to them. it took a bit but they were shutdown by bell lap and it was on again. this time, i did the opposite and sat back through the s bends at around 10th, ( i would typically get excited, end up 1st or 2nd though here and get swamped in the sprint). found a fast wheel, sat on it and pushed past. for once the penrith finish straight had a tail wind, and my XXL frame was the perfect sail !!
the distance between first and last was less then 50m at the end.
The Committee has completed all the necessary documentation to re-instate the Club incorporation. These documents will be submitted by the end of this week, and all going well we will able resume racing and training by the end of next week.
Until the re-instatement, the club are not able to conduct or organize any racing or training activities of any sort or advertise any of these until this situation is resolved.
As members you may still race at any other clubs races or open events as you have coverage provided by the CNSW board and your CA licence.
The wheels of the government are moving albeit slowly. What I can tell you is our renewal request has passed the first level of approval. This now with the delegate to finalise and recommend lodgement in the government gazette. Iâ€™m hoping for this Friday, though I doubt Iâ€™ll hear until its too late on Friday to ensure we can have all of our associated CA and CNSW actions take place as well
At this stage all racing activities remain suspended.
Jeremy, there may be something for your destitute LACC riders here, check it out:
The only thing that I think is incorrect on that page is that you are not allowed to race at all when you transfer.
You are only not allowed to race at an open within 8 weeks of the transfer date. You can still play club racing.
I am also told that the paperwork is now submitted and LACC are now awaiting a response from DFT.
"Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever" Lance Armstrong
no need to transfer as we can still race clubbies. in fact i'm rather looking forward to Beauie on monday
LACC were out in force last Saturday for the Bankstown race at Lansdowne. Black and gold jerseys won/placed in B and C grades (including a fourth place in C grade by moi). What's really being missed with LACC being down is the junior races. The LACC crew bought along enough of their kids to run a juniors race out there, however, which was nice to see.
Hopefully everything will be back together for Horsely Park on the 18th.
Club Incorporation Update
Finally some good news. The notice for our reinstatement will appear in the gazette this Friday. If all goes well, the club will be reinstated this Saturday morning.
This is still to be finalised and could change. Please watch the website or Twitter account for any last minute updates.
All LACC training and racing is still suspended until the reinstatement.
LACC is now re-incorporated! Thankseveryone for your paitence, racing and training will recommence Mon. Full dets (AT) www.lidcombe-auburn.cc
