Dear all,

With the advent of Daylight Savings Saturday race times have now changed.

E and F grade (numbers permitting) - 4pm
A, B, C, D grades - 5pm

Hope to see you all there.

Hey Beanzy,

Given that RBCC have a club championship race on Saturday morning (11 Oct) at ECR, will there be Heffron racing in the afternoon? RBCC Website is not helpful.........

I'm looking to have a crack this Saturday.

Anything unusual this week (from a normal Sat arvo at Heffron that is)?

5pm start, right?

Probably just have a roll in D grade, although I suspect there ain't one with low numbers, so C is likely.

I have no idea how I'll fare. Doesn't matter really. Just a bit of fun.

I heard from one of our club members who went last week and it was a combined C/D. The pace was high at 37km/h and it was tough. Not sure if there'll be enough numbers to have split C and D this week. Ummm... Time for a bit of racing fun before the license expires at the end of this year.

Alex, I just enquired with RBCC about Sat racing and they replied today with
RBCC races every Saturday of the year. Year in, year out except on public holidays.
...
To answer you question, the next crit race will be next Saturday.

I won't be racing this weekend, but hope to give it a go some time soon.

5pm start correct.

For the past few weeks we have only been getting a handful of D graders (< 5) so C and D have been combined. Cgrade were at or slower than D grade before the combination.

Althogh i was not there last weekend reports indicate C grade were quicker than they have been the last few weeks. Can't tell who turns up on the day.

If the numbers turn up C and D will be seperated.

Thanks.

Having ridden all grades at Heffron over the years, avg speed is not always a good indicator of how hard a race is. Sometimes a higher avg speed indicates a more even paced race which can often be easier than a slower but more attacking style of race.
