Event Rankings File
Numbers were slightly down tonight probably because we are still in the main holiday period, but never the less those racing displayed just the same grit and determination as ever. Racing started with an Unknown Distance race resulting in a win for Jake White with sibling Zak White being the first B rider over the line.
The Flying 200 produced some interesting results which were certainly augmented by the accuracy of our electronic timing system. This time Zak White was fastest with 30.703 seconds yet only 1.065 seconds separated the top five riders with Brereton Wheelers rider Simon Orme taking third place with 31.483 seconds. These results were used to seed another event later in the evening; the Match Sprint.
After an Elimination race it was onto the Match Sprint with Jake White, Simon Orme and Paul Wright racing first. This resulted in a very close ending finish with Simon over the line first ahead of Paul by a mere one hundredth of a second. More excitement followed with Giulio Cervi, Grace Lister and Mahyar Abbott all starting slowly and watching each other intently but then Mahyar made a surprise break and couldn’t be caught. The final Match Sprint saw a win for Oliver Baker with Tom White second and George Dunne third.
There was another win for Mahyar Abbott in the Marymoor Crawl and then it was all down to the final event of the evening, the 22 Lap Handicap. Simon Orme led out the B group and it’s clear to see how these riders have improved over the season all working well with each other to hold off the A group. There were only three A riders in this final event and when Paul Wright had to pull out with a mechanical problem it left just Jake White and Giulio Cervi to share the work between them. They managed to catch the B group a lap before the Intermediate Sprint but Grace Lister and Tom White not going to give in claiming first and second place respectively. Jake White had to settle for third place. Needless to say Jake was first over the line at the end of the race with Grace taking another second and Oliver Baker third.
