November 21/99 2:45 am - Illawarra CC Race Results 21/11/99

Posted by on 11/21/99

Thankfully the rain held off last Sunday until after the 18.5km time trial was finished.

Riders either like time trials or dislike them with a vengeance, they are difficult as each rider has to pace themselves and not rely upon others, hence the name 'the race of truth'. A lot of riders use them to assess how they are performing in relation to the same time the year before or since they have been using different training methods or just to compare themselves with other riders of similar ability.

Thankfully no one uses Jono Hall to compare themselves with as he consistently takes minutes less than the second place getter. In his last four starts in the past two years he has recorded 24:09, 24:16, 24:34 and 24:31 last Sunday. Not bad considering he is in a rest period. The closest anyone has come to him was a 25:09 by Garth Hennessy in January this year.

Second fastest time went to Paul Forrest in a time of 26:28, a huge improvement of 3:02 over his last TT in January. Hans Batteard again showed his strength in recording a time of 27:32 for third fastest time.

Brendan Cato and Mark Scott were also very impressive in recording 27:55 and 27:58 respectively. Both promising juniors have just accepted scholarships with the Illawarra Academy of sport.

Next Sunday's race is a 27km scratch race.

The Nutra-Life Illawarra Cycle club track open will be held next Saturday. A good size field of almost 100 riders will be competing, ensuring some very exciting racing. Juniors will start at 5:00pm and seniors at 6:30pm. At 1:00pm the first half of the Southern Division Track Cycling Championship will be held with the second segment before the Southern Highlands track open on Sunday.

One of the features of the night will be the wheel race with a Festina watch valued at over $450 as the main prize.
