Cycling Racing - Tour De River Stage 1

Took some pics today at the Bairnsdale and Riviera Cycling Club - Stage 1 (aka week one) of the Tour De River (also coinciding with the TDF which starts TONIGHT!!!!!!).....

Weather was perfect for today's stage and the wind was good to everyone on the open flat roads
The Tour DeRiver is a 4 week Tour which is a great way to get some racing in over winter. Next week is at Lindenow with more info available from Bairnsdale and Riviera club website

I took a few pics today at the Sprint point both Sprint No. 1 and Sprint No. 2 and unfortunately missed the final sprint for the win, but all results are available from the BRCC website.

A grade - The second half of A grade sprinting.
The race was well organised by the BRCC club and Katrina East showed her race director skills along with her father John.
