Volunteer Roster - Nominate before your next race
 

This is a reminder for Hamilton Members about our Volunteering Roster.


All racing members (including riders who are members of more than one club) are required to assist with the running of a race just once per season (November through October). It's a great way to give something back to the sport and your club, and learn about what makes racing happen each week.

Our policy is that after racing twice, you must then nominate a date for assisting, otherwise your entry may be refused. We would like to avoid a situation where racing has to be cancelled or entries refunded or refused, so please jump on the website and nominate a date before your next race. You register via the website calendar, just find an event that requires volunteers and put down your name. The system will email you with reminders.

If you want to check, the members grading list has highlighted riders who need to nominate with the number of races you've done and your nominated date so use that to check.

Also, fantastic ride by Jeremy Mahoney. He didn't get to mount the steps, but proved himself a very tough competitor. 👏

Further to the race results, Dan Wilson earned himself the overall QCRS Leader's Jersey for Masters A; finishing atop the leaderboard with 3 x 🥈s and a race win on Sunday!

Tsen Ren Bao and Jordan Mann also had a fantastic series, finishing 3rd overall in Elite B and Elite C, respectively. Ren finished the series with a🥈, 16th, 13th, and 4th, while Jordan chalked up a🥉, 16th, 4th, and 5th. Congratulations, boys. Very well deserved. 💪🥳

2021 Frank Papp Memorial Handicap Details Sat 26th June 12pm - POSTPONED


Sorry Everyone we have had to postpone this event due to low entry number and the threat of very poor weather. We will look for an alternative date possibly in October. All entries will be refunded in full.




Frank Papp was a club member who passed away in an accident while riding in 2011. Frank was the sort of bloke who made you feel like you'd known him for years, only a few minutes after meeting him and he is missed by all who knew and rode with him. Frank loved riding huge distances training for audax rides and Paris-Brest-Paris, so it's only fitting that our longest and hardest race of the year is held in his memory.
