2019 Eric Hawkins Memorial Race Sat 24th Aug


A big thank you to Troy Hawkins, for supporting this race in memory of his father Eric. Troy has once again been very generous donating $500 cash for First place and excellent trophies for the first three across the line. The last few years have been a terrific race to watch, with nail biting finishes.

Eric Hawkins was a long time Hamilton rider with many great achievements who sadly passed away in 2014. 
Eric found himself on the podium at State and National levels riding as a Pro, He developed himself a reputation as a hard core madison rider on the track. Eric was a member of the the Caboolture Pro Club Committee for many years until the club eventually folded in 1982. The following year was when Eric and his youngest son Troy joined the Hamilton Wheelers. Eric was a valued and respected cyclist amongst his peers and took every opportunity to teach his son the way of the road and track. He competed in numerous team time trials and open races representing Hamilton Wheelers winning a swag of club championship medals. Eric continued to ride as a recreational cyclist until 2002.

We are having racing for other grades beforehand with the Memorial race starting at 9:45am. It's a longer 75 minute criterium with two $50 primes in there as well. We hope you can make it!
