Photos from the 2011 Bike Week Cup are in the Galleries section. Who was this rider making them suffer in C Grade? He makes beards look PRO!

Alberto goes climbing

No not that one! No stories about contaminated meat, doping inquiries or ASO bans here...this is about the other Alberto. Our own Alberto Monte Rego recently went down to race the Mt Baw Baw classic which is a very tough race. Alberto did really well finishing 4th in Masters 4. Partner Sandra also travelled down to act as DS and here is her report of the race.

Some info about the race including the SBS Cycling Central recap is here.

Our Club (and State) Handicapper Terry Bourne has asked our riders to please obtain a Race Grade via the CQ website prior to entering an open event for the first time. Please read this message on the CQ website.

Also if you have not raced with HPRW at our regular races please talk to Terry before entering so he can advise a suitable grading - it is not up to the rider to decide which grade to enter.

This will make Terry a very happy man!
