Riders on track
A grey sky threatening rain and a Nor'west
wind greeted riders for the first competitive
track night of the season for Bike Manawatu.
The outstanding turnout of 45 riders plus
supporters helped to fire up the energy levels.
The programme was adjusted as the threat
of rain could not be ignored and the longer
handicap races moved ahead of the scheduled
one-lap scratch races.
The race of the night was provided by the
ladies in the six-lap handicap event. The
skills of the handicapper were tested as he
had riders ranging from world and national
champions to absolute first timers.
Scratch riders Megan Blatchford and Kate
Stewart gave limit riders Renee Wadsworth
and Toni Loveridge 300 metres in the
2400-metre race. The scratch riders started
aggressively as they tried to reel in the other
five riders as quickly as possible. The other
riders calmly got into their work and
Wadsworth was able to maintain her margin
into lap four of the six-lap race.
The scratch riders joined the middle group-
ing with two laps to go and joined the train to
gather in Renee, which they did with a little
over a lap to go. Sharon Hollenstein and
Tegan Rolfe kicked on with scratch rider
Blatchford to finish first, second and third,
and a gallant Wadsworth held on for fourth.
Stewart took up the fifth position.
Senior rider of the night was awarded to
Matiu Kaihau due to his dominance of the
men's races and the junior rider of the night
was Michaela Drummond for an outstanding
performance on the bike. While she failed to
catch Emily Shearman in the handicap race
her effort was an illustration of her class.
