Rocky riders dominate Townsville Cup on weekend
AS EXPECTED, the 17-strong contingent of riders from The Rocky Cycling Club posted impressive results at the Townsville Cup on the weekend.
And it couldn't get more impressive than in the combined Women's Open, under-17 and under-15 Betty Orrow Memorial.
The four-lap handicap was dominated by the Rocky girls.
Brooke Tucker won, followed by Emma Green in second with Brooke's sister Lara third.
"It was an incredible race to watch," club president Joe Adair said of the event.
"And for our Rocky riders to finish first, second and third and completely dominate the race was an exceptional result for the club."
In the juniors, Caden Ruff made it a clean sweep riding in the under-11 class. Ruff won all six of his races, many of them coming from behind on handicap.
"That was another exceptional effort," Adair said.
"In one event, Caden was on a three-lap handicap and he had to catch riders 250 metres in front of him in only three laps.
"He caught them and won.
"That was another great ride to watch."
Bailey Goltz finished second in the Open Men's Keirin, in only his first season in the senior ranks.
