The final stage of the Tour of Wellington was run today by Welington Cycling Club and it was another tough day on the bike. The weather played a large part being quite windy and although there was repreive from the wind during stages of the race, it made things tough.
Easy course, just out and back but with hills, wind and people trying to bust the bunches up, the race presented with challenges.
Then there was Grants cakes, and at presentations at Wa De Lock, some yummy pizzas..........
Congratulations to Danny Gafa (LCCC), Lachlan Thompson (BRCC) and Damien Crozier (BRCC), for winning A, B & C grades respectively....
Well done to Grant Smith and a well oiled group of helpers who made the race the success it was.
