The final hundred metres were the worst. In obscene crosswinds, descending a sweeping bend, the front wheel jolted horridly with each roaring gust. Cycling up Kosciuszko Road, on this day, had been a bad idea.
In 2018, Penrith Cycling Club’s Sydney Road Titles incorporated the Country and Metropolitan Road Championships. An exciting finish to the U23 race capped off a fantastic day’s racing in gale-force winds.
This is my report from one of the B-Grade races held as part of Round 2 of the Manly Warringah Cycle Club KOM Financial Advice West Head Road Race. Includes video commentary of the final 2km.
