Merry Christmas-There’s always room at the NBC Inn!

I want to personally thank you for making our club such as success in 2013. Your club now has over 110 financial members. As the club continues to grow, we don't want to forget our founding members and what they want from the club.
The club is unique in its attempts to welcome riders of all abilities, and offer recreational, social and competitive riding. We welcome your feedback and talents to ensure we have happy members!

With the majority of our members being migrants from other countries or from interstate, we can’t replace your extended family, but we hope we hope to share some festive and social times with you. Why not form some new Christmas traditions with your extended cycling family? Stuart Marr has organized a Boxing Day ride from Jindalee (6.00am) to Trigg. Mark Watts has organized a 6.15am Friday ride from Jindalee to Fremantle. Friday night Daz Hall is the DJ at Chippys on the Jindalee foreshore. Saturday is the Cheeky gang ride. Saturday Night 28/12/13, back at Chippys, an organisers committee (fixies optional) is gathering to plan for the Yanchep National Park Challenge (put that in your diary-2/2/14). Sunday is our regular club ride. Why not post a ride or catch up yourself? Find and post here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/NorthernBeachesCyclingClub/

I can genuinely say we are one of the most recognizable clubs in WA and not just for our great lime green kit. From Kalgoorlie, to Margaret River and Perth, we get compliments on the positive energy we have brought to cycling in WA.
Some milestones from 2013 include
•    Conducting a very successful first race event, the Yanchep National Park Challenge.
•    Engaging The City of Wanneroo, Water Corp, and Lendlease in the Alkimos Bike Town proposal, which aims to provide infrastructure for all level of recreational and competitive cycling, (including a Criterium course and 5km road circuit).
•    Becoming one of the pillar clubs in the rebuilding of Cycling WA, and shaping the direction of cycling in this state.
•    Engaging the talents of its members to manage the diversity of the club, including finances, ride organization, and event management.
•    Welcoming the continuing major sponsorship of ABC Blinds
•    Welcoming the major sponsorship of Alkimos Beach Estate
•    Commencement of both a NBC women’s group and a Youth Development Squad.
In 2014 we plan to
•    Continue in providing fun, friendly, social rides for all abilities.
•    Drink coffee and chat
•    Conduct the Yanchep National Park Challenge on 2/2/14
•    Provide the loudest supporter base for our riders competing in events
•    Aim to have a club house by mid 2014
•    Drink more coffee.
•    Explore cycling interests with a mountain bike group and Fixie group.
We encourage our members to explore cycling events across the State. The club has a focus on charity rides, the BWA cyclosportif events, the 3-5 dam challenges, together with the Tour of Pemberton, Goldfields Tour, and Tour of Margaret River. We also are considering a cycling-themed weekend in Margaret River, where you can ride as little or as much as you like (including the 24 hour delirium event).
Along with your feedback, and your continued financial membership, we ask that every member put back into the club, such as; volunteering time, helping the smooth running of group rides, adding to the services on offer from the club, or tracking down sponsorship monies.
May you have a relaxing Christmas break, and I look forward to seeing you safe on our roads in 2014.

Northern Beaches Cycling Club (NBC) continues to challenge more established clubs in the Summer Criterium series. NBC was well represented in the juniors with Shawn Wright, Curtis Atkinson, Barnie Wolfe, Abdullah Bayatly, and Joshua Lewis lining up in E grade.  Abdullah came 2nd in Under 15 age group, Shawn Wright 1st in Under 13 and Curtis Atkinson (8) had a hotly contested duel finish 2nd in Under 11. 

 NBC blended youth with experience with 5 riders in D grade, David Self, Chris Howard, Jacob wood (16), Brendan Atkinson and James Wolfe.  

From the off the average pace was fast, averaging well over 36kmph through the 15km of racing.  With the lead changing constantly and no thinning out of the pack it was all on the last lap before things heated up.  All NBC riders performed well, with a third place bagged by James Wolfe.

Zac French represented the club in C grade  on his own,  Despite having no team, only one race under his belt, and a nearly full field of over 50 riders,  Zac held his position near the front.  Throughout he looked at ease and on target for a good finish.  Boxed-in in the last lap, Zac forced his way to the sprint finish for 5th behind the impressive 3rd place by local junior Jayden Waters.

B grade saw Connor Beadsmore out for revenge, having been dropped in his last outing.  The 'wild-card' Ricky Andrews rode in his first Bentley criterium.  The pace once more was blistering but the group stayed together with both Connor (racing for GDT Flanders) and Ricky looking well placed in the field and being cheered on by the boisterous NBC cheer squad. Unfortunately both were caught behind a last corner crash and missed the opportunity for the sprint finish.  

  Next race is the 5th of January where we hope to see another great turnout.  NBC  welcomes riders of all ages for recreational or competitive cycling.

Race Report for NBCC Sunday 14th December 2013 Technology Park-Smashfest Criterium Series

As the Mercury rose on an already warm Sunday morning, the first round of races in the 2013/14 Smashfest Criterium series, got into full swing.  Four races over the holiday season, grades for everyone, active club competitive riding, the scene is set for high thrills and spills over the Crit season.  All that is required is:

1.    A bike (no problem, check)
2.    A number (too easy, $15 and you are off, check)
3.    Legs like pistons forged from pure steel (er, well maybe, ish)
4.    Lungs like V8’s (Prius maybe?)
5.    Nerves like a Tibetan Monk (that NBCC marquee is looking lonely, Ill be over there)

In all seriousness, if you are looking for an introduction in to club racing and fancy testing your metal, you can not go wrong by entering into an event like this.  Wonderfully hosted by Roues Chaudes CC, the rider can enter in grade E to A with E starting off doing 15 minutes of laps followed by two more laps. 

The circuit is opposite Curtin University on the Technology Park circuit.  Laps are only about 1km long with next to no gradient.  An ideal safe environment to forge any NBCC newbie from casual Sunday rider to Nitro powered Tour de France contender (maybe).

A selection of adult club members attended the first meet with Connor Beardsmore, David Self, Zac French, Neil Foster and the ever popular with the ladies, cavalier, Jimmy Wolfe pulling on the Green for eternal glory.

Youth were very well represented with, Shawn Wright, Mathew Lewis, Nathan Venter, Jacob Wood, and Curtis Atkinson. E grade was split in to a senior junior and junior junior and staggered at the start.  All put in solid performance with Curtis Atkinson the stand out, staying on the drops, not backing off even when left behind.  Even the commentators marveled at his dogged head down style. One to watch in the future.  Shawn Wright notably performed well in his group finishing 4th despite mechanical issues.

D grade saw David self, Jimmy Wolfe and the young Jacob Wood cut his teeth in his first ever event.  If there were any reservations or doubt or worries by Jacob, they were firmly put to bed by a solid performance.  Finishing 5th with a pack of more experienced PIH seniors behind him it was a performance that will only improve. 

Second place was claimed by Wolfe, who wound it on at the last minute to take second by a wheel.  When interviewed by the world press later, he could only explain his watery eyes as A) dust off the hot circuit or B) pride at Jacob’s efforts.  Self, finished with the leaders and will be out for a podium next week I’m sure.

C grade is where it all got serious.  With many solo B graders bumped down to C, 40 plus riders made for a fast and exciting race.  The pace from the off was intense, with both Foster and French contending with the leaders.  Foster’s experience showed, as he seemed at ease throughout, moving with the lead group. French performed ahead of his young years and demonstrated that he has plenty yet to give in the near future.  Both finished well, with NBCC clearly making an impression on the day.

Connor Beardsmore although representing GTD Flanders in B grade had not forgotten where he came from.  NBCC support was huge for what looked a daunting race.  Due to the now spiraling heat, 5 mins was taken off the race time (much to the delight of the riders).  Connor put in maximum effort throughout the race, which averaged 40 plus km/h the whole race!  Once you are lapped you are out and Connor was one of the last of GDT Flanders to be eliminated after 25mins of frighteningly fast paced riding. 

All riders surpassed themselves that day with members shouting support from the route.  Riders were overheard to say that it was a huge lift to hear NBCC shouting at the sidelines.  A big thank you to the parents/wives/girlfriends etc. who braved a hot day to cheer the Green shirted (and Red Connor) riders on that day.  Although it might seem daunting, racing and testing your legs against others, can be the summit of amatuer riding.  If you have been thinking about it, go on, have a go, it won’t hurt, much.

Next round is on Sunday 22nd December at Technology Park.  Bring money, balls of steel and spare lungs.

Tour of Margaret River 2013

The comments from Facebook say it all.

Just back from the TOMR. A fantastic long weekend of racing….against some of the best riders in WA” Tim James

“Graham and I had a wonderful time. Loved being part of a fantastic club” Fiona Purdie.

“Great Weekend of racing, socialising and laughing had by all NBCC members in Margaret River….made me proud to be a member of NBCC” Richard Stokes.

“A really great weekend and what a great bunch of people. It was a great pleasure to support you all and will do it again at the drop of a hat” Rowland Holden.

“Would love to have another team next year for others who have not raced before” Edward Rose.

“Thanks to you all for a great weekend away” Stuart Marr

“I think we proved it possible to be competitive without taking it too seriously” Andy Brown

Each and every NBCC rider approached the racing with a great attitude, gave it their all and came away with a smile.” Greg Pengelly

“It was a great team and we achieved what we set out to do! Finish!” Toni Kerr

“Fab bunch of people, haven’t laughed that much in…forever” Rachel Hippolyte

“Give it a go next year, you won’t be disappointed” Mick Dowling

“Pass the ping pong ball”  Andy Otter

NBC had its first foray at the Tour of Margaret River, with 2 men’s teams, one mixed and one women’s team. The accommodation for most members was the Shed, located at Margaret River Venison Farm.  The deer cleverly kept their distance for the weekend.

Friday morning was spent on a reconnaissance ride to the Start/finish area and the route for stage 1, interrupted by a caffeine stop in Cowaramup.  After several failed attempts to herd NBC members to one spot for registrations we still managed to register everyone. Back at the Shed there was a sudden hive of activity as bikes were prepared, numbers pinned to Jerseys and transponders attached to bikes. With little pre-training, teams were left to devise their own team tactics.

The wisest strategy was a warm up practice lap, as team tactics quickly disintegrated, and quick re-thinks resulted in us looking more like we knew what were doing by the start of the Stage 1 Team Time Trial.  Pre-race, we thought it wisest to finish with the slowest rider in each team, to ensure we would all be competitive when were seeded into categories for the remaining 3 races. Once the Team Time Trial started however, everyone’s competitive nature kicked in and everyone pushed for the best possible time. Even when team members hung back to support a rider, they were politely (and impolitely) told to push on without them.

We anxiously watched as live results of times came through. With only 23 seconds separating our top 2 teams over the 25km course, The Espressos and Macchiatos finished 26th and 30th and qualified for Category 2. The Ladies team (Affogatos), who previously asserted they were not in it to race, finished 54th.  The mixed team, in which Rachel Hippolyte spent most of her time looking over her shoulder wondering why the men couldn't keep up, finished 49th  for a Category 4 placement.  The feature of the racing was the huge and loud cheer squad for NBC. It was absolutely uplifting to hear and see the support from the lime green team.

With racing over for the day, it was time for the more serious business of socialising. I made a reasoned Presidential decree to re-gather at the Shed and go to the aptly named, Cheeky Monkey Brewery. By the time I got back to the Shed, everyone had scattered to the 3 winds…the fourth being the Cheeky Monkey.  Somehow it all worked out and we ended up at the Settlers Tavern in Margaret River. Busy, for good reason, with prompt, and really good hearty, food and beer. Grateful to our Skippers, we made it back to the Shed. While some turned in early, others kicked on to the early hours, with varying definitions of bedclothes.

Saturday morning came too early for many as we prepared for two races for the day. The first was a 2-lap 32.6km ‘lumpy’ course. In category 2, Stephen McNeilly, who never appears to be sprinting, came from 5 bike lengths behind at the 200-metre mark to WIN! An incredibly proud moment for everyone. (He may have got a few man-hugs). Tim James was well placed also but hemmed in to finish 9th. Lewis Purcell, Andy Brown, Richard Langston, Ricky Andrews, Martin Lear, Greg Pengelly, Marthinus Kemp and Connor Beardsmore all finished in the pack with an average speed of 40.9kmph.

The Ladies team, having never raced before, soon got caught up in the atmosphere. While a breakaway formed they held their own in the peloton.  In the mixed team, the ‘lumpy bits’ sorted out most of the boys before the finish. In her first ever group race and with a basic instruction of ‘stay near the front and out of trouble’ Rachel Hippolyte finished 15th in a bunch finish. Not bad considering Jack Bobridge and Phil Anderson took 1st and 2nd.

The 3rd stage was on a tighter, flatter 8 lap, 30km course. The Ladies again pushed for their Personal Bests, with Riana Rose, Wilna Kemp and Fiona Purdie working together and Toni Kerr, Kym Carr and Julia Pangbourn in a second group.

The mixed team fared better on their flatter third stage, Rachel finishing 14th, Mick Dowling 20th, Stuart Marr 24th.  Richard Stokes after an initial breakaway for a photo opportunity for the NBC kit, dropped off. Andy Otter did his utmost to draft Chris Howard, only to find that he was down by 5 minutes due to a puncture.

The 2 men’s teams really raised the bar in their race. In a pack finish, only stretched out by the wisdom of Anthony Giacoppo, Stephen McNeilly got on the podium again for third. Connor Beardsmore placed 7th, Tim James 10th, Lewis Purcell 14th, Andy Brown 18th, Ricky Andrews 23rd, Marthinus Kemp 26th.  It was a real highlight for us when Anthony Giacoppo visited our marquee after the race.

After all the emotions, exertions and deprived sleep, we opted for a 5pm dinner at the Settlers Tavern again. A much more restrained evening was had, and everyone was tucked away in bed by 9.30pm.

We awoke Sunday morning with a renewed vigor and purpose. After a lot of wheel swapping and mysterious spontaneous punctures, we lined up for the final 75km road race along the picturesque Caves Road.  A winery was an appropriate and scenic start point for the race. It was a hard and hot day on the road, particularly if you got dropped from the peloton. It was a huge personal achievement just to finish the race, particlalry with a 2.5km hill climb finish.

The club was incredibly proud when Ricky Andrews took 2nd place on a very tough finish. Stephen McNeilly, with a dodgy Di2, finished 5th, Lewis Purcell 12th, Greg Pengelly 16th, Connor Beardsmore 25th, Martin Lear 29th. Riana Rose rose up through the women’s category to finish 31st.  Rachel Hippolyte finished 18th in Category 4, and Stuart Marr defied gravity to finish 25th in category 4.

 Rachel Hippolyte, competing in her first races, rubbed shoulders with Phil Anderson and finished 3rd overall in the Women’s Green Jersey Category.  With a 1st, 3rd and 5th, Stephen McNeilly was consistently the best category 2 rider in the Tour.  Ricky Andrews and Connor Beardsmore performed on heavy bikes with compact cranks. They are both raw, young talent whom I’m sure gained invaluable experience from the weekend’s racing (as did we all).  It's a joy to watch as they start to realize just how damn good they are.

The standout performances in the Tour of Margaret River was that by the support crew, led by Rowland Holden (driving all over the region to source the best recovery foods, and transport bikes and bodies), Edward Rose (including offering orange juice as incentives whilst wielding a GoPro on a stick), Graham Purdie and Bruce Carr. A special thank you to Brendon and Kathryn Morrison and family for making our social club so welcome at the Tour Margaret River. If we haven’t permanently blocked the plumbing I am hoping we will get invited again.

What is impossible to convey in words is the club spirit of each and every person who attended. Everyone pitched in to make it a fun, social weekend.  Everyone, support crew included, deserves to be up on the podium.

Pickering Brook Series and the State Junior Road Championship 25/8/13

Congratulations to all participants! Well done to Connor Beardsmore and James Wolfe for the 1-2 double for the E Grade 3 race series points. Also, despite a mechanical and fall in the Road Race today, Neil Foster claimed 2nd overall in D grade behind Midland CC rider Wayne Deany.  For many club members, it was their first go at competitive cycling. I know it won't be their last. Thanks for making NBC a real presence out there!
