Our 2017 Super
Sprint Series got underway on Sunday in perfect conditions. It was
great to welcome our Come & Tri participants and good to hear we will
be getting some new members in the future as all enjoyed our unique club
A big thank you to Lucas
Hayden who took to RDing like a duck to water and did an
awesome job in overseeing this event for us. It was Lucas' first time
as volunteer race director, and he received lots of help and encouragement
as do all our RDs.
Our amazing volunteers also included Moira
Wigley and Emily
Moran on registration, ably assisted by Claire Labowitch
Duncan shopped and chopped our post race refreshments, Elliott Bolitho
manned hot corner for us and Moz
Bronjes was on hand for technical duties. Thanks
Wall we got those results out in super quick time.
Thank you! We also appreciated the efforts of everyone who
helped set up and pack away. We were done and dusted and sipping
lattes by 9am!!

1. Please be aware that Darwin Cycling Club have athletes training
for National Track Championships at the Velodrome.
2. Their main session is currently Tuesday evenings from 4:30pm
onwards, so if using the velodrome, we'd suggest you avoid that time.
1. There are a few Roster spots to be filled for our upcoming events.
We really would like to get those sorted asap. Take a look at
and let us know where you can help. We do ask that all members
volunteer to do a Roster duty at least once each season.
2. Hearing the number of members heading for Busso 70.3 in December
has risen over the past couple of weeks.
3. Got a couple of verbal Dag of the Year nominations from the
weekend. Email them in so we have them on file. Confidentiality
Bament is among the Darwinites heading for the Sydney
Marathon this weekend. Good luck!
5. Seems we have heaps heading over for the Tour de Timor starting
next week. Stay upright you all, and enjoy!
7. On drafting .... we know our course is a little tight, that
traffic impends the flow at times, that there are a couple of sharp turns
and speed bumps ... but ... how about we try and keep Super Sprint #2
draft free - safety and fairness are the aims here.
8. Our co-ordinator Rena
Walker put on a swim run activity for our juniors on Sunday
and they had a ball. Thanks also to Tatiane
Kelly for helping out. Our next junior event takes
place on 15 Oct 2017, pop it in your calendars.
