For those who haven’t competed at the VVCC South Pacific Championship over Easter it’s one to put down in your calendar for next year.

The event, was again, extremely well run and you get to race against some of the best age group riders in the state over 4 disciplines then back up for a Handicap on the Monday if you haven’t already had your fill of racing.

The races are very competitive but the friendly atmosphere after the race and at the presentations each evening are a big part of the attraction.

Congratulations and thanks to the event organisers, the spectators for creating a great atmosphere, the people of Maryborough for their hospitality and to the competitors for the friendly, tough and safe racing.

GSCC was well represented again this year with some highlights covered below (thanks as always to Di Howden for the majority of the photo’s).
