Cy­cle of suc­cess a show of keen focus

With the run­ning of the State Cri­terium Cham­pi­onship on Sun­day, the num­bers were down for Peel District Cy­cling Club’s Time Trial at Hopeland, with sev­eral reg­u­lars choos­ing to ride in the State ti­tles.

But not Michelle McLin­tock, who ar­rived early to se­cure the first start­ing spot and then rode the 16km cir­cuit in a very im­pres­sive 23min. 57sec. for third-fastest time of the day.

McLin­tock then headed to Bayswa­ter and backed up to win the 30-39 Masters Women’s State ti­tle.

Len­non McLin­tock was the fastest rider on the day in 21:44, while Steve Knight rode 22:48 to be the sec­ond-fastest rider.

McKen­zie Wil­lis, rac­ing in her first time trial, was the un­luck­i­est rider of the day af­ter two punc­tures ended her race af­ter 3.5km.

A cri­terium at Alu­mina Way, Rock­ing­ham will be run on Sun­day, with the next time trial at Hopeland early in the new year.
