The CATS Cycling Club congratulates all its riders who took on the challenging Cunningham Classic road race on August 4. Once again CATS subsidised the bus to the Classic taking riders from the Gold Coast irrespective of their club affiliation.
Best performer on the day was Brian Meade who took out 1st place in the Masters D division. Brian also won the Most Impressive Rider award based on his courageous break over 35 kilometres after the King of the Mountain climb.
Other quality performances came from Michael Gough who finished 2nd in the Masters C division, Juan Navarrette who finished 4th in Masters B. Lee Masters was impressive in winning the King of the Mountain climb in Elite B.
Our women riders were once again impressive. Michaela Fischer is showing the benefits of her increased training this year and participation in the Team Series with the CATS team by finishing 4th in Masters C and being the 1st female rider over the line. Once again Katrin Garfoot impressed by finishing 1st woman rider in Masters B.
Our best wishes go to Robb Smith in Masters B who crashed a few kilometres from the finish line sustaining a shoulder injury.
