Riders on track A grey sky threatening rain and a Nor'west wind greeted riders for the first competitive track night of the season for Bike Manawatu. The outstanding turnout of 45 riders plus supporters helped to fire up the energy levels. The programme was adjusted as the threat of rain could not be ignored and the longer handicap races moved ahead of the scheduled one-lap scratch races. The race of the night was provided by the ladies in the six-lap handicap event. The skills of the handicapper were tested as he had riders ranging from world and national champions to absolute first timers. Scratch riders Megan Blatchford and Kate Stewart gave limit riders Renee Wadsworth and Toni Loveridge 300 metres in the 2400-metre race. The scratch riders started aggressively as they tried to reel in the other five riders as quickly as possible. The other riders calmly got into their work and Wadsworth was able to maintain her margin into lap four of the six-lap race. The scratch riders joined the middle group- ing with two laps to go and joined the train to gather in Renee, which they did with a little over a lap to go. Sharon Hollenstein and Tegan Rolfe kicked on with scratch rider Blatchford to finish first, second and third, and a gallant Wadsworth held on for fourth. Stewart took up the fifth position. Senior rider of the night was awarded to Matiu Kaihau due to his dominance of the men's races and the junior rider of the night was Michaela Drummond for an outstanding performance on the bike. While she failed to catch Emily Shearman in the handicap race her effort was an illustration of her class.
