Mark Astley has taken a win in the SCUM Dusk to Dark three-hour mountain bike race on the Coodoo circuit near Forrest Road where another NVC rider Geoff Lockhart was also in the field.

Jade Colligan has placed sixth in the under 23 women’s Oceania individual time trial championship at Canberra and Adam Rourke has finished fourth in the Australian Master division 5 points championship on the Dunc Gray velodrome at Bankstown.

Colligan was the second placed Australian rider in her Oceania championship that featured the New Zealand women’s national team. These riders filled the positions from second to fifth.

Rourke was back at the velodrome to chase some national masters glory following a successful comeback at the NSW masters titles last month. Rourke made the vital break in the points championship but the legs were not quite sharp enough to score a medal.

Aaron Coghlan intends racing as many state and interstate races as possible this year and after an outstanding display at the East Gippsland tour he was in the mix at the Odd Spoke classic at Eastern Creek last week.

Coghlan was in the elite A grade field and as a solo rider he was not able to feature in the top paid positions.

The Nowra Velo Club returns to local road racing next Sunday with a 42 kilometres handicap race from Wugan Street in the Albatross Aviation Tech Park at 8am.

The NVC’s mountain championships is on April 2 with a timed ascent of Woodhill Mountain.
