The Nowra Velo Club resumed criterium racing on the Albatross Aviation Tech Park on the weekend with the A grade win going to West Australian rider Luke Bate.
Jason Spence took the B grade win after a long solo effort and mountain bike racer Dallas Warner displayed speed to win C grade in a sprint finish.
Amy Mottram won the D grade race after finishing second in her two previous events.
The A grade race finished with a 10-strong bunch racing into the final lap together. Race winner Luke Bate had made two earlier attempts to ride to a solo win but was dragged back to the bunch each time.
Brooklyn Henry was his usual aggressive self as he chased the other riders' moves and attacked the bunch at random while Jade Colligan was testing her form after a deserved break from racing, with several attacks.
Wells moved rapidly from the back of the field to be in second position at the bell but Bate and Coghlan were ahead of him over the line.
Troy Whittington was fourth ahead of Shane Wood, Richard Vitiello, Adam Rourke, Henry, Mick Berriman, Colligan and Mark Williams.
The outstanding ride of the day came from Jason Spence and his B grade win.
Spence was aggressive early and his first escape from the bunch was with Josh Henry.
Chased down by the bunch, Spence blasted away again to a solo lead but he had over 10 minutes of racing ahead of him. The chasing bunch almost had him back and then they faded away again and Spence was into the final run to the line with a good lead and a win by the length of the straight.
Ben Wallis took second in the sprint for the placings ahead of Godfrey Green, Steve Gendek, Henry, Coby Muir, Tim Devlin and Aaron Lauder.
Dave Gray raced to an almost dangerous lead at halfway in C grade and Brad Oaten chased across the gap and joined the move.
But they were not allowed to go any further as Bill Stahlhut and Ian Kielly led the chase.
They had a compact group of six into the final lap and that mountain biker was faster in the finish than anticipated.
Warner won by three lengths with Adrian McMillan taking second away from Oaten by a half wheel margin. Kielly was fourth ahead of Gray and Stahlhut.
Amy Mottram led Steve Daley into the finish straight in D grade and Daley was in the box seat but Mottram blasted up to the line for the win by three lengths.
Daley hung on for second as both Liam Wallis and Bruce Jenkins pushed him all the way to the line with Zara Jobson and Jamie Overton next to finish.
Next Sunday the Nowra Velo Club returns to road racing with the George Johnson Memorial being held on Braidwood Road over the 53-kilometre course.
The Bomaderry Vet Hospital/Coffeeliscious team are the rostered officials for this event that will start from Wugan Street at 8.30am.
