The Nowra Velo Club will hold the final round of the Optus Series for 2019 next Sunday. This event will be a 42km handicap to be held on the Braidwood Road short course.
The Hanlon Windows team will go into this race as series leaders after a year of consistency from the team members while Hanlon's lead rider, Levi Johns, is the individual points leader with one race to go.
While the Hanlon team cannot be overtaken for the team win, the minor placings will need to be decided between Allen Price & Scarratts, Access Storage and Bomaderry Vet Hospital/Coffeeliscious.
The Access Storage team won the Optus Series in 2018.
Johns also has a clear for this final round with another from the Hanlon team being the only rider who can possibly topple Johns from the overall lead position.
Jason Spence will need to finish this race in first or second position with Johns not placing in the top 30 to be able to win.
Racing will start on Sunday at 8.30am from Wugan Street in the Albatross Aviation Tech Park with the Allen Price & Scarratts team as the rostered race officials.
October and November will then feature the club's championship events, the mountain championship, the road races across the grades and the criterium championships.
The club's individual time trial championship has already been run and won for 2019 and this went to Mitch Cunningham.
