The 2019/20 Dubbo Cycle Club, Club Championships are well under way with only the Individual Pursuit round left to be decided. As NSW Cycling Club of the year the Dubbo Club Championships are a much coveted event.
In Division 1 Danny Barber has managed an undefeated run to date taking out the Pointscore, Time Trial, Sprint and Scratch races.
He has been pushed all the way, with Australian masters sprint champion Jason Farr taking a flyer in the scratch race, only to be caught on the line after a lap chase by Barber.
It will be a difficult task for Barber to take the clean sweep in Division 1 with endurance specialists Dylan Eather and Tim Hines sure to feature well in the individual pursuit.
Division 2 saw Sam Fitzgerald consistently near the top, winning the Sprint and the Time Trial. Chris Richards took out the scratch race while finishing in second place in the Time Trial, Sprint and Pointscore. Young NSW representative Trent Hines took out the Division 2 [oint score.
Multiple National Champion, Haylee Fuller, will be favourite going into the Individual Pursuit.
Similar to Division 1, Division 3 has seen Neil Diamond staying undefeated in the four events to date.
He is sure to be pushed in the upcoming Individual Pursuit by National Masters champion Catherine Fuller and long-distance specialist Craig Grainger.
Ben Obrien has also managed to take second place in every event with Jeff Sargent featuring in a couple of third places.
Division 4 is a very closely fought contest. Georgia Farr has come into her own in the endurance categories, winning the Pointscore and Scratch races, while Jason Canobie has taken out his favoured Sprint and Time Trial events.
In what was a mammoth effort, 13-year-old Makayla Fuller recorded the third fastest initial 100m time in the club when competing in the Time Trial.
When considering the calibre of riders within Dubbo Club this will mark her as one to watch in the sprint events over the coming representative season.
Emily Hines continues to dominate the u13 category, taking the win in all events conducted. Hines will go into the upcoming Junior State Championships, to be held in Dubbo, as one to watch. Close on her heals are fellow u13 riders Ella Mann, Jessica Fuller and Lachlan Farr who have shared positions on the podium with Hines.
Cooper Farr has taken out all u11 events and continues to put in the hard work on the track. Close behind is Jarryd Fuller with William Tanswell, new to racing, keeping them both honest.
