One school term nearly done and we’ve seen three great events to kick off 2011.
Saturday February 26 saw the start of the 2011 Casey-Bass Coast HPV Series at Casey Fields in Cranbourne. The early morning fog cleared, and left us with a bright, wind-less sunny day. As most people know this is not normally the case at Casey but we were not going to complain about the perfect conditions for racing!

2011 Bendigo Bank & Cartridge World HPV Challenge
A record sixty riders took to the Tom Flood velodrome as part of the Bendigo International Madison Carnival. The events, held in a similar format to a track cyclingÕs ÔIndividual PursuitÕ, provide a great chance for riders to race explosively rather than focus on endurance.

Wonthaggi Human Powered Grand Prix
The first 24-hour event on the calendar, the Wonthaggi Human Powered Grand Prix, was held over the weekend of the 18th to 20th of March, 2011.
A record number of entrants lined up in the 12th year of competition at this famed Wonthaggi event. Race day saw weary eyes and bleak overcast skies welcoming race teams, but the race saw some fast and smooth racing.
Words by Russell Nankervis, Rider & Student, Bendigo Senior SC
