Round 2 of the 2012 Casey-Bass Coast HPV Series was held at Wonthaggi on Saturday 24th through to Sunday 25th of March. With forecasts of ‘traditional’ Wonthaggi weather of rain and high winds, it was known that riders and their crews were in for a tough and exciting weekend of racing. Teams began arriving on Friday afternoon and early evening for scrutineering and setting up camp and the weather began to settle in with fierce, wild winds and heavy rain.
Event Report: Record breaking Wonthaggi 24 hour (with video)
Thankfully, the rain fell mainly on the Friday and 88 teams were able to successfully compete in a record breaking edition of the Wonthaggi Human Powered Grand Prix, our new writer Katie Harris was there.
Some teams woke up on Saturday morning to destroyed tents and were forced to find alternative accommodation. However, the remainder of the weekend saw overcast skies, with much cooler and pleasant conditions for the riders compared to scorching heat we were provided with at Casey Fields for Round One!
