Congratulations from all of us at ICC, its nice to see all your hard work has been recognised.
The annual 2014 Ken Dinnerville Race was won by James Bernard from Dulwich Hill cycle club yesterday in awesome summery conditions. Illawarra managed to get three members on to the finishers podium Luke Walshie 5th, Matt Hennessy 7th and Peter Vessel 9th.
The fastest time home was Troy Herfros in 2:33:28 that's going at an average speed of 40kmph an amazing effort by Troy from the Goulburn Cycle Club. The first female home went to Amy Vesty from Dulwich Hill rider in 2:55:18.
It was a tough day in the saddle with a headwind as they left the Illawarra Christian School on Calderwood Road heading straight up Marshal Mount Hill aka (Dinnerville Hill)which they had to complete four times during the race. The hill started sorting out the bunches from the gecko seeing numerous riders falling behind their groups with nothing left in the tank to hang on. This making the Hill the best vantage point for spectators. "Everyone would cheer the riders on to pick it up and stay attached to their bunch" said Jana Hawes who was sitting on the hill during the race. "It was really fun to watch, the atmosphere was excellent, we even had the coffee van come" said Jana.
Illawarra Cycle Club would just like to thank all those behind the scene helpers that made the event run smoothly, we also wish to congratulate all the riders that entered. We hope to see you all again next year for a bigger and better Dinnerville event.
