The North Island College Criterium went off without a problem today as a great weather and volunteers showed up to help test the new course.
After lots of practise laps and sprints, and discussion, the course was reversed and modified to make the course safer due to sunlight concerns, and an angled corner.
Riders attending this free event were Mark and James Grant (who earlier in the day won the Junior TTT in Nanaimo), Steve Grant, Nigel Hutcheson, Ray Wagner, and Jeff Matell.
After all the practice laps Nigel, Ray, and Jeff decided they had LOTS of energy to race a 10minutes plus 3 laps criterium. After numerous attacks, counter-attacks, and getting tired, Jeff Matell took top honors as Ray and Nigel duked it out for 2nd and 3rd.
A BIG thanks to Ray, John Bernard, Hilary, and Trevor, and all the riders for helping to setup/takedown the event and all the feedback needed for this course to possibly be used in the 2012 race season!
