18Sep2020

The first two rounds of the 2020 Towards Zero Victorian Junior Road Series (Virtual) are in the books with riders from all age groups taking on courses from the Tour of Ararat and Tour of Castlemaine last weekend. 

Round one and two saw riders take on the Moyston and Harcourt courses of the Tour of Ararat and Castlemaine. In the JB11 and JG13 categories Carnegie Caulfield’s Ewan Brown (14:55) and Cycling Victoria’s Mikayla Delardes (31:53) took the max points. The pair also took the 25 points in round two. 

In the JB13 Category Ballarat/Sebastopol’s Alistair Forsyth finished in 20min 59sec to gain the first 25 points of the series beating Brunswick’s Maxx Nuspan (24:24) and Blackburn’s Hayden Vimpani (24:26). The same trio finished in the same order in Sunday’s round two race, giving Forsyth the early lead in the overall standings. 

For the Under 15 categories, Georgia Gardiner (Jindabyne CC) finished with a time of 58min 04sec, she finished ahead of the Bendigo CC pairing of Milana Freer (1h00:38) and Haylee Jack (1h04:37). For the boys it was James Forsyth (Ballarat/Sebastopol CC) finishing in 59min 06sec, narrowly edging out Blackburn’s Hamish Clarkson (59:07) and Seymour Broadford rider Finbar O’Sullivan (59:07). 

Gardiner (1h09:01) and Jack (1h14:38) took the top two spots in Sunday’s race for the Under 15 girls while Ballarat/Sebatopol’s Benjamin Meakin (1h02:37) finished ahead of Clarkson (1h02:38) and Forsyth (1h02:38)

Talia Appleton (Mansfield Mt Buller CC) ended round one with a time of 1h 38:34min to collect the 25 points in the JW17 category with Brunswick’s Ava Giramondo (1h38:36) and Carnegie Caulfield’s Mia Williams (1h39:04) rounding out the top three. In the boys division, Logan Taplin (Hawthorn CC) completed the course in 1h 16:53min for the max points while Geelong’s Cohen Jessen (1h18:01) and Blackburn’s Tarun Cook (1h18:48) not far behind. 

In round two it was Giramondo taking first place with a time of 1h 40:00min only just beating Appleton (1h40:00) while Williams (1h41:32) claimed 3rd place again. Logan Taplin won round two to claim max points again with Carnegie Caulfield’s Julian Davey and Cohen Jessen (Geelong CC) rounding out the top three.
