The B2B (Blayney to Bathurst) Cyclo Sportif Challenge continues to grow, with organisers of the Blayney to Bathurst event stretched to the limit at last weekend's event. A record field of almost 1000 cyclists turned out at the Blayney start line to take on the 110km long course and 70km short course challenge. Both courses ended with a gut-busting effort up Bathurst famous Mt Panorama Motor racing Circuit.
The open men's long course race was dominated by Drapac-Porsche and FRF/NSWIS riders, with the latter's Peter Mcdonald taking line honours from Drapac-Porsche's Robbie Williams. Meanwhile in the women's category, rising star Katie Jones of North Sydney took honours from Commonwealth Games triathete Heather Evans, and defending Champion Judith May.
The event also incorporated the New South Wales Hillclimb Championships, which was also taken out by Peter Mcdonald in a record-setting climb up 'The Mountain'.
