The Byron Bay Cycle Club held its last race for the 2016 Spring Series on Sunday morning at the Byron industrial estate.
The forecast was for heavy rain, which was all around us and kept many of our competitors away; however, by some minor miracle Byron was spared the wet weather.
There was representation in all grades. B–grade, which is usually the largest, started with only five riders but with three of those fighting for the top spots in the overall race series it made for a fast and furious 45 mins with an average speed of 39.9 km/h.
A fast-finishing Craig Morley from the Gold Coast took the win on the day and with it the Spring Series title.
Ian Matthews from BBCC was third on the day and second in the series, with Aaron Pickett-Heaps from Logan taking third spot in the series
