Is there a more serene criterium venue in Australia? It was a cracking evening at the Newington Armory. Glorious weather. Good sized fields. Slick, safe racing across the four grades. Huge kudos to the tireless and multi-talented Col Cheers (Course Set-Up, Course Sweeper, Commissaire, First Aid) from Lidcombe-Auburn CC for running such a fine show each Thursday night and to all the volunteers and spectators. If you haven’t been down there yet, it’s really well worth a visit. Such a beautiful, albeit relatively unknown, part of western Sydney.
