As your trusted webmaster will be spending next week in Fiji, here is the info for the following event:

 Alf Walker Memorial

Alf Walker began racing as a junior in 1948 and at the same time joined the Brunswick Cycling Club Committee.  His committee position out-lasted his racing career, but that is only because he continued to serve as club treasurer until 2016 where you could see him handing out prize money on Tuesday night track sessions each week.  Alf’s involvement in and fingerprints on Melbourne, Victorian, Australian, Olympic and international cycling in nearly 70 years cannot be fully stated here. 

However it may be from Alf’s daily local involvement with junior clinics, running races, Commissairing and serving as a mentor that so many people connected with him and therefore connected with cycling.  The strength of the communities he built and influenced continue to grow and be available even for those who didn’t have the pleasure of knowing him. 

Of course if you asked Alf about all of that, he would probably ignore the question, remark on what was happening right at the moment, and then ask what you’re doing next. 

 

 

We will be in Balliang for 3 laps on the 25k circuit.  The loop includes one decent climb, a 3k section of gravel and plenty o' wind.  This is the 4th and final race in the NorthWestern Handicap Tour.  This is your last chance to earn points towards the $1,200 prize money for the top ten series places.  Current standings can be found here.
