Bendigo Madison Women's Support Races

Sunday      Click here to go to Saturday's write-up

The Bendigo Madison is one of the richest track events in Australia. Run in conjunction with a running race meeting, the Madison meet takes place over 2 days and comprises over 150 events in those 2 days. 

Such is the 'pull' of the event, there are regularly crowds of several thousand in attendance. This year promises to have good weather (sunny and mid 30'C temperatures), great fields and some exciting racing.

In the first even of day two, the temperature had already reached 30+ degrees. This resulted in a steady pace being set, as the bunch rolled without attacks throughout the majority of the race. At two to go Christine Ervin lead the group through, increasing the pace slightly.

At the bell, Tahlia Clayton headed the group through looking very strong, in the end taking the win easily ahead of Roz Bradley.

In a replica of race one, the pace was easy for the first six laps. At the bell Christine Allen attacked closely marked by Hannah Bush. Belinda Goss was boxed in, she had managed to get herself stuck on the inside of the track, with Briana James and Tess Downing on her outside. With 250m go, Goss managed to get out but was forced to go round the outside to take the win. Unfortunately in her attempt to get out, Goss had swung out and caused Jessica Berry to easy up and was subsequently relegated by the judges after the race.
