THE Ballarat/Sebastopol Cycling Club reclaimed the Tri-Series Championship shield on the weekend with outstanding performances across the board.
The three-round series against Geelong and Colac concluded in Beeac on the weekend with Ballarat/Sebastopol dominating on its way to victory winning all four senior grades and the junior handicap.
Geelong hosted the first round on June 18 with Ballarat/Sebastopol edging out the host town to take the early series lead.
It continued its stranglehold over the Tri-Series, claiming the second round in Dereel to lead the points standings 244, Geelong 114 and Colac 42.
Ballarat/Sebastopol stamped its dominance over the competition with a commanding third round win on the weekend, completing a clean sweep of the series to deliver a convincing win.
Ballarat/Sebastopol’s Tim Canny said the club was extremely happy to have the shield back in its grasp and was pleased with the positive result off the back of growing numbers at the cycling club.
Canny was a crucial member to the teams victory, with a consistent Tri-Series finishing second, first and third over the three A-grade races.
BSCC hasn’t held the shield since 2012 and was rapt to have it back after Geelong Cycling Club had held the shield over the past three years.
The cycling club will now turn its attention to the Melbourne to Ballarat race this weekend.
The 72km race travels down the Western Highway kicking off at 10am on Saturday and concluding at Kryal Castle.
