Posted by Doug on 2015/4/27 7:36:44 (115 reads)

Jade Colligan returns to the Womens National Road Racing Series in Tasmania this week when she starts the Mersey Valley Tour with the Subaru NSW Institute of Sport team.
Jade has secured a guest ride with the NSW team for events in 2015 where the Mersey Valley Tour and the Tour of the Murray are on the agenda.
The Mersey Valley Tour consists of three separate stages over Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The Subaru NSWIS team will consist of five under 23 women and will be based at Ulverstone for the event.
Stage one if an individual time trial on the only flat course of the three day event. Jade has posted some impressive itt?s in national and state events in 2014 and is looking forward to this event.
The second day is an 89 kilometre road race over the undulating terrain of northern Tasmania and the tour concludes with a 79 kilometre stage on Sunday over a demanding course with plenty of hard climbing to be done.
Having returned from Canberra this year to attend the university at Wollongong Jade has been racing the local scene with the Nowra Velo Club against the men in both A and B grade events for some tough competition.
Last month Jade also raced the NSW Womens criterium championships at Heffron Park and the Southern Division Road Championships at Goulburn.
The Nowra Velo Club also has two riders on mens teams for the National Road Racing Series for 2015 where Michael Troy continues with the Sydney based GPM/Stulz team and Scott Thompson is with the Canberra based Pheonix Cycling Collective team.
These riders are in action in NSW and Queensland in May where they will race at Cootamundra on the weekend 9th and 10th and then to the Battle of the Border at Murwillumbah which is a four stage event over some tough terrain.
From Murwillumbah Troy and Thompson will move into Queensland for the four day Tour of Toowoomba which is an important event on the NRS series.
Levi Johns has secured a position on a NSW team to race local and state events.
This is the Sydney based JML Racing team and his first appearance with this squad was two weeks ago at Bathurst for criteriums and then the Blayney to Bathurst event.

BREAKING CLUB NEWS : Cycling NSW Head Injury and Medical Suspension Policy
Posted by Doug on 2015/3/27 15:40:00 (157 reads)

Cycling NSW takes rider safety and well-being seriously and has developed a policy for riders who may have potentially received a head or other injury which from which on-going participation in cycling may result in a further catastrophic injury of the rider and/or other riders. The sport of cycling has inherent risk and falls from bikes during race and training can and do occur.

This policy should be read in conjunction with the Helmet Policy which describes the preventative requirements of helmet use in competition and training.

The first and immediate action is the safety and well-being of the injured rider, other competitors and officials. Only after the site has been secured and immediate attention to the injured rider taken place, provided should any further consideration of this policy be undertaken.

This policy is a guideline for commissiares and officials and in no way should replace the advice of a registered medical practitioner. Any rider who feels they may have been subject to a head or neck injury or any other medical occurrence should seek expert advice. Any continuation of racing or training is always undertaken at the riders own risk

Head/Neck Injuries
Where a rider falls during competition (regardless of the category of racing), the Chief Commissaire will be responsible for considering if the rider has been subject to any knock of the head or suffered any adverse positioning of the neck. The Chief Commissaire will use the advice of the first aid attendant on duty at the event to make a determination.

Where the rider has any visual injury such as a cut, contusion, bruising or demonstrates the symptoms of concussion including head ache, blurred vision or has been knocked out for any period of time, the Chief Commissaire will deem the rider has received a head injury.

Where the helmet of the rider has been damaged such that the inner casing is damaged in any way (eg cracking, compression, breakage etc) the Chief Commissaire will deem the rider has received a head injury.

Where the rider reports any tingling or numbness of the feet/legs or arms/hands, neck soreness or was seen to land in an awkward positon with respect to their head/neck, it will be considered a neck injury may have occurred and the rider will be issued a medical suspension.

Other Injuries/Medical Issues
There are a variety of other medical conditions or injuries which may result in a significantly increased risk of a catastrophic medical occurrence should riding continue on the day of the incident or subsequently. These may include but are not limited to; an epileptic episode, heart attack, heart arrhythmia or other.

Such occurrences may be reported to the Chief Commissaire either during or after the event and may also be reported to them by the first aid officer in attendance. Should the Chief Commissaire be of the view that the rider may have been subject to a serious medical occurrence they will issue a medical suspension notice

Injury Suspension Notice

The Chief Commissaire will issue the rider a suspension notice which identifies the rider cannot return to training or competition riding until they have received a medical clearance and that clearance is received at the CNSW office. In some instances the medical clearance may stipulate a return to certain training activities under certain conditions. If such a clearance is provided, a subsequent clearance for all cycling activities will be provided prior to the rider being deemed allowed to participate in race events

If in any doubt as to the occurrence or severity of a head injury, the Chief Commissaire will issue an injury suspension notice.

Where the fall/injury occurs at a training session and a Chief Commissiare is not present, the onus of reporting falls on the senior coach or official present at the time of the fall/injury.

Where the rider has been incapacitated such that they are unable to be issued an injury suspension notice, the Chief Commissaire or official/coach will advise the CNSW office as soon as is practicable and the office will make arrangements for notification of the rider of the suspension and requirements thereafter.

BREAKING CLUB NEWS : State Teams Time Trial
Posted by Mel on 2015/2/24 8:41:43 (162 reads)

While the clothing portal is open for ordering of club kit I thought I would throw the NSW State TTT into the mix. Those interested in competing in the event held here locally on our very own course by Elite Energy, it would be a good idea to start looking into getting teams together and ensuring members will be in suitable kit for the event. ie, if you are planning to be a competitive team then look at ensuring you have skinsuits.

For any females out there, last year we had a very successful first ever attempt at this event and all participants came away extremely satisfied and happy that they had given it a go. It is a great way to get to know your fellow female club members better by competing as a team and we were very well supported by the club committee and also the club coach. We rode last year on standard road bikes with basically no aero gear to only be 2:30mins behind the winning team on full aero gear.
If you are interested in having a go at the Teams Time Trial that let me know asap and we can start organising it early and look at taking the bar higher this time.
