On Saturday was my last race at Heffron Park. I've decided to leave it for a while as it is so time consuming while I'm trying to finish my studies and maintain some semblance of a social life on weekends.

Here is some footage from the start of the race. Paul Craft (or Crafty) decided to lay into one guy when he turned up wearing a world champhionship jersey. Crafty does this any time a person wears a jersey that does not belong to them. This guy should have known better. He was being ripped into for the whole race.

The race was awesome averaging 40km/h. Usually c-grade does around 37km/h but with prize money, pudding, and B grade catching the bunch it was a lot faster. Unfortunately I flated on lap 12 and so ended my cycling career with not even a glimmer of glory.

I remember reading (on RAW site i think) someone asking if it was cool to wear a world champ jersey to RAW & crafty ripped into him with the same attitude.

Crafty is right jerseys like that shoudn't be on sale to the publc especially not c grade club riders

Nothing wrong with trying to sell the world champ jersey--you've just got to be a complete dunderhead to buy one then have the chutzpah to wear it to a race (of any grade).

Although, I understand that there was a genuine and current World Champ there last Saturday.

Journalist worlds, but still...

When Randwick Botany used to be more of a club, rather than a one on one race like it is today, that bloke Shaun Ballesty and the late great Brian Martin used to lead the races from start to finish. As a long lasting member I think Shaun should have worn the Rainbow Jersey, and he certainly saved some money than buying those crappy Very expensive FRF Jerseys.
