Photos: PETER MCDONALD Shining light: Silverstream's Kim Hamer- Hurst was the first woman home in the major 45-minute event. By COLIN WILLIAMS More than 70 riders took part in the suc- cessful opening round of Upper Hutt's cyclocross series at Trentham Memorial Park. We had good numbers, up on last year where the biggest was about 50; and we had plenty of good feedback with a lot of people signing up for the whole series,'' organiser Mike Anderson said. There were a lot of new faces. We had a group of guys who had come down from Napier and they'll be back and there were quite a few guys from Welling- ton who ride all the bike races going.'' Only half a dozen'' woman competitors were on course and Mr Anderson hoped this would rise during the next seven meets, which run fortnightly through to mid- September at Trentham Memorial, Califor- nia and Harcourt Parks. Several children took part in the foggy morning's opener before separate 30-minute novice and 45-minute (plus a final lap) events. Cyclist and Oceania speed skater Ollie Jones easily won the shorter event and Mr Anderson said his effort was good enough to suggest he would be competitive in the open, longer race. On Sunday that was taken out by Alex Revell, with prominent mountainbiker Kim Hamer-Hurst the first woman home. Big in Europe, cyclocross (cross country on bikes) is an endurance event where riders circuit a demanding course which challenges bike handling skills and, with water crossings and hurdles, requires riders to regularly dismount. Chatham Cup first of two key games By COLIN WILLIAMS A rollicking three-goal second half against a front-running Island Bay saw Pak 'n Save Upper Hutt City keep their realistic football championship hopes flying high. The win, on the fast Te Whaea artificial turf, sees City back on top of the Central Premier table, equal with Wellington United and a point ahead of Island Bay who, with a game in hand, remain threatening. Island Bays' only two defeats this season have come courtesy of City but the local team's focus now shifts to the co-leading Wellington United. City will play Wellington this Saturday and the next, in the knock-out Chatham Cup and cen- tral league respectively. They have played once this season, in the premier first round, with Wellington United delivering City the first of only two losses, with an 89th strike in that game. So, statistically, the two teams could not be more evenly matched at Harcourt Park at 2pm Saturday, with Wellington's 4-1 win over Olympic on the weekend every bit as good as Upper Hutt's scalping of Island Bay. A win on Saturday in the Chatham Cup would see City remaining alive in the high-profile competition as the fixture draw goes national for the following round. I would like to win both, of course,'' City's player-coach Pedro Garcias says of his double header'' with United. We want to go as far as poss- ible in the Cup. To be alive when it goes national would be massive.'' He said it would be an open game because both sides played high-speed football. Garcias, who continues to battle a knee injury, came on at halftime on Saturday and scored City's important first in a matter of minutes, finishing off good work from Matt Gasper and Jake Ellis. The experienced Garcias will be off the bench on Saturday, as he manages his limited game time. Matt Bennett and Joel Marshall scored City's second and third goals after a first 45 minutes Garcias said were disappointing. We didn't do well, really, but we made the changes and got some more experience onto the park and it was good to get those away points.''
