Shanae and Jess with trohies and ribbons
The finals of the PCV Ride To Time were held at the Moonee Valley races on Sat August 26. Central zone was represented by Jessica Harvey (from Riddells Creek PC) in the grade 1/2 section, riding at 550m/min and Shanae Reid (From Gisborne PC) riding at 500m/min.
Before the races started, the riders were marshalled at the tie-up stalls near the middle carpark.
Wendy Abey visited Shanae and "Pull Your Socks Up" at the stalls. Wendy coordinated the CZ RTT trials during the year.Bill Londregan did a great job in training the riders.
The riders were given racing silks to wear (or they could wear their own). The grade 3/4 ("maiden") riders lined up on the warm-up area for a photo.
All the spectators made their way into the racecourse to watch each rider on the screen and at the finish line.

Later in the day, the riders were also given various keepsake gifts and Lisa Coffey was thanked for her input into this competition.
