Results – 2024 Liquor Barons Numbat Cup Round 4 – Ladies Day

Sunday 23 June 2024

Guildford Meadows, Caversham

What a big day it was for WACX! Round 4 of the Liquor Barons Numbat Cup Series was ‘Ladies Day’ and it was by all accounts a spectacular event. We are so thankful for the amazing and unwavering support from our volunteers, riders, supporters and spectators.

A Record-Breaking Ladies Day

We were thrilled to see 50 ladies lining up at the start, a testament to the growing interest and enthusiasm for cyclocross among women. Our heartfelt thanks go to everyone who helped us reach this milestone.

Zoe Davison helped to kick the Ladies Day festivities off by hosting a skills session for over 20 ladies. All the ladies received tips and hints from one of WA’s leading female riders. Thanks to Zoe for taking time out of her day to run this session.

The ladies really embraced the festivities, with so many colourful outfits and costumes out on course. Here’s a sample of favourites from Stackart Photography:

And at the end of the day’s racing, the ladies enjoyed Moët champagne kindly donated by Liquor Barons, sparkling apple juice, refreshing cold brew from Twin Peaks Coffee Roasters and delicious homemade cupcakes.

Community Spirit

Our regular master of ceremonies, Stuart Carson, was overseas on a well-earned break, but the WACX community really stepped up to ensure the day ran smoothly.

WACX is entirely volunteer-run. Everyone is taking time out of their lives to help run these events. So next time you see a volunteer at one of our races, give them a pat on the back and a big thank you!

And in no particular order, some special call-outs to volunteers who stepped up to assist on the wekeend:

  • Cameron Bond for managing the electronic race timing
  • Ben and Tristan Nash for designing the course
  • Ashley Williams for stepping up as master of ceremonies, getting on the microphone and handling some race call-ups
  • Mandy McEvoy and Craig Makin for efficiently handled the race registration tent
  • The Pedlow family for generously bringing down bike racks for all riders to make use of
  • Sam Bolton for performing the AusCycling commissaire duties and assisting with race call-ups
  • Bryan Stevenson for his regular behind-the-scenes work liaising with the council for venue bookings and ensuring we have event health personnel at every event
  • Tanya Matear for the excellent promotion of the Ladies Day event across social media
  • Mark Matear for backing up Cameron in the race timing tent, plus keeping us all up to date with publishing content on the WACX website
  • Stef Van Amerongen and Greg Buchanan for pouring bubbly and handing out those delicious cupcakes to all the female finishers
  • Stackart Photography, foto di corse, and Lyndon Greeshaw for capturing stunning shots throughout of the day

We are also very grateful to all the other volunteers who dedicated their Sunday to course setup, assisting in running the event, and packing up afterwards.

A day of all-out racing

Despite some rain in the days leading up to the race, the course at Guildford Meadows remained fairly dry, making for some very fast lap times. The circuit was flowing, with plenty of bumps and dips hidden in the grass to keep riders on their toes. And the nature of the circuit meant that we often saw bunches form and tactics were required from riders to separate themselves from their competitors.

There was even an incident where one of the barriers was snapped in half – no names mentioned, but single-speed riders, you know who you are! 😃 Thankfully, we had a spare barrier to keep the race going smoothly.

In the Men’s Elite race, Tristan Nash once again showed his dominance by taking the win. And in the Women’s Elite race, Tracey Chapman emerged victorious in the day’s main Ladies Day event.

Looking ahead

With only two races left in the season, we’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the fifth and final round of the Liquor Barons Numbat Cup Series at Iho Park in South Guildford. We’ll then wrap up the season with the State Championships at Garvey Park in Ascot, celebrating another fantastic season of cyclocross racing.

Thank you once again to all the volunteers, riders, and supporters for making Ladies Day a memorable event. We look forward to seeing you all at the next races!


We had a few timing gremlins today that we will endeavour to resolve. Please bear with us.
