1 Circle events at the BAY on Thu Dec 22, 2016 3:45 pm

Quite often the more exciting events of the Carnival.
Huge Cross Wind being forecast somewhere around 15 to 25kmh mark Im being told.
Will sort the men from the boys and I think we may get a little bit of precipitation as well
Nitta , going by his State relay runs the other day will enjoy being up the front in the selected and could be a suprise packet,, Didnt I hear him retire from Pro running at the Bay last season, not sure but the lure of another sash has him back.
Floater is usually all over Protrack leading into the Bay telling us how well hes travelling, so the fact he is missing in action could mean he really fancies himself to at least make the final inthe Over 35s and is laying low.
The girls 550m could be a race between Messant and Robb who both ambled around the 550m at the Pre Bay.
Kitto is in form.
Watkins ran up to win the 550m at Pt Adel and his brother had a kick left in him !!! so will make his presence felt in the 550m but two runs in the predicted conditions could find him wanting in the final.

Anyone else out there with an opinion

Also great for the Old Codgers and Girls race brought forward so they get the feeling of running in front of a packed house , lets hope they do the move justice and its neck and neck to the line.

Maxxy Stevens has a mortgage on the select & has the strength (14:40 5Km) to cop the wind for 5 laps! 1600m Backies, hard to go past Matty Konetschka- ran brilliant at pre bay (4:05) & does always have that kick at the end! 800m is a wide open one.... Kitto, Watkins & Rubino will be around the mark too.

Good luck to the circle guys & c u on the track!

If it is as strong a wind as they anticipate then it will be a brave man who leads the Select Mile from the front and a better man who wins from the front. Suggest with such a small field this could bunch up and then it is dependant on who has the best kick.

Not sure of the form of some of the runners here, so who is likely to win a kick finish ?

Was extremely embarrassed to see a Select Mile going around at the Bay for Winners purse of $1000.....How did it ever get to this.Yes I know we need sponsors money but if you want elite athletes to turn up we need to offer more prizemoney.Credit to those that put their toe on the starting line and putting on a show.
I went home dug out an old program and below are the comparisons to races run 11 years ago.

`2001 70m ......$700.....2016.......$1200
120M RESTRICT..$500.....2016...$500
120M O35.......$200...2016...$300
550M W....$350.......$2016...$700
SELECT MILE....$2000......$1000
1600M ...$600........2016...$700

Im sure its a very good case to take to Leon Bignell , Minister for Tourism that we need an extra $ for the Select Mile to attract interstate athletes.
Apart from the locals and the interstate athletes who are regulars or home grown there was no extra cream of the crop.
Looking over the prizemoney its hard to believe you can get $700 for winning the 1600m and $1000 for winning the select.
Also back in 2005 we had two runners off 50m and the rest between 50 and scratch where in 2016 we had 5 runners over 50 who may not have been good enough to make the field in 2005
I think everyone would be more than happy with Sash ,trophy and prizemoney with most other events.

Fair comments regarding the select mile whispers! It is a shame that the $'s were quite low this year for the select mile ($4k total last year and $2k total this year?). I understand there are many reasons for this however, less interest in the event (recent years they have battled to get distance athlete's to enter the event I believe). However, whether or not that is because of the prize money, or the increasing fees each year (most distance runners will sign up with their amateur association first as a priority), they pay the same rego fee for a shot at lot less money proportionate to the sprinters/long sprinters. Chicken or the egg scenario?

However the select this year turned into a cracking spectacle to watch, with a very deserving winner being Maxxy! There were some other really good efforts, once again from Jacob and Roegs. Turns out speaking to Roegs after the event... he walked away with $100 for his 3rd place effort in the select... correct me if I'm wrong but 8th place in the vets/womens mile received $50. This is not what the select runners deserve in my opinion.

I think the select is arguably the hardest event to win at the bay sheffield carnival, with a max handicap being only 3.75% of the race distance... The event has a great history with some of the best runs I've seen being run in the select. Rhys Jones 2012, and the following year the battle between Mara and Rowe... with Rowe winning off scratch in which should have seen him take the athlete of the meet.... and to date, is the best run i've seen at the bay (including Ross's Scratch gift), but I may be bias.

This years field may well be down on quality compared to previous years, and I for one know that I am not a 'select' miler, but got the chance to race because of the quality being lower than previous years... watching the back markers mile (compared to the pre bay mile) I would have been much better off running in the backies. Granted, who wants to give up an opporunity to run in the best race in the carnival for a few extra $'s? Not me that's for sure.

Over on another thread we have a debate going on about athlete's not trying leading up into the bay, and improving 'too much' once the big day hits. The best thing about the select, is that no one hiding leading up into this race. In fact the best runners in the field, Mara/Stevens/Cocks all got pulled on the day from their given marks due to recent PB's..... not complaints there from any of them, in fact they embrace the tighter marks! Imagine that attitude in the other events?

There definitely needs to be more prize money for the select mile..... The Tassie carnivals saw the likes of Gregson, McSweyn and Lacaze competing! They'd be nice draw cards for the bay!

Hi Nittaz

Glad you think the way I do.
When I saw who was competing over the Tasman I wondered why some werent here.I know theres fares accomation and appearance lures but surely a nice winners purse is a start.
Also the Athlete of the Meet is ajudicated on a points basis not the run of the Carnival
Cheers and hope you enjoyed running in the Select.
