ROSEMARY Hastings is Bathurst's masters machine who shows no signs of slowing down.
The Bathurst Cycling Club rider picked up three gold medals in the recent Cycling Australia Masters Road Nationals, completing a road race, individual time trial and criterium winning treble.
As the sole rider in the Women's Masters 9 category across all of her events it can be hard to gauge the strength of Hastings' rides, but you only need to look at the other age groups to see how well she went.
Her time of 34 minutes and 40.64 seconds in the 17.24 kilometre individual time trial would have been good enough effort to beat several Women's Masters 6 competitors in the same event.
Hastings rode a time of 35:07 for the criterium and completed the road race in 1:42:30.
Jeremy Ryan was the other Bathurst rider to take part in the nationals, contesting a very competitive batch of Men's Masters 4 events.
His best result came in the criterium where he finished fifth, just off the back of a four-strong sprint for the finish headed by Parramatta's Richard Allen.
Ryan was part of a five man breakaway who managed to stay away for more than half the race.
While the Bathurst rider didn't have the kick to contest the final sprint he has happy to come home inside the top five.
"As with all the riding over the weekend, the racing was very even and the crit was no different. After a hectic start five of us managed to get away and stay there until the finish," he said.
"Unfortunately sprinting isn't my forte so unless I could get away from those other four guys I was always going to be a fair chance of coming fifth.
"I'm still relatively new to criterium racing. The guys race it in Sydney regularly and blokes follow those guys quite heavily. It's hard for them to get away but for someone less known like me it's that little bit easier."
Ryan remained consistent over the course of the competition, coming home ninth in the road race and 10th in the time trial.
Canberra's Steve Crispin won a three way sprint for the road race title while Ryan came across with a strung out group of riders six minutes behind the winner.

Penrith's Peter Milostic was a comfortable winner of the time trial but Ryan was just over half a minute away from a bronze medal finish.
Ryan said those time trial and road race results were a mixed bag.
"I wasn't happy with the time trial because I won that last year. The competition's very tough and I probably didn't have my best day," he said.
"The road race was a tough course and I think my result is accurate to where I sit. I was aiming for a top 10 in that so to finish ninth was really good."
