CLUB RACE RESULTS
Despite slight drizzle and excellent field turned up to this morning's 52k Handicap at La Trobe Uni. 23 riders started plus 5 beginners in the 'Come and Try' group led by Murray Wallace. As the bunches set off it was clear that the handicapper had done a good job as they were all working well together and the gaps were decreasing but only slightly. By the turn around all five groups were still separated but only 3 minutes from front to back. The front 3 bunches came together with about 5k to go while combined scratch and block bunch was steamrolling along gaining time quickly. In the end the front groups held off the back markers by 30seconds with Terry Halpin getting up for his first win followed by Damien Sims, wtih Mark Dunlop third. Brad Rose won fastest time from Steve Kilpatrick and Katherine McInerney was first female. Thanks to Charly McMillan, Cyril Land and Geoff Damm for marshalling and commissariing.
Remember the is a committee meeting tomorrow night 7:30pm at 374 Amatex St, Albury.
