Light breezes, cloudy skies and a Storm coming was what greeted the Riders for the first race of the Winter Series.The format for this first race was a Grouped Handicap where riders of similar abilities were grouped together according to their handicaps.
8 riders were on hand to compete and were grouped into the following:
Richard Brown, Paul O’Kelly and Bob Charlton off Limit,
David Cowdrey, Bruce Syme and Garry Whitfield, 2 minutes later and
Harry White and Brendan Lowrey 3 and 1/2 minutes further back off Scratch.
The first and second groups on the road linked up and worked together before Bob succumbed to a flat front tyre heading home from Wardell, while Brendan proved to strong for Harry and rode away from him.
At the finish line there was a 5 way sprint with Garry Whitfield just edging out Richard Brown, Paul O’Kelly finished strongly for 3rd spot on the Podium.
Monthly Medal Winner for June – Brendan Lowrey
Thanks goes, as always, to our wonderful Officials, Jack Ransom, Carole Sharrock, Ian Gailler, and Alan Paull.
