Grampians Riders do Well at Maryborough
Congratulations to all Grampians rider who competed in the Australian Vets Championships at Maryborough over Easter. In the age group road races on Saturday, Jen Collier and Meg Parnaby both placed second in their age groups, Frank Kean was third, and Tony Lloyd eighth.

In the Time Trials on Monday both Jen Collier and Meg Parnaby won gold on the 25km out and back course. The outward leg was fast due to a strong tail wind, but the return journey into the wind was tough!!

VCV Life Membership to Tony Lloyd
The Grampians Vets would like to congratulate Tony Lloyd on receiving a life membership from the VCV at a recent Delegates Meeting in Geelong. Tony was a founding member of the Grampians Club and served as its President and/or secretary from 1996 to 2006, and the Vice President in more recent times. Tony is also currently serving as the VCV Treasurer, and is in his 4th year of service, as well as the Grampians VCV Delegate, and travels to Geelong every two months to the meetings. Tony has served as the Delegate every year except for the first, so that is stamina!! Thanks Tony from all club members for your many years of dedication to cycling and the Grampians Vets. A well earned award!

Tail Lights
Members are reminded that tail lights are required on all bikes including time trial bikes to race. No light no racing. Lights should be clearly visible from 100m and be set not to flash.
