Elliott and Rooney Win Scratch Races
Horsham - Sunday 15th July 07

  Daryl Elliott

A very small field of 8 riders braved the cold for the A and B grade scratch races held at Horsham.

Apart from the cool conditions, riding conditions were very good, as there was very little breeze. Even the section between Natimuk Road to Noradjuha was unusually kind thanks to the very slight Northerly breeze.

Rugged up against the cold, B grade riders Shauna Heard, Ted McKabe, Roger Williams and Graeme Rooney were first to leave the Walsh's Road intersection.  They stayed together until Noradjuha.

This is where Rooney finally realised it was a scratch race and not a handicap event.  He changed tactics and left his team mates behind. Rooney placed first, averaging 32kph and finished 2 minutes ahead of Shauna Heard who rode well to finish second. Williams proved that he is regaining some form by holding well with McKabe.

A grade riders Stuart King, Daryl Elliott, Allan Barnett and Tony Lloyd were well matched and averaged 37.5kph over the course. They met Rooney 10 kilometres from home and our handicapper took note that Rooney was able to keep up with them and take a few turns up front.

All four A grade riders were involved in the sprint across the finishing line. Again, Elliott proved he is one of our strongest riders by placing first. King crossed in second place.










Looking for some company to share the kilometres with?
