Lang Wins at Glenorchy
Golfcourse Rd, Horsham - Sunday 24th June 07

  harvey
  Harvey Lang
   

A small field of 11 riders lined up for the start of the 51 kilometre Glenorchy Lubeck circuit in very chilly but dry conditions. A northerly wind ranging from 10 to 20 kph meant the riders were working into a side head wind for 2 sides of the triangular course.

Larry Bales and Meg Parnaby were first away on 17 minutes with Tony Lloyd, Peter Carter and Harvey Lang 10 minutes behind them off 7 minutes.

Off 3 minutes, the second scratch bunch of Jamie Bennett, Gerard O’Brien and Alan Barnett were caught after about 30 kilometres by scratch riders Ian Blackie, Drew Heard and Frank Kean.

At the front of the race Larry and Meg were working well together and were not caught until 7 kilometres from home by the 7 minute bunch, who were defying the handicapper with very strong riding. This group continued together and it came down to a sprint for the line with Tony Lloyd leading them out, only to be overtaken by Harvey Lang who crossed first, with Peter Carter second and Tony taking third.

The great improver over recent weeks, Larry Bales, continued his run by out sprinting Meg Parbaby for fourth place, a first ever.

Drew Heard took the honors in the sprint when the scratch bunch finished giving him the fastest time of 1 hour 18min 45 sec and an average speed for the race of 39kph.
