Daryl Elliot takes out A grade event.
Armstrong - Sunday 29th April 07

A small field of riders at Armstrong tackled the 50km A and B grade scratch races, and the 28km C grade scratch race.

Held over a picturesque undulating course, the A and B grade riders covered 7 laps of the course, while the C grade riders covered 4 laps.

  Daryl Elliott and Drew Heard

All riders set off together, with the C grade riders soon dropping off the back of the main pack to fight out their own race.

The main pack stayed together for most of the race, despite a few attempts to break away up a steeper grade on the far side of the course.

On the 5th lap, Frank Kean, Drew Heard and Steve Monks did manage to break away for several kilometres, but were chased down by the main pack, largely due to the efforts of Alan Barnett and Danny Monaghan.

The race came down to the final sprint, with Daryl Elliot getting the better of Drew Heard to take line honours in the A grade race.

Danny Monaghan got the better of Tony Lloyd for the B grade sprint.

Meanwhile in the C grade event, Meg Parnaby broke away on the second lap up the long rise to the railway line, and managed to maintain her lead for the next two laps to take first place. Ross Lumley was second.












Looking for some company to share the kilometres with?

There are usually Training Groups leaving both Stawell and Horsham at regular weekly times.
