Ron Kelly takes out Easter Handicap
Concongella - Sunday 8th April 07

Due to the Victorian and South Pacific Championships also held at Maryborough over Easter, a very small field contested the club's Easter Handicap.

Starting at the Concongella Hall, the 47km race was held in glorious autumn weather, with a light Northeasterly making the going a little tougher for the first two thirds of the circuit.

By the half way point, the limit pair of Larry Bales and Les Power had been caught by Ron Kelly and Merv Thompson.

The 4 riders worked together for the next 8kms until Larry found the pace a bit tough and dropped off.

Next to go was Merv who started to cramp up one of the long hills. With 6km to go, Ron saw his chance and broke away from Les, opening up a lead of about 300m.

The following pair of Michael Kelly and Dean Hayward couldn't bridge the gap, and backmarkers Gerard O'Brien and Alan Barnett struck trouble when Alan broke his chain.

Ron Kelly worked hard and maintained his lead to the finish, despite a gritty effort by Les Power, who just couldn't find enough to regain the lost ground. Merv Thompson managed to get up for third.
