Birthday Girl Takes the Cake!

Stawell cyclist Meg Parnaby celebrated her birthday with a win as the Grampians Veteran Cycling Club tackled Horsham’s 48km Rifle Butts short course on Sunday.

Due to the predicted heat, an 8am start was the order of the day, and the cool, calm conditions were always going to favour the limit riders.

Limit markers Meg Parnaby and Les Power made good use of their 16 minute mark and finished well clear of the field, with Parnaby taking out the sprint to the line.

The four minute bunch of Leon Gibson, Tony Lloyd and Tom Eldridge worked well to hold off the backmarkers, with Gibson taking out third placing across the line.

Scratchmen Frank Kean, Alan Barnett and Daryl Elliott pulled out a big effort in the closing stages of the race, to chase down the 1 ¼ minute markers Peter Parnaby, Gerard O’Brien and Drew Heard, with Barnett taking out fastest time of 1 hour 15 minutes.
