Power Claims Another Victory
Stawell Race Course, Sunday 1st June 2008

Still conditions and clear blue skies set the stage for the small field of cyclists who tackled the undualting 61km Stawell race course circuit.

Starting at the Stawell race course, on the Pomonal road just out of Stawell, riders headed out towards Pomonal, before turning north past Lake Fyans to Mokepilly, then onto Halls Gap, and across to Pomonal, before the final dash back to Stawell.

Limit markers Les Power and Meg Parnaby, along with a flu riddled Danny Monaghan made good use of their 11 minute handicap to establish a good lead.

Three minute riders Harvey Lang, Peter Blair and Peter Mayo were within striking distance of the limit riders at the finish, but missed out by 200 metres, with Power sprinting to the line first in a tightly contested finish, taking the win by a narrow margin from Meg Parnaby. The not to well Monaghan limped across the line for third.

The scratch bunch of Gerard O’Brien, Drew Heard and Allan Barnett worked well together, but could not bridge the gap to the goup three minutes in front, and never looked likely to take part in the finish.

Heard took fastest time honours of 1 hour, 41 minutes and 32 seconds.
