Frank Wins Keenly Fought Sprint
Quarry Road, Sunday 30th November 2008

  Frank Kean

A fresh Westerly made for tough riding conditions as the Grampians Vets cyclists tackled the 47km Quarry Road circuit last Sunday.

With the race starting and finishing from Mount Drummond Road, the lone limit rider David Cariss found the hilly start and adverse winds a little tough to handle, and was caught by the 9 minute riders Frank Stokes, Les Power, Shauna Heard and Meg Parnaby soon after the Mount Dryden turn.

Six minute riders Peter Mayo and Tony Lloyd also struggled against the wind, and were caught by 2 and a half minute riders Keiran Hogan and Peter Parnaby at about the 30km mark, after loosing Gerard O’Brien to a puncture some kilometres before the catch.

These four riders then combined to reel in the leading group with about 10km to go, picking up some of the 9 minute riders as they went past.

Meanwhile the scratch riders Alan Barnett, Tim Schneider, Drew Heard and Frank Kean were making up ground at a steady pace, and finally caught the leading bunch on the first of the steep Mount Drummond Road hills, with about 4km to go.

Tony Lloyd led out the final sprint, but was soon passed by Tim Schneider with Frank Kean on his wheel. Kean just managed to edge past Schneider to claim victory and also fastest race time of 1 hour 14 minutes. Schneider finished second with Tony Lloyd third.
