Shauna Rides to Solo Victory
Quarry Road - Sunday 3rd February 2008

Shauna Heard showed the rest of the field a clean set of heels (wheels?) to comfortably win last Sunday’s Grampians Veterans event.

Cyclists competed over the 46km Mt Drummond/Lake Lonsdale circuit, and faced a strong South Easterly wind in addition to the hills that this course is noted for.

  Shauna Heard

Fifteen riders faced the starter, with Les Power and Shauna Heard being first away off 19 minutes. Heard proved to be too strong for a not so fit Power, and soon moved away to ride solo.

The 12 minute bunch of Leon Gibson, Tom Eldridge and Frank Stokes set off in pursuit with Gibson and Eldridge combining well.

They were followed by the 6 minute second scratch group of Jamie Bennett, Drew Heard, Allan Barnett and Stuart King.

This group eventually reeled in the 12 minute bunch on the hills 4km from the finish. The scratch bunch of Ian Blackie, Frank Kean and Daryl Elliot chased hard all day, just failing to bridge the gap to the combined bunches.

But out front Shauna Heard was riding a great solo race, crossing the line over a minute clear of the next rider, and averaging over 30kph in the tough conditions.

The sprint for second saw Jamie Bennett emerge from the bunch with Allan Barnett third. The scratch bunch picked up fastest time of 1hr 13 min with time officially going to Ian Blackie.







Looking for some company to share the kilometres with?
