Stuart King of the Sprint
Rifle Butts Short Course, Sunday 7th September 2008

Having endured rain, hail and strong winds on the previous weekend, Grampians cyclists were pleasantly surprised by a mild spring day on Rifle Butts circuit over 47km.

Limit markers Meg Parnaby and Shauna Heard made good use of their 12 ½ minute handicap, and for a time it seemed they may turn Sunday into Mother’s Day!

However, second scratch riders Peter Parnaby, Mark Ubergang and Harvey Lang had other ideas.

They managed to close the two minute gap to Tom Eldridge, Peter Mayo and Stuart King after 20km, and then, taking advantage of the additional man power to hold off the chasing scratch markers of Drew Heard, Gerard O’Brien, Peter Blair and Allan Barnett, they were able to collar the out markers coming through Bungalally, with about 4km to go.

The pace was high as the combined group turned back into Golf Course Rd with a tail wind, and in a sprint to the line Stuart King proved too strong, beating Lang with Mayo placing third.

The scratch bunch finished shortly after, with Barnett taking out the days fastest time of 1 hour 15 min.
