Heard Powers to Another Win
Stawell Racecourse - Sunday 14th June 2009

With some riders away at the Stan McPhee/Don Price Memorial at Warrnambool, a small contingent of vets braved the bitterly cold conditions of Stawell on Sunday to tackle the Pomonal-Mokepilly 55km circuit.

Limit markers Tony Lloyd and Peter Mayo rode strongly from their 8 and a half minute mark, and still held a good lead over 2 and half minute markers Daryl Elliott, Gerard O’Brien and Glenn Ford at the Mokepilly turn.

However, the gap closed steadily on the run home, and the two groups seemed likely to combine, which would have made things difficult for the chasing scratch bunch of Dean Hayward, Shaun Prins, Drew Heard and Allan Barnett.

Sensing the danger, Prins and Hayward put in strong turns to close the gap, and with 5km to ride the whole field had come together.

Heading towards the finishing line, Elliott was the first to go, with Mayo on his wheel, but the pair were overtaken by the powerful Drew Heard, who charged on to win from Hayward, with Ford taking out third placing.
