Prins Breaks Clear to Win
Quary Road Handicap
Sunday 1st November 2009

Grampians Veteran cyclists tackled the tough Quarry Rd circiut on Sunday, battling a gusty easterly wind as they circumvented Lake Lonsdale.

Larry Bales put up a gutsy solo ride off his 19 ½ minute handicap to hold off the 10 ½ minute markers Meg Parnaby and John McIntyre until the Sandbar Rd.

At this point, Paranby set off alone in a bid for victory. However, the hard riding scratch bunch of Danny Monoghan, Gerard O’Brien, Drew Heard, Sean Prins and Allan Barnett had reeled in 6 ½ minute markers Wayne Cox, Peter Mayo and Les Power and were in hot pursuit.

Paranaby was overhauled on the steep Quarry Rd hill, and this scratch bunch settled down for a fight to the finish.

Prins attacked inside the last kilometre in what appeared to be a suicidal move, but his strength prevailed and he was able to hold off the fast finishing Drew Heard and Gerard O’Brien to claim a well deserved victory in a time of 1 hour 14 minutes 15 seconds.











Looking for some company to share the kilometres with?

There are usually Training Groups leaving both Stawell and Horsham at regular weekly times.
