Heard Blasts Way to Victory
Fyans Creek 44km Handicap
Sunday 20th September 2009

With many Vets racing the day before in the Ivan Howes Memorial, only a small field turned out for the 44km Fyans Creek Handicap.

Meg Parnaby and Peter Mayo set off from 12 minutes, enjoying the calm conditions which were ideal for racing.

Riding off 4 minutes, Alan Barnett, Shane Clark and Drew Heard rode hard and caught the limit riders with about 10 kilometres to go.

Further back, the scratch riders were in trouble after Chris Scott punctured at about the half way mark, leaving Dean Hayward and visiting Bendigo rider Paul Volk with an impossible task to haul in the other riders.

The finish came down to a charge from a long way out, ideal conditions for Drew Heard, who outlasted (out blasted!) the rest to take first place, ahead of Peter Mayo and Shane Clarke.

Paul Volk recorded the fastest time of the day with 1 hour 12 minutes 10 seconds.
