Heard Blasts Way to Victory
Fyans Creek 44km
Sunday 20th September 2009
Vets racing the day before in the Ivan Howes Memorial,
only a small field turned out for the 44km Fyans
and Peter Mayo set off from 12 minutes, enjoying
the calm conditions which were ideal for racing.
off 4 minutes, Alan Barnett, Shane Clark and Drew
Heard rode hard and caught the limit riders with
about 10 kilometres to go.
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.
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.
Volk recorded the fastest time of the day with 1
hour 12 minutes 10 seconds.
