bunch, the trio made the most of the light tail wind
out to Noradjuha to hold a 5 minute lead at
the half way point over the 4 minute riders Tony
Lloyd, Tom Eldridge, Peter Mayo and Gerard O’Brien.

of 2 and half minutes over the 4 minute riders, and
won comfortably, with Tony Rathgeber taking out the
sprint from Meg Parnaby and John McIntyre.

Barnett and Daryl Elliott looked like they were on
track to catch the 4 minute riders, having reduced
their lead to 2 minutes at the half way point.

than a minute behind them.
