Prins Powers to
Quarry Road, Sunday
22nd March 2009
cyclists tackled the tough Quarry Rd/Lake Lonsdale
circuit near Stawell on Sunday in cool, blustery
Masters champion Leon Gibson appeared to have been
well handicapped as he joined Peter Blair, Sean Prins
and Tony Lloyd on the 4 minute 15sec mark, and his
strength proved decisive as this bunch overtook limit
markers Peter Mayo, Les Power, Shauna Heard and Glenn
Ford with 15km to ride.
back on the course, 2 minute 30sec markers Alan Barnett,
Daryl Elliott and Drew Heard were safely holding
off the scratch bunch of Frank Kean, Chris Scott,
Steve Monks and Dean Hayward, but were making very
little progress in closing the gap to the leaders.
over the Quarry Rd hill with 5km to ride, Glenn Ford
was able to break free of his companions and make
a bid for a solo victory. However, his escape was
short lived as his chasers got back on terms.
next to attack was Sean Prins and he successfully
held his advantage to take the victory ahead of the
fast finishing Gibson and Ford.
