Drew Takes out Racecourse Handicap
Stawell Race Course, Sunday 29th March 2009

A glorious autumn morning greeted Grampian veteran cyclists as they arrived at Stawell race course to tackle the Pomonal-Mokepilly 55km circuit.

Warm temperatures and the absence of wind normally favour the front markers, and Meg Parnaby and Bridget Lang set off determined to make the most of their 18 minute 30sec advantage.

They were followed 7 minutes later by Dan Heard, with a further 5minute 30sec gap to Glenn Ford, Tony Lloyd, Shane Clarke, Peter Mayo and Stuart King.

However, it was the 3 minute bunch of Drew Heard, Gerard O’Brien, Alan Barnett, Dean Hayward and Sean Prins who attacked the course from the start, and had made good  inroads on the rest of the field approaching Pomonal, and then on the return leg to Mokepilly.

This group combined with the 5 minute 24sec markers approaching Lake Fyans on the run home, and were able to safely hold off the scratch bunch of Ian Blackie, Frank Kean, Chris Scott and Harvey Lang, and ran down the out markers with less than 2km to ride.

Sean Prins launched a bid for victory inside the last kilometre, but was caught near the line, with Heard taking out the sprint from Hayward and King.

Frank Kean took fastest time of 1 hour 24 minutes.
