Grampians Veteran Cyclists competed in the Annual Greg Smith Memorial race on Sunday, which was run over Horsham’s 62Km long Rifle Butts course. A perfect autumn morning greated the field as they lined up for the start.

Tom Eldridge must have felt like a Tattslotto winner when he noted he had been given the limit mark of 15minutes 45 seconds.

He teamed well with Meg Parnaby to complete the course without being sighted by the rest of the field, taking out an easy win from Parnaby.

The scratch bunch had worked hard all race, with Tim Schneider putting in long turns along with Drew Heard, Danny Monaghan and Steve Monks.

However, they were unable to close the gap to second scratch markers Leon Gibson, Gerard O’Brien, Alan Barnett and Dean Hayward who in turn had run down the remnants of the seven minute bunch in Tony Lloyd and Peter Mayo with 10km to ride.

The subsequent sprint for 3rd place was taken out by Hayward with Leon Gibson taking out fourth place. Tim Schneider collecting the fastest time.
