Noradjuha 60km Handicap - Sunday 9th August 2009

  peter mayo
  Peter Mayo took out another win.
   

Cool but relatively calm conditions made for good racing conditions as a smaller field of cyclists tackled the Grampians Vets 60km Noradjuha circuit.

Riding off 12 minutes, the limit riders Tania Walter, Meg Parnaby, John McIntyre and Tony Rathgeber looked to have an unassailable lead half way through the race, still being a very distant speck on the horizon to the 7 minute riders Les Power, Peter Mayo and Peter Parnaby.

However, a determined and sustained attack from the the chasing riders gradually closed the gap, and after turning into the wind at Nurrabiel the gap closed quickly. The two bunches merged several kilometres before Lower Norton, with 7 kilometres to go.

Meanwhile, the scratch riders had their work cut out to make up the seven minutes to the mid field riders, and at this stage were still nowhere in sight.

In the fight to the line, the seven minute riders were too strong for the limit riders, with Mayo taking line honours ahead of Peter Parnaby and Les Power.

The scratch riders finished several minutes later, with Gerard O’Brien taking out the fastest time of 1 hour 39 minutes.
