Limit Markers Unsighted
Concongella Handicap
Sunday 16th May 2010

  Damian Rabl

Grampian veteran cyclists tackled Stawell’s 46km Concongella circuit on Sunday, and were greeted by a beautiful autumn morning.

The absence of wind usually improves the out markers chances, and Tony Rathgeber and Damien Rabl were determined to make the most of their 12 minute 45 second start, setting up a huge lead over 3 minute 30 second markers Sean Prins, Gerard O’Brien, Allan Barnett and Daryl Elliott, which this group was unable to close.

Further back, Danny Monaghan was driving fellow scratch markers Peter Wemyss, Drew Heard and Dean Hayward, but found their handicap to great in such ideal conditions.

Approaching the finish line, the limit markers were still out of sight of the chasers, with Rabl taking out the sprint ahead of Rathgeber.

Daryl Elliott finished best of the next bunch to take out third, with Peter Wemyss taking out fastest time of  1 hour twelve minutes 27 seconds.











Looking for some company to share the kilometres with?

There are usually Training Groups leaving both Stawell and Horsham at regular weekly times.
