Kean Sprints to A Grade Victory
Fyans Creek
Sunday 17th January 2010

Some time off the bike over the Christmas break didn’t seem to dampen the form of Grampains Veteran cyclist Frank Kean, who sprinted to victory in the A grade scratch event last Sunday.

Held over the 44km Fyans Creek circuit, nineteen riders contested the 4 divisions. Fresh south westerly winds made for a fast start, but the return journey into the wind more difficult.

Six riders contested the A grade event, with Kean attempting to break up the field several times throughout the race, but still had the legs to get the jump on the others in the final sprint, beating Peter Wemyss to the line.

The B grade riders were all evenly matched, so no rider had the strength to make a break unitl the end. Peter Parnaby launched an attack from the rear in the final sprint to get a good lead, and go on to take the race from Tony Lloyd in second place.

Stuart King was too good for the rest of the field in the C grade event, easily taking out the sprint ahead of Tom Eldridge in second place.

The D grade riders set a fairly leisurely pace for most of the race, only getting down to the serious business over the closing stages. Tony Rathgeber was too strong in the sprint, and took out the division from Damian Rabl.
