Limit Holds Off All Challenges
Quarry Road Handicap, Sunday 18th April 2010

Grampians cyclists tackled the 47km Quarry Rd circuit on Sunday and enjoyed mild, calm conditions after the strong winds and rain endured the previous week.

Limit markers Les Power, Damian Rabl and Garry Brumby made good use of their 13 minute handicap to set up a commanding lead early in the race.

Strong riding by the 4 minute riders Allan Barnett, Gerard O’Brien, Crystal Weymss and Daryl Elliott saw them run down 9 minute markers Steve Monks, Glenn Ford and Peter Mayo on the approach to the Sand Bar Hill but the limit markers were still out of sight.

Meanwhile, the strong scratch riders Frank Kean, Peter Wemyss, Danny Monaghan and Shane Clark had collared 2 minute markers Sean Prins, Drew Heard and Dean Hayward by mid race, and the combined bunch set out on a high speed chase of the out markers, finally catching the combined 4 and 9 minute riders not far from the finish line.

However, the limit riders had too great an advantage, and went on to take out the placings, with Brumby taking out the sprint to the line over Rabl and Power.

Frank Kean took out the bunch sprint to record the fastest time of 1 hour and 8 minutes. The scratch riders averaged over 40kph, and reached speeds up to 64 km/hr as they approached the finish line.
