Sunday 22nd August 2010
Grampian Veteran cyclists were spared
the recent lashings of rain and gale force winds as
they tackled Horsham’s 46km Rifle Butts Circuit
However, a strengthening north easterly
breeze ensured the homeward bound leg on the Henty
Highway would be tough.
Meg Parnaby was the sole limit
rider, but was joined mid race by 7 minute markers
Tom Eldridge, Stuart King and Tony Rathgeber, and the
combined group worked hard to hold onto their advantage.
Meanwhile, scratch markers Sean Prins,
Chris Scott and Drew Heard were powering around the
course, and reined in Gerard O’Brien, Daryl Elliott
and Allan Barnett as they passed by the quarry. A high
speed chase ensued, which resulted in the limit markers
being caught two kilometres from the finish.
sprint to the line, Prins edged out Heard with Elliott
taking third place.
