Strong Man Prins Dominates Sprint
Rifle Butts Short Course Handicap
Sunday 22nd August 2010

  Sean Prins

Grampian Veteran cyclists were spared the recent lashings of rain and gale force winds as they tackled Horsham’s 46km Rifle Butts Circuit on Sunday.

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.

In the sprint to the line, Prins edged out Heard with Elliott taking third place.










Looking for some company to share the kilometres with?

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