Rathgeber revels in Sultry Conditions
Rifle Butts Short Course
Sunday 5th December 2010

  Tony Rathgeber

Very warm humid conditions proved to be a real challenge for the small field of Grampians Vets riders who fronted for the 46 kilometre Rifle Butts short course, held near Horsham last Sunday.

Meg Parnaby and Les Power led the field away, but their 9 minute advantage was soon eaten up by the 5 minute riders, Peter Mayo, Tony Rathgeber and Tom Eldridge, who caught them towards the end of Rifle Butts Road.

Picking Parnaby up as they went past, they headed off along the highway on the return journey towards Horsham.

Scratch riders Drew Heard, Peter Parnaby and Alan Barnett set off at a good speed, but the humidity got to Parnaby after about 15 kilometres, and he dropped off, making the task for the others more difficult.

The leading bunch, pulled along by the power of Rathgeber, was making good time, and after the turn onto Golf Course Road, was still well ahead.

With about 3 kilometre to go, Rathgeber powered away from Meg Parnaby and Eldridge, going on to score a comfortable win from Eldridge with Parnaby third.

Alan Barnett was first scratch rider home to take out fastest time.








Looking for some company to share the kilometres with?

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