Stuart King of the Sprint
Lake Lonsdale 67km Handicap
Sunday 7th November 2010

  Stuart King

Fine mild conditions with very little wind greeted the 16 strong field who lined up for the 67 kilometre double circuit of Lake Lonsdale.

With Meg Parnaby forgetting her shoes, Frank Stokes and Les Power set off from limit, completing most of the first lap before being joined by a now well shod Meggles.

However, one quarter of the way around the second lap, they were caught by the second limit riders Tom Eldridge, Damian Rabl, Stuart King and Peter Parnaby, with Meg and Frank Stokes jumping on the back as they went past.

This bunch kept up their charge, and with Meg doing the odd turn, kept well out of view of the chasing riders.

Second limit riders Sean Prins, Frank Kean, Dean Hayward and Peter Wemyss worked hard to catch the mid field riders Drew Heard, Alan Barnett, Crystal Wemyss and Danny Monaghan with about seven kilometres to go, but the seven minute start they gave to the second limit riders proved way to large.

Peter Parnaby led the sprint out a long way from home, giving Stuart King the perfect spring board to victory, but he had no competition as Eldridge had long since spent all his pennies. Peter Parnaby rolled home for second with Eldridge crossing the line for third.

The combined second and third scratch bunches finished 3 and a half minutes behind, with scratch rider Shane Clark finishing shortly afterward to take out fastest race time.
