Sunday 30th January 2011

Grampians Vets cyclist Peter Wemyss took the hills in his stride, leading the scratch riders to victory in the 49 kilometre handicap last Sunday.

Held over 7 laps of the short Armstrong course, Wemyss was the main powerhouse behind the bunch, and with the assistance of Rod Hetherington and Peter Parnaby, had the 3 minute riders Tony Lloyd, Stuart King, Tom Eldridge and Glenn Ford in their sights half way through the race.

Meanwhile the limit riders Meg Parnaby, Shirley Hetherington, Peter Mayo and Les Power were still well clear.

However, it was on the hills that the real differences between the bunches became apparent. With Peter Wemyss doing some massive turns at the front up the hills, the scratch riders managed to reel in the 3 minute riders soon after the middle of the race, picking up King and Ford as they passed.

Charging on, they caught the limit riders on the turn for the final lap, with Wemyss going on to take out the sprint for a well earned victory, ahead of Glenn Ford and Rod Hetherington.

Wemyss also recorded the fasted race time of 1 hour and 22 minutes, averaging about 35.9kph for the hilly course.
