Parnaby Goes Solo
Concongella 49km Handicap
Sunday 3rd April 2011

  meg
  Meg Parnaby

Riding off limit, Grampians Vets rider Meg Parnaby put in a gutsy solo ride to hold off the rest of the field and take out the 49 kilometre Concongella handicap last Sunday.

With riders also taking part in the Murray to Moyne the same weekend, the reduced field meant that Parnaby had no one to share the limit mark. Undaunted, she set herself a solid pace from the start and managed to hold it despite the hills and strong southerly wind.

Further back, the 3 minute riders Gary Brumby, Drew Heard, Brian Howlett and Daryl Elliott were making good time, but the scratch riders Drew Gray, Dean Hayward, Shaun Blackie and Peter Parnaby had them in their sights.

At the Joel Joel turn, with 18 kilometres to go, Meg Parnaby still had a good lead, while the scratch riders were 50 seconds behind the 3 minute riders, and making steady gains until the two groups combined with 8 kilometres to go.

Working together, these two groups still failed to catch Meg Parnaby, who surprised even herself with her form, and finished several minutes ahead of the chasing riders.

Dean Hayward took out the sprint for second place, with Gary Brumby third.

Hayward also took out the fastest race time of 1 hour and 19 minutes.
