Frank Keen on the Hills
Quarry Road Graded Scratch Races
Sunday 5th February 2011

  Frank Kean

Frank Kean found the hilly course to his liking last Sunday, taking out the Grampians Vets A grade event.

Recent flood damage to the Greenhole Road near Lake Lonsdale forced a change of route, with riders tackling a 44 kilometre out and back course along the hilly Sandbar Road.

Starting on the Mount Drummond Road at the Western Highway, riders proceeded along the Sandbar Road before turning onto the Illawarra Road, turning just before the Halls Gap road to return the way they had come.

A grade rider Frank Kean launched an attack on the Sandbar Hill, 12 kilometres into the race, taking Peter Wemyss and Dean Hayward with him, splitting the bunch into two. With the three leaders working hard to maintain their break, a concerted effort by Crystal Wemyss, Drew Heard and Daryl Elliott failed to regain the lost ground

A solid pace up McCracken’s Hill on the return journey dislodged Hayward, leaving Frank Kean and Peter Wemyss to fight out the race. Another attack by Kean over the final hills failed to shake Wemyss, so the battle continued to the line.

In the final sprint Kean was too strong, taking out the race from Wemyss, with Hayward coming home third.

In the B grade event, Geoff Richards powered the bunch along for much of the race, but was outsprinted at the end by Tony Lloyd. Richards was a close second with Tom Eldridge third.

In the C grade event, Peter Mayo got the better of Meg Parnaby on the line, with Damian Rabl taking out third place.
