Wayne Klauss

Ararat rider Wayne Klauss stormed to victory in the closing stages of the Grampians Vets 44 kilometre handicap, held from Fyans Creek Road, near Halls Gap, last Sunday.

Part of the six strong scratch group, Klauss didn’t miss a beat, putting in some strong turns in the closing stages of the race to help close the gap to the leading riders when they finally came into sight.

Chasing ten and half minutes to the limit riders, Klauss, along with fellow scratch riders Sean Prins, Dean Hayward, Glenn Ford, Geoff Richards and Peter Parnaby had to push to the limit to close the gap on the leading bunches, with the calm conditions favouring the limit riders.

However, with 12 kilometres to go, the five minute riders Stuart King and Tom Eldridge (having lost Tony Rathgeber a few kilometres earlier with a puncture) came into view in the distance. It took another eight kilometres to reel them in, leaving the limit riders Damian Rabl, Peter Mayo, Meg Parnaby and Geoff Hateley still some distance up the road.

With stong men Klauss and Prins doing some big turns out front, the limit riders were caught just over a kilometre from home, leaving a big bunch sprint to decide the race outcome.

Hayward did the honours early on with a strong lead out before Richards took over, but 150 metres from home Klauss took off, and was too strong for the chasing Glenn Ford, holding on to win with Stuart King third ahead of Sean Prins.

Wayne Klauss also recorded fastest race time with one hour, 10 minutes forty-two seconds.
