Klauss Refinding his Form
Concongella 46km Handicap
Sunday 14th October 2012

  Wayne Klauss

Ararat cyclist Wayne Klauss signaled a return to form when he sprinted to victory last Sunday in the Grampians Vets 46 kilometre Concongella handicap.

After an extended period off the bike due to work commitments, Klauss has been back in training for the last month, and is starting to regain some of his old form.

As part of the second scratch bunch, Klauss rode off five and three quarter minutes along with Crystal Wemyss, Drew Heard and Daryl Elliott. With the riders setting a good pace from the start, they made up a significant amount of time on the twelve minute riders Peter Mayo, Alan Barnett and Danny Monaghan over the initial hills.

Out in front, limit riders Meg Parnaby and John McIntyre were working well and looked to be in with a chance after the first 30 kilometres, at the turn back onto the Navarre Road. At this point the twelve minute riders were struggling and a few kilometres down the road were caught by the second scratch riders.

Further back the large scratch bunch of Peter Wemyss, Sean Prins, Rod Hetherington and visiting Bendigo Vets riders Rick McIntosh, Shane Wall and Dan Gooch were struggling to live up to their expected form, and were still well behind.

Over the last of the hills on the Navarre road, the limit riders were battling to hold off the now combined second scratch and twelve minute riders, with the catch coming two kilometres from home.

In the sprint to the line, Wayne Klauss got the better of Drew Heard, with Daryl Elliott coming in third.

Shane Wall took out fastest race time of one hour and twelve minutes.
