Strong Winds Make Time Trial a Trial
Mt Dryden 12km Course
Sunday 23rd September 2012

  Jason Shipcott

Jason Shipcott didn’t seem to notice the strong gusty wind as he scorched over the 12 kilometre out and back time trial course, clocking only 10 seconds slower than his last ride on the same course under much better conditions.

Jason clocked 18 minutes and 2 seconds to average just under 40 kph, taking out the fastest time of the day, and also beating his age expected time by 1 minute and 10 seconds.

Crystal Wemyss also put in another great ride, averaging 37.7 kph to record the second fastest time, and also beat her age expected time by 1 minute and 9 seconds. She also beat her husband Peter, who averaged 37.15 kph, and finished 4th.

Shaun Blackie, riding his first time trial, recorded a very strong 37.34 kph, to finish 6 seconds faster than his age expected time and with the third fastest time of the day.

Unfortunately defending champion Geoff Richards, who pipped Shipcott in the last club time trial by only a few seconds, called in sick, so the battle between the two will have to wait until another day.

Full results can be downloaded here.

After the time trial, a 32 kilometre scratch race was held along the Green Hole and Sandbar Roads.

Rod Hetherington took out an easy win in the final sprint in A grade, after various break away attempts in the final stages all failed. Peter Wemyss was second ahead of Jason Shipscott.

The B grade riders left it to the final sprint, with Daryl Elliott just taking out the win right on the line by about a tyre from Tony Rathgeber, with Laura White third.

The C grade riders also left the battle until the line, with Geoff Hateley winning easily from Peter Mayo and Meg Parnaby.
