Mt Dryden Time Trial
Sunday 25th November 2012

  Danny Monaghan

A nice southerly greeted Grampians Vets riders who fronted for the 12 kilometre time trial, to be followed by 30 kilometre scratch races, held near Mount Dryden, south west of Lake Lonsdale.

The southerly meant some variation of a side wind for the predominately east west out a back course.

Some surprise first time riders made a mockery of the handicappers seedings, with the outstanding ride of the day coming from Glenn Ford, riding his first time trial, and clocking 18m 55s, an average of just over 38kph, and 1m 26s under his age expected time. Andrew Reid flew past many other riders too on his way to clock 37kph, and finish 15s under his age expected time.

Danny Monaghan once again performed extremely well to clock the fastest time of the day, with 18m 35s, an average speed of 38.74kph, and 1m 17s under his expected age time.

Unfortunately Geoff Richards, who appeared to be on target for the best time of the day lost his chain and did not finish (too much bloody power, again, Geoff!!).

Most improved rider of the day was Geoff Hateley, who knocked 38 seconds off his previous best time, clocking 21m 35s.

Peter Wemyss also performed well to take 19 seconds off his previous best, and was 31 seconds under his age expected time.

Peter Wemyss also took out the A grade scratch race, from Glenn Ford, Danny Monaghan and Drew Heard.

Geoff Hateley took out the B grade event from Tony Rathgeber.
