Blackie Returns to Form
Fyans Creek 51km Handicap
Sunday 2nd September 2012

  Shaun Blackie

Ararat cyclist Shaun Blackie signaled a return to form when he powered to a narrow win over Stuart King in last Sundays Grampians Vets 51 kilometre Fyans Creek handicap.

After a quieter few months recently, Blackie is back in training and the results showed last Sunday, when he pulled the four minute bunch to a decisive win. With the aid of Drew Heard, Daryl Elliott, Glenn Ford, Stuart King and Les Dunn, Blackie made sure the chasing scratch riders Peter Wemyss, Sean Prins, Rod Hetherington and visiting Ballarat rider Paul Humphrey had a difficult time making up ground.

At the half way mark, the chasing scratch riders were still two minutes forty seconds behind, and struggling to find their usual form, while the four minute riders had made up a large part of their fifteen minute deficient on limit riders Meg Parnaby and Peter Mayo.

On the return journey the limit riders were caught with about ten kilometres to go, with the four minute riders continuing to hold off the scratch riders who were still well in arrears.

In the sprint for the line, Shaun Blackie held off a charging Stuart King by half a wheel, with Glenn Ford a further half wheel behind.

The scratch riders finished over a minute behind with Paul Humphrey taking out the fastest race time of one hour and nineteen minutes, ahead of Sean Prins.
