Saturday was a great day for a race, there were 39 riders that were at the start line ready for a 1:30pm start when one of riders discovered his tyre was going down and in the spirit of the way the club operates the race was postponed until the flat tyre was changed with some expert assistance from Peter Taylor and Barry Cole. This rider (Steve Crispin) went on to post the quickest time for the race of 1.06.10, well done Steve. There were some very good form shown by a good number of riders with 6 different grades represented within the 1st 10 riders with Alex Sommariva (E) having a great win, Tim Brown (C) second and Brian Peak (D) third.
Kirsti McVay was the first woman across the line with a great ride with Jan Koehler having a strong ride to come second. This race has been sponsored by Barry Cole and his family for some time and Barry was at the race to present the trophies.
I would like to thank Daniel Grillo, Peter Klein, Donald Desmet, Rainer Wilton, Graham Hendrie and Tom Roberts for doing their part to make this race a very successful race.
