34 riders registered across 5 grades  to take part in the Mend Physio Myross Bush points race on Saturday.

The day was mostly fine with only a small amount of rain catching us at the end of the event.

I think some potential riders had looked at the forecast and ridden in the morning missing what was a very good day of racing.

The largest grade was B grade and on the final 2 laps Aaron Sinclair and Gary Smith gapped the rest of the group and took the sprints with the last sprint being double points.

Hamish Keast in A grade rode very strongly all day and ended with a perfect score winning all the sprints.

Many thanks to the race sponsor “Mend Physio” - Gabby Vermunt and her crew put on a B-B-Q, arranged for the coffee lady to be there and gave extra prise money for each grade.

Huge thanks to all the usual helpers on the day and to Gabby and Mend Physio for their generous support.
