15 hardy riders turned up for the 80km handicap race which started and finished at the Gorge Road Country Club. A strong breeze and hilly conditions confronted the riders which left in 4 bunches for the two lap circuit race.

At the end of the 1st lap all bar the scratch bunch had taken just over half the handicap time off the bunch in front. At the finish we saw Kate Wilson dig it in on the final lap and take the win in a fine display of solo riding from the limit mark in a time of 2.50.10.

Break caught second break just after Letterbox hill, but the combined group couldn’t catch the group in front with Alan Milne taking second and Shirlene Rollo taking out the third placing. Next to finish was Red Burnett taking fastest time in a time of 2.12.05.

Thanks go to all the people who helped out on the day.
