Supervet’s Racing: Today, we celebrated September's Birthdays, and boy there are a lot of them! We especially wanted to acknowledge our two GSCC legends Brian Long and Gil Wright who both turned 90 years young! Dave Phillip brought a homemade cake that was generously baked by his wife; Dave did the decorating I was told. Marcus organised two fitting $90 vouchers kindly donated by the Supervets. Next week we will continue the celebration with a lunch at the Mt Moriac Hotel after the race. (Please contact Marcus if you haven’t already RSVP) Now to the racing, 24 km Southerly winds with 35 km gusts challenged the 20 racers today! A few escaped hibernation or holidays to join us. Welcome back Cummo, Bill, Les, Allan, and Lew! Kent led the charge with a 25 min head start to Mal Kimpton the lone Scratchman. Ross, Murray, and Tony followed 5 minutes later, with the other Mal, Terry, and Lew (Cheeseman) chasing. The winning bunch with Tina, Rob, Graeme, & David left the clubrooms with the crosswind making the journey challenging. Losing Dave at the last turn around the 3 continued with (Mr, Handicapper I’m not fit Cummo) and Jim hot on their tails. Poor Allan must have eaten and drunk too much at Lord Howe Island losing contact with his bunch. I’m sure the holiday was worth it. Les, David, and Tony were in hot pursuit but could not quite bridge the gap set by “Mr. Handicapper”. Bill and Laurie almost stay away from Mr. WooHoo (Mal) but the final turn toward the finish line saw Mal reel them in for this last race until he returns from Bali. As Graeme, Tina, and Rob hit the headwind it became too much for Graeme allowing Tina to cross the line first with Rob in the second position. Thank you Mr. Handicapper and all involved in making racing possible. HIbernation time for me, in the hopes that Mr. Handicapper will forget I won today.

Sunday 18th Ray Aldridge Handicap48km, Blackgate Rd, Forest Rd, finish Nobles Rd.Well to say it was windy is an understatement! With 22 entry's and 20 starters everyone earned a big kudos for having a good hot go. A day for the stronger riders Jesse Cropley showed us all again he is flying and in great form, starting solo off scratch 26 minutes behind the two limit riders Neil Maurer and Max Clayton and 2 and a half minutes behind three second scratch riders. With a super fats start with the strong westerly tail wind the out leg of Blackgate Road was a blast, not so much fun on the way back towards the club room and on towards Forest Rd, Misery Lane was at its best. The group gaps were reducing quite quickly with the stronger groups making up considerable time, Jesse was pushing hard into the wind as well as he could solo then catching the second scratch group before the dip along Forest Rd leaving Gary Blick behind with the handicapper giving Gary a challenging and testing day, to Gary's credit he finished the race strong as always. The limit and second limit groups combined with the pace being a bit two quick for Neil. Jesse, Shaun Thompson and Aaron D'arcy caught the third group along Forest before Gum Flats then with Brad Bullock these five rode through the field hitting the front on Larcombes Rd and staying together for a good tight finish. Well done to all who rode and a big thanks the the commissaire and all the marshals out on course in the wind.1st & FT Jesse Cropley 1:13:05 38.6km/h, 2nd Shaun Thompson (2.30), 3rd Aaron D'arcy (2.30). 4th Brad Bullock (6min), 5th David O'Dwyer (17min), 6th Tony Peach (17min), 7th Michael Papiernik (11min) 8th Tina Stenos (17min), 9th Paul Bubb (19min), 10th Huon Bertino (11min).

Supervets Racing: Another long-lost Supervet makes his comeback with a win! Congratulations Rob Masters. 2nd "Bridemaid" Terry Collie 3rd Mal Cole 8th and Fastest time "Mr. Woohoo" Mal KimptonThanks to all for making racing possible. A special Thanks to Richard Buckwell for the Super cool mug for the winner.Race report from third position. Leaving Melbourne in what was a chilly morning didn’t get any better on getting down to Paraparap it was still chilly, but it wasn’t raining and the wind didn’t feel too bad. I did have a spicy Laksa for tea with fresh prawns the night before so I believe I could match it, the wind that is. For the fourth week in a row I get the number 10, being a ten in my own mind I found it quite appropriate.The race was over the same course as last week and I didn’t manage it that well, who created hills?The race started with Ian Sumner leading off with a 7 minute break all by himself, it would be tough, Terry Collie, Rob Marshall and Mal Cole next, with Paul Bubb, Tina Stenos, Gordon Spargo, Graham Wilson(last weeks winner and David O Dwyer, next to go was Tony Peach and Jim Burzacott and in his tradional place Mal(the younger) Kimpton.Ian was maintaining his lead out the front but the next group were hot on his wheels especially Rob Masters who hadn’t races since June, Terry and Mal kept on plugging away trying to maintain a distance from the group behind, at this stage both Jim and Tony were keeping their distance from the flying orange Mal Kimpton.Rob was locked and loaded and was closing in on Ian and passed him before Lanyards, Terry and myself were also catching up with Ian as we went over the rise in Layards Rd, Terry was going strong as he passed Ian, Ian hooked on to his wheel and I tried to chase them down, Graeme, Tina and David were piling on the pressure from behind, Gordo and Paul were chasing but appeared to be doing it tough, Jim and Tony were working hard together,with the rocket at the back starting to eat in their lead.By the time we got back to Nobels, Rob was outta sight, nobody was going to catch him today, Terry and Mal were working hard together to stay in front of the chasing riders, Ian was staring to feel the pinch as we got to the base of the last climb Rob was about to pass the line and Terry had enough of me and showed his worth on the climb, I managed to hang on to third, finishing ahead of Tina, Graham, David and Ian, with Paul and Gordo following up, with the speed machine or the flying Orange coming home like a train with Tony and Jim finishing what was a great race. Congrats to Rob Master for first, the bridesmaid Terry Collie for another second and Mal the older hanging on for third and as usual Mal”the flying orange” Kimpton for fastest time. Thanks to the handicapper for making it a fairly close race alround, thanks to the ref and marshalls for making it a safe race. Thanks to Gil for the party pies heated up, thanks to Richard Buckwell for the 1st place mug & the lemons, thanks to John Watson for the donation of riding tops, 2xl would have been appropriate for my svelte body.Be safe, stay upright see all of you next week .Mal Cole ...
