Gvcc held the Hendry’s cycling combine with riders from colac and warrnambool today in perfect conditions. With 68 starters the large bunches stayed stretched out for most of the race in the calm conditions. Third limit (19min group) combined well for the day catching the two groups in front on the last lap along Hendy Main Rd. They had some very tough attacks up misery Lane for last time breaking up the leading feild. The winner Brett Worrell and the forever young & best dressed Dennis Sonnogan broke away for well deserved win and second placing.. Scratch rode very tough and fast for the whole race but only being able to catch 2nd scratch. Nick Kennedy from colac won fastest time.
