Supervets raced on Wednesday July 30 over three laps of the Paraparap circuit under strong north westerly winds. It was pleasing however to see the numbers improving on past weeks despite the weather conditions. The race unfolded into a show of strength from the middle markers. John Hilsdon from 5 minutes rode a strong race alongside the back markers David Pike, Rob Nicholls and Carl Judd. The five and nine minute bunches were not to be easybeats however and John Bell led a strong bunch up Forrest Road in the final lap. He was well supported by the ever reliable Ross West, Tony Spark, and Barry Clay. The welcome return of Richard Buckwell added his usual strength and competitiveness as the bunch headed into the wind and the finish line. David Pike was the first over the line from Rob Nicholls and John Hilsdon. We welcome the return of David Pike, Rob Nicholls and Richard Buckwell to our Wednesday races.
Results: 1. D Pike, 2. R Nicholls, 3. J Hilsdon, 4. C Judd, 5. R West, 6. T Spark, 7. J Bell, 8. B Clay.
Fastest time: D Pike – 1.08.52.
