On Wednesday June 18 Supervets raced three laps of the Paraparap circuit under cool but ideal conditions for a bike race. Once again we fielded 21 riders competing in seven groups and again a close finish could have been predicted. A strong group namely the four minute markers set a lively pace and drove the race. Phil Preston, Dave Phillips and Ross West joined the seven minute riders and the pace went up a notch. Close on their tail were the backmarkers Carl Judd and Peter Ladd who were not going to be denied a slice of the placings. A large bunch formed from most of the field in the final lap. First over the line was Carl Judd followed by Dave Phillips, Ray Clifford and Peter Ladd. Phil Preston despite an adjusted handicap performed well once again.
Results: 1. C Judd, 2. D Phillips, 3. R Clifford, 4. P Ladd, 5. B Clay, 6. P Preston, 7. J Hilsdon, 8. L Fitzsimons.
Fastest time: C Judd – 56.53.
