Cy­cling back af­ter a break

The Cobram Courier - - SPORT -

Af­ter a few weeks off, cy­cling re­turned to Ba­rooga for a 28 km hand­i­cap in beau­ti­ful con­di­tions.

The club wel­comed new mem­ber Corey Beat­son from Nu­murkah as well as Bren­don Crim­mons, re­turn­ing from a cou­ple of years’ ab­sence.

Crim­mons was the lone limit marker (10 mins) fol­lowed by Neville Wilks and Rene Mol (7 mins) and the five-strong scratch bunch con­sist­ing of two sets of broth­ers, Robert and Der­mot Ni­chols, Char­lie and Heath White and young Nick Tor­ney (0 mins).

All bunches worked well to­gether with the strong scratch bunch catch­ing all be­fore them by Stil­lards Hill on the re­turn jour­ney.

With 1 km to go Robert Ni­chols tried his luck with a long range ef­fort but was reeled in, only to try again with an early sprint.

He was rounded up, how­ever, by the fast fin­ish­ing Heath White in the last 50 m.

Third place went to Fin­ley triath­lete Char­lie White, fourth to Nick Tor­ney and Der­mot Ni­chols round­ing out the top five.

White’s win­ning time was a quick 42.05 mins.

Mol and Wilks were a fur­ther 1.45 be­hind with a time of 50.50 mins with Crim­mons at 58.22 mins in an ex­cel­lent re­turn ride.
