The sec­ond round of the Mc­Don­ald’s Su­per Time Trial Se­ries was con­ducted on Satur­day over a 28 km course.

Ten en­tries were re­ceived with some in­ter­est­ing re­sults posted.

Four PBs were recorded in the windy con­di­tions. Gif­ford Crosth­waite im­proved by the huge mar­gin of one minute and 48 sec­onds, while not far be­hind were Terry Walm­s­ley, Nick Tor­ney and his grand­fa­ther Rene Mol.

Walm­s­ley im­proved by 3.5 km/h on his pre­vi­ous ef­fort over 15 km.

Travis Lindhe was again fastest with an out­stand­ing time of 37 min­utes and 54 sec­onds, just 53 sec­onds off his course record.

Chris­tian Mc­Don­ald also broke the mag­i­cal 40-minute bar­rier with a time of 39.01 (37.01).

Nick Tor­ney still hasn’t achieved his goal of av­er­ag­ing 40 km/h over this TT course, but went very close with an aver­age speed of 39.4 km/h.

Shep­par­ton su­per vet­eran Myles Hig­gins posted an ex­cel­lent time of 45.36 (38.07).

For­mer iron­man Gary Smith had a time of 46.22 (37.20), , while Stephen Gem­mill (54.09/37.28) and Jer­ilderie’s Bren­dan Crim­mins (59.53/38.24) also com­peted.

Crim­mins, who raced with the club over many years, re­cently made a come­back to the sport and will im­prove with more rac­ing under his belt.

The win­ner on the day was Crosth­waite, who was de­lighted to re­ceive the $20 prize. Lu­cra­tive prize­money will be paid out at the end of the six-race se­ries, with the first 10 placeget­ters shar­ing the spoils.

On Satur­day a 28 km hand­i­cap will be con­ducted over the usual course next to the MON fac­tory in Ba­rooga start­ing at 1.30 pm. En­try is $5.
