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.
