Fos­ter wins in best time

The Cobram Courier - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

Round two of the McDon­alds Time Trial Su­per Se­ries was held on Satur­day in sunny but windy con­di­tions.

Over a tough dis­tance of 28 km, 12 riders took up the chal­lenge to gain more points in the se­ries.

Wayde Fos­ter once again showed his re­cent im­prove­ment by tak­ing out the race on hand­i­cap. Rid­ing in 49 min­utes one sec­ond, it was a mas­sive per­sonal best by more than two min­utes for Fos­ter.

Sec­ond on hand­i­cap went to round one win­ner and new rider Troy Alexan­der. His time of 42:09 (39.8 km/h) was ex­cep­tion­ally quick and con­sid­er­ing he has only just taken up com­pet­i­tive cy­cling makes this even more re­mark­able.

Third went to Fin­ley farmer Heath White, who also rode a per­sonal best on the day.

Fastest time of the day went to Club Cham­pion Travis Lindhe who posted a slick 38:06 time (44 km/h av­er­age). Lindhe is train­ing for next week­end’s Tour of Bright and will be happy with this time. Hand­i­cap or­der with ac­tual times in brack­ets as fol­lows: Wayde Fos­ter (49:01), 1; Troy Alexan­der (42:09), 2; Heath White (44:59), 3; Daryl Frost (49:30), 4; Nic Tor­ney (42:19), 5; Rene Mol (51:23), 6; Steve Gem­mill (55.13), 7; Myles Hig­gins

(45:58), 8; Char­lie White (42:55), 9; Travis Lindhe (38:06), 10; Gary Smith (45:38), 11; Bob Nichols (48.40), 12.

Satur­day’s race saw the end of an era with the club now hold­ing races on Sun­days at 10 am.

Or­gan­is­ers are hope­ful for more par­tic­i­pa­tion with this new time slot.

Please note there will be no race next week­end with rac­ing to re­turn on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 9, for round three of the su­per se­ries.

The fol­low­ing week­end, Sun­day, De­cem­ber 16, will see the high­light of Co­bramBa­rooga Cy­cling Club’s rac­ing cal­en­dar with the Ge­orge Good­win Me­mo­rial to be run. All li­censed riders wel­come.
