Colac Veteran Cycling Club

The Premier Club of the Southwest

April 2019


April 14th 2019

The Colac Vets had a field of eighteen riders for their club race.

Riders raced in warm conditions with strong easterly winds.

The 16.00 minute trio combined well with Gerard Hickey leading the charge to reel in the two front markers with 5Km to go.

Hickey comfortably won the sprint in the Factory Road finish ahead of co markers Gary Legg and Paul Allen.

The third scratch riders had caught the 12.00 minute riders and came in two and a half minutes behind the winner with Damian Luppino leading this group in.

The two scratch riders had caught and left behind the second scratch riders to come in a few seconds further back with Tony Luppino taking fastest time over Gavin O’Brien.

There will be no club race over the Easter break.
