The Colac Vets had a small field of eleven riders for their last and just the third monthly medal for the year.
Riders raced in warm and windy conditions.
The three scratchmen set a cracking pace to catch the 4-minute bunch after just 20Km.
Only two other riders, from the second scratch bunch, were able to stay with the scratchmen.
On the climb up Lineen’s hill before the finish, two scratchmen cleared away with Andrew Pownceby taking the win over Tony Luppino.
Ralph Iselt led the next three riders in to take third place.
