The Colac Vets had fifteen riders for their first handicap race for the year.

Riders race with very strong winds.

The two front markers were out of contention early in the race by taking a wrong turn.

Tony Luppino started off with a dominant performance.

He along with co marker Gavin O’Brien, who had done a 75Km race the day before, chased down and caught a bunch of six riders by the 30Km mark.

In form Nick Brown, from the second scratch bunch, was the only rider to stay with the scratchmen until the finish.

The ten minute bunch was caught with 7Km to go with only Glenn Paton being able to hang in for the next couple of kilometres.

Luppino claimed the win with a challenge from Brown in the sprint to the line with O’Brien in third Place.
