Riverland Cycling Club
Winkie, South Australia, June 19, 2005
The 11th round for the Riverland Cycling Club winter race season was held at Winkie on Sunday in memory of the wife of John Crisp, who has had a long association with the club as time keeper and marshal.
A north-westerly wind meant the groupings had to rely on teamwork to try to increase their allocated average times in the handicapped 50km race. The first group off the mark of Ruth Stout, Josh Steele and Angelo Ylia averaged 30.5 km/h which was enough for them to stay in the lead and cross the line ahead of the others. Strout showed her endurance power and sped away in the sprint for victory, followed closely by Steele.
Hamish MacKirdy and Lee Stevens started the race in the scratch group and managed
to catch most of the riders in front of them on the last of the five laps, which
made for a very exciting dash to the line. Gordon Lawton held his position ahead
of the scratch riders with only metres to spare, with MacKirdy out-sprinting
Stevens to win the fastest time for the race, recording a phenomenal 38.5 km/hr
