Longford-Campbell Classic

Tasmania, October 12, 2003

By Michael Donovan

Former Australian rowing champion Glen Myler, in only his first major veteran cycling race, won the Doherty Hotels-sponsored Longford-Campbell race.

The 65km race, conducted by the St.Lukes Health Vets Club, attracted 67 starters from all parts of Tasmania. In perfect conditions, a bunch of over 30 riders merged together with less than 10kms to race, with Myler first to take his chances, attacking on a small hill and holding on to beat 15 survivors from the original bunch.

Philip Bishop, a previous winner of the event, put in a top ride to take second place with a fine sprint. Jamie Perry continued his good form to take fastest time from Laurie Venn.

Cyclists of veteran age that are interested in racing can now take out a licence which will give them 15 months of competion for a 12 month registration. For any inquiries, please phone: 6394 8183.
