The threat of rain showers at Heffron Park shortened the length of races on Saturday 25 October 2003 at the weekly Randwick Botany Cycling Club races. Luckily, racing was completed before a thunderstorm rolled through.

Randwick Botany rider Liam Kelly was the star of A-Grade, winning the 24km race in a time of 36min 5sec at an average speed of over 40kmh. Chris Guillan from the Southern Cross club continued his good form winning B-Grade. Andy Matthews (Randwick Botany) scored a second place in his first race in B-Grade. Matthews is booked in for a Cyclefit with Steve Hogg at Pedal Pushers Bike Shop next week, so A-Grade may be on the cards in the near future.

In the junior 2km Time Trial, Matthew Guillan (Southern Cross) recorded a time of 3min 29sec. Randwick Botany riders Tamas Bykerk, Luke Davison and Tom Patton all recorded similar times, around the 3min 36sec mark.

In other club news, Randwick Botany Cycling Club member Shaun Higgerson, aged 18, finished 30th in a field of 69 in Stage 13 and final stage of the Herald Sun Tour in Ballarat, Victoria on Sunday 26 October 2003. Higgerson finished 44th in the overall General Classification. Riding for the FRF Couriers Team, this is his first attempt at this grueling event, which started in Melbourne CBD on 16 October 2003.
