Randwick Botany CC
Heffron Park, Maroubra, January 31, 2004
McDonald wins A-grade by a country mile
By Tony Horneman
One hundred riders registered for racing at Heffron Park Maroubra on Saturday 31 January 2004 under clear skies and on-shore easterly breeze.
Peter McDonald (Randwick Botany) was the star of the day, with another solo breakaway in A-Grade. The crowd cheered McDonald home, who finished 43 seconds ahead of the bunch. He averaged 42 km/h during the race. Klayten Smith (Clarence Street), who finished ninth in the recent BMC Software Australian Open Road Championships Road Race in Ballarat, finished second, followed by Matthew Lucas, Brendan Ingram, Roger Crawford and Robert Cater, wearing his new Team FRF Couriers jersey and knicks.
No junior racing this week due to the School Holidays. Junior racing returns to Heffron Park on Saturday 7 February 2004, with a new junior race program.
