Broadford-Seymour Cycling Club
Seymour, Victoria, July 2, 2005
Saturday's event was a 50km Teams' Time Trial raced on the Mangalore-Avenel-Seymour course. 25 riders made up the three competing teams - Ron Burgess led off with his 'Green' team of nine riders as the 'Gold' team, captained by Alan Adams with eight riders followed, with the 'Blue' team of eight riders, led by Shayne Kirby, last to start.
The 'Gold' of Hibberd, Kevin Simmons, Ditullio, Bartlett, Bender, Tubbs and Mulquiney scorched the course early and had a 90-second lead at the Avenel check point from Burgess' 'Green', with Kirby's 'Blue' two minutes further back. With a tailwind and slower riders being able to drop off for the final 20km, the speed of all teams lifted.
Both trailing teams took time off the leader, with the Gold team hanging on to win the event by just five seconds with a time of 1:17:13 from Ron Burgess's 'Green' team.
The Club races next Sunday (10/7) at Murrindindi for the Ted Kirby Trophy. This event starts at 10pm from the Murrindindi turnoff on the Yea-Yarra Glen road.
Presentations will be at the 'Pit Stop' in Yea following the event.
