Mersey Valley - Devonport Cycling Club

Tasmania, January 29, 2003

Atkins shines on the road too

By Rod Morris

Track star Gareth Atkins quickly showed his prowess on his road bike in the Mersey Valley - Devonport Cycling Club's second road race of the 2003 season.

On a user-friendly course in the Forth-Wilmot region, Atkins beat a class field in the Open section, covering the 26 km race in a slick 34 minutes.

Atkins, fresh from a solid track summer, beat promising youngster Kaidan Homan, while Tasmanian Institute of Sport rider, David Klyne took third.

In the combined junior - veteran's category, Devonport 16-year-old Natasha Mapley continued her good form, with a sound victory ahead of Ulverstone 15-year-old Carrie Price, while Andrew Dolan had to be content with third.

Next week, the MVDCC will conduct track racing on Tuesday night, just before a delegates meeting and then on Wednesday night, will resume road racing at 6.30 p.m.
