Trackie Perkins takes first A grade win

By Mal Sawford

Rain throughout the morning saw small fields across all grades for weekend racing, with round 5 of the Victorian Women's Series hit hardest with only 9 women braving the cold and slippery conditions in both grades.

Under 19 track star Shane Perkins showed his class ahead of next weekend's famous Austral Wheelrace taking his first A Grade road win, while Kirsty Bortolin (The Freedom Machine) dominated the small Elite Women's field, winning both intermediate sprints as well as the race to build unassailable leads in the overall and sprint competition for the series. Kerrie Howard took out the Sport Women event.
