Shipcott right on circuit point race
BURRUMBEET was the location for Eureka Cycling’s graded points races on the 6.4-kilometre kermesse circuit last Sunday.
The strong south east breeze made each leg of the square circuit tough.
Jason Shipcott was brilliant in dictating the Division 1 race to his strengths. Division 2 saw a hard three-way fight where Ash Burke was strong enough to claim the victory.
Brian Ure was on parade in Division 3 and easily accounting for his rivals, while in Division 4 Sue Parker made another victorious return to racing, showing tactical brilliance to take the win in her first ever points race.
