Windmill site of WARS battle
BRILLIANT sunshine bathed the Windmill circuit east of Learmonth on Sunday 20th June for the third round of Eureka Cycling Club’s Winter Aggregate Race Series.
A light southerly breeze kept the air chilled and ensured the roads stayed damp for 52.5 kilometres of graded division racing.
Roger McMillan returned to the winner’s circle in Division 4 with a well-timed sprint.
Division 1 saw Tim Canny and Dayne Pearce engaged in an epic straight line drag race to the chequered flag.
Tony Mirabella packed enough punch to land the Division 2 victory at his 325th race for Eureka.
Division 3 contested a points race and tactics were aplenty as each rider attempted to outsmart the field.
Tim Sinclair and Patrick Garner topped the points table as the last lap started – they broke away from the field and contested their third head-to-head sprint to decide the overall race victory.
Next Sunday the club will stage the prestigious Charlie Braszell Handicap on the Mount Misery circuit. The race finishes with a mile long climb, which always ensures a worthy winner.
