Handicap Road Race - Elimbah - Saturday 7th July 2012
This is how I saw it from the lead car. Soon after half way through the first lap after the turnaround, 2 riders got away over the hills on Powell Rd, getting up to 40 seconds ahead along Twin View Rd where there was a heavy and windy shower. 3km later it was down to 20 secs, and then by the turnaround at the end of lap one they had 10 seconds. Soon after the turnaround they were caught, the lead bunch now consisting of around 12 riders.
The third group who left 4 minutes behind GO had caught the two leading groups and formed a strong group including Paul Worrall and Brittany Dutton from the 2 min group. This group stayed together and looked like most were pulling turns. There were a few stragglers riding on their own and then 3 minutes behind was the 5th group (9 mins) and the combined chopping block and scratch group were 7 mins behind the leaders.
On the second lap there were a few more showers and windy conditions, at at the last turn around (46km mark) there were 2 riders 1m30 behind the lead pack of 12, then 8 riders mostly from the 9 minute group at 2 mins behind, a few solo riders or 2 together and then scratch/chopping block 5 minutes behind.
The first 4 all came from the strong group of 12, Paul and Brittany doing very well to finish strongly with them. The 9 minute group finished around 1m50s behind the winners with scratch arriving 3m14s with a fastest time by Gary Kristensen.
