33rd Hamilton to Port Fairy

April 13, 2014

52 senior starters, 15 U11/13 and 7 U15/17 made the annual trek to Hamilton for the 33rd running of the Doug Pettingill Memorial – Hamilton to Port Fairy Road Race.

Conditions were windy with a side, head wind keeping everyone honest.  Limit headed off at 1:00, meaning scratch would be underway at 2:00.

There was a lot of banter on the start line with with ex scratch men riding on out marks.  A couple may have even been there in 1982 for the first running of the race.

The 5 minute bunch was travelling strongly engulfing most of the field by the Heywood, Woolsthorpe crossroads.  This made a bunch of 25 with ten chasing (scratch and Second scratch)  The leaders set a hectic pace for the remainder of the race slowly dropping one or two more in the final kilometres.

The bunch eased at Peter’s Pass, jockeying for good wheels in the sprint.  As they navigated the final bend, the lead out train had begun.  The sprint was fast and furious with Matt Burchell taking out the honours.  The sprint finish was not for the faint hearted with a spill 100m from the line.  Our condolences go out to Mark McLaren (Hamilton), Scott Waters (Mt Gambier) and Brett Creasy (Portland). We hope to see you all on the bikes again soon.

Scratch rolled into the finish with Simon Burchell taking the honours with the time.  The fastest time was under two hours for the 82km.  Neil Hyland still holds the record that was set in 1982, which was closer to one and a half hours.

Congratulations should also go out to Wal Paton for taking out the two sprints along the way.

 

Thankyou to all who assisted in helping make for a successful day.

This weekend (Saturday12th October) there will be no racing at Port Fairy.  We are hoping many of you will head to Warrnambool to cheer on the riders after their gruelling 250+km race from Werribee.  Also to cheer on the veterans who are racing from Camperdown to Warrnambool.

Then return on Sunday to cheer those riding the Shipwreck Coast.

Saturday night the is a dinner at Images. This event hands been going for many years and is a great catch with many stories to be told.
