Seems a lot of Vets are keeping their powder dry for tomorrow's combined event with Northern Vets at Emu Creek.
.Just 10 riders started in today's secret handicap individual time trial at Woodstock, none of whom were the specialists who often come to these events. The handicapper had a tough time trying to compare the varied level of commitment, equipment and experience, particularly in light of a brisk cross wind on the out and back course. Justice prevailed nevertheless when Gary Ford (5 min) improved out of sight from his last ITT outing to win on an adjusted time of 34 m 34 sec from another big improver in Andrea Wilson (10 min) and Maryborough powerhouse Ross McDonald (4 min). Geoff Bennett recorded the fastest time of 37 min 46 sec. off scratch.
Should be a great race tomorrow with about a dozen visitors from Northern expected.
