Chris “Boy” Jones, Swannie and Phil Thomas headed down to Gunnedah and did pretty well in what looks like a full field. The Gunnedah to Tamworth is a graded scratch race with Swannie in E, Phil in F and “Boy” Jones in D.
The boy managed a 13th in D grade, in what was the second bunch to finish the race he looks to have been swamped on the line.
Swannie got 3rd in E grade by a scant 8 seconds (and a whopping 2 minute gap to the 4th place rider) and Phil Thomas lost a bunch sprint to come in 5th in F grade after getting snaked by a straggler from E. Well done everybody, all three riders were at the heads of their races right to the finish.
(and yes, that’s my younger sister winning the WM2 in E grade with an overall 10th place and yes she’s faster than me and no I don’t want to talk about it)
Yes Dave I had a chat to your sister and she wanted to talk about it – she had a very solid ride
