Armidale place getters (L-R): Geoff Straub (1st, A grade), Pat Ainsworth (1st, C grade), Angus Swan (3rd, U17)
Angus and Cody psyche themselves up for a big race
Like coiled springs …
And they’re off!
Straub in the winning A grade break
The rest of A grade
B grade, with Armidale riders L-R: Dave Munday (riding for Milram in the pale blue), Peter Wilkinson, Bill Mara, and Mick Hoult. Nick Myhill was further towards the front out of shot.
The C grade bunch
Pat fuels up before flying up Mt Browne
Sensational! Pat wins C grade from Vanessa McDonald of Coffs Harbour (left of picture)
The world’s dumbest bike racer
D grade with big PC powering along at the front (and Bruce loafing at the back as per usual)
Well done Pat – great looking sprint to take out one of the hardest races around. Obviously Wilko is claiming the win from all that training you’ve been doing with him! I saw you were up the pointy end in a couple of state races as well.
