The weather had a marked effect on the number of riders willing to brave the elements at the Gippsland Championships, staged at Poowong on Sunday. There were six Leongatha members who competed; Brett Franklin, Neil White, Kevin Feely, Phil Hanley, David Supple and Austin Timmins. Brett claimed the Masters 1 win in the combined Elite & Masters 1,2,3 grades and David Supple third in the Masters 4+. In the junior event with only two participating, both riders crashed-out on a wet road descent. It was Austin’s second fall of the week! (plus coming of the rollers) Cyrus Monk taking out the Elite title.
