Cloverlea 13th May 2017


‘C’ grade (60 event images)

There were 12 Leongatha riders who made the journey across to Darnum on Saturday for the first of a Gippsland clubs tri-series sponsored by Warragul City Motors.   Warragul hosted this first event of the series with graded scratch races on the Cloverlea circuit. An excellent number of riders (reportedly 58) were out on what was a good day for going for a ride.


Representing Leongatha in A grade over five laps of the circuit were Will Lumby and Harrison McLean.  IMG_2084Will was looking good all day, only to be beaten by Shane Stiles in the hotly contested sprint.  Harrison came in with the bunch in fourth place after putting in a solid ride.

IMG_1966In B grade over four laps of the circuit were Kevin Feely and Dylan Adams.  Dylan finished with the main bunch, but was out of the placings.  Kevin unfortunately lost contact with the bunch about half way through the race.

IMG_1950C grade also rode four laps and had a large field of riders in which Leongatha riders Bernadette Fitzgerald, Brad Bouquet, Damien King, Mark Bensley, Michael Park and Morgan Barnes were competing.  All were struggling against their opposition and didn’t figure in the final out-come.

IMG_1991D grade riding three laps of the circuit with Kaleb Jans and Peter McLean had only six riders. Kaleb rode with determination against his senior rivals and finished in fourth, but was nearly 2mins down on the winner.
