Echuca-Moama Cycling Club competitors competed at Trewin's Hill recently.June 3, 2014 3:24am
The only hill within a 50km radius of Echuca-Moama was the course for Echuca-Moama Cycling Club’s recent road race.
The under nines to under 11s had the challenge of climbing Howards Lane near Rochester and the 8km course saw five riders in the handicapped event.
Despite being the first race for Mitchell and Harry Shearer, the two were not daunted by the hills and Mitchell still had energy in the tank to sprint past Gabby Drage to take line honours, with Harrison third and Lachlan McKenzie fourth.
Will McKenzie rode the course in the fastest time of 12:19.54.
A few roads across was the start of the under 15s and under 17s race, a 35km course.
Once again, five riders lined-up, with another brother battle for line honours between Patrick and Sam Eddy.
Patrick managed to squeeze out his brother for first, while Sam, using the event to practise his time trialling skills, was second in the fastest time.
They were closely followed by Edie Haley, Kayden Jeffreys and Chase Costello-Manning.
The seniors also started at the Trewin’s course, but needed to complete 56km.
Christie Peters worked hard to stay out the front of the bunch, but, on the last turn a group of six riders caught her.
Unable to maintain the pace, she was dropped to a second group.
With 10m to go to the finish, Liam Harland was seen winding up to sprint for line honours, but Tim Fitzpatrick, Matt Grealy and Luke Burns turned on the pressure.
A four-way sprint was maintained for a photo finish with Harland winning, ahead of Fitzpatrick and Grealy.
