For the second week in a row at Casey Fields it was a reasonable turn out to try and master the tough conditions. It was windy (perfectly normal) from the start and just got stronger as the racing unfolded. Breakaways were rare and from what is known, only one, E grade, succeeded. Those that tried were left dangling to tire and then slipped back into the bunch through fatigue or as is the case of C grade, a lack of understanding over the bell lap that allowed the bunch to sprint and catch the unsuspecting escapee.
The final placing’s were decided by bunch sprints with heavy legs. Next week the flat track of Dunlop Road will bring some respite.
