Welcome to the winter solstice issue. Riders all, rejoice, because from here the days get longer again!
The Toy Bricks Toughen Up Series has reached the pointy end. Last week’s round of graded scratch races at Yarra Glen set it all up for an epic finale at Gruyere this week. Kevin Mills and J.C. Wilson have increased their gap to the chasers in the Men’s series, with Rob Giles in hot pursuit and five other riders an outside chance for a podium place. In the Women’s, Kym Petersen is poised – but not quite a certainty – to take top spot, and after that it’s all up for grabs with a well-toughened Dale Maizels a late contender behind Juanita Cadd, Paula McGovern and Susan Williams. Gruyere will decide all.
