With the Tour Down Under on in Adelaide the numbers were down, especially in the higher grades, – only six starters for a-grade, and it was their turn for an elimination crit – a fast and furious warm up to the hour’s racing to follow. It was windy in the car park, it was worse on the track – breakaways were not going to be the flavour of the day, attrition the likely scenario. Despite the conditions and the elimination race a-grade was intense. B-grade was much the same with a few trying their luck off the front throughout the race. C-Grade, there was no money on the likely end result but that didn’t stop Peter Web trying to buck the norm – all to no avail, a bunch kick deciding the placings. D-grade, another big grade, after losing a few early stayed together to the end as did e & f grades.
