SuperVets Racing:
Pre Birthday win for John Watson on a new course. Mark Cummings takes Fastest Time.
On Wednesday 19 September Supervets raced a 35 kim handicap at Paraparap. The race was three laps of Nobles Road finishing on Larcombes Road. The field of 14 riders participated under favourable but cold conditions. The race was led away by out-markers Geoff Smith, Dale Jennings and Dennis Sonogan from 27 minutes to 22 minutes. These riders were overtaken early in the race by the 16 minute bunch of Jeremy Tatchell, David O’Dwyer and John Watson. The chasing group of Barry Primmer, Murray Riggs, Kent Fuller and Ross West broke up mid-race and failed to form into a strong chasing combination. Meanwhile Barry Primmer and Murray Riggs formed a partnership which unfortunately broke up after one and a half laps. At this stage scratch were gathering them in but in the process dropped Laurie Fitzsimons who then teamed with Barry Primmer. Prior to this Carl Judd had already been dropped from the chasing scratch bunch. The remaining scratch riders Mark Cummings and Peter McWaters finished hard but were unable to overtake the leaders. Finally David O’Dwyer and John Watson stayed away and crossed the line together, with John Watson winning by a small margin. Fastest time: and third Mark Cummings 1.3.30. Winner’s time: 1.19.50. 4th Peter McWaters 5th Kent Fuller

John Watson.

Supervets Racing:
Juddy breaks way & still manages to out sprint scratch! 1st Carl Judd 2nd & Fastest Time Peter Hunt 3rd Mark Cummings 4th Laurie Fitzsimons 5th Tina Stenos 6th Jeremy Tatchell. Wednesday 12th Sept 2018

The race today at the supervets was a 3 lap 37k Handicap, around the Paraparap circuit. The weather was overcast with a strong North Westerly wind. Seventeen entries were received. D Jennings and G Smith was first away of 27 mins followed by K Mansfield of 21 mins. J Faulkner and J Tatchell of 16 mins. K Fuller, I Sumner and R West were next away of 14 mins followed by, M Riggs, P Bubb, D O’Dwyer and L Targett of 8 mins. The 5 min bunch of L Fitzimmons, C Judd and T Stenos were next away followed by the two scratch men M Cummings and P Hunt.

The first lap saw little change in the bunches order as they all made steady ground. On the second lap the 5 min bunch which was working very well together caught the 8 min bunch, minus M Riggs who had punctured, as they approached the Forest Rd hills. With perhaps a little more pace over the hill Judd found himself of the front of the group. The combined bunches decided to leave him out there and drag him back later in the race. The front and middle markers although making some headway didn’t seem to be combining as they normally do, the strong head wind up Missery Lane no doubt the main reason for this, making the going harder than normal. However this strong wind was assisting the 5 min bunch and scratch started to close the gap on the leaders. As the leading bunches, which still hadn’t combined, were coming towards the end of Grays Rd and down Hendy Main Rd were being caught and passed by the 5 min bunch with Judd still out in front and scratch not far behind. Up Missery Lane the last time the scratch bunch caught the 5 min bunch just before the rise up the hill to the chicane and caught Judd as they went through the cnr into Larcombs Rd with the finish line only 800 metres ahead. M Cummings made the move early to give his co marker, P Hunt, a long lead out for the finish, but it was Judd that reacted quicker than Hunt to this move. When Cummings pulled to the side Hunt made his move for the finish line but Judd was able to get a wheel in front as they crossed the line.

Results : 1st C Judd 2nd P Hunt 3rd M Cummings 4th L Fitzimmons 5th T Stenos 6th J Tatchell 7th L Targett 8th John Faulkner 9th K Fuller 10th R West 11th P Bubb
FT : P Hunt 1:07:20
