The Warragul Cycling Club held a 50 km handicap race at Nilma North on Saturday afternoon.

Brian Miller riding alone off the nine minute mark had a comfortable win in the cold and wintery conditions.

Jeff Thomson was second and also took out fastest time honors, riding off the two minute mark.

Brad Lester was third, John Salton fourth and Gary Jackson fifth.

Stuart Cuckson out sprinted Brett Williams to win the 20 km juvenile handicap race, and Travis Fromholtz was third.

Mike Goyne still leads the seniors point score with 67 points, John Salton is second with 63 points and Brad Lester and Paul Yeatman are equal third with 56 points.

Stuart Cuckson is the new leader in the juvenile point score, .Stuart has 93 points, Travis Fromholtz is second with 92 points and Brett Williams third with 78 points.

Next Saturday the club will hold a 40 km handicap for seniors and a 10 km handicap for juveniles at Nilma North.

Wayne Kestle rode well to get a second place in the state test races on Sunday.  Brent McCaig was first and Blackburn’s Duncan Smith was third

Fifty riders started the juvenile race, but once the big field hit the hills the lesser riders dropped back.

About a dozen riders were left for the sprint but Brent proved just a bit to fast for Wayne,

Sign of the times was that both Brent and Wayne and also another rider picked at random were drug tested.  The next big race for Wayne will be the State Championships at Gembrook on Sunday, September 8.
