McKenzie Sprints to Anderson Rosebowl Victory

The open grade 40km handicap event covered a course twice around the Benmorven/ Ridge/Godfreys Rd course. The very strong winds blew the field apart with the scratch riders dominating procedures. The 3 scratch riders hit the front with 8km to go when they pulled in Richard Olliver off the 3min break group. The ride home down New Renwick Rd was full on with speeds around 7okph. Jeremy McKenzie took line honours by about half a wheel over Gerard van Antwerpen followed in by Olliver and Craig Harper.
The junior under 17 grade Keighley Cup event over 18km saw lone scratch rider emulate his Dad’s feat, with a solo ride through the field, for line honours. Marcus Macdonald (off 8m) was second.
