Hands takes Cliff Hanger Finish

The Tinwald Cycling Club contested the Calder Stewart, Spraymarks Group, 50km handicap event around the Swamp Road block on Sunday. The final result was only decided in the shadow of the finishing line with the back markers catching the front markers inside the final 100m.

It was Steve Hands who hit the line the strongest to claim victory from co-markers Tony Ward and Nathan Tew.

Hands' efforts also earned him fastest time honours covering the course in a slick 69.29.

Brad Hudson took fourth place with front markers Liz Wylie and Nigel Leary bravely holding on to round out the top six.

The juniors and Division 2 contested a 25km race.

Matthew Clough continued his rise in the sport securing first place and fastest time riding the distance in 44.19.

Maddison Clark chalked up another top ride to take second place with Bella Roulston charging into third.

Luke Skinner took fourth place spoils with Ryan Jackson continuing his good run of form in fifth place.

Kerry Clough ensured a Clough family double by claiming the division 2 top honours with Andy Skinner hard on his heals in second place. Janette Hooper took third and fastest time honours.
