Footscray Cycling Club Graded Criteriums – 17 Nov 2011
The Footscray Cycling Club’s criterium racing at the VUT in Hopper’s Crossing on Thursday night saw Club Champion Steve Pilson gap the field and finish well clear of the chasing bunch in A-Grade’s race, with Dom Dudkiewicz taking a very tight and fast bunch sprint just ahead of Queenslander John Murazak, veteran Brett Hickford and Scott Pilson. B-Grade’s race saw a strong breakaway of 7 riders look for like they had it in the bag, only to be caught with 5 minutes to go. A very tight bunch sprint was taken by gun sprinter Glen Hutchinson from Andrew Galliano, with the first 6 riders crossing within a second of each other. C-Grade’s race was taken by Peter Humphries in a bunch sprint, with in form and soon to be C-Grade Steve Humphries taking D-Grade’s sprint over Peter Burke and E-Grade’s Steve Cook taking a well deserved win.
