Sunday June 14 saw the 5th edition of the annual 80km Avanti Classic handicap race held on an undulating circuit based at Lowood and and travelling around Lake Wivenhoe. The front markers had 33min start on the red hot scratch bunch but would have needed every minute if they were to get the $2000 that was on offer for first across the line. They did get the money for first through the first lap but like the rest of the field the extreme speed of the scratch riders was too much.

Jonathan Cantwell, Lifecycle club rider, led them home with ease and a new race record to boot. It was a great effort considering he had only returned from the USA on Friday having just ridden the Philly International finishing a creditable 14th after being help up in a crash in the final sprint.

Junior world record holder Michael Hepburn ran second followed by evergreen Cameron Hughes.
