A strong field of thirty riders completed the 30-kilometre Wongarbon short course event at Dubbo Cycle Club's second road race of the season.
With several Dubbo riders away competing in the Cootamundra handicap event, the field was bolstered by riders from Orange and Mudgee Cycle clubs looking to test themselves against Dubbo riders.
Tim Hines gave a 29 minute head start to some of the field in the handicap event but he was still able to pass all riders to be both first across the line and fastest rider of the day.
Hines averaged 40km per hour on a very windy course.
Young star Haylee Fuller was able to do what very few have been able to do this year and hang with Hines.
Leaving the start line only one and a half minutes before Hines, Fuller was able to stick with the eventual winner to be the fastest female rider of the day and finish across the line in second.
Mudgee rider Sian Potter gave Fuller competition for fastest female, finishing across the line in third position.
It was Kurt Eather who led the Dubbo contingent at the Cootamundra Haycutters handicap on the weekend.
Eather gave up to 25 minutes head start to many riders in the 130-strong field but still managed to finish in the prize money in seventh position.
It was a hard day in the saddle for the rest of the Dubbo riders with Dave Gerrish, Luke Ensor and Max Newton all finishing mid pack.
The junior riders raced the Sheraton road course for their first race of the year.
Sisters Imogen and Makayla Fuller went head-to-head in a sprint to finish one and two while Georgia Farr was close behind in third. This was a good hit out for these riders as they travel to compete in Canberra this weekend.
Lachlan Farr finished ahead of Jarryd Fuller and Cooper Farr in the Under 11 road race while Jasmine Fuller won the participation event.
Local racing this week will be at the 40km Bennelong road course with a 2pm start.
Many of the club's riders will be competing in the Canberra Junior and Women's Tour where Simone Grounds and Haylee Fuller are sure to feature strongly.
