ARARAT - The Ararat Cycling Club was forced to abandon its competition last Saturday due to heavy rain.
The final weeks of the club's track season are running on Saturday afternoons because of lighting problems, with consequent depletion of senior riders.
Junior divisions continue to be strong however, with the previous week's racing hotly contested.
The combined A and B grade field comprised Aidan Marr with the Satchell brothers Todd and Alan.
It was a tough workout for Marr, with Todd and Alan taking first and second in the five lap scratch race and the secret distance scratch race.
Marr held his own with wins in the two handicap races, even when his mark was sharply trimmed in the second race.
Alice Culling beat Calder Richards to the line in the opening three lap scratch race, while in the third lap handicap her attempt to close on Richards in the second lap failed and the placings were reversed.
The flag dropped in lap three of the secret distance scratch race, making it a five lap race in which Culling kept Tyson Marr at bay for another win.
Alex Van Opstal looked favourable in the opening three lap D grade scratch race, but was disqualified in favour of Dylan Woods.
Woods later paired with Jye Turner and won the D grade team sprint and was immediately recalled to partner Lachlan Marr in the C grade team sprint, but this time victory went to the opposing team of Culling and Tyson Marr.
Lara Van Opstal won the E grade two lap scratch race with sister Sophia second.
In the two lap handicap it was Izaiyah Turner in first place, while Jenae Marr successfully defended the front mark to win the second handicap race.
In the E grade 250-metre dash, Sophia Van Opstal scored the fastest time.
Tomorrow will conclude the 2012/13 track season.
