A large contingent of local riders filled the 62 strong field that turned out for the Windeyer Progress Association's first endurance ride last Sunday.
There were a total of 26 riders from the local region that took on the course, a number competing in the 80-kilometre ride with resounding results.
Thirty-two took on the longer 80-kilometre course, among them Rylstone's Alan Watts and Mudgee's Garry Bennett who took line honours on the day with Richmond competitor Nicole Wilson.
Watts also took out the heavy-weight division, Bennett the middle-weight and Wilson the light-weight. It took Watts around six-and-a-half-hours to complete the course and arrived back at base at 10.55am, after they had started 30-minutes earlier than expected because of perceived hot conditions."
