The Gallipoli Cup 1984
My first ever big road race win, The Gallipoli Cup (I think), approx 80kms. First as in first over the line, not Fastest Time! Mid 1984.
I went from Limit Bunch to Scratch Bunch in 12 months - something I have always been very proud of. Someone told me (at the time) they had never seen anyone do that in such a short time frame before, so that was really nice to hear, otherwise I'd never had given much thought - I just thought that was what one did! Mind you, that meant I had the strength, speed, and stamina to ride on Scratch but rode with the finesse of a Novice. I had to put up with many a swear word directed at me, letting me know so!
