It was great to see affable Baden Burke from Canberra Cycling Club kicking from the bunch to win the John Woodman Memorial Wagga to Albury Cycling Classic. He even gave a very PRO victory salute. With a Northerly pushing the bunches most of the way, only limit and 2nd limit came together with just a few hundred metres to go after our own Lisa Barry lead a late attack up Jindera Gap. Video of the end of the race (thanks to Chris Little).
