2016 Grafton to Inverell

Hamilton had quite a few members in this iconic race.

In A Grade Mitch Neumann had a good race, and tried to bridge across to the break of 11 who had a 9 minute gap at the start of the Gibraltar range and paid the price a little but still finished within 10 minutes of the winner's record time. A good ride Mitch!

In B Grade Calem Wilcox took third place, and Ryan Wilson 5th place, Reuben Phillips 16th and Ian Johnston 24th, Barrie Mead 27th, Anthony Zahra 36th and Matt Baxby 52nd.

In C Grade Wayne Wilson fought hard after missing the early moves, arriving in Inverell in just over 8 hours, catching Nicholas Rider and riding together to the line.
