John Cain wins Australian Masters 4 TT in Ballarat

Written by Mal Sawford

The Australian Masters Road Championships kicked off in Ballarat today with a 20km Individual Time Trial starting at the Victory Arch and tackling an out and back course along the Avenue of Remberance.

Conditions were good, and the generally flat course descended slightly to the turn around, with the wond in rider's faces, but giving a little assistance on the gradual climb to the finish.

With the TT specialists out in force, there were some sizzling times recorded. As is often the case in time trials, there was a little confusion with timing – most categories actually rode the course either one or two minutes slower than the results show, but the time gaps between riders in the same age group were all correct.

John Cain (TFM-Celtic Decor) lived up to his pre-race favourtism from those in the know (which clearly didn't include the seeding panel!) with a great ride to win the M4 division. Nicole Whitburn (Prime Estate) claimed second in Womens M1.

Narrowly missing medals were TFM-Celtic's Gerry Donnelly (4th M5), Dennis Bowen-Day (4th M7), Peter Quibell (5th M5), Paul Mason (8th M2), Bryan Walsh (9th M6) and Dan Ives (10th M8).
