Below is a preview, click to read the full post

News update from the National Masters in Griffith over the weekend.

In the MMAS10+ crit and road race that legend of the bitumen - Richard Spinks - won double gold on the weekend. Spinksy is peerless in the umm slightly more aged end of the masters categories, and still loves to win.

In the MMAS1 ITT, Harro (green bar-tape) Morgan won silver, being edged out from the gold medal by just 3 seconds - soooo close.

Congrats to these two medallists - photos of Harro below and will attach one of Richard soon.
