Andrew Fraser dominated the sprint to win the Stratford Cycling Club's Walker Shield race over 50km on Sunday.

A field of 38 riders faced the starter, with the 14-minute bunch working well together to fill the first four placings.

 Fraser held off Steve Smith, Chris Peters and Dave Taylor in a time of one hour, 29 minutes and 34 seconds.

The scratch bunch for the 02 Project/ Bike Barn-sponsored race, Mel Titter, Greg Marfell, Jason Thomason and Simon Brown, had to work hard to catch the six-minute-break bunch, which was strengthened by the return to racing of Geoff Mackle and Mark Magee.

 Titter recorded the fastest time of 1hr 17min 16sec.

I long for the Summer of 69 (with apologies to Bryan Adams)
