Mark Windsor,Stacey Fish,Jim Lavis,Bruce Goddard andRosemary Hastings showed why the Bathurst club should be considered a force to be reckoned with thanks to their strong performances at Griffith.

Windsor was the pick of the bunch with not only a gold medal in the men’s masters six (MMAS6) road race but also the overall championship for his age group.

Lavis(MMA8) also picked up an overall champions jersey thanks to his consistent performance across the three racing disciplines –a second, third and fourth.

It ends a long hunt for Windsor in his quest to win anoverall champion’s jersey at Masters Nationals.

“I’ve won the road race in the past but it’s about trying to get the results across all the different events and I’ve never been able to get that champion’s jersey before,” he said.

“I’ve been trying hard for many years to get that jersey. It was very satisfying to win.”

Windsor producedan impressive breakaway winin the road race to win by 22seconds overSouth Australian pairing Douglas Berry and Martyn Hughes.

With many eyes watching his every move Windsor had to be careful in picking the right time to make his movein the 70 kilometre event.

“I get pretty well marked so I’ve got to do a lot of attacks, a lot of which are dummy ones. If I can get away I know I’ve got the best time trialling ability in the field, so if I do they’ve got to work hard to get me back,” he said.

“It was all about trying to build that gap before the final climb …so I made the move about 15km out from the finish and it stuck.”

Windsor’s sixth in the criterium and third in the time trial were good enough for him to claim the champion’s jersey.

Fish (WMA3)and Lavis picked up silver medals in theirroad races while Goddard (MMA7) and Hastings (WMA8) found bronze.

Windsor said the Bathurst contingent should be incredibly proud of their achievement.

“To have five separate medallists in the road race is amazing for Bathurst,” he said.

“They’re a quality group who all have the experience to be up there. Everyone was quite supportive of each other and everyone went out there with the right attitude.”
