Warrnambool Veteran’s Cycling Club is expecting a big and strong line-up of riders for the annual Jack Brennan and Robbie Hall Memorial road race on Sunday.

Spokesman Barry Warren said the 62-kilometre race was held in honour of two club legends who had worked tirelessly.

He said it was appropriate the club’s biggest race of the year honoured the pair. Brennan passed away from cancer 23 years ago while his son-in-law, Hall, lost his battle with cancer three years ago. Last year, 86 riders contested the race won by Warrnambool’s Glenn Scouller. Sunday’s race would attract a quality field, Warren said. “Our vets riders are as good as any in Australia,” he said.

“We have some guys going really well who will take it up with the guys coming from Melbourne, Ballarat, Geelong and other parts of Victoria.” He predicted Scouller would be joined in the scratch bunch by fellow Warrnambool club members David Tozer, Simon Walsh, David Serra and Brian McNamara.

Warren said the club was keen to attract a crowd for the race.

“We encourage people to come out and have a look, set up at the Wangoom Store, we go by the Wangoom Store three times.” Sunday’s race starts at 10am.
