Viney wins Gunns Plains 11km

Devonport’s Rod Viney has comfortably won the Professional Cross Country Club of Tasmania’s M & S Wilson Petroleum / Brown Family 11km handicap at Gunns Plains on Sunday from David Sweetman and a fast finishing Shane Hanson.

2015RodVineyWEBA 600-race veteran, Sunday was Viney’s sixth career win since starting with the club back in 1987.

Viney has enjoyed a number of promising finishes this season but excelled on Sunday on the fast, flat and longer course, taking the lead from go-marker Liane Hanson just a little under halfway left to race and was never seriously threatened for the remainder.

In the final few kilometres David Sweetman made the most of his quicker start, tenaciously holding on to claim runner-up ahead of a storming Shane Hanson in one of his best performances this year.

The Gunns Plains circuit was introduced into the club’s programme only four years ago and on Sunday attracted a good field of runners who competed in cold, wet conditions on a flat, easy circuit course.

Ellen Elphinstone ran well with an effort that would instill some confidence in her for next week’s Feature Race while Kim Reader and Ron Harris both enjoyed good runs.

Club champions Thomas Murton and Judy Ray both collected fastest time honours.
