Seccombe lifts to new cycling level
GLADSTONE cyclist Brian Seccombe recorded a career-best second place in the Rockhampton Tour 32km A grade kermese road race last Saturday.
In his first race back in the top grade after having recently been demoted to B grade, Seccombe's performance would indicate he hasn't settled for getting back to his best, instead lifting another level again.
The Gladstone rider was bet-tered only by Rockhampton's Jack Rassie in a tight sprint finish to the line, initiated by fellow harbour city competitor Matt Jenkin.
Also securing a second place finish was Gladstone D grade competitor Adam Sykes.
Jenkin, a former coach of Australian representative Lorian Graham, was yesterday shocked to have learnt of her injury in an accident involving the Australian Institute of Sport women's road squad.
