Devonport rider John Rayner continued his good early season form with victory in the 50th annual Rosebery Wheelrace at the weekend.The revamped Rosebery Carnival went ahead in glorious sunshine, setting the scene for an exciting week of cycling action at the time-honoured Tasmanian Christmas Carnivals.

Rayner won the PCCCT Wheelrace at the season-opening carnival in November and won the 1000m lightning handicap at George Town in early December before taking his excellent form to Tasmania’s West Coast.

Rayner’s win in the $1000 handicap wheelrace also elevated him to the lead on Tasmania’s Order-of-Merit prize money table with some rich pickings now just around the corner.
