7 May 2011 - The state's leading trainer and driver combination of Glenn and Daryl Douglas teamed up for a win with a difference when victorious in the Decron Tandem Bike Challenge at Cranbourne.
Run as a charitable fundraising activity for the Windermere community group, the novel race on 2 wheels brought together some of the state's leading identities who competed over the sprint trip of 220 metres. Representing Bendigo's Anderson Racing, the Douglas boys got an absolute fly from the mobile barrier and ran out comfortable winners from the determined Hy Gain Feeds team of Lisa Miles and Kate Gath and the Aldebaran Park pairing of Chris Lang Jr and Ken Tippet. The sport's elder statesmen in Chris Alford and Gavin Lang earned a spray from the Woodside Park team manager Noel Alexander after finishing a weakening 4th while Simone Walker and Tracey Lousada weighed in at the end of the field earning them the title of Slow Spice and Slower Spice from Seelite Windows and Doors boss Michael Taranto. The girls should be pleased with their efforts to raise funds for Winderemere on the night however and will now head to Cambodia for the 310km Windermere Adventure Challenge having raised over $10,000. Both Simone and Tracey (who works for the Cranbourne Club) are to be commended for their commitment to the Windermere organisation which supports disadvantaged children and families.
