VIDEO: Dropped by Dyball! John Beatty Handicap 2018

Ben Dyball looks back during John Beatty Memorial Handicap 2018

Imagine turning up to your local athletics meet and sprinting against Usain Bolt. Or, at a park cricket match, batting against Brett Lee. You’d lose every single time, but still, what an experience!

For me – a cycling-obsessed fanboy – last Saturday’s John Beatty Handicap was a bit like that. I had the privilege of racing against, and almost instantly being dropped by, one of the strongest cyclists in Australia. A pretty awesome encounter for this club-level B-grader.
