MITCH Barrow capped a great night of racing as he won the Anderson Family-sponsored Memorial Wheelrace (2000m) at last Thursday night's Bendigo and District Cycling Club track racing.
From a mark of 210 metres, Barrow powered to an emphatic victory on the Barnard Street track.
After a great chase from the 110m mark, Angus Gill fought on to be runner-up as Belinda Bailey (220m) and Sam Buckell off the backmark of 70m were next best.
A winning streak by Barrow began in the B-grade 10-lap scratch race and was followed by victory in the Memorial Wheelrace and then B-grade 12-lap motorpace.
It was a top night of racing by Madeleine Douglas in the juniors, and also the DCK Real Estate Crystal Classic women's wheelrace.
After starting from the 180m mark, Douglas sprinted to a fine win in the Crystal Classic from Charlie Gartside (220m), Tekeyah Burgess (160m) and backmarker Belinda Bailey from the 45m mark.
The A-grade 15-lap scratch race was won by Sam Buckell from Angus Gill.
In the finale to the night, Gill won the A-grade 12-lap motorpace from Jamie Coles, Sam Buckell and Scott Keating.
A newcomer to track cycling, Victor Cook was in hot form again as he took out the C-grade scratch races of eight and 10 laps.
In the juniors racing, Harry Byrne was in hot form as he raced from the 80m mark to win the under-15 and under-17 1200m handicap final from Madeleine Douglas 120m, Max Kornmann 150m, Lucy Hall 40m, and James Tupper off scratch.
Other riders to impress throughout the junior racing included Tobias Jelbart, Jack Ketterer, Amelia McLean, Bryce Nicholls and Arie Riley.
