3 Day Tour Report 2010

In the “A” grade race, Stuart Smith was leading after the first day and had picked up the King of The Mountain points.  He consolidated his points in that component of the tour on Sunday but was unable to start on Monday as he had a uni exam to sit.  However, his KOM points were sufficient to claim the KOM title.  In the general field, Nick Aitken was racing but was well marked by the other riders.  He took out the opening time trial but was unable to add to his time position via stage finishes.  The end result was a second overall with the winner and third place riders coming from the Warragul club.

In the “B” grade division, Tom Debenham, Eamon Feely, Ronald Purtle, Tony Smith, Tony Clark and Phil Camenzuli were active in the bunch.  Following a good opening time trial and a second in stage 2, Tom Debenham was always in contention.  The end result saw Tom pick up second place overall whilst Ronald and Eamon were equal second in the KOM section.  Ronald ended up 4th overall as well.

In the “C” grade division, the club was well represented with a mix of older riders and our young junior riders.  Peter Hollins started the tour off well with 3rd in the time trial.  He followed up with a second in the second stage and a further 3rd in the final stage.  This effort was just enough for him to claim the win overall.  Elliot Gin also rode well winning the second stage and placing second in the last stage however a lack of consistency saw him finish in 4th place overall.  Kevin Feely picked up a 3rd place in Stage 3 whilst in the Sprint point competition, Steve Piasente finished 2nd and Elliot 3rd.

In addition a points competition was run over all the results for the clubs.  The end result was a win for Warragul 38 points whilst Leongatha had to settle for second on 35 points.
